Thanks to Mecherd for sending me this!

12oz bottle poured into a Teku stemmed snifter. 2011 vintage

A: Jet black body with one finger of gorgeous dark brown head. Head dissipates at an average rate leaving virtually no cap and ring around the edge.

S: High quality black coffee. Something you wouldn’t dare taint with cream and sugar. A whiff of sweet molasses. There’s a slight roasted malt aroma but otherwise you might not even recognize it as beer in a blind sniff test.

T: Everything from the aroma is present, but add baker’s chocolate and pump up the molasses a touch. Most of any sweetness I get from the roasted malt just gets beat down by the bitterness of the coffee.

M: Medium body...a little light for an imperial stout, but not so much that I would ever call it thin. Mouthfeel (especially the finish) is a little on the syrupy side and that’s played up a bit by the sweet malt. Carb is on the low side which isn’t unusual for such a coffee-forward beer. Drinkability pretty high for what it is...not much alcohol burn to be found.

O: Coffee flavors often fade first in a beer, but that’s not much of a problem with Wake-N-Bake even though it’s approaching 1 year old. One of my top 5 favorite coffee beers. Unfortunately I have to trade to get it and I will continue to do so.

12oz bottle thanks to axeman 9182, enjoyed at a small 3-person tasting (split 3-ways). Poured into Founders snifter. 2011 vintage.

A- Pours a completely opaque dark black with a thin layer of creamy mocha brown head that recedes fairly fast. Not too much carbonation apparent.

S- Roasted espresso beans, dark chocolate, creamy coffee. Definitely above average aroma strength, definitely pleasant aroma strength. Coffee held up even though over 8 months old.

T- Coffee (not as much as in the aroma), espresso beans, creamy dark chocolate, some lightly roasted malts. Light coffee aftertaste. Very well balanced, definitely full of flavor. Age might have reduced the coffee a little bit.

M- Creamy, smooth, easy to drink, not bitter at all.

O- This was a very nice stout. Definitely easy to drink, full of flavor (although I feel some of the coffee might have faded with age), awesome creamy mouthfeel. I would definitely recommend trying this out if you like coffee stouts, I probably wouldn't recommend aging it too much. The coffee held up decently well in the aroma, however I think it faded a little bit in the taste.

Thanks to Commis for the trade. Poured into a pint glass.

The beer pours a thick black with an off-white slightly creamed coffee colored head that disappears rather quickly and left no lacing along the sides of the glass. The aroma of the beer is rich in chocolatey goodness with hints of coffee and alcohol. The flavor is rich and deep. It starts off silky smooth on the tongue and quickly turns into a bold and rich chocolate malt and coffee flavored beverage. The Oatmeal lends an extremely smooth mouthfeel. The flavors are almost of a burnt milkshake and the 8.1 % ABV is easily masked by much better flavors.

This is a winner. The appearance and lack of head or lacing was slightly disappointing, but the flavor and MF are dead on. A wonderful Imperial stout.
