Notes/Commercial Description:
"O. R. C." pours brown in color with an aroma reminiscent of oatmeal raisin cookies (of course). Mild cinnamon and vanilla notes upfront in the flavor with emerging raisin notes. Lingering spices in the finish with hints of toasted bread.

Reviewed from notes. Had on-tap at CCB tasting room. Poured into pint glass.

A: Pours a hazy dark brown, with a one-finger creamy white head. Minimal visible carbonation.

S: Brown roasted malts, raisins, spices. Just a little cardboard as it warms.

T: Sweet raisins, cinnamon, roasty malts. Finishes with a dark fruit sweetness and spices.

M: Lighter mouthfeel, a decent amount of carbonation sensation. Minimal alcohol presence.

O: A good and enjoyable brew, but nothing that I'd actively seek out.

On tap at Barcade. Been wanting this forever!

Boring looking pour: brown body, minimal head and lace. Bready aroma with some hints of oatmeal. Nothing to write home about, though.

Taste is disappointing, especially given my expectations. Cinnamon and raisins come out more as it warns; tastes more like a cookie the longer I wait. Bready but not raisin-y enough. More breadyness and raisins would elicit a higher score from this reviewer.

Good, but not worth trading for.
