An enjoyable enough offering, but a slightly disappointing given the hype... It looks like and smells like traditional WnB... There may be some very subtle cinnamon spice additions on the nose... The "cinnamon roll" addition adds a nuanced and enjoyable presence to the flavor profile, but it's nothing more than a minor tweak... There is also a very subtle and sweet pastry dough presence... I often complain when one-off offerings dramatically change the base beer, but in this case, this one doesn't go quite far enough... The mouth feel is improved over the traditional... It is no more than medium bodied and surprisingly smooth... There is nothing especially sweet or deserty about this offering... The 9.4% ABV is especially well hidden... The end result is an enjoyable brew, but not one worth tracking down unless you happen to be lucky enough to stumble upon it in your normal beer travels... (902 characters)

4.21/5  rDev -2.8%
look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: pours black with a finger of tan head that fades into a frothy ring with little lacing.

S: cinnamon and dark, robust coffee dominate. There are some notes of roasted malts and char underneath, but coffee is king here.

T: Robust French roast coffee and cinnamon dominate here as well. There are notes of bitter chocolate and char underneath with a hint of vanilla. The finish is lightly bitter.

M: thick body with moderate carbonation, this beer is a bit more carbonated than most stouts, but it would benefit from being a little creamier.

O: a really enjoyable beer overall. Not terribly complex, but what's there is so good that it works. It's like a glass of cold-brewed, cinnamon-infused coffee. (705 characters)

Yep, giving this beer a 5.0. The regular Wake n' Bake is my favorite Terrapin release and after having this I don't know if I can even go back. The alcohol % is exactly the same as the Wake n' Bake as the recipe is lightly tweaked, not changed.

Aroma: Amazing roasted coffee aroma with a hint of sweet cinnamon.

Appearance: Pours jet black like motor oil, with an appropriately thin non-persistent brown head.

Flavor: Oh man, the flavor on this thing. Very complex, lots of roasted malts, strong coffee flavor, backed with the sweet delicious silky taste from the oatmeal, packed with a sweet cinnamon roll like flavor. Yes, the cinnamon actually makes it taste like a cinnamon roll. This thing is a breakfast all in one, you get the cinnamon roll with a side of coffee and oatmeal. WHAT IS BETTER THAN THAT? Seriously.

Mouthfeel: Medium-Full body with good carbonation, and a silky smooth mouthfeel from the flaked oats.

Overall: Definitely worth the hype and hunting for this beer. I came out with numerous bottles and i'm going to be left wanting more. (1,062 characters)

3.91/5  rDev -9.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Jet black. Darker even than the original. Less head, though. I noticed with both the White Chocolate and the Cinnamon Roll'd that the carbonation levels seemed pretty low even for a stout. Maybe the 22 oz bombers produce less carbonation, maybe the additional ingredients lessen the head and lacing, who knows.

Smell: The smell is pretty spot on with W-n-B, but there is a hint a cinnamon on it. After pouring the bottle empty, I noticed that the bottle carried a heavy cinnamon smell by itself. Once in the glass, it was W-n-B to a tee.

Taste: The cinnamon addition is all over the taste on this. Start, finish, aftertaste. Of course, a lot of coffee comes through as well, but there is no denying the cinnamon spice in this beer. There is also a bit more of a bite on this than the original. At 9.4 ABV, Cinnamon Roll'd has much more kick and it shows. Undecided as whether this is a good or bad thing, but it's definitely different.

Mouthfeel: The mouth on this is as expected. Thick and heavy, but in a breakfast stout manner. For the style this mouthfeel might be on the light side, definitely thinner than Moo Hoo, and not at all as smooth as the original W-n-B.

Overall: I don't know how I feel about this one. One of the things I love about W-n-B is the incredible coffee presence. It really does taste like a morning drink, and if you're not careful, it drinks like one too. Cinnamon Roll'd is a little sharper with the added alcohol and the addition of cinnamon takes away a bit from the coffee notes. I think I have to call it o-2 for Terrapin on topping their original recipes with these reserve series beers. Both have been creative and interesting, but the hype seems to overwhelmed the product. (1,725 characters)

4.19/5  rDev -3.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

appearance: Dark brown with ruby highlights. Nice mocha head and messy lacing.
smell: Fairly subtle coffee and mild roasty stout. Hint of cinnamon.
taste: Wow, there's the cinnamon roll. Damned if they didn't nail it. Like a breakfast of cinnamon roll and coffee plus beer. That is to say, the best breakfast there be. This is truth in advertising.
overall: They nailed this. Very unique, interesting beer. (407 characters)
