Can poured into pint glass. Dark brown with thin head (can says to gently pour). Cinnamon, vanilla and malts greet nose. Medium body with nice balance; spices and raisins are on front of palate with slight bitterness on back. Enjoyable and it gets better as it warms!

Pours very dark with a light caramel colored head on top. Has a little sweet smell almost to the likes of a cookie. Taste is a little watered down but has a brown sugar hint. Better as it warms up.

Fizzy brown raisin color.

Cinnamon, oats, caramel, raisin.

Cigar City did it again, this is oatmeal cookie, in beer form, straight up. Again, it's a little scary to ponder whether this is possible with natural ingredients, but if it is done in that respect, then more power to them. Although, as seems to be a theme when they do these novelty beers, it's a bit thin.
