Bottle shared by stlwill at the RBSG grand tasting at Surly. I certainly wasn't going to try trading for this one so I'm grateful for the free pour.

Pours a murky black/brown color, some head but it dissipates quickly.

Aroma is really heavy on the cinnamon. Actually everything about this beer is about the cinnamon. Plenty of booze present too, along with some wood and chocolate. Not a bad start but I'm scared of how sweet this is going to be.

Flavor is as feared: too heavy on the cinnamon and sugar. The upside is that there is some whiskey, toasted wood, and chocolate behind that. Unfortunately there are also roast, burnt, and all around astringent flavors. Not overly bitter.

Body is heavy, unsurprisingly but it's a good thickness. Could use some more carbonation.
