Growler from Spirits Unlimited in Brick, NJ. Translucent reddish brown color topped by a moderate frothy khaki head. Sweet toasted malt aroma has notes of cinnamon raisin bagels. Bittersweet roasted malt flavor has notes of cinnamon, dark raisins and burnt toast. Some vanilla notes, though subdued. Somewhat thin bodied, though flavorful. All in all a decent effort.

Draft at Mile, pours dark brown almost black color with small to medoum off white head. Random lace. Aroma is spot on: cinnamon raisins, lift chocolate, malt, and vanilla bean. Flavor is dissapointing with a sour apple or sour licorice thing noticed up front with some dark fruits and light roast. Lighter bodied. It’s not awful but a far cry from cigar city oatmeal raisin cookie back in the day dmac (6646) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - MAR 16, 2015
Draft at BWW. Poured a super dark brown with a smaller super light beige foamy head. Aroma/flavor of cinnamon, vanilla bean, raisin skin, burnt cookie. Medium body with slightly stronger carbonation and an average duration on the aftertaste. pineypower (3353) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - MAR 15, 2015
Mini growler. Pours out dark brown with a decent tan head. Aroma is of cinnamon, raisin, vanilla bean some light caramel, molasses. Nice Aroma. Taste is much the same but does not come together as well as the Aroma, I mean it’s definitely still solid. Nice balance in sweetness and light bitterness. I’m a fan DesertDevil (699) - Arizona, USA - MAR 11, 2015
Growler. Sweet nose of cinnamon, brown sugar, a hefty amount of raisin, molasses, and wet planting soil. Dark brown in color with a filmy tan ring head. Semisweet taste of dark chocolate, solid raisin, light cinnamon, and oatmeal with a finish that’s more bitter (moderate earthy bite) than I expected. Medium body that’s definitely to style for a porter. A decent beer.
