Will cinnamon affect the smell or taste in beer?
Tomorrow I want to brew and try something new. Please help me.

This should probably be in the homebrew forums if you want a better chance at a reply.

The usual way of doing this is to add ground cinnamon a few minutes prior to flame out. 0.03 gr/l goes a long way for starters but it all depends on the rest of the recipe of course.

The cinnamon can be present in both aroma and flavour but again this will vary depending on other things in the beer etc.

Add some cinnamon to a little bit of whiskey. Then you can add small amounts to a measured sample to get the ratio you want. Aplly to full batch once you dial it in. You can add to the final product with that method. You could use a grain neutral spirit like vodka too, but cinnamon goes well with whiskey.
