3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Kind of a disappointment, honestly, with the cinnamon being a bit too pronounced and the barrel elements outweighing the coffee that makes the original W-n-B a pretty good, if not great beer. Not bad, easy enough to drink, but just nothing super special.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft... RBWG 2013... This beer rocks!… Pours pitch black with a small, creamy, off-white head. The aroma is a decadent swirl of dark chocolate, fudge and cinnamon. I’m not picking up any bourbon barrel or vanilla here. Full-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and soft carbonation. The flavor is burnt, bitter and a little boozy – smooth though - no rough edges. Nice essences of cinnamon, dark chocolate and smoke. Acrid, singed, coffee finish with a pinch of cinnamon in the enjoyable aftertaste. World class base beer and a solid treatment!

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Kickbacks, RBWG welcome dinner. Pours muddy brown with a small, spotty tannish ehad. Nose is slightly trainwreckish--spices, booze, wood, cedar, light vanilla. Flavor is similar, light paint, sharpie, nutmeg, light cinnamon, and booze. Kinda what I expected actually considering other W-n-B treatments I have had in the past.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draft at Kickbacks. Pours a dark stout brown with a minimal tan head. Nose was a strange amalgamation of dark fruit, roasted malts, coffee, some light vanilla, and the big Wake N Bake coffee trying to come through. Flavor was similar- there was some fruit, but mild coffee, light vanilla, and some roast. Medium in body and interesting overall.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Kickbacks. This had zero carbonation. Tons of Vanilla, Coffee, Oats, very viscous. I was actually disappointed in this one - way too much sweetness and one of the balance that the regular W n’ B has.
