Inky black pour with a thin light tan cap. Huge cinnamon and coffee and dark roasty aromas with a gentle pepperiness. Smooth toasty roasty black malt sweetness on the flavor with loss of coffee, loads of cinnamon, loads of gentle smokey pepper, some sweet bready cinnamon roll and gentle booze heat. Really tasty.

Overall aged for a year this one has really come together nice. The coffee is still there but compared to a fresh wake n bake it has mellowed. Very drinkable and enjoyable. I would suggest this beer to a friend. egajdzis (6881) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 31, 2016
