Review on cask 12/2014:
Pours dark as expected, close to if not black. Foamy deep tan head sits on surface well into pour, lacing the glass. Nose to me is amazing, sweetened coffee with cream; a smokiness to the roasted malt has a cigarette (or similar) smell. Truly deep roasted notes throughout.

The taste follows the nose except for a tad less sweet, more like a barely sweetened black coffee. The roasted smokiness (not rauchbier-like) from the nose also hits the tongue mid taste. The end taste adds a bit more hops bitterness, grassy in nature, and dry in the vein of (but different than) how a dry Irish stout ends. The one detraction to me is that the feel is a bit light, even a tad watery, and I think feel is important in this style. I realize the cask could be at least partially affecting this, but that's what I have to review. That said, it is also oily smooth, which does redeem the feel a bit.

This is definitely a beer to have one of when available, and probably only one. This is not because of the quality, but for me I am not sure I want the flavor profile repeatedly (I also usually stop at one cup of coffee).

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.
