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.
