A - Brown with purple accents and a small foam head on the sides

S - Smells like an oatmeal raisin cookie with a slight metallic tinge. There is lots of big raisin and prune

T - Cinnamon with a bready aspect as well as brown sugar and raisin. Light astringent brown ale in the finish. Definitely tastes like a cinnamon laden oatmeal cookie

M - Light body with low carbonation. Light spice and slight astringency in the finish

O - Solid beer that tastes just like an oatmeal cookie. It has a slight bite to it from the brown ale

Thanks to Jeff? from bringing this to a recent tasting. From notes.

A- Pours a translucent reddish brown with a thin head that dissipates fast. No lacing left behind.

S- ...And this smells like an oatmeal raisin cookie. Cookie batter, raisins, brown sugar, vanilla, raw oats and roasted malt.

T- ...And this tastes just like an oatmeal raisin cookie. Lots of freshly baked oatmeal raisin cookies with notes of vanilla, brown sugar, and roasted malt.

M- Medium carbonation and body.

O- I wasn't sure how much I was going to like this beer. I'm a fan of oatmeal raisin cookies, but was skeptical that this was going to remotely taste like one. Fortunately, Cigar City knocked it out of the park. Very reminiscent of an oatmeal raisin cookie without being overly sweet or artificial tasting. A fun beer to try and one I would certainly be happy to have again.
