Wake and Bake
Poured this into a monster size gold rimmed thistle glass. The small creamy tan head settles down to a healthy skim. The body is darkness collapsed upon night, however and almost magically somehow still brown. Incredible.
The aroma is all roasted malt, deep rich coffee, a hint of coca, with a fair wallop of booze.
The flavor is sweet with toasty roasty grains, like a chocolate cupcake drowned in Kahlua. Kind of reminds me of my favorite mixed drink: The black Russian.
The mouthfeel is smooth, oily and finally sticky--all in a glorious way.
Overall this brew indeed lives up to the hype. Glad I intrepidly shelled out twelve bucks for the four pack. Truly worth it for sure.

12oz Bottle from Total Wine Tampa FL for $3.00 - 2012 edition

Appearance - Dark brown colour with a large size frothy beige head. I can't make out the amount of carbonation showing and there is some good lacing. The head lasted for around 5-6 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Malts, chocolate, vanilla, coffee, roasted notes

Taste & Mouth - There is a below average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, chocolate, and vanilla. There is also lots of coffee and some roasted/burnt notes.

Overall - Fantastic and rich, and excellent beer that I would seek out again - especially if I'm in the mood for lots of coffee flavour.

Poured an opaque black. Thick head of dense dark brown bubbles. Very slight lacing left on my glass after each sip.

Amazingly rich smell of brewed coffee and cacao. Hint of alcohol as well.

Dark coffee, bitter baking coco, and sweet lactose, followed by a slight hop twang. Ever so slight alcohol finish.

Creamy mouthfeel, with a slight oily residue left on the tongue.

Overall and excellent American Double Stout. One of the best uses of coffee in a stout I've personally tasted.

12 oz bottle, 2013, poured into a snifter

A- Black with a two finger mocha head.

S- Roasted coffee, chocolate, some oatmeal.

T- Very nice and big, plenty of roasted coffee, bittersweet chocolate, getting a touch of warmth from the alcohol.

M- Smooth, creamy, full body.

O- A great coffee stout, worth the money. I see myself buying more of this when I can.
