Too much cinnamon and not the good kind of cinnamon ever. Had very much the taste of swallowing a tablespoon of raw cinnamon. My brother claimed it got a lot better once it warmed to 55-60 but I couldn't even make it past that. Appearance, Feel and smell are all impressive but the flavor was just too much and very disappointing. And if anything, the cinnamon made the bitterness of the coffee even more pronounced.

L: pours thick and black with a film of khaki head.
S: coffee, maple, cinnamon. Sweet lacto milk chocolate. The cinnamon is starting to dominate the nose as it warms up.
T: the cinnamon is the main flavor jumping out. There is a wave of coffee I there...but no maple. This is a beer where there is just too much going on and it's not well integrated.
F: medium thickness, sticky feel, but a lot of carbonation.
