On tap at Capone's during Philly Beer Week. My wife actually ordered this and I got to take sips and sniffs, wishing ever so desperately that I'd decided to get it, and knowing that my driving would be fatally impaired if I decided to order one more beer. Sigh, life.

This beer looks like any other Maduro, but it's not. The aroma is that of cinnamon, oats, and large grains of sugar - and boy oh boy is the best yet to come. I know this kind of sentiment is tossed around a lot on BA - but I have never drank anything that is closer to a liquified dessert than this. It absolutely captures the taste and the mouthfeel of an oatmeal raisin cookie without any of the crumbs. Big molasses sweetness, cinnamon, raisin, grain - this, to me, is the perfect example of what a brown ale can aspire to be. Bravo, Cigar City. This is the Maduro to try.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle.

Heard a lot about this beer from friends but have been hesitant to try it as it seemed a bit much to expect a beer to taste like Oatmeal raisin cookies.

I know I am serving the beer too cold as I had put it in the fridge 6 hours ago and meant to take it out about 1/2 hour ago. So it has about a 1/4" head with light lacing that dissipates relatively quickly. Took 1 quick sip and decided to wait a while to let it warm.

Wow, what a difference. Smell is not overbearing but distinctly there. I can smell cinnamon, raisin, outmeal and a distinct sweetness. Reminds me of smelling Cinnabon at the mall.

It's fairly well carbonated but thinner in mouthfeel than I expected..but WHAT a taste. Truly like an Oatmeal raisin cookie! Cinnamon, raisin and I swear I can taste the ICING on the top of the cookie. I bought a 4 pack of these and it certainly won't be my last!

The real kicker for me is that distinct icing taste that seems to coat the underlying cookie. What a great brew!
