Product details

Just like grandma used to do, stash some of this delicious treat out of view and hoard it for yourself. 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.

 Tasting Notes:

  • 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.

This turned out very clean with hardly any sediment. I did not use a secondary fermenter. I did not have rum and substituted Kahlua to soak the raisins and then used fireball whiskey with the cinnamon and vanilla. First time that I have ever used two packages of yeast in a brew, but Northern brewer quickly responded to my email concerning the amount of yeast to use. Overall it was one of the best results I have ever had. Great flavors and my neighbors really enjoyed it

Close but could be better

This turned out good but, for my taste, could be better. This is based on 1 week after bottling. It seemed fully carbonated and I don't expect the taste to change significantly. The rum and cinnamon need to be toned down for better balance. The beer ended up with a nose very close to the that from the rum bottle. The rum and cinnamon come through a bit too much in the taste. If I make this again I will cut the rum and cinnamon in half. I used 5-6 oz rum with the raisins in the boil and and 5-6 oz with the cinnamon and vanilla in the secondary fermenter. I used Captain Morgan Private Select.

There's no secret that this beer is great!

We didn't have equipment available for the secondary fermentation so this just fermented in the original container for 3 weeks, but it is still very tasty. I highly recommend.
