Looks great. Super dark black pour with a brown head. Very welcoming earthy smell. Whoa what a mix of flavours. Thick breads stout at first. Then some cinnamon burn which is quickly put down by a vanilla finish. What an odd mix, that actually works really well together. Rather dig this and very glad I got a chance to try. It. Also happy I have two more in the fridge.
On tap at the Loose Moose. Pours a very dark brown with modest-sized beige head. Aroma is very roasty with lots of coffee, a little chocolate and a hint of smoke. Flavour is also quite roasty with coffee as the main note and more subtle dark chocolate and smoke notes. Creamy mouthfeel. Nice. mabel (9246) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 28, 2013

2013-02-10. Very dark brown black body, small tan head. Flavour is interesting, light dry roast blends with cinnamon in an interesting way, long lingering cinnamon in the finish. 7+ Pleasant aroma of cinnamon, dry roast, modestly malty. Average plus bodied palate. Solid, enjoyable. Bottle at Rhino Winter Festival, Toronto pootzboy (1715) - Kitchener, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 7, 2013
On tap - deep opaque black with a rich chocolate head. Aroma is pure ambrosia - roasyness (cocoa-coffee) over spicey funky ale notes. Mouth feel is tad thin for th style but the robust flavour makes up for it. Flavour is rich in roasy malts with cocoa-coffe notes, cinnamon spicyness, a nice hop bittering decsernment which compliments the roasty astrignence. Finish is fat and roasty. A great spiced stout.

Bottle [341ml] at Thirsty & Miserable. Pours black with a large long-lasting frothy light-brown head. Aroma of light spices, caramel malt, coffee and a hint of chocolate. Flavour of spice, caramel malt, coffee, lots of cinnamon and some chocolate. Slightly astringent finish. Medium bodied. Maybe a bit too much cinnamon in the flavour but it’s still pretty good.

Bottle from the beer club. Pours an opaque black with just a ring of tan head. Smell is a whole lot of chocolate and some cinnamon. Palate is on the thicker side of medium bodied with a bit of carbonation. Taste is slightly malty sweet at first then has a strong spicy cinnamon taste and has a moderately long spicy and sweet aftertaste. Very nice, I’m really enjoying it.

Aroma smoky with soy sauce, molasses , roasted barley, hint of chocolate. 6+
Appearance dark brown, light tanned top. Presentable. 4-.
Flavor and Palate : front rather watery, thin yet overall with good feel. Decent dark depth. Rather faint hop accents on sides. Interesting but felt washed out.
On tap at The Rhino festival. Black coloured body, with Stout and Cinnamon. This is a cinammabomb. Understated mouthfeel, certainly not a oatmeal, more of a black lager. The Cinnamon works, though. So-so drinkability. solidfunk (8838) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - FEB 10, 2013
The friends bring the party with this beer. Well-balanced mix. And yes, thats my word of the month. Aromas of vanilla, dark chocolate, roast malt. Taste bitter and sour. A little below average carbonation. Good package. I feel the oats as well. Tap at Rhino winterfest.
