COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like your favorite breakfast treat and a great cup of coffee, Cinnamon Roll’d Wake-n-Bake hits on all cylinders. Starting with a delicious coffee aroma, a touch of Cinnamon gives way to a sugary sweet icing flavor as a buttery nuttiness fills out the last drop of this breakfast in a glass.

On tap at the cloverleaf. The aroma is similar to the base beer with the cinnamon coming in on top. Once the beer warms up near room temperature the cinnamon comes in really strong and there is a nice sweetness in top of the regular coffee and roasty flavors. Very solid. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft. Black pour with tan head, even came with a cinnamon roll. Sweet cinnamon, sugar, nutty aromas. Flavor is roasted and chocolate, sugar and cinnamon, overall a sweet beer good with breakfast or dessert.

nimbleprop (4198) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 29, 2014
8oz pour at PPD. Pours an oily black with some thin tan head. Nose is earthy, some tobacco, some spice, lots of sweetness, molssses, malt, some coffee. Flavor has a lot of everything, malt, molasses, coffee, cinnamon, raisin, a hint of windex. Full, sticky finish.

radagast83 (4126) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - JAN 26, 2014
Draft at Pizzeria Paradiso. Poured a dark, rich black color with a tan head. Aroma was light coffee, roasted malts, with a generous helping of sprinkled cinnamon on top. Flavor was rich and roasted, with a mouthful of coffee, chocolate. Those dominate, but the cinnamon is most certainly present in this. Sweet, icing notes. I tried to eat this at the tail end of my meal and that was a no-go. Strictly desert.

ChainGangGuy (4280) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JAN 26, 2014
16 ounce pint - $10.00 at Taco Mac in Crabapple, Georgia.

Appearance: Bears a turbid black opaqueness topped by a dense tan-colored sudsy head. This beer just exudes a kind of delicious stickiness.

Smell: Unlike some amiss beers where your guess is as good as mine, the additives here are neither a puzzle nor an enigma -- it’s coffee and cinnamon, idiots.

Taste: Big handful of cinnamon set against the great roasted malt profile, gooey luscious oats, dense chocolate and Athens-sourced coffee of the local, seasonal favorite. Very minimal hop presence. Subtle dark fruitiness underneath. Reasonably light alcohol. Grants a long finish, with the cinnamon remaining fairly prominent here.

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation. Agreeably viscous, velvety, and creamy.

Overall: You could toss just about any damn thing in Wake-n-Bake and have it be good. Multi-wax the limited release of bombers and you’d really have a hit on your hands. Still, more than once, I found myself wishing I was simply working through a pint of the original.

rbrazell (1445) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 21, 2014
Draft at Fermentation. Black pour with a thick tan head. Aroma of cinnamon, vanilla, sugary icing, coffee and chocolate. Flavor is similar with a thick chewy malt profile and nuttiness with a spicy cinnamon ending. Rich body and mild carbonation. Great beer on a chilly night.

jackl (3859) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 21, 2014
Draft @ WF Charlottesville. Deep brown pour with a tight oily tan head. The nose is mellow roasted espresso. Earthy cinnamon. Hints of sweet milk chocolate and vanilla. Nice dry body. Charred grain and slightly peppery cinnamon. Oily toffee dessert. Full, rich and oily. Soft carbonation. Overall, better than I was expecting. Nice.

UPDATED: JAN 28, 2014 (On Tap at city tap House in DC) dark brown, no head. Aroma of coffee, brown sugar, some cinnamon and even oatmeal. Cinnamon evident in the flavor especially in the finish; nice coffee flavor, vanilla. Full body, sticky feel, soft.

Jesterdeal (1640) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Bottle shared by Jeff (once we got it open). Aroma is dark roast coffee. The Jittery Joes is still present. A hint of cinnamon, chocolate, and malt. Pours deep brown and kind of thin with slight white lacing. Taste is dark coffee, cinnamon, and a nice malt. Mouthfeel is surprisingly thin and unsatisfying. It tastes like they added cinnamon and water. Ultimately tasty but feels cheap.

Drake (7940) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Draft at Whole Foods Charlottesville. Pours a dark brown color with a thin frothy brown head. Good head retention. Aroma of cinnamon, vanilla, chocolate, sweet roasted malts, mild hops and dark fruit. The taste is cocoa, cinnamon, coffee, roast, dark fruits, vanilla. Medium bodied, low carbonation. Damn good beer.
