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.

Bottle shared by Curran. Thanks man!
Pours a thin looking watery black, with a small quarter inch head, and not much lacing.
Smells incredibly strongly of nutty roasted coffee, with roasted malt, and baker's chocolate.
This has one of the strongest coffee flavors in a stout that I've ever had, but it's also nicely integrated, as well. Creamy chocolate and vanilla flavor- slightly bitter chocolate chip flavor, with Hershey's syrup, a cookies and cream flavor, and a very small amount of hop bitterness.
This one is medium bodied, but I wish it was a little thicker. Low carbonation, creamy, very smooth mouthfeel.
A real classic that I'm glad I'm finally getting to try for the 1st time.
