Pours a dark brown with no head. Aroma of cinnamon, sweet cookie batter and awesomeness. Taste follows only more intense. Such a solid beer. I wish they could bottle this again!

12 oz. can from Homer321 - thanks again, Sean! Pours a mostly clear amber with a deeper hue and a finger of fizzy beige head that settles into a ring and small island of film. Notes of cinnamon, vanilla, toast, brown sugar, nuts, raisins, tobacco, and earth. Light-bodied, with modest carbonation and a thin, sweet, lightly spicy, lightly tangy, earthy mouthfeel. Good, but didn’t quite live up to my expectations. ljthiessen (1348) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 15, 2017
Can. Brown pour with a beige head. Sweet oatmeal raisin cookie aroma, lots of raisin and cinnamon, kind of creamy. Taste is a little less sweet and less pronounced, but really nice. drjoeng (1257) - SINGAPORE - MAY 1, 2017
5.5%ABV. Brown ale.
Tapped out dark brown. 26 SRM.
Nose is roasted nutty with roasted chestnuts.
Mouthfeel is drip coffee. Palate has caramel, light toffee, roasted chestnuts and a strong base of wheat toast. Element of ume fruitiness, like the wet plum preserves, maybe prunes. Coffee flavor. Fred82 (2324) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - APR 30, 2017
Can. Nose brown biscuity malts. Light raisons with cinnamon. Quite malty. Taste raisins and cinnamon. Quite hoppy. Nice raisins notes. Toasted Raisins bread. Interesting. alexsdad06 (10378) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 7, 2017
12 oz can from Cigar City in the hotel room. Pours a clear mahogany brown color with a medium sized beige head. The aroma has mainly cinnamon and raisins, simple but nice. The flavor has raisins, cinnamon, oatmeal sweetness, I can get the nice oatmeal cookie malts, hints of the vanilla, definitely a positive spin on the basic brown ale.

On tap at CCB tasting room. Pours a nice, dark copper. Smells of vanilla and cinnamon. Taste is very smooth, vanilla and cinnamon in a rich dark beer. This has always been one of my favorites. jbruner (4734) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JAN 15, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2017 Pours a deep brown on tap with fluffy tan head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of sweet fruit and cookie notes, dead on for the name. Taste follows, oatmeal raisin cookies for sure, a hint of spice, but mostly sweet. Well done. stevencon (522) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - MAY 20, 2016
Muddy chocolate brown body with off white head. Deep fudge aroma with notes of dried fruit and caramel. Sweet but not cloying. Caramel malt chocolate notes and hints of dried fruit. Well made and well rounded. This beer sounds like a gimmick but its not. Classic cigar city. RRistow12 (861) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - MAR 14, 2016
Tasted on draft at Hunahpu Day. Honestly tasted and smells like an oatmeal raisin cookie. Sometimes not a fan of the gimmicky flavors but this is awesome. Definitely one of my favorite Browns if not the favorite I've had.
