Wake-n-Bake is brewed with coffee roasted by Jittery Joe’s Coffee in Athens, GA. Terrapin and Jittery Joe’s built a unique coffee blend specific for this big Imperial Stout. You can purchase the actual Terrapin Wake-n-Bake coffee blend at Jittery Joe’s or online in 12oz. coffee cans.”

Bottle from Paula in jersey. Pours a medium to dark black(not as thick as some others). Aroma is huge coffee and chocolate, some smokiness and alcohol. Flavor is black coffee, some burnt chocolate, a little dried fruit and alcohol. Finish is very dry and ashy. Very nice coffee stout. Probably will age well. This was a 2014, 10th anniversary model. Only complaint is a tad thin for the style. My bottle said 9.4% not 8.1%

Fantastic coffee stout with a good flavor, maltiness and coffee balance well with a good heat from the alcohol content. This is a top five coffee stout for me.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a snifter. Smells boozy and woody with plenty of coffee aroma. Brew looks amazing--opaque black with a thin tan head. Taste is malty sweetness with a bit of alcohol bite on the front end. Then the coffee flavors hit you and sit for a while. That woody, nuttiness come around on the finish with a pleasant alcohol warming in the chest. This is a good brew to warm up with on a cold night. Palate is just perfect--full and rich with lower carbonation that gives the beer its delectable smoothness. Tasty tasty tasty. Another, please? "Never turn your back on your beer."

Love it. French toast coffee aroma immediately on both the nose and palate. One of the best coffee stouts out there. Mouthfeel is 100% perfect. High abv but it must be the strong coffee cause it is not taste boozy at all. Very nice ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2014 vintage. Pours used motor oil black. Very good head volume, excellent retention and lacing. Rich nose of coffee (most pronounced) and semisweet dark chocolate (background). Minor notes of roast and dark fruit (prunes). As it warms, alcohol and prunes are quite noticeable. Medium bodied with a smooth texture - and it has to be nearly room temperature to achieve this. Normal carbonation with a bit of effervescence in the finish. The flavor profile is reasonably intense, reasonably balanced, but lacks the complexity of World Class stouts. It begins with a blend of coffee, dark chocolate and alcohol flavors that slowly separate over a slight sweetness. In the middle, prunes and alcohol dominate over slight notes of roast and bitterness. These fade out slowly as the finish. Very good, at best.

(bottle) The aroma os freshly perked coffee and roasted coffee beans. The flavor is dominated by the natural coffee flavor and need a bit more malt and oats to balance. Probably the most intesely coffee flavored beer I have tasted to date.

Pours a very dark brown color with tan head. Coffee, oats, and lots of chocolate malt on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a combo of chocolate and coffee.
