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.

On tap at Cigar City on April 19. They served it to me in a Cigar City American pint glass.
CCB isn't the most lighted bar out there, but I could tell that this beer poured a dark reddish brown with some burgundy highlights at the bottom. On top was a 1/4 of an inch dirty white head of foam. It was one of those colors where it wasn't white and it wasn't tan either. Great retention that left behind a long lasting large foamy circle of rings and a spot or two of lace.
It honestly smells like an oatmeal raisin cookie. No joke! Not a fresh baked cookie. More like a 12 hour old cookie smell. Up front was the strong scent of vanilla, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Behind the spices was the was the oats and the raisins. It was a very spicy aroma. If you close your eyes, you might think its a cookie in a glass.
Did it taste like an oatmeal raisin cookie? Yes! It was a very spicy cookie, but it actually tasted a little like an oatmeal raisin cookie. Not a fresh cookie. Like the aroma, it tasted like a 12+ hour cookie. Also like the aroma, it was the spices that kicked it off. It started off with the taste of vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Directly behind that was a drop of molasses, oats, and sweet raisins. A great sweet tasting beer.
This was a light to medium bodied beer with a good level of carbonation and a vanilla cookie aftertaste. The vanilla, cinnamon, and sweet raisins will linger and nothing else.
It sounds like a cheap novelty beer to increase sales, but it doesn't taste like one. This is a great sweet tasting beer. It smells like an oatmeal raisin cookie, tastes like an oatmeal raisin cookie, but its not an oatmeal raisin cookie. It's hard to put down and very easy to buy another pint.

The beer pours a clear mahogany brown with almost no head. The nose is a subtle oatmeal cookie sweetness with a touch of cinnamon/nutmeg spice, vanilla extract/marshmallow, and raisins. The taste is a relatively sweet, but not cloying, followed by an exact oatmeal raisin cookie taste. The mouthfeel is a mild-medium bodied, flat, with a lingering brown sugar sweetness. This definitely lives up to its name, but needs a bit more carbonation and body.

Growler thanks to ColdSnack, poured in to Huna snifter. Thanks mang!
A - ORC pours an opaque brown with plenty of carbony fizz and a nice light head that dissipates after settling
S - sugar cookie, oatmeal, cinnamon, a hint of vanilla, maybe a pinch of brown sugar too
T - this tastes like oatmeal cookie batter; there are cinnamon, raisin, and sugar/spice notes too, with just that subtle hint of vanilla
M - for having so many flavors present, this beer is really easy drinking; there's no cloying sweetness, mild carbonation, and a smooth drink ability to it that belies all the sweet-based flavors
O - ORC is a really good brown ale with all the right flavors of an oatmeal raisin cookie. Exceptionally drinkable and tasty as can be.
