3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This cleverly waxed bottle pours an opaque black color with a medium foamy tan head that diminishes gradually. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Coffee, roast malt and slight cinnamon in the nose. Full-bodied with a roasty character and flavors of black coffee, dark malts and cinnamon. The finish is mildly bitter with a charred malt and coffee aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

Bottle. Better than the base. Pours darker too with far more head and better retention.
Aroma and taste hold cinnamon for sure but no icing. Dark and roasty. Flavors all pop; really darn tasty. I'm a fan.

Bottle shared with Edgar. Thanks!! Snifter. Pours a dark brown with a tan head. The aroma is breakfast goodness. Bacon (smoke), maple, cinnamon, sweet vanilla icing, coffee. The taste was similar with the coffee, cinnamon, and vanilla icing coming through mostly. A little bacon in the malts and a spiced finish. Full body, lasting cinnamon on the palate. Very good.

Pours a deep dark blackish color with light brown head. Big cinnamon aroma, then the WakeNBake comes through with its big coffee and roast character. Big coffee roasty flavor is dominant and light notes of the cinnamon. Would call this more of a cinnamon wake and bake but doesnít remind me at all of a cinnamon roll.

Pours inky black with very minimal brown head. Aroma of coffee with a subtle cinnamon essence. Big body, a bit chewy with a cool cinnamon sensation starting midpalate and lasting through finish. Slightly bitter aftertaste.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is coffee and icing. appearance is dark opaque brown with a one finger tan head that persists for a good 5 minutes. Taste is all coffee for me. I donít drink coffee so I think Iím unable to taste the more subtle flavors. Palate was medium body and creamy with soft carbonation. Finished bitter without any sugary stickiness. Overall pretty fun to share and that bottle is worth buying even if you never open it.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured into a pint glass. Aromas of coffee, spice, oak, alcohol. Jet-black with a very small, thin brown head. Cinnamon is the initial flavor, followed by espresso beans and a sweet flavor that can only be described as "icing". Itís a very cool take on their already-awesome Wake íní Bake Stout. Highly recommended, if you can find it!

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Comes out of the tap a warm coffee with a thick, fine-bubbled tan head that leaves generous lacing. Smoky aroma has notes of coffee, toffee and cinnamon - a lot of cinnamon. Flavor parades coffee, sweet cinnamon, toffee and subtle nutty notes across the tongue. A slight underpinning off hops rounds out a very tasty beer. Texture is smooth, firm, and fairly fizzy; finish is syrupy but has a bit of hops to balance. Beer for breakfast!

Sampled on draft at Mekong. Beautiful near black pour with good ring of brown head. Big cinnamon nose and flavor. Honestly, I think they overdid it a bit. Would have been more "cinnamon roll" if it was less cinnamon, and more Vanilla/caramel. Honestly, the idea was a little better than the execution imo.

Tap. Pitch black body with a quickly dissipating creamy tan head. Aroma of coffee, oatmeal, and cinnamon. Flavor is pretty doughy. Very much like an uncooked cinnamon roll. Thereís a slight coffee. The palate is rich and thick.
