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.

Bottle. Pungent aroma of cinnamon and malts. Fine body. Tastes good at beginning--slightly sweet malts, a bit roasty. Transitions into a cinnamon/cassis flavor so strong that it hearkens back to the "Cinnamon Challenge." Interesting, but only worth a few sips before becoming too cloying.

GIGO. Aroma was of mainly all cinnamon, light caramel and dark fruit. Flavor was thin cinnamon water with hints of toast and malt. A mess really.

Bottle at home. Pours a beautiful reddish brown with one finger of off white head. Aroma is slight caramel and lots of cinnamon. Flavor is moderately bitter and then lots and lots of cinnamon. I don't like this at all. Undrinkable. My wife liked it, though. Unless you really like cinnamon I don't recommend this at all. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Brown pour. Aroma is different to say the least, kind of a soupy, saucy aroma. Soy sauce, cinnamon is there in the aroma but really comes forward when drinking this. Brown sugar, some bock qualities there but the cinnamon takes over everything. Medium body. Unique, but not sure how much of a good thing that is. Glad to have tried it though!

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.

wmubronco1992 (640) - Coldwater, Michigan, USA - SEP 5, 2014
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!

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.
