4.35/5 rDev +1.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: Wake 'n Bake pours out close to pitch black and is opaque in the glass. A dark mocha head forms, which has pretty nice retention. Lacing is good as well.
Smell: Lots of roasted malt and coffee come out first on the nose. I get more slightly sweet chocolate than I was anticipating, as well as a light dose of floral hops that really rounds this beer out well. On the nose I definitely prefer this beer over FBS.
Taste: Roasted malts, coffee and chocolate all come out in great waves. The sweetness of the chocolate really balances out the bitterness of the coffee nicely. I definitely get some hops on the back end that again adds to the balance.
Mouthfeel/Drinkability: This beer is right on medium bodied, and drinks extremely smoothly due to just about perfect carbonation levels. It is a bit light for my taste. I find this beer very drinkable. Very nice flavors. Overall I probably like it just a bit better than FBS, actually.

4.2/5 rDev -2.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Pours black with ruby edges and a half-finger of tan head that retains nicely. Ground black coffee dominates the nose, which also has dark chocolate, toasted oats, raisins, and a hint of vanilla. I taste a lot of dark chocolate up front with some vanilla and caramel, then coffee on the back end with roasted malts. The flavor profile is great and the beer really evolves in the mouth, but I get an astringency from the roasted malts that detracts from the taste. The body is on the full side of medium with medium carbonation.
