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 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.

Poured out dark black with a little filmy head on top. The smell of the beer is sweet with a nice amount of cinnamon on the nose. The taste has the same, nice sweet notes with a cinnamon finish. The feel is pretty good. Overall it's a nice warming stout.

Turning the sublime taste of Wake n' Bake into a Winter Warmer type of beer is easy- or at least that's how Terrapin makes it seem as its lavish chocolate and cocoa taste takes a let turn into Cinnabon territory.

But with little descrepency from the original, this Cinnamon Rolled version pour with a robust dark coffee color, at least after basically chewing through the bottom of the bottle because its nearly impossible to open the right way (obnoxious-ass wax!). Its subtle haze attributes to its translucent character as glimmers of tawny redish-brown low lights cast about its margins. A foamy, fluff and creamy sandy-stained head jets to the rim of the snifter and retains diligently while trailing with a spider webbing of lace.

Decadent aromas of pastry-laced cinnamon jumps out to the nose immediately! Wrapped in a sweeter scent that's usually reserved for candy stores, the malty side of the beer promises to be complexly sweet. But its backbone of medium-roast coffee, dark chocolate, heavy toast and roasted nuts provide the perfect support for the candied spice.

As the malt wraps around the tongue with a sense of burnt toffee, thin caramel and honey. After the cinnamon folds in on the middle palate, the overwhelming taste of Cinnabon takes me back to every airport I've ever traveled through. Equipped with the sweetness of powdered sugar glaze, the darker and toastier flavors of porter slide right underneath. Its dark-roast coffee, bittersweet chocolate, walnut and toasted flavors are robust but dry in taste- careful not to overwhelm the "cinnamon rolled" character that's celebrated to perfection.

Full bodied to start, the dark ale is creamy and expansive. But as the carbonation pulls from its residual sweetness, the ale trends drier and toastier. With a mild astringency from both spice and from roasted grains, the finish is a warm honeycomb of charred toast and campfire.

Just when you thought you've tasted it all, a surprise comes your way and shows all the flavors that you've ever tasted but does so with unique proportions and scale for a culmination that's both a shock and a tease to the taste buds.

Appearance: Pours a midnight brown with a modest mocha head; loads of spotty lacing, however

Smell: Chocolate, coffee and a subtle hint of cinnamon and sugary frosting

Taste: Mocha flavors abound, with the chocolate and coffee elements well-blended; after the swallow, the cinnamon elements add another dimension, but it is very subtle

Mouthfeel: Surprisingly thin, with moderate carbonation

Overall: Sweeter than the base version, but the cinnamon is well-integrated into the end result

22 ounce bottle into snifter, 2015 vintage bottling. Pours pitch black color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy dark tan head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of huge milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, cinnamon, nutmeg, toasted oats, dark bread, brown sugar, toffee, fudge, vanilla, light char, and roast/toasted earthiness. Fantastic aromas with awesome complexity and balance of dark/roast/bready malt and spice notes; with great strength. Taste of huge milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, cinnamon, nutmeg, toasted oats, dark bread, brown sugar, toffee, fudge, vanilla, light char, and roast/toasted earthiness. Light-moderate roast/char and spice bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, cinnamon, nutmeg, toasted oats, dark bread, brown sugar, toffee, fudge, vanilla, and roast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt and spice flavors; with a great roasted bitter/sweet and spice balance, with zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from roast/spice bitterness as well. Medium carbonation and medium-full body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/silky, and fairly sticky/chalky balanced mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warmth lingering after the finish. Overall this is an incredible coffee/spiced imperial stout! All around fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt and spice flavors; very smooth and easy to sip on for the big ABV. Really great balance between cinnamon roll and coffee stout flavors. A highly enjoyable offering.

Excellent looking: dark red-brown with a durable ring on top.
The aroma is not as great as the name suggests but this is due in part to judicious use of spicing that eventually produces a more balanced flavor. The light cinnamon blends more harmoniously with the coffee.
O: worth seeking out.

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.

Reviewed from notes. Twenty-two ounce bottle shared by someone (thanks) during the FW Bretta Rose release in Buellton.

A: Pours from a doubly waxed bottle black with a solid 1" thick mocha head which fades to a thin cap and leaves spotty lace.

N: Well integrated cinnamon, roasted coffee, vanilla, dark chocolate, dark fruits, nutty.

T: Follows nose with cinnamon and coffee dominant.

M: Full body and medium carbonation. Smooth, creamy, cinnamon and roasty coffee finish.

O: Enjoyed this version very much. Great breakfast beer.
