Big thanks to Dolfan84 for this - I knew if it tasted half as good as the name lead me to believe then I would be in for a treat!
A - Deep dark brown. Hints of a ruby color hit the glass in the bottom. Half a finger head that presents itself in the perfect off-white contrast to the body.
S - Oh goodness, is grandma in the kitchen cooking? Smells just as the name implies. Strong oatmeal, chocolate, bready, and a hint of cinnamon and raisin.
T - Just like the smell. More bread/oatmeal flavors with chocolate and the raisin/cinnamon coming in at the end. Also a little nutty taste. This baby gets better as it warms up.
M - Medium/light body. Perfect carbonation - I could drink two growlers of this in one sitting, no problem. The lower ABV makes this all the better.
O - Really enjoyed this one. I found myself tasting an oatmeal cookie minutes after finishing this. The taste really lingers and that's a great thing. Would seek this out again - one of the better brown ales I've had.
Thanks again Dolfan84!
