Black as night, rich, full bodied, and loaded with coffee taste and aroma. It pours with a creamy brown head and has a mouthfeel that is velvety smooth. It includes Coasta Rican coffee roasted by J. Martinez coffee roasters in Atlanta. This 7.5% abv cask version has been aged for over a month on French vanilla oak chips.

Growler from Vine & Barley. Pours black with brown head. Aromas of coffee, roasted malts, vanilla, chocolate and wood. Similar flavors. The barrel ageing hasnít had as much affect as I was hoping. Still a nice brew. Full body with soft carbonation and a creamy mouthfeel. I think I like the original version slightly better.

Draft at redlight. Pours a pitch black color with a light brown around the edge and topped by a small film of tan colored foam that quickly dissipates to a thin ring with no lace left behind. The aroma shows notes of dark chocolate, roasted coffee beans, roasted barley, and a touch of oats. There is a touch of oak and vanilla in there as well, but the chocolate and coffee are dominant. The flavor follows the same theme with the bittersweet chocolate and roasted coffee up front while hints of oats, earthy hops, and touch of vanilla are detected on the back end. There isnít much there from the oak, which is dissapointing for sure. Medium bodied on the mouthfeel, but a touch thinned compared to the base beer and a long, roasted coffee finsh. Itís still a good beer, but I had high hopes for this one.

Draft at Redlight Redlight. The body is nearly black, showing just a bit of mahogany brown when strongly backlit. A very thin brown film dissipates into a skinny ring around the edge, leaving no lacing behind. Aromas are of dark, bittersweet chocolate, roasty coffee, and toasted barley, with hints of cooked oats and a little fresh, oaky vanilla character. Flavors follow suit, mainly based in bakerís chocolate, barley and oat grain roast, and day-old coffee bitterness, hinting at some earthen hops on the back end. The oak hasnít added much, and in fact, I donít think the chocolate or coffee are as robust as they are in the base beer (perhaps just a batch difference). The biggest surprise (read: disappointment) comes on the palate, where the substance is relatively lacking, and the consistency is semi-dry, almost to the point of being chalky on the finish. While itís a good brew, it is quite disappointing when compared to fresh batches of regular Wake-N-Bake from a couple years ago.

32oz growler for Bryan...pours a medium dense dark cola black pour with a thin light beige head... Spent coffee grinds, sweet and bitter, chocolate and roast. Oak remains pretty non-existent, aroma-wise... Flavors are much of the same with a big coffee component, good flavor, but lacking in body. Unfortunately can hardly detect any oak. Nice but not much better than the original. 8/4/8/3/15

Thanks to Exiled for sharing this 12 ounce handbottle. The beer pours dark brown to black with very small brown bubbles. There is no head. The aroma is oak, roasted malt, cayenne pepper and chocolate. The flavor is very heavy on the oak with a ton of chocolate, vanilla and some coffee. Thin-medium mouthfeel and low carbonation. I wish the beer was a little thicker, but other than that, the beer is very good.

On tap at Rustico. Pours a viscous, opaque black with a thin, creamy, ruddy brown head. The aroma is absolutely perfect, great coffee, the sort of coffee aroma thatís got a hint of fresh berry as well, brown sugar, dark toast, wood, whiskey, a little vanilla. The oak is lacking a touch in the flavor, but the coffee is still there, bready, malty, sweet. Finish is full bodied and a little creamy. I really wanted more oak flavor, but either way I highly enjoyed this.
