COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Who doesnt love the warming feeling of walking into grandmas house to the smell of freshly baked cookies? So how do you recreate that in a beer? Just add loads of raisins, oatmeal and cookie spicing to an imperial milk stout and memories come to life in libation form.

Bottle from total wine Raleigh nc. Does gave that oatmeal coockie taste. Has a bit of lactose and rasin and cinnamon that really rounds it out. Not really sweet which I quite like. Drink this all day if I had more.

ClarkVV (6296) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 25, 2017
Draught at the Avenue, 12/9/16.
Dark mahogany-to-ebony, seems to be of high clarity, with a light-tan head atop showing moderate retention.
Lactic acidity mixes with sweet toffee and caramel in the nose, as raisin puree-like notes and light plum/prune provide deeper complexity. Soft vanilla, sweetbread and a bit of ashy roast dot the finish, with no alcohol or flaw. Pretty cohesive, though a bit on the dry/acidic/fruity side, which isnt necessarily a bad thing.
The flavor is more enjoyable than the nose, IMO, with soft, sticky, caramel-toffee-raisin-like malt flavors mixing with moderate amounts of lactose to give a dry, lightly acidic character that is complemented by more dark fruits and a strong roast character that gives the impression of creme brulee, on the finish. Light breadiness, moderate acidity and caramel linger nicely and the beer never gets too sweet, roasty or boozy, a big problem for many/most imperial stouts. Really nice use of lactose here, mostly because its used in moderation. Surprisingly drinkable for a beer of its size.

nimbleprop (7931) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 6, 2017
50cl bottle pours a muddy black with some tan head. Nose has some malt, licorice, black pepper, cinnamon sticks, a little clove, chocolate, Dr Pepper. Flavor has more of the same, cola, chocolate, licorice, spice, cinnamon, vanilla, some graham cracker. Full bodied and sweet, but fairly drinkable too.

Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - DEC 30, 2016
Poured black, brown at edges, slight head. Aroma was milk chocolate, cinammon, vanilla, faint fruit. Flavor matched - and spectacularly well. The flavors all worked in perfect combination with each other, and the body was just pure silk. Loved this, and I usually shy away from spiced brews.

adnielsen (10583) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 27, 2016
Bottle in Winter Park with Justin. Deep brown appearance with a dark brown head. Aroma has notes of Hersheys chocolate, metallic, chalk, and herbs. Moderate to moderate plus sweetness but certainly not cloying. Cinnamon and chocolate flavors. Pretty good in a small dose.

mnoud (318) - Martinsburg, West Virginia, USA - DEC 25, 2016
2016.12.25-500ml bottle from bottle A nice milk stout. Well blended with the cinnamon and vanilla, not getting much of the raisin. Calling it "cookie" seems a bit of a stretch but certain mouthfuls seem to be a little more biscuit-y than others. An enjoyable drink.

kathouse (1752) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - DEC 17, 2016
There more roasted malt than chocolate which leaves some bitterness in the finish. Full bodied and creamy. The raisins and spices are apparent in the aroma and help to balance the flavor. Overall, a nice treat but not memorable.
