Has a cinnamon aroma and a nice note of cinnamon on what is already a tasty malt backbone.

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 the brewery. Pours a very dark brown with medium beige head that lasts. The aroma is cocoa, roast, raisin, wood. Medium body, nuts, cocoa, raisin, caramel, nice sweetness, very good.

RLiddell (129) - Valrico, Florida, USA - MAR 5, 2017
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 (4565) - 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.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DocJitsu (1928) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - FEB 5, 2016
Pours a medium to dark brown with a khaki colored head. Gingerbread, faint, cinnamon, and Bakers chocolate on the nose. Full mouthfeel getting moderately astringent toward the finish. Cinnamon macaroon flavor up front. Raisin oatmeal cookie comes through toward the finish. More chocolate gets expressed at the finish and after.

kathouse (1808) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - OCT 15, 2015
A nice cookie spice of cinnamon and baked sugars waft from the clear brown body. Not much head but doesnt need one. Raisins are definitely apparent in flavor and finish. Yummy.

The name says it all. Dessert beers designed to taste like one particular dessert are almost always set up to fail. Cigar City has crafted one of the exceptions. Holy hell. I dont even like oatmeal raisin cookies all that much and I could drink this stuff by the gallon. Im convinced everything Cigar City touches turns out delicious.

Draft/Fest. A- Cookies, raisins, cinnamon, vanilla. A- Brown color, dark liquid, off white head. T- Oatmeal raisin cookies, spices. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, complex finish. O- This was nothing but oatmeal raisin cookies in liquid form and that is a great thing. And the fact that its a brown ale and not an imperial stout makes me appreciate it that much more. So good.
