Bottle version. Caramel malt, cake, sugar, plenty of cinnamon, sweet finish. Not bad as long as you like cinnamon, a fun xmas style brew.

2014 rating. On tap at Watering Hole served in a half pint shaker. Copper color with a slightly modest off-white head. Big cinnamon nose with hints of toffee and caramel along with some clove. Tastes more of the same with hints of brown sugar as well. Fairly well-balanced on the palate but leans a little toward the sweet side. Cinnamon leaves a little burn on the finish mixed with the smooth caramel malts.

Tap at Dig. Finally got around to trying this. Nice cinnamon cnady nose. PRetty, glowing orange-amber color. flavor is cinnamon, sweet but not overly so, some heat like a candy hot ball, rich malts. Full, almost heavy body with a nice spritz and tang. Well balanced.

Tap at Gar Eden as Cinnamon Ale. Amber colour. Caramel and cinnamon smell, light roastiness. Taste is good, toffee and cinnamon, less full on than expected. Quite subtle. Definite latte type flavour or maybe royal milk tea. Pretty good. Surprised how much I liked it.

On tap at the North Island Brewpub in Sapporo. It poured a nice amber with an inch of white foam. Some cinnamon aroma and lots of cinnamon flavor. It tasted like powdered cinnamon sugar, quite sweet but nice. 430ml was a bit much to drink at once though as the sweetness got cloying. It isnt a session ale I think.

Smells like a starbucks latte loaded with cinnamon. Great looking beer - dark ruby colour with puffy head. Cinnamon is all over this, especially in the finish. Easy drinking brown with a decent body. Yes, this is all about the cinamon.
