3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Excellent looking: dark red-brown with a durable ring on top.
The aroma is not as great as the name suggests but this is due in part to judicious use of spicing that eventually produces a more balanced flavor. The light cinnamon blends more harmoniously with the coffee.
O: worth seeking out.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Real pretty deep chocolate brown with brandy-like lacing. Nose was spices, coffee, and a little pumpernickel. Taste was restrained coffee, bready malts, toffee, caramel, and baker’s chocolate (saw this in prior review - spot on). Light mouthfeel - but taste lingers like a nice acidic coffee. Definitely more balanced than a cinnamon roll stout sounds.

Poured from bottle to Glass. Dark hue with fizzy brown head that dissipated to a ring. Aroma is cinnamon, caramel, sugar, bready. Mouthfeel is nice with a full body and crisp carbonation. Taste is sweet followed by a spice essence and ethanol finish. Overall this is a nice brew.

i did not like the taste of this beer cold. as it warmed up the cinnamon seemed to brighten up and the richness of the coffee was more evident. im glad i was able to try this one but i would not go out of my way to try it again.

Bomber, brown and white wax. Brown pour. Basically a milk stout with some cinnamon. Flavors are a lot weaker than I was expecting.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
22-oz. bomber. Coffee-heavy aroma with a very sweet frosting and lactose tone, flaky pastry, wet oatmeal, light nutmeg and a trace of cinnamon after it warms. Pours extremely dark brown. A medium spicy coffee flavor quickly gives way to iced cinnamon-bun sweetness before freshly baked oatmeal and very dry, bitter coffee tones emerge. Delicious flavor that works on every level. Medium body with an überdry finish. More please!

Horizontal with some other whales: Dark Lord ’12, Darkness ’13, Cinnamon Roll’d Wake ’n Bake ’13, Hunahpu ’14 -- Poured into a snifter sampler. It was criminal to not drink this beer for breakfast and/or with pancakes. Incredible cinnamon and coffee amalgamation, great stout. Second best among those listed.

I need to invent an instant wax remover, I’d be rich. This is easier to drink o draft just so you don’t have to deal with the wax. Almost totally black color, huge maroon brown head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of cinnamon dust and baking brownies. Taste is rich spiced brown bread, gingerbread. Delicious.
