ON TAP. *Cycle BA stouts typically are more muted on tap then from the bottle.
Great mouthfeel as usual for Cycle BA stouts.

The nose gets buried in delicious coffee. The barrel is there and not too hot (though I tend to not mind heat when others say beers are "hot") and the cinnamon is harder to find but there.
Per usual, I'm betting the bottles display more cinnamon. I'll find out soon enough.
TAP RATING: 4.59

BOTTLE UDPATE:
Well as I assumed might be the case, I found this even better from the bottle. The great mouth feel and coffee on the nose was just as great, but the cinnamon was much more there and really cranked this beer up a few notches for me. This is up there with Thursday for me now, though just a hair under Thursday.

I don't know what to say. One of the best beers I've ever had. Cinnamon is huge, some coffee spice and roast, chocolate, and huge coconut notes from the barrels. Liquor is very smooth and doesn't come off super hot. Sure it could be thicker, but it's rich as hell already. Near perfect.

Pours black with tan head. Smells of coffee and spices. Tastes like Thursday with less cinnamon and more coffee. Mouth feel consistent with other Cycle stouts, slightly less viscosity than BC stouts.

Another stellar stout from Cycle.

The taste of cinnamon and coffee was really well blended, it was still a little hot but it should age for a year quite nicely. I enjoyed this as much as Thursday and Tuesday but last years DOS and DCB is hard to beat! Their best variant since Barrel Age Week!!

Mouth was a little oily but super smooth.
Very tan head, smelt great!

Another fantastic Trademark Dispute beer. Got a ton of cinnamon, but the coffee was more subdued than I was expecting. I would have liked a more balanced combination, but I won't complain too much - I'd still take another bottle of it in a heartbeat.

A: Silky black gold. Texas tea, that is. Brings a dense brown head that ultimately fades. Clings to the glass.

S: Cinnamon roasted graham crackers with melted Hershey chocolate and toasted coconut, dipped in coffee/ Barrel is not highly recognizable.

T: Waves of sweet coconut (even though there's none in the beer) and cinnamon, but balanced by the tannic coffee and roast from the base stout. Finishes with smooth oaky booze. Effortlessly drinkable.

O: Another killer Cycle BA stout. My palate approves.

Small head, to an extremely thick beer. Almost like motor oil.
Smell is heavly of cineamon and a tad of bourbon.
Taste is sweet, but the cineamon takes over fast and the bourbon plays out well adding a vanilla taste with the oak and ends in a bitter dark chocolate feel.
Feel is excelent, very smooth even it the flavours is so heavy
Overall a well executed beer, extreme balance considering all the things hapening in the beer. Would drink any day.

Only minus is because of the head and that the cineamon was so heavy in the aroma. Which is pretty much good things.
