3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz. bottle. It pours a dark brown/black color with a medium light brown head. The aroma is very strong with cinnamon and black coffee. Heavy roasted malt and some lighter notes of caramel and biscuit, but this is really all about the cinnamon and coffee. The flavor is also intense with lots of cinnamon and roasted coffee. Surprisingly, it’s really not too sweet with strong roast in the finish and very creamy body. Not much acidity, thankfully and the cinnamon blends well with the coffee. Really enjoyable.

On tap, poured into an IPA glass. The aroma has a more pronounced coffee aroma than the standard W-n-B with a sweet cinnamon and pastry dough. There are secondary, subtle aromas of oats, and a mellow lactose sugar that pokes through every now and then (there’s your icing). The beer is dark brown-black with a dense, soapy brown head that has light retention and light lace. The taste is highly sweet with a medium light bitter backing note. The texture is chewy with a soft, fuzzy carbonation and a full body. The flavor profile is undoubtedly iced cinnamon rolls (cinnamon, sugar, pastry bread) with a finish that reveals a hint of oats, but is mostly cinnamon with a pine cleanliness. The aftertaste is coffee and cinnamon sugar.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours out pretty much black with a moderate tan head. Aroma is of coffee, roast, some freshly baked cinnamon rolls, light sugary sweetness and some mild lingering bitterness. Taste is solid, a good amount of coffee, chocolate, some sweet cinnamon, light sugary icing notes, some roast, mild bitterness. This was really solid, but personally I liked the French Toast version better.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
My favorite part of cinnamon rolls is the icing and I couldn’t find it in this beer. Flavor is dominated by coffee with some earthy ground cinnamon notes. Aroma also only really showcases the coffee. Was anticipating a heavier/fuller body than what was delivered. Decent beer, but had my hopes set higher.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black, with a ring of foam. Smells like...well, a cinnamon roll and a cup of coffee. A good deal of cinnamon in the flavor, with a solid note of vanilla, plus of course a lot of coffee. Maybe some coconut as it warms.
