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.

UPDATED: JAN 14, 2014 On tap at the Blue monkey. Pours black with small beige head, light lacing. Aromas and flavor of chocolate roast, cinnamon stick but def no cinnamon bun or Cinnabon notes. Smaller notes of licorice, espresso, and barrel. No icing either. This is not as good as a normal batch of Wake n Bake but still a nice variation. Medium body with a stickiness left behind. Got better as it warmed with milks cocoa and a minor cinnamon bun note, Well take it!

Bottle thanks to Rob. Pours a dark brown with small beige head. The aroma is strong cinnamon and chocolate. Medium mouthfeel with strong cinnamon flavor and light spice with sweet finish. Very good.

Aroma is fairly cinnamon forward but not quite at that Abraxas level. Medium coffee notes that cut through the cinnamon along with medium light chocolate notes that contribute to the other aromas more than distinguishing themselves as individual notes. Pretty nice aroma that hits the points they were going for. Pours black with a medium thick, dark mocha head that recedes fairly quickly to the edges where it lingers along with a faint haze in the center. Medium lacing and medium long legs. Flavor still has a lot of coffee like the regular W-n-B but with some secondary cinnamon notes. Medium chocolate character and some lighter oatmeal notes. Light alcohol spice in the finish that also exhibits medium coffee and bitter chocolate with a hint of cinnamon. Medium to medium high bitterness but no hop flavor. Mouthfeel is medium full to full bodied with medium carbonation. Low but present astringency and low to medium low alcohol warmth. Overall a much better beer than the white chocolate but it lacks the sweetness of a cinnamon roll. I think if they tried to nail the sweetness it would have been too big and cloying though so its a tough flavor to recreate. They would have been better off calling it a cinnamon spiced coffee beer or something like that (even cinnamon toast which is less sweet).

Appearance: Pitch black body with a very short dark brown head. Mean looking beer.
Aroma: Lots of earthy coffee with a hint of cinnamon in the background. Smells like Wake and Bake with a dash of cinnamon.
Taste: Prominent coffee, but tastes muted compared to how pungent I remember Wake and Bake to be. Cinnamon is on the finish and comes off a bit abrasive after 4 ounces. I wouldn’t want a pint.
Palate: Full-bodied, mildly carbonated.
Overall: Hats off to you Terrapin. You’ve managed to take a good beer and find a way to double your profits by charging for the addition of cinnamon, which I could have achieved in my room. I don’t get the hype for this, seriously guys throw some cinnamon in your Wake and Bake and call it a day.

Had Christmas Eve. Just had the regular version as a comparison directly before this. Pours dark and rather thick as one would expect. The coffee is still the dominate flavor, but the cinnamon still shines quite strong, especially as it warms. The cinnamon adds a nice and different touch. Super solid sipper. A bit sweeter and more decadent than the original. Perhaps just a touch under the original as I could drink a 4 pack of that in an evening, but I could barely do a bomber of this. Still very nice and likely the first two Terrapin special release brews.

Sample at First Sunday. The cinnamon is present, but not overly forward. It dries out the palate. This is still the same, delicious W-n-B, but with a slightly different flavor and mouthfeel.

Imaena (2089) - Maputo, MOZAMBIQUE - JAN 4, 2014
Bottle. The the nose is bitter coffee and candy sugar. The pour is a deep dark black with a thin head. The taste is deep roasted coffee, sweet cream and a int of cinnamon. This is better than the original I would say. The palette is medium. Overall a really great specialty brew that was worth the hype.

On tap at Bottle Rev (Raleigh) Pours dark with little head. Decent coffee stout aroma and taste, with the cinnamon adding a nice touch to both. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at kimball. Definitely the better of the two recent special releases from terrapin. The cinnamon comes through with a little more strength adding am extra spice to an already complex drink. The base beer is still smooth and roasty and creamy. All in all a nice drink with a lot going on but all working together well.
