Product details

The intoxicating aromas and flavors of freshly baked oatmeal raisin cookies is surely a fond memory, and now that we are all grown up, why not craft a stout to reminisce? Pleasant, subtle aromas and flavors of raisin, cinnamon and vanilla engage with the velvety body of a traditional oatmeal stout to create an immensely pleasing and highly elaborate sipping experience.
Just like grandma used to do, stash some of this delicious treat out of view and hoard it for yourself. 

Aroma

Slightly roasty nose with no hop aroma. Scents of vanilla, cinnamon and raisins are prominent.

Appearance 

Nearly jet black in color with deep garnet and ruby highlights, good clarity. Firm and persistent khaki-tan head forms easily and laces down the glass well.

Flavor

Clean malt background flavors with a faint nutty and biscuity character are layered with a slightly chocolaty and roasty flavor. Moderate-low hop bitterness. Clean fermentation with subtle fruity esters. Flavors of cinnamon, raisin and vanilla persist in the finish.

Mouthfeel

Medium body with moderate carbonation. Low alcohol warmth with smooth creaminess and no astringency.

Overall Impression    

A complexly flavored stout with surprising flavors of freshly baked oatmeal raisin cookies.

Solid, but not perfect

First of all, I'm disappointed that not all ingredients were included in the kit (or at lest everything but the rum). I got all my equipment out just to put it away again after realizing I didn't have raisins on hand.

Second of all, there are a lot of specialty grains and I had a hard time steeping them all. My OG ended up lower than I wanted and the color isn't as dark as I would like.

Those points aside, I still ended up with a delicious, unique and fun beer. If I were to do it again, I'd divide the grains out into three bags instead of two, steep them longer and rinse them better. I'd also probably add some rum-soaked raisin in secondary to bring that flavor more forward.

Great beer, the cinnamon and vanilla notes are awesome. Easy drinking beer that doesnt have the heaviness of some stouts.

Like many other reviews the color ended up much lighter than is expected for a stout. The flavor profile is amazing though. I used Kraken Rum and kept vanilla beans in the keg while serving.

You need a bigger cookie jar

I’ve been waiting a long time for this to be in stock. It’s got good flavor and nice foam. I was surprised at how sweet it turned out. I’ll do this recipe again, but I might cut back on the raisins and vanilla a little bit.
