Bottle 2015 vintage received in a trade with Joshua C. Black color without head. Aroma is huge cinnamon, mild chocolate, weak roast. Chalumeaux (1555) - Middleton, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 20, 2016
Flavor wants to be a Cinnamon roll and well... It really is. Over the top cinnamon with chocolate base and very mild roast. Mouthfeel is smooth but the body is lacking a bit. I wish it was a tad denser in the mouth. Good but maybe you shouldn’t trade a whole lot for this. Expectation for me may have been a little high.
Poured from bottle thanks Airforcehops black pour with a nice red hue. Aromas of spent coffee chocolate cinnamon and vanilla. Taste follows aroma with notes of espresso and a lasting cinnamon. AdamChandler (5051) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 20, 2016

A - Pours a black with some slight red hues but overall pours fairly flat.
S - Smells absolutely fantastic. Cinnamon is present and some great vanilla with a burst of coffee.
T - taste, well it’s loaded with cinnamon from start to a very long finish. it’s borderline spicy. There’s coffee, there’s chocolate and a chalky fudge sort of espresso bean raw-ness.
M - Dense mouthfeel, fleeting sweetness, good roast at the finish.
O - I like this a lot but if they had added about half of the cinnamon, I’d love it.
Draft at the Irish Pol. Opaque dark brown pour with light brown foam. Dark roasted malts with a slightly glossy edge. Carob. Coffee grounds. Black liquorice. Cigarettes. Hazelnuts. Waxy dark chocolate. Cinnamon is only faintly there and does not define the taste. ABV is well hidden. Like it - but greatly preferred the Coffee Oatmeal version to this one.

Coffee and vanilla nose. Black, thin tan head. Coffee, tobacco, dry but hints of sugar glaze. Medium body, easy carbonation. Not as in your face as the regular WnB, but the coffee notes are still proudly on display. PartyFowle (954) - - FEB 12, 2016
Bottle. Deep ebony hue with a frothy, fuzzy latte-colored cap. Chocolate crumbles, day-old coffee and mild vanilla in the nose. Some mid-bouquet toffee notes as well. Cinnamon is noticeable more as a spiciness that’s as a flavor, though a subtle cinnamon component is there. It emerges more as it warms. Big (but aged) coffee in the flavor as well, leading into pronounced roasted malt that’s tempered by a sweet cream-and-sugar finish. Beerman6686 (6607) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 25, 2016
Poured a dark brown with a tan head. Aroma was big cinnamon, green pepper and roast. Flavor similar, cinnamon forward for sure, no green pepper in the taste but rather dark coffee. A little thin and mute overall. ben4321 (6505) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 23, 2016
22 oz bottle from Hoboken Vine, 1/23/16. Snow storm means sitting around, might as well make it beer time! It pours a dark brown color with a brown head and lighter lacing. Aroma of chocolate and coffee. Cinnamon is light, but present, almost a Mexican style cinnamon, like they dipped a churo in it for a few minutes or something. Medium-full bodied. Finishes almost burnt on the mouth. Interesting, but I would have liked a bit more cinnamon roll flavor to come through considering the name.

Pours a dark mahogany brown with fluffy tan head. Aromas of dark malts, tobacco, chocolate, and a hint of cinnamon. Flavors of bitter chocolate, coffee, and some cinnamon if you strain for it.
