3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
February 21, 2014 - bottle via trade. Thought I entered this rating in, but noticed it missing this morning, weird. Nice cinnamon and coffee aroma. The taste had plenty of cinnamon, the coffee was there as well though didn’t seem to be a rich coffee, but also a hint of metal like some of the other Terrapin beers of the night. Wonder if something in the water they use. The finish was a bit dry and bitter for me. Had the regular side by side and preferred that over the cinnamon slightly, primarily due to the cleaner finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared at RBWG in the Downtown Dump. Pours a deep brown with a small tan head. Notes of chocolate, vanilla, caramel, cinammon, brown sugar, and a hint of coffee. Not as much as advertised. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a dry, sweet mouthfeel. Better than the white chocolate one.

Compared to the Wake n Bake and the White Chocolate versions this is the best. The stout is in check with good but not overpowering aromas of cinnamon. Good mouthfeel that leads into classic stout flavors that are boosted by the cinnamon. Quality product.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from newcigarz. Thanks Tony! Aroma is very much cinnamon and coffee. Flavor is more coffee-heavy, but the same rich oatmeal stout base is present and very much a player. Good carbonation, mouthfeel and mild bitterness. This brew was extremely well done, and I enjoyed it thoroughly. Would drink again in a second. Nice beer.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black pour. Small tan head. Quick to fall. Little splotches of head cling to the glass. Aroma, is at first, like peated malt. Rubbery. Slight cinnamon behind the malt, coffee, chocolate, and dark fruit. Smooth mouth gives way to a nice chocolate and cinnamon taste. Some coffee in the back. More chocolate and a nice nutty flavor with creaminess. Very nice in the end.

22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours black with a beige head. Aroma of cinnamon, roasted malts, coffee, some dark chocolate, light dough, and a little bit of dark fruits. Flavor the same with the cinnamon fitting in nicely to the base beer. Smooth texture. A pretty good imperial stout.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared during some post-bus drinking at the Downtown Inn for RBWG. Smells like green pepper... uh oh... thankfully the flavor is way better. Tastes like cinnabon. Coffee cake sweetness. The cinnamon really makes this interesting. Seems like a great brunch beer.
