Good morning, Weekenders and Advocates! It may be early here on the East Coast, but now is the time - and this is the place - to crack open a beer you've never before had - a new to you beer - and come tell us about it! As always, pictures and review links are welcome, but the only requirement is that you tell us something about how the beer smells, tastes, feels, and most importantly, whether or not you like it! I'm personally celebrating being home, if only for the (long) weekend. Hence, the pre-9 am beer and thread kickoff. Being back in my own bed, next to my partner, my pup sprawled across my legs, brings an unbelievable feeling of comfort. I don't know what defines home for you, but for me, it's wherever my partner and I can be together. Today's first beer serendipitously wound up being a great choice for a breakfast beer: Cinnamon Toastie by Lone Pine of Portland, Maine. This is my first beer from Lone Pine, and while I did clock in -rDev, I suspect that the more people try this beer, the worse my -rDev will become, because I think it's a really damn good beer. It just doesn't tick all the boxes when you rate every aspect by itself. This is a very roasty beer, in particular on the nose; it could almost pass as a coffee beer. The cinnamon is noticeable but not overpowering. The vanilla is primarily complementary. Sweetness is present but low to moderate; it's definitely not a dessert beer. I love the way the flavors come together. It reminds me of Founders Breakfast Stout - not in the flavors themselves, but just in how it fits so well for a breakfast beer. Full tasting notes in the review. I really enjoyed this one. Take my modest rating with a grain of salt and try it yourself. https://www.beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/44548/573521/?ba=Roguer#review 3.81 / -1.3% Cheers, Weekenders!
