3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Looks great. Super dark black pour with a brown head. Very welcoming earthy smell. Whoa what a mix of flavours. Thick breads stout at first. Then some cinnamon burn which is quickly put down by a vanilla finish. What an odd mix, that actually works really well together. Rather dig this and very glad I got a chance to try. It. Also happy I have two more in the fridge.

2013-02-10. Very dark brown black body, small tan head. Flavour is interesting, light dry roast blends with cinnamon in an interesting way, long lingering cinnamon in the finish. 7+ Pleasant aroma of cinnamon, dry roast, modestly malty. Average plus bodied palate. Solid, enjoyable. Bottle at Rhino Winter Festival, Toronto

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap - deep opaque black with a rich chocolate head. Aroma is pure ambrosia - roasyness (cocoa-coffee) over spicey funky ale notes. Mouth feel is tad thin for th style but the robust flavour makes up for it. Flavour is rich in roasy malts with cocoa-coffe notes, cinnamon spicyness, a nice hop bittering decsernment which compliments the roasty astrignence. Finish is fat and roasty. A great spiced stout.

Bottle [341ml] at Thirsty & Miserable. Pours black with a large long-lasting frothy light-brown head. Aroma of light spices, caramel malt, coffee and a hint of chocolate. Flavour of spice, caramel malt, coffee, lots of cinnamon and some chocolate. Slightly astringent finish. Medium bodied. Maybe a bit too much cinnamon in the flavour but itís still pretty good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from the beer club. Pours an opaque black with just a ring of tan head. Smell is a whole lot of chocolate and some cinnamon. Palate is on the thicker side of medium bodied with a bit of carbonation. Taste is slightly malty sweet at first then has a strong spicy cinnamon taste and has a moderately long spicy and sweet aftertaste. Very nice, Iím really enjoying it.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at The Rhino festival. Black coloured body, with Stout and Cinnamon. This is a cinammabomb. Understated mouthfeel, certainly not a oatmeal, more of a black lager. The Cinnamon works, though. So-so drinkability.

The friends bring the party with this beer. Well-balanced mix. And yes, thats my word of the month. Aromas of vanilla, dark chocolate, roast malt. Taste bitter and sour. A little below average carbonation. Good package. I feel the oats as well. Tap at Rhino winterfest.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Bar Hop Bar. Deep black pour with an espresso coloured lacing. The nose is quite spicy - cinnamon and coffee with a little bit of light chocolate. There is a bit of nutmeg spice as well. Sort of astringent though - enough roast to balance the sweetness but the spiciness takes it up into astringent a bit. Medium palate but fairly assertive bitterness. It's a bit of a miss for me.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap. Dark and fizzy, looks like a glass of coke. I make hot chocolate with cayenne and cinnamon that smells almost exactly the same as this beer, which isnít a bad thing. This was a fine stout to begin with. The spices really pop, possibly too much. I like it but Iím only having one. Try it if you see it.
