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.

gyllenbock (4634) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 29, 2011
Bottle, vintage 2011. Dark brown with a small, tan head. This beer was mostly about coffee, coffee grounds and some wet ash. Not a bad beer but it became a bit boring and one-dimensional after a while.

scooterbub (830) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - DEC 24, 2011
12 ounce bottle. Pours black with a red hue and a nice one in tan head that quickly fades. Taste is of coffee, chocolate, roasted malts, smoke, some pine, resin and a bit of hops. The aroma is similar, but mostly clean. The body is full. The finish is slightly dry and a touch bitter. Easy to drink, enjoyable and really reminds me of a good cup of coffee.

One of those big old Teton bottles, I spied it at the Christmas party. Pours a dark cloudy brown color with a medium white head. The aroma is sweet coffee and some vanilla. The flavor ends up as a nice brew with cocoa, massive dominating milky and roasted coffee, some toffee and caramel. Simple and nice.
