On tap at a location that will remain nameless. Poured a clera dark brown with a smallish beige head. Aroma was awesome, just like oatmeal rasin cookies. Taste is also just like oatmeal rasin cookies, as hard is that is to say. The use of spice and dark fruit really peg the oatmeal rasin flavor perfectly. The mouth was smooth and medium bodied. Overall, an awesome brew. Hard to rate this very low, though it does not taste like a beer. Not sure if that matters... zdk (1917) - New York, New York, USA - FEB 21, 2010

Draft at RnH. Pours brown with a beige head. Sweet fresh baked cookie aroma, with raisins and oatmeal. Literally tastes like liquid cookie. Very tasty. Sammy (12762) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 19, 2010
UPDATED: FEB 21, 2010 On tap at Cigar City takes NYC event at Rattle ’N’ Hum Yummy,though on the sweet(sugar and lots of malt) and spicy side: cinammon, this kicked early.
The chocolate malt, raisiny taste was in the background. Dark with a whisp of head, appropriately carbonated. Cute, but I could not drink pints of this. j12601 (13099) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - FEB 18, 2010
On tap at Rattle N Hum for their Cigar City event. Pours a clear ruby brown with a thin white head. Sweet cinnamon, spice, oatmeal. Throughout the course of the evening I must have heard 10-15 people say what I said uninfluenced after the first time I tried it: “Smells and tastes like what I wanted the Cookie Jar Porter to taste like.” Like a liquefied beer cookie. Sweet malty, more cookie flavor. Phenomenally good flavor.

Tap at Rattle n’ Hum. Deep amber pour. The aroma comes out of a cookbook: cinnamon, raisins, brown sugar... you get the idea. There is a bit of an excess of cinnamon, as though we’re making spicy oatmeal raisin cookies. A really awesome smell all together. The flavor is deconstructed oatmeal raisin cookie: margarine, brown sugar, oak, and raisins. The body is a bit flat. Slight warming cinnamon finish. The flavors are a bit more earthy than the aroma. I want to smell this some more. Not necessarily my favorite Cigar City beer but possibly the most memorable. tgncc (3145) - Bellmore, New York, USA - FEB 18, 2010
The aroma is oatmeal, brown sugar, fruit, nuts. Like a cookie. The appearance is a clear dark red, white head. The flavor is awesome, oatmeal, brown sugar, raisins, fruity, excellent. The finish is light hop bittering, sweet, oatmeal. Really like an Oatmeal raisin cookie. CCB really nailed this one. Teege (375) - Orlando, Florida, USA - FEB 1, 2010
on draft at cigar city brewing. pours a dark brown. oats and nuts on the nose along with some cinnamon and spices. Good dark malt base. it tastes literally just like a liquid oatmeal raisin cookie and a good one at that, which isn’t even something i’d think i’d like that much, but that just shows what i know. this is a really delicious beer. glennmastrange (2922) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - FEB 1, 2010
Tap. Heavy aromas of bread and roasted oatmeal for the malt, light herbs for the hops, with loads of vanilla, ginger, cinnamon and raisin in the background. Head is large, creamy, light brown with some lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is hazy dark copper/brown. Flavor starts lightly to moderately sweet and acidic, then finishes moderately acidic and bitter. Palate is on the heavier side of medium, slick with a lively carbonation. This smells and tastes exactly like oatmeal raisin cookies. I wouldn’t have thought i’d like it. StFun (567) - Indiana, USA - JAN 31, 2010
After trying to get this beer for a long, long time, juiceisloose hooked me up big time. This beer is great. Pours a blackish-purple-brown that just kind of looks like a raisin. Aroma is fantastic; oats, spice, brown sugar, toasted nuts, and a hint of chocolate. Light sweetness in flavor, with a hint of coffee and toffee. A tad too thin on the palate, but dammit this beer was awesome and I’m very thankful I had the chance to try this. Thanks Justin!
