Turning the sublime taste of Wake n' Bake into a Winter Warmer type of beer is easy- or at least that's how Terrapin makes it seem as its lavish chocolate and cocoa taste takes a let turn into Cinnabon territory.

But with little descrepency from the original, this Cinnamon Rolled version pour with a robust dark coffee color, at least after basically chewing through the bottom of the bottle because its nearly impossible to open the right way (obnoxious-ass wax!). Its subtle haze attributes to its translucent character as glimmers of tawny redish-brown low lights cast about its margins. A foamy, fluff and creamy sandy-stained head jets to the rim of the snifter and retains diligently while trailing with a spider webbing of lace.

Decadent aromas of pastry-laced cinnamon jumps out to the nose immediately! Wrapped in a sweeter scent that's usually reserved for candy stores, the malty side of the beer promises to be complexly sweet. But its backbone of medium-roast coffee, dark chocolate, heavy toast and roasted nuts provide the perfect support for the candied spice.

As the malt wraps around the tongue with a sense of burnt toffee, thin caramel and honey. After the cinnamon folds in on the middle palate, the overwhelming taste of Cinnabon takes me back to every airport I've ever traveled through. Equipped with the sweetness of powdered sugar glaze, the darker and toastier flavors of porter slide right underneath. Its dark-roast coffee, bittersweet chocolate, walnut and toasted flavors are robust but dry in taste- careful not to overwhelm the "cinnamon rolled" character that's celebrated to perfection.

Full bodied to start, the dark ale is creamy and expansive. But as the carbonation pulls from its residual sweetness, the ale trends drier and toastier. With a mild astringency from both spice and from roasted grains, the finish is a warm honeycomb of charred toast and campfire.

Just when you thought you've tasted it all, a surprise comes your way and shows all the flavors that you've ever tasted but does so with unique proportions and scale for a culmination that's both a shock and a tease to the taste buds.

Poured 8 oz. at Pizza Paradiso Dupont into a snifter.

A nice mocha brown one finger tall, and even pinhead bubbles cap displayed. A supper dark walnut black and red edged hued body towards the end for color. Always maintains a nice pencik sized collar while drinking.

Nice light coffee aroma and matching toasty cinnamon. Some faint mild white sugar some sense of tight fizz c02 carbonation gas. Cinnamon heat makes the coffee angle quite popping hot almost chicory and clove like.

Palate follows from the nose nicely. A nice warm coffee roast feeling. Lots of toasty cinnamon with some mild sugar toast quality. Very tight carbonation making coffee angle hot and pipping, but the mouthfeel a little weak.

Quite a fun enjoyable beer and a great cinnamon example if not the best use of one in a beer. It does lack though a classic creamy oaty body that I prefer to have, but still a well put together brew.

Gorgeous double waxed (copper with a white "icing" tip) 22oz bottle from Barrel and Barley (Woodstock, GA). 9.99. No bottle date but released in December. Served in a Terrapin snifter.

Pours jet black with a finger and a half of cappuccino head. Quickly fades to a thin halo leaving small veins of lace.

Inviting aromas of coffee, cinnamon, sticky buns and chocolate.

Bold, delicious cinnamon and coffee flavors up front. Bitter dark chocolate, burnt caramel, fudge, glaze, mild earthen char and soft oats with some alcohol fading in and out. Such a nice blend with it's signature rich coffee ever at the forefront.

Creamy, approaching heavy, body with soft carbonation. Mochaccino and cinnamon finsh.

A wonderful take on one of my personal favorites. Great interpretation. This is a worthy pursuit for fans of imperial coffee stouts.

What a great take on a classic beer. I'm hoping this is going to be a frequent Winter release from the guys down at Terrapin. In a world of cloying, over-done beers this is refreshing.

Smells like normal WnB with a touch of cinnamon. Tastes exactly like you'd expect coffee, chocolate, and the faintest bit on cinnamon on the back end, more as the beer warms up. Mouthfeel is spectacular, full and rich with faint little carbonation.

The reviews I've read claiming the CRWnB is "sweet" or "reminiscent of frosting" are fictitious as the beer is none of that. There is nothing cloying about it. Just a well done effort all around.

For me an easy 4.5/5.0 any day of the week.

16 ounce pint - $10.00 at Taco Mac in Crabapple, Georgia.

Appearance: Bears a turbid black opaqueness topped by a dense tan-colored sudsy head. This beer just exudes a kind of delicious stickiness.

Smell: Unlike some amiss beers where your guess is as good as mine, the additives here are neither a puzzle nor an enigma -- it's coffee and cinnamon, idiots.

Taste: Big handful of cinnamon set against the great roasted malt profile, gooey luscious oats, dense chocolate and Athens-sourced coffee of the local, seasonal favorite. Very minimal hop presence. Subtle dark fruitiness underneath. Reasonably light alcohol. Grants a long finish, with the cinnamon remaining fairly prominent here.

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation. Agreeably viscous, velvety, and creamy.

Overall: You could toss just about any damn thing in Wake-n-Bake and have it be good. Multi-wax the limited release of bombers and you'd really have a hit on your hands. Still, more than once, I found myself wishing I was simply working through a pint of the original.
