Huge fan of the base maduro brown, this one works really well with the flavor additions. Not overly sweet, however don't think I could drink a full 4pack

Pours a dark brown bodied brew with a good head on top. Smells of spices, cinnamon, dark sugar. In my opinion, the flavor profile is pretty accurate to that of an oatmeal raisin cookie. No over the top flavors. The cinnamon is there, but balanced. The wholesome oat flavor is present. There is some sweetness but not cloying in the least. I wish the body was a touch heavier, but this is overall a great beer. Would absolutely have this again.

L: Poured from a can to a pint glass. Had a dark brown color and a cloudy texture. There was a small amount of foamy, off white head that quickly dissipated. Fair lacing.

S: A very nice aroma of raisins, cinnamon, malt, vanilla, and some other spices.

T: Tasted of a small amount of vanilla, a good shot of malt (not overly noticeable), some raisins, lots of cinnamon, a little bit of nutmeg, a bready quality, a hint of chocolate, and some caramel. This one really does taste like an oatmeal raisin cookie. It's sweet, tasty, and incredibly balanced.

F: An average amount of carbonation with a super smooth finish. Medium-bodied.

O: This is an extremely enjoyable beer. It's not a classic brown ale, but definitely well made and drinkable.

Pours a deep mahogany with a slight tan head. The nose is cinnamon, raisin, tobacco. The taste is led by cinnamon, some chocolate a hint of sweetness. Where is the cookie taste?
Mouth feel is a little on the thin but not in a bad way.
I'm a big fan of Maduro and this varient is very good. Very different but a really nice beer.

Certainly accomplished what the name sets out to do, but comes off a little gimmicky. Medium brown body with a thin off-white head and almost no lacing. Absolutely smells like an oatmeal raisin cookie, with strong notes of vanilla, cinnamon, brown sugar, bread dough, cereal grains, and a little nutmeg. Taste follows with some spicey notes but a lot of almost artificial sweetness on top of a muddled base brown beer. Feel is very thin with very little carbonation.

Pours dark mahogany red-brown with a dense creamy khaki colored foam head. Smells like immense oatmeal raisin cookies, balanced cinnamon, sweet vanilla, whole raisins, toasted bready malts, caramel, brown sugar, toffee, chocolate, cookie dough, sweet molasses, with mild earthy herbal grassy pine. Tastes like big raisins, vanilla, cinnamon, toasted bready malts, caramel, brown sugar, toffee, chocolate, cookies, sweet molasses, with earthy herbal grassy pine. Feels medium bodied, creamy with moderate smooth carbonation. Overall a real nice oatmeal raisin cookie brown ale.
