What makes this stout so excellent is how well the coffee is blended with the beer. In this respect, Wake n' Bake is one of the most successful coffee stouts out there. The base beer does not match the quality of Goose Island Bourbon County or Great Divide Yeti. Unlike these beers, however, Wake n' Bake requires no aging--it is perfectly balanced right now.

A: Motor oil black with little brown head. No lacing.

S: COFFEE. Lots and lots of coffee. Smells like a freshly ground bag of coffee beans.

T: Again, lots of coffee. Some caramel and dark chocolate as well. No taste of alcohol at all.

M: Medium bodied for a stout. Not too thick where you can't drink more than one, but not too thin also.

O: Pretty interesting beer. Definitely something I'm glad I bought but not sure if I'd buy it again.

Sampled from a 12oz bottle purchased at Tasty Beverage in Raleigh, NC.

A - Black with no light coming through and a small tan head that dissipates quickly.

S - Mostly coffee but not overwhelming. It's joined by some nice dark chocolate and hints of oatmeal.

T - Coffee leads but again doesn't dominate. There are some wonderful malt flavors, especially chocolate, and a mild sweetness. It's complex yet balanced and lacks any rough edges. It's so smooth. The alcohol is well hidden.

M - Thick but not quite as chewy as I expected. A low carbonation that helps ensure a smooth delivery.

O - I'm not a coffee drinker but I can enjoy it in a beer if done well. Terrapin really makes it work in this brew. I plan to pick up some more.

2007 vintage enjoyed december 2013...into a snifter.

pours an opaque black with a nice head (still!) the smell has definitely been toned down in 6+ years but the coffee is definitely still there...but i get much more of the chocolate now. Taste actually has quite a good amount of coffee still as well, and a lot of toasty notes as well as a big amount of chocolate. its definitely past its prime a tad though. probably perfect at the 3 year mark. full bodied, mild carbonation.

overall the 2007 was still drinking nicely in 2013!
