Unfortunately the pour and look is this beers best quality. Deep, dark brown with off white head. Roasty malts,some char, marshmallows maybe way in the back. Roast, raisins, chocolate in the taste. This beer is horribly thin, was expecting a smoother, chewy body. Not impressed.

Slightly see through brown beer with a tan head that fades and leaves no lacing. The aroma is oatmeal raisin cookie all day with tons of raisin, cinnamon and vanilla with a little coffee/chocolate. The taste lightly sweet with a decent amount of raisins that are accented with vanilla and cinnamon. This is a great beer.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A: Really dark reddish brown, very large off white head, great lacing

S: Fruity, raisin smell right off, I get a bread oatmeal smell and some spices

T: Bready, spicey oatmeal cookie goodness taste, that fruity raisin comes in next and finishes with a sweet aftertaste.

M: Medium

O: Really exceptional beer especially if served at the right temp. I had the first one from a 4 pack of cans, picked up from a recent trip to Florida, and it was way too cold. Let this one warm a little and it will be much better than ice cold.
