I had this a while after trying Double Barrel Hunahpu's and I have to say that I liked this more. With so much going on, maybe the DBH didn't need the barrel. This was a fantastic cinnamon roll with raisins in liquid form. Bursting with decadent dessert flavor. Truly great beer.

Very underwhelmed. Put hype aside and did blind test with other spiced stouts and this came in a unanimous dead last. Like brushing your teeth with a cinnamon stick - and not in a good way. Also got a grassy/weedy flavor that was not my favorite. A bit let down.

Pure cinnamon bomb. If you like cinnamon go for it, but if you want anything other than a smooth stout with an arse load of cinnamon steer clear.

Poured well, smelled OK, but nothing (not even the chilies) made it through the cinnamon. Harsh finish with a touch of what felt like fusel alcohol. Feel was good, but then you remembered how overpowering the cinnamon was and gagged anyway...

Had this on 2 separate occasions, and age does tame it down a bit, but Huna and Prairie Bomb achieve significantly better balance of flavors
