22 ounce bottle into pint glass; no bottle dating, but is a recent release. Pours slightly hazy deep orange/amber color with a 2 finger dense light pink head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of cinnamon, pear, apple, honey, cracker, toasted bread, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness, Nice and pleasant aromas with well balanced cinnamon, bready malt, earthy hops, and light-moderate fruity yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of cinnamon, pear, apple, honey, cracker, toasted bread, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Minimal earthy/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of cinnamon, honey, cracker, toasted bread, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice robustness and balance of cinnamon, bready malt, earthy hops, and light-moderate fruity yeast flavors; with a great malt/spice balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and fairly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 5.2%. Overall this was a damn nice spiced cream ale style. All around good robustness and balance of cinnamon, bready malt, earthy hops, and light-moderate fruity yeast flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

First review, I see how it is. $6.99 bomber poured into 20oz pint glass. I've enjoyed most of Hideout's beers, so I figured I'd buy another one of their experimental ones. Beer 28 - Batch 4.

Appearance: Pours copper colored with a small head on top that fizzles away quickly. Lacing left behind is minimal. I like the color of the beer, but as usual, I hope for more head (who doesn't?) and lacing.

Smell: Cinnamon red velvet creme sounds about right for this beer. I'll honestly say that I don't even know exactly what the hell red velvet is other than that I always figured it was just chocolate cake with food coloring added. This beer mostly seems to have a cinnamon frosting sort of aroma. I'm not sure if this beer is brewed with lactose, but it seems like it has been because something about it comes off as milky.

Taste/feel: Really quite a lot like the smell. I could say this about a lot of beers, but if this were thickened up a bit (ABV added and such) and barrel aged with some sort of peppery heat, this beer would absolutely blow me away. Of course, then it wouldn't really match the name of this beer... it's be more SINammon. Eh? Eh?? Anyway, really quite like how a cake flavor actually manages its way through along with the frosting sort of taste (there has to be lactose in this beer). The cinnamon isn't super strong, which is nice. Being at 5.2%, it doesn't have the biggest mouthfeel. This beer is medium bodied (though I do get and enjoy a slight creaminess to it) with a surprisingly assertive carbonation that I enjoy.

I enjoy Hideout... they seem to do the "unexpected" beers right, more like Odd Side or Short's and less like Right Brain. This is a tasty beer that's quite a bit like described, I would just prefer a luscious 10% or so boozy sipper that tasted like this. The name of this beer makes it sound like it'd be a dessert beer, but given its ABV and way it drinks, this is something that could be sipped anytime.... it is just too bad it's not in six packs.
