The genesis of the beer you're holding in your hand was pretty simple. We asked ourselves, "What if a beer tasted like an oatmeal raisin cookie?" The answer to our rhetorical question was to add raisins, lactose and cinnamon to Maduro, our English-style Brown Ale, a beer that showcases flavors of caramel, toffee and chocolate. The combination of the base beer and the additional ingredients resulted in a beer that tastes like it was baked in Grandma's oven.

Shared 355 ml can at Cardinal, Stavanger. Dark brown colour, beige head. Aroma and flavour of cookies (yes, really!), ginger and gingerbread, cinnamon, raisins and vanilla, fairly sweet.

Brown with an amber tinge, topped with forur fingers of beige head. It smells like cinnamon, raisin, brown malts.

Taste follows the nose. It taste like an oatmeal raisin cookie. Cinnamon and all.

Light br with light carbonation.

I got this in Waynesville North Carolina and I’m drinking it in Redding California July 24, 2020.

*Poured into a Teku glass from a 12oz can*

Poured a dark coca-cola brown with a khaki colored half-finger thick head. Had very little amount of rocky bubbles on the head and had very little head retention.

This REALLY does smell like an oatmeal raisin cookie. The brown sugar aroma coupled with nutty almonds and notes of raisins really make this smell like a satisfyingly sweet oatmeal raisin cookie. Despite this, I also found that there was a large presence of cinnamon--so much in fact that I felt a more appropriate name for this would have been Cinnamon Oatmeal Raisin Cookie. I also picked up on more of its subtle aromas such as medium roast coffee, the sweetness of the malts, and a bit of milk chocolate. But these aromas were easily overwhelmed with the oatmeal raisin cookie and cinnamon that they were really faint.

The taste follows the nose, not really presenting me with a lot of surprises. There was an oatmeal raisin cookie taste upfront: brown sugar, almonds, and raisins, which developed into cinnamon and subtle milk chocolate. This then ends with a slight coffee-like earthy bitterness from the hops.

This was pretty medium bodied with a light amount of carbonation. There was no lingering aftertaste and was smooth and silky.

Really solid and drink-able overall, the tastes and aromas were definitely interesting and flavorful but they weren't as bold as I would have liked it. This is definitely a really good brown ale, and I would undoubtedly drink this again.

Tried this beer seven months ago, when some friends brought a growler back for me, and it was a 5 over all - it was so good I kept searching it at a store found it and let my beer friends try- everyone thought it was great

Put some away for later- Covid 19 hit I brought it back out - still a good 4.5 beer - but some beers don't age good
