2013 batch.

A: Pours pitch black with a tall and very dense dark brown head. Head fades out slowly with good retention. Moderate fluffy splotches of lacing.

S: Sharp and heavy roasted coffee beans. A little bit of chocolate sweetens it up so it's not acrid or bitter at all, really. I get maybe a little cinnamon sugar when swirled, but that might be the power of suggestion. Pretty much pure coffee if I'm honest, much like normal WnB.

T: Lots of roasted coffee bean up front again. Chocolate joins it in the middle again and then the funniest thing happens...cinnamon rolls appear. Once the coffee fades they really rise into the taste. It's pretty much perfect cinnamon roll flavor. You get the pastry, the cinnamon and even the icing. Especially notable in the finish and aftertaste. The aftertaste is akin to having taken a bite of a cinnamon roll and washing it down with coffee. Uncanny. Impressive.

M: Heavy and smooth.

O: I'm giving this one extra points for uniqueness and flawless execution. Cinnamon rolls in my beer, who would have thunk it? This is on top of an already spectacular base beer; WnB is pretty damn good by itself. This adds complexity and uniqueness without destroying the base beer. Execution could not be better in my mind. I'll save a "5" rating in case they ever barrel age this ;) Well done, Terrapin.

Bottle is impossible to open. Terrapin needs to read up on waxing bottles.

Taste is huge bitter coffee, cinnamon is very present,

Mouth feel is thin and flavor profile is good.

Flavors drop off very quickly.

Overall, just OK.

Certainly not worth trading for and not worth the hype at all. I can see why people that have it are trading it. Once you've had it you might as well trade it since it's nothing special.

Poured my bomber in small tasting sizes to really get this as it warmed and developed. Starting out when cold I felt the smell really, really lacked a little coffee smelled a lot like a regular wnb. As it warmed it improved greatly in all aspects... the cinnamon came through on the nose, on the taste got sweet, cinnamon, raisin, and coffee all rolled into one. Smooth, creamy with that coffee bitterness bite on the tongue really, really like this beer though not a surprise since I love the base beer and cinnamon rolls :)

Poured from a bomber into a pint glass (after much difficulty getting through the double wax dipped cap).

Pours pitch black with a large, fluffy, tan head. Nice falling bubble effect from the pour. Extremely long lasting head with very good cling. Smell is wonderful, cinnamon and spice, roast coffee, chocolate, vanilla, and slight caramel. Taste is roast coffee throughout with a slight alcoholic burn in the finish. Sweet and cinnamon flavored up front with a touch of vanilla. Mouthfeel is incredibly creamy, moderate low carbonation, and quite viscous. This beer is simply amazing, even better than standard WnB. If you see this in a store, buy it before it's gone forever, you will not regret it. Highly recommend this beer.

Mocha head, collar remains throughout. Legs appear with a swirl.

Big chocolate coffee notes in the aroma.

Just a tinge of cinnamon, perfect in my opinion... anymore and it's be overdoing it. More chocolate and coffee, mostly coffee of the two. Would guess 9%abv.

Thick an chewy mouthfeel, medium adequate carbonation.

Very good, not great though. Cinnamon was a nice addition but not a big difference from the regular WnB. Although I will say the cinnamon comes out more as it warms. Thanks for the share egrace84.
