Had this on tap at Taco Mac Decatur. I believe the pitcher was 21 bucks and some change. Always wanted to try this, but never had the chance . . . until now. Served up in standard pint glasses.
A: Pours the deep black that you expect from the regular version of Wake and Bake. Have a thin, but rich mocha colored head resting on top. The body is oily and inky. Nice shine to it. You are not seeing through this puppy at all. The little amount of head you get, lasts throughout the experience. Little streaks of lace scatter on the glass.
S: You know, its not much different from the original. Lots of coffee and espresso. Rich and dark chocolate malts coming out along with a good deal of oatmeal. The biggest difference in the two is probably the light line of vanilla that comes through the nose here a bit. Otherwise, I'd say this is damn close to the original.
T: Yet again, other than a vanilla presence, this is damned near the same as the original. The biggest difference I can tell, is the bite is smoothed out a bit. Wake and Bake has a touch of bitterness to it with some alcohol bite to it fresh, but this one has a level of smoothness to it (probably from ageing I imagine). Vanilla is light but not drastically changing anything in here.
M: Same goodness. Alcohol burn may be tamed a bit but its still that big ass, full bodied, heavy beer you know and love. Chewy and lasting. Aftertastes of coffee and malt.
D: Just as good as the original because its not that far off. This one is a bit smoother than the original, but that is about all the difference. The ageing doesn't really change the beer that much. Still its just as good and why the marks are exactly the same as the original. I need to side by side these beers to fully understand the differences, but I couldn't tell much of any changes. Still tasty and worth the experience. Will have again.

On tap at Kickbacks. Big stout aroma. A sipper: with wine character, fruitiness, and coconut. The coconut throws me off a bit, though others like it. Black, little head, this one was aged a while.
Decent mouthfeel. I have to have this in the winter in front of a fireplace. As a cask, would throw off the carbonation and be easier and smoother to go down.

Wow, first time have this wonderful stout from Terrapin and what a cool fun coffee stout it is.
Pours very dark which appears thick, somewhat like oil or old gas station coffee. Had to splash the last bit to get some head. Head was carmel in color with darkened highlights on the top sprinkled about and measured about one and half fingers.
Overwhelming coffee aroma like espresso or dark chocolate.
Obvious stout with strong dark malt but then a bit more complex with lots of coffee and cocoa notes. If you go deeper you can taste oatmeal and oak
Drinks smooth, full body, high alcohol seems hidden but similar to your morning joe one or two should do.
After taste is a bit noticeable, think red wine or pipe smoke. With a big boy stout I expect that comes with the Terrapitory.
Great beer and I look forward to having again
