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.

Grandma's Secret Stash Stout Beer Recipe Kit
@jim, I am 2 weeks into this brew and find the color to be much lighter than the photo. I also did not use the raisins and cinnamon. I’m wondering if yours was lighter as well.
I wasn't sure about this kit. I had purchased an oatmeal stout kit before that came out beautifully but is no longer available. It was a little more work than most beers I brew. I did not use the soaked raisins or the cinnamon, but it came out great. It was definitely a little different with the vanilla beans, but it had a great smooth taste. I shared it at a dinner party and heard nothing bug rave reviews. I will absolutely buy it again. Thanks!
Very good tasting brew. Only recommendation I have is to use some maltodextrin to make it a thicker beer
This stout takes longer than most for the flavors to settle. I let it sit for 3 weeks to carbonate. It poured beautifuly with just a fingers worth of head. The pour reminded me of a nitro beer. I was pleasantly surprised. The taste was silky smooth with a slight toffee finish. I've been trying to let them age, but I just can't! I'll definitely be brewing this one again.
