big thanks to barrelandzachary for the bottle and a terrapin snifter...enjoyed out of a oversized terrapin snifter alongside a 2010 regular wake n bake.
a - brew is essentially identical to the original...maybe a bit of a lighter head, but same spotty lacing and great shine.
s - nose screams cinnamon, caramel, some vanilla, and of course coffee and chocolate that i get from the base beer. the 2010 is a bit oxidized so it carries soft cardboard notes which i don't detect at all in the cinnamon. the cinnamon roll really washes over the beer...the good news is that i love cinnamon rolls! really a homerun on the nose.
t - the 2010 has a really nice roast (the oxidation in the nose is gone in the flavor) with coffee, subtle dark fruit hints and big chocolate on the finish...all of this is present in the cinnamon roll'd but like the nose, it is washed over with big cinnamon sweetness. think of that bakery...you know the one...that makes the really amazing sh*t...and then imagine their home made cinnamon roll...that's this, but in a beer. and super fresh from the oven.
m - mouth is extremely smooth. this beer is such a treat.
o - overall, i'm pretty floored by this beer. how can you possibly improve on WnB? THIS is how. this beer should become year round in 4 packs...no, 6 packs. and it should 150% be distro'ed to Long Island, NY. if that happens it will be in my fridge at ALL times. i am a fan. would love to drink more of this.
