From notes. Pours a deep rich black with a thick dark tan head. Very nice lacing.
Very nice aroma. Dark roasted malt, coffee, and oatmeal are all upfront. There is also a nice little bit of sweetness in there.
Great rich coffee flavors, the oatmeal really gives this guy has a big full body. There is a little dark sweet fruit in there to.
As noted before very full body, the carbonation is on the higher side of medium.
This is a very nice stout, very well balanced with great flavors.

Pours black with a thin layer of brown head. Aroma is strong with overpowering java and dark chocolate with some dark fruits as well. There is also a nice roasted nuttiness that comes through. The flavor again is strong with the chocolate flavor predominating. There are also some dark espresso notes as well as some nice tartness. The consistency is very rich and thick making it almost feel like drinking chocolate espresso syrup. This may be my new favorite Terrapin brew so far.

Bottle to snifter. Looks good; a mostly opaque dark brownish black with beige head. Smells of dark malt, coffee, oats, and mild roast. Tastes like it smells with a fairly smooth medium-bodied mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

Pours a murky brown with a small caramel colored head. Aroma of roast, caramel, and dark chocolate. A roasty chocolate taste with coffee spice. Tasty, but could have used more body.

Terrapin Wake ’N Bake has a thin, beige head, a very dark brown (essentially black) appearance, and just scattered little lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of dark, but not burnt, barley malt, rich coffee, and possibly a touch of coffee. Taste is of creamy and dark malt, chocolate, grain, strong coffee, and noticeable, yet mild bitterness. Mouthfeel is on the heavy side, and Terrapin W. ’N B. finishes somewhat powdery, mildly alcoholic, and chewy. RJT

My favorite coffee stout and one of my top favorite beers. This beer is incredible. I prefer it fresh as the coffee flavor is so fresh and pure. Smell is that warm feeling when you first smell a fresh pot of great coffee on a chilly morning. No alcohol (at 9.4% for 2014) in the smell or taste what so ever. Smooth roasted creaminess, super balanced fresh coffee blended with slight vanilla and finishes with a nice light coffee lingering with a sticky Carmel mouth feel. Such a well crafted brew!

Underrated beer. Don’t always care for Terrapin’s distribution system in state, but this beer is bloody brilliant. Bottle - Green’s on Ponce - Atlanta, GA
