a - poured a three-fingers thick dense coffee-colored head into a snifter that left good lacing and sheeting throughout. the body was pitch black.
s - cinnamon and other spices dominate but some chocolate and coffee do come through.
t - tastes like wake n bake with vanilla and cinnamon added.
m - slick and creamy.
o - i think it took me longer to open the bottle than to drink this delicious brew. well done take on WnB.

Thanks to rudzud for sharing this beast, wanted to get my hands on one, but he had a better trade angle and got one first.

Pours a big creamy dark mocha colored thick rich almost 1 finger head that sticks around for a while, with nice lacing and big legs that slowly crawl down the sides.

Nose is ridiculous, very strong, tons of fresh coffee grinds, espresso coffee roast like an intense espresso shot, with some nice cinnamon as well, then sweet doughy cinnamon roll pastry with nice sweet sugar icing, touch of vanilla.

Taste is just straight up cinnamon roll, lots of nice cinnamon and pasty dough fluffy roll, and then a nice candy sugary icing. then it gets into fresh espresso and coffee grinds, light caramel, roast, and dark malts. Mild cocoa and vanilla, creamy feel but not oats, doughy malt taste too. Mild earthy bitter hop with fair bitterness. Finish is sticky but not too sweet, long lingering espresso, cinnamon, cinnamon roll with icing, and little earthy hop bitterness.

Mouth is chewy and fairly heavy bodied, semi creamy, nice fluffy carb, hint of warming booze.

Overall very good, huge cinnamon roll note with tons of espresso, very nice. Totally worth the hype IMO.

Pours quite black with two fingers mocha head. Great retention.

Aroma is black coffee and of course cinnamon.

Tastes of coffee, cinnamon and a sweetness that's vaguely frosting cinnamon roll sweetness. The sweetness well balanced by the big coffee bitterness.

Rather full mouthfeel. Medium carbonation.

Really a nice beer. High marks for achieving the flavor profile.

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.

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.
