COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cinnabilly has an appealing look and aroma. This clear, caramel colored gem emits a soft potpourri of cinnamon sticks, brown sugar, and hints of vanilla. Sweet malt flavors allow for an array of sensations, ranging from toasted almonds to cinnamon graham crackers. The pleasant addition of cinnamon creates wonderful accents throughout the beer that are never overwhelming.

12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled in 5/2014. Pours slightly hazy deep reddish copper color with a 1-2 finger dense khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big caramel, cinnamon, brown sugar, toast, toffee, biscuit, nuttiness, light vanilla, herbal, and toast/yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malt and cinnamon spice notes; with good strength. Taste of big caramel, cinnamon, toast, toffee, brown sugar, biscuit, nuttiness, light vanilla, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light amount of cinnamon spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, cinnamon, brown sugar, toast, toffee, biscuit, nuttiness, light vanilla, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Nice complexity and robustness of dark/bready malts and cinnamon spice flavors; with a good malt/spice balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. A bit strong on cinnamon in the flavors, but not too overdone. Light-medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a smooth and fairly slick/sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good spiced doppelbock. All around good complexity and balance of dark/bready malt and cinnamon spice flavors; and very smooth to sip on. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Bottle. Pours a dark amber with small off white head. Strong cinnamon aroma. Kind of makes me think of a wine cooler. Taste is of burnt cinnamon. Body is lacking. Seems a bit watery. Ok, but not great.

This pours a crimson red with about an inch of foam . The smell proves the name of this brew to be absolutely true. Cinnamon galore! Until the cinnamon moves into the taste, which ain’t long, I get a mild caramel malt flavour that verifies the style..it also shows up in the finish. A bit of earthy malt; then, it cinnamon time. Medium bodied, zesty level of carbo. I went into the session expecting to taste cinnamon and by golly, I sure got it. I’d call it a good festive brew for the winter holidays. Thanks, Trent!

BiiruBierBeer (177) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - AUG 19, 2014
Smells like spice candles and air fresheners. Cinnamon taste plus mineral water and light soap. Medium carbonation with a bit of foam and somewhat watery. Gross and very disappointing.

Cloudy brown. Tan head. Pretty nasty. Muddled cinnamon and a water dopplebock. Shorts falls short...again.

Bottle. The pour is a murky amber. The aroma is what I would expect, a dopplebock with cinnamon, kinda gross actually. The taste is certainly better than the smell and what I was expecting. Interesting for sure. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft on tap at Brickhouse (Madison, WI). Pours a deep rich ruby copper pour, blood red with good glow, a mellow haziness. Frothy whitish head atop is mellow, subtle ring with ok lacing. Aromas are a bit carmellized and bready with some citrus hops, subtle lemon and grapefruit meet some gentle spicy and hot cinnamon. A subtle spice, nice color. Aromas are a bit spicy and dulled, some gentle cinnamon, earth, mellow citrus. Touches of toast, some bready malts. Initial is a middling body, touches of cinnamon, gentle red hot, bread and faint toast. A bit of earth, some gentle spice. Mellow earthiness. Middle shows some cinnamon, red hots, touches of bready malts. Backend is dry, a bit spicy and cinnamon driven. Touches of gentle carmelization, toast and toffee. Touches of biscuit, some spice and sweetness. Ok.

bottle. Light brown with one finger head. Sweet and malty with a good amount of cinnamon. I generally dislike dopplebocks, but this is pretty solid. The cinnamon might get old though -- glad I only have one bottle to drink.

Taster on tap at Brickhouse BBQ in Madison (during GTMW). Mostly clear red orange color. Thin off-white head. Some ropes of lace. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Light slick texture. Caramel malt, and big cinnamon flavor. Reminds me of a cinnamon roll, cinnamon sticks. See the graham cracker. Moderate bitter taste, moderate sweet, and a big overall spiciness. It’s pretty cinnamon, yeah. It’s all cinnamon, really. A bit too spicy to be drinkable in the end. Alright. Fun stuff to try, but wouldn’t want more than my few sips
