COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Wake Up Call Imperial Coffee Porter has a distinct and robust coffee flavor that blends harmoniously with the roasted malts. Caramel, chocolate, and black malts give this ale its dark color and overtones of caramel and a cocoa-like sweetness. Only very gently hopped, the addition of coffee shines through, providing a delicious accent to this brew.

The aroma is coffee like with burnt malt, chocolate, pumpernickel bread, and hops. The appearance is almost black with a tan head. The taste is like the aroma with a strong bitterness. The palate is typical. Overall interesting but not a favorite.

2011 Cellar Reserve opened in September of 2012. Holds up quite well. Deep unfiltered brown-black, fluffy beige head. Sublime, sweet, delicious. Big chocolate and coffee flavors, but they balance each other out well. Some cocoa and mellow hop bitterness holds the whole thing together. It’s certainly not so Imperial, this is pretty mild and tame, and while still bodied, is quite drinkable...maintaining it’s Porter characteristics quite well. Quite an impressive, enjoyable offering, bonus points for not falling apart with age.

Black pour, khaki head. Nose is coffee, chocolate, roasted malts, syrup, and more coffee. Nice palate, heavy coffee, light roasted malts, sweet finish.

(750ml bottle thanks to bu11zeye) clear rich Espresso brown, soapy tan bubbles. Nose of extremely rich espresso, biscotti, cream, smells complex and awesome. Taste of stale coffee, bakers chocolate, medium to thin body, very dry, unsweet brownies.

Bottle, shared with Parksy and Grippitis. Very dark brown, medium light brown head. Delicious aromas of dark roast coffee, toasted coconut, hints of vanilla. Coffee flavour, bitter roast, light vanilla, light licorice. Bitter and balanced. Very enjoyable.

Dark brown pour with a fleeting off white head. Thin and bitter with black coffee and bitter hoppy notes...

22 ounce bottle pours a black color, aromas of light coco, light vanilla, and huge amounts of coffee. Flavors are cold black coffee with a kiss of vanilla added. Nice beer overall, could easily drink this first thing at a tailgate.

Not a bad brew. Nothing special though. Left me wanting a little more. No creaminess to this brew...

hopscotch (9559) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 21, 2012
Bottle… Midnight black ale with a mid-sized, lightly tanned head. Good retention. The nose supplies ample notes of espresso, cocoa and scorched malts with a subtle kiss of vanilla. Medium to full-bodied and creamy with moderate carbonation. The flavor provides lots of coffee and cocoa layered upon caramel and tangy, bitter hops. Finishes nutty, then a touch tangy.

Dark brown pour, brown head. Roasty aroma with lots of char and coffee. Flavor is roasted malt, coffee, some chocolate, and hops.
