Poured a black color with aromas of light coffee, huge cinnamon, some sweetness, and some toffee. Flavors were big cinnamon roll, cinnamon, sugar, and some light malt. Pretty great beer overall, glad I have a few bottles. zathrus13 (1776) - Mount Laurel, New Jersey, USA - APR 3, 2014
Bottle. Pours black, with a brown head. Aroma is coffee, cinnamon, roasted malt, oats, and chocolate. Flavor is cinnamon, coffee, roasted malt, and bitter chocolate. Medium body, but really too thin for the style, to me, anyway. Pretty nice, overall. snoworsummer (5614) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 28, 2014
Growler from Perfect Pour shared by BeerandBlues2. Pours almost black with a fizzy, bubbly light brown head. Tastes like sweet dough, dry cinnamon, bittersweet chocolate, booze. Low/medium body and carbonation. Smells like a very cinnamony cinnamon roll. Dry, boozy, and toasted sugar. sonnycheeba (5961) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 28, 2014

Bottle - thanks to EricTeusink! First lets start with the wax. I get what they are going for, but really?? Was that pain festival necessary? As for the beer itself, pours opaque black with a small dark brown head that dissipates quickly with decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is roasty, dark chocolate, coffee, cinnamon, vanilla. Flavor is quite sweet, medium bitter, strong cinnamon and vanilla notes, dark chocolate. Medium full body, creamy mouthfeel. OK, I can see why this could be taken as a bit gimmicky, and why the "I hate Dark Lord" crowd would rain shit on this as well, but I thoroughly enjoyed this beer, from first sip to last. wedgie9 (2702) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 16, 2014
Tasted on 2/7/14 from a capped 650mL bomber bottle at the Friday night tasting at RBWG Asheville, thanks to TheBeerSommelier for sharing. Pours oily dark brown with an average brown head that leaves average lace. The nose is dark chocolate and coffee with frosted cinnamon roll. The flavor is pretty much the same, with the sweet frosted cinnamon roll up front, and all of the cinnamon spice, coffee and dark chocolate bitterness on the back. The body is full with average carbonation and a long bitter coffee and spicy cinnamon, with a hint of vanilla finish. LilBeerDoctor (3903) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 15, 2014

On tap at Caliente's. Pours a dark brown to black with a medium brown head. Aroma of slight coffee and cinnamon. The cinnamon comes through more in the flavor. Really well incorporated flavors. Thick mouthfeel with a medium fine carbonation. 50belair (3617) - Florida, USA - MAR 10, 2014
Bottle. Dark brown pour with a tan head. Cinnamon and coffee aromas. Dark roasted malt, bitter chocolate, cinnamon, and muted expresso notes. Somewhat bitter with a hint of tanginess, perhaps from the coffee. Decent body and mouthfeel.
