I need to honest here, this is possible one of the worst beers I've ever had. Zero head, zero body, a nose of pure cinnamon, and the taste of baby Ruth heated and rolled in cinnamon. It's extremely hard to drink cold, but does improve with temperature. At room temp th alcohol kicks down the cinnamon walls and makes a home for itself.

Honestly...I wanted to dump it out.

Described as a porter infused with chocolate, cinnamon, and chipotle peppers.

Served on tap in a snifter at the Brew Kettle

A- Dark brown color with ruby highlights, no head by the time it got to the table

S- Strong aroma of cinnamon frosting, vaniila, raisin, and chocolate

T- Tastes like a Raisin Cinnabon, sweet vanilla cinnamon frosting, drizzled with chocolate, with a spicy pepper kick on the finish

M- Kind of a thick mouthfeel, definitely a sipper.

O- This is one of the strangest beers I've ever had. This tastes like a dessert. Not sure if Cinnabon makes a Raisin Cinnabon but if they do this is what it would taste like. A very enjoyable and interesting beer I would recommend anyone to try.
