what exactly do you concider the 'stout' flavor? I don't think this is the right type of beer to do apples and cinnamon... perhaps and amber would be a better combo?

Why don't you try a spiced Cyser?

There's one I did several years ago that the members of our brew club called "liquid apple pie."

Or, is that off the flavor profile you seek?

A chocolate porter, might be a better match for the apples and cinnamon.

If you're shooting for a lot of apple flavor, I'd recommended substituting a gallon of water with a gallon of cider.

Yeh probably not the best style to use apple and cinnamon. I second the amber ale idea, maybe with Burton Ale yeast? It has a subtle apple flavor to my taste buds.
