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.

A shared bomber at a local brewery. Thanks!

Pours exceedingly dark brown, almost black with minimal tan head, which drops to thin ring.
Smell is rich, malt, oatmeal, cinnamon, a sweetness reminiscent of the sugary goodness on a cinnamon roll, vanilla. Great balance and a set of scents I've never inhaled in a beer.
Taste, once warmed, is malty, dark fruits, cinnamon, vanilla, a hazelnut-like note as well as that sugary sweetness of the topping. (Getting hungry) Phenomenal stuff.
Smooth, rich, slightly drying. Fairly full bodied, warming. I'd drink this any day, it's terrific.

22 oz Bomber into a tulip pint

A- Hands down the darkest stout I've poured yet. Plus a great head to go along with it, dark caramel and light brown near the top where it was thinner. Lacing retained nicely too

S- All hail the coffee stout! Coffee is there from beginning to end, but it is beautifully complimented by the cinnamon and roasty malt scents

T- As much coffee as was in the scent there was plenty more to be found drink after drink. I loved the original WnB but the Cinn Roll'd brings it to the next level. My order of prominent tastes from drink to finish is coffee, cinnamon, roasted malts, chocolate, then coffee on the end and that flavor stays on the tongue for a while. More please!

M- Carbonation is definitely the first thing I noticed. the best way i can describe it is "little bubbles" relative to "big bubbles" carbonation. Very light for a stout, leaves a nice thin oily coating on the tongue but nothing unwanted or overbearing. Again, more please!

O- One of my favorite brews to date. I was given this as an early Christmas present 2 weeks ago and have been on a roller coaster ride of hyping it up and wanting to save it to drink at the "perfect time" which apparently came tonight. I just hope I can get my hands on another, ALSO DO NOT DRINK THIS within 3-4 hours of bedtime. I wouldn't consider myself caffeine sensitive but I was wired after this one.

Poured into a snifter. Amazingly balanced aroma - not overly cinnamon. But the taste! So balanced! And this had a few months on it! Overall I would crush this again!

My neighbor was nice enough to pour me some of this one evening. It's one of the only beers I've had where I finished my glass and stared at the bottle trying to will more beer to appear in it. It was that good.

I'm forgoing the normal format for review because I thought everything about this beer was spot on.

Imagine having a cup of black coffee while eating vanilla and chocolate ice cream AND a cinnamon bun all at the same time. Yes. I believe that accurately crystallizes my thoughts on this fantastic beer. Enough said.

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.

On tap at World of Beers in Jacksonville. Half finger dark tan head with very good retention on a jet black body. Aroma is simple but very full on the nose with coffee, cinnamon, dark chocolate and brown sugar. Flavor follows with a very complex design with nice transitions between a starting chocolatey and roasted malt note moving to cinnamon coffee bean and nutmeg finishing with sweet cinnamon roll icing and nuts. Full body and light to moderate carbonation. Very complex and flavorful, a must try beer.

This is a phenomenal beer. Nose and taste are strong chocolate. A little bourbon and vanilla on the nose as well. I'm not getting much coffee but it could be due to the age (2015, so a little over six months). Feel is a little thin but overall a wonderful stout.

Poured from a 22 oz bomber into a pint glass: bottled on 5/24/2016, opened on 12/1/2016.

Appearance is charcoal black with one finger thick tan head with good retention.

Smell is heavy cinnamon, sweet malt, roasted coffee, cocoa nibs, and oats.

Taste follows the nose with roasted coffee, oats and sweet malt leading the way. After 6 months, the cinnamon and coffee are present but not overpowering. There is a hint of bourbon and chocolate as well (quite complex) Sweetness and bitterness are moderate.

Mouthfeel is thick and creamy but not too syrupy. Carbonation is moderate, and there is nice roasted bitterness on the finish.

Overall this is an excellent stout with cinnamon, coffee, chocolate, and oats. There is a lot of flavor, but it is surprisingly drinkable. Perfect beer for the winter.

A: Black, opaque, 1inch brown head, good lacing

S: Strong coffee smell, cinnamon almost like hot chili, sweet cinnamon roll

T: Strong coffee, much like regular wake n bake, heat from the cinnamon again like chilies, sweet malts

M: Full, a bit of cinnamon heat

O: A great stout no doubt but the cinnamon heat tends to take away a bit to me. I loved the regular wake n bake, no need to add anything to perfection.

As my scores would indicate, I loved this... Could not taste any better as the Cinnamon and coffee meld perfectly here... Mouthfeel is a touch thin but this is just ridiculous good... Not a long review but this is highly highly recommended... Awesome

Picked this up from a great trade with Evan! While the waxed bottle looks cool, it's a pain in the ass to open! Pitch black pour with a two finger caramel-colored head with good retention and great lacing. Fresh roasted coffee dominates the nose along with plenty of cinnamon and vanilla. Basically smells like a Cinnabon. The taste follows suit with the cinnamon taking command, along with hints of roasty coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla, espresso, and subtle oats. The mouthfeel is velvety smooth and really creamy with a warm, slightly dry finish. Overall, the balance and drinkability really surprised me. I was expecting a syrupy, gimmicky, sugar bomb, but instead got a complex, incredibly balanced, and delicious beer. Highly recommended!

What a coffee and cinnamon bomb. Nothing more than WnB with a healthy dose of cinnamon. That doesn't diminish the beer though. Flavored are very complimentary. Coffee smacks you in the face first. The first hints of cinnamon come in immediately afterwards. Coffee fades a bit as cinnamon becomes more pronounced. A solid chocolatey malt backbone is there throughout.

Overall: not complicated, yet great. I love this thick and viscous cinnamon/coffee bomb. One complaint: the base beer costs about $3.50 a 12 ounce. I wish they would back off on the price, considering the only real addition is cinnamon. I paid almost $14 for a bomber and think $10 would be fair.

Subtle cinnamon on the nose, but a nice wallop of it on the pallet...I even got a hint of the icing flavor they boast. This is a fantastic WnB variant that only comes in second to the French Toast.

Look - Black as night. Two finger mocha head. A damn good looking beer.
Smell - A total coffee bomb on the nose. Not getting a whole lot of cinnamon.
Taste - At first, coffee completely dominates the palate in true WnB form. But after this beer warms a bit.....that's when the magic happens and it really opens up. That's when the cinnamon roll flavors start to pop.

Overall - I had high expectations from this beer and it did not disappoint.

Pretty amazing version of an already solid coffee stout.

I was Hoping the french toast version of WnB would have won at first but after drinking several bottles and growlers of Cinnamon Roll'd, I digress. What an amazing brew.

Fantastic moutfeel, aroma, taste.

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.

Gorgeous double waxed (copper with a white "icing" tip) 22oz bottle from Barrel and Barley (Woodstock, GA). 9.99. No bottle date but released in December. Served in a Terrapin snifter.

Pours jet black with a finger and a half of cappuccino head. Quickly fades to a thin halo leaving small veins of lace.

Inviting aromas of coffee, cinnamon, sticky buns and chocolate.

Bold, delicious cinnamon and coffee flavors up front. Bitter dark chocolate, burnt caramel, fudge, glaze, mild earthen char and soft oats with some alcohol fading in and out. Such a nice blend with it's signature rich coffee ever at the forefront.

Creamy, approaching heavy, body with soft carbonation. Mochaccino and cinnamon finsh.

A wonderful take on one of my personal favorites. Great interpretation. This is a worthy pursuit for fans of imperial coffee stouts.

Poured into snifter. Appearance is only pitch black with a dark brown head. Appears like a nice hearty stout. Nose starts with a huge dash of cinnamon followed by coffee and chocolate. Cinnamon takes center stage and tones down the coffee a bit. Plenty of roast, dark chocolate, and a little bit of cream throughout. That taste is delicious. The cinnamon is smooth and melds well with the malty sweetness. It really does remind me a bit of eating a cinnamon roll beside a cup of coffee. The flavors are very smooth and well balanced. The cinnamon addition definitely does something special to this beer. Mouthfeel is thick and smooth with mild carbonation. Overall, this beer is quite delicious and worth seeking out. I could only imagine what a barrel would do to this beer.... Yum!

this is just amazing. thanks to drlovemd87 for sharing this gem, thats as beautiful as it looks in the bottle, with bronze and white wax and a classy and comical label. dark brown in color and not overly heady, but sitting with a bright shine and just a little icing of off white head. the nose is the best of a coffee oatmeal stout, with rich earthy coffee, not super dark, and roasted barley bitterness, as well as the semisweet body of the oats. the cinnamon is a genius addition to this, that adds a little kick to the nose and ties the flavor together in a unique way. it gives some texture to the beer, thats almost coarse or granular, a nice contrast and challenge levied against the smoothness of this oaty creamy stout that would glide down awfully easy without the cinnamon. it forces me to slow down, to appreciate this and digest it in a new way that i dont always remember to do when i drink great beers. sometimes im guilty of rushing through a great beer just to get to the next one, which is not a good habit to develop, but this beer slowed me right down and made me focus on the present in a careful way, which i think i owe to the cinnamon. the flavors marry beautifully, this drinks like breakfast. full body with some texture is a nice mouthfeel. carbonation is middle of the road, but i wasnt wishing for more. what i was wishing for was another bottle. in a night that featured some world class beers, this one was the winner. i have not had nearly enough beer from terrapin, so its hard to say where this falls in their line up, but its one of the best beers ive ever had, one of the most complex yet unified, and one that i will never forget.

Pours dark, seems both brown and black. Large, dense khaki colored head. Good retention on the head with lots of sticky lacing left behind.

Very intense aroma of coffee and cinnamon. Dark roasted malt, espresso, sweet molasses, and vanilla.

Rich dark roasted coffee flavor. Cinnamon is prominent but not as strong as the nose. Dark malt with that smooth oat character. Sweet caramel and molasses at the end, maybe some brown sugar. A touch nutty.

Rich, thick mouth feel with medium carbonation. Good bite from the cinnamon. Coffee leaves a strong bitterness on the tongue, maybe a notch too much. The oat creaminess balances out the bitterness.

Great beer. Great mix of strong coffee and cinnamon. Love what the oats bring to the mix.

Very excited to have this on draft at WOB.

A: single finger mocha colored head on a jet black body. Some slight hints of red in the body as well.

S: mainly coffee, but also roasted malts, caramel, & hints of cinnamon.

T: wow! Amazing, complex flavor. Coffee in the beginning, then the cinnamon takes over making it taste identical to a fresh cinnamon roll. It even finishes with a vanilla, icing taste. Beer, coffee, and cinnamon roll... It couldn't be much better.

M: thick with moderate carbonation but not as creamy as I expected.

O: Terrapin totally nailed this. Great beer!!! :)

Poured from a bomber into a pint glass (after much difficulty getting through the double wax dipped cap).

Pours pitch black with a large, fluffy, tan head. Nice falling bubble effect from the pour. Extremely long lasting head with very good cling. Smell is wonderful, cinnamon and spice, roast coffee, chocolate, vanilla, and slight caramel. Taste is roast coffee throughout with a slight alcoholic burn in the finish. Sweet and cinnamon flavored up front with a touch of vanilla. Mouthfeel is incredibly creamy, moderate low carbonation, and quite viscous. This beer is simply amazing, even better than standard WnB. If you see this in a store, buy it before it's gone forever, you will not regret it. Highly recommend this beer.
