COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Wake Up Porter is an irresistibly smooth brew with locally roasted coffee and fresh vanilla beans. They use Central Coffee Co.’s Sumatra Lintong coffee and carefully chosen specialty malts to create a warm foundation and light body. Madagascar vanilla beans lend a subtle sweetness on the finish that you’ll notice at the end of every velvety sip.

Cybercat (6444) - Georgia, USA - MAY 23, 2017
Can. Pours coffee brown with a thick and fairly persistent tan head. Aroma delivers quality coffee, roast malt, coffee, and a subtle spicy/peppery tone. Flavor offers roast malt, chocolate, coffee, earthy and spicy notes for a porter that will wake up your palate. Mouthfeel features OK body and some peppy fizz. The early bird gets the beer.

Mellow roast coffee nose and flavor. Some vanilla bean shown the the nose, but little on the palate. Balanced with a long roast coffee fade. Medium-to-light body. Pours dark brown with a minimal tan ring of head. Decent. Not outstanding.
