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.

Fairly dark for a brown, almost marble black, with a large fizzy tan head that settles to a thin ring with Richter scale lace.

Smell is cinnamon, oats, caramel, raisin and cola.

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.
