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.

750 mL bottle poured, thanks to Dustin. Cool to try this one, after trying the barrel aged version last year. Would prefer to try them in the other order, but thats cool. Dark, near black pour with a cream foam head. A huge coffee aroma here, as expected. Bitter coffee roast flavor, but doesnt have a boozy imperial feel to it. Coffee and cream in a beer, with some caramel. A delicious treat of a porter. Awesome.

The main that stands out is the natural balanced coffee blended with dark malt. Very smooth, balanced beer.

750 ml Bottle, 2016 vintage. Tan head that lasted throughout the snifter. Aroma is mild coffee, mild chocolate, mild grain. The flavor is decent amount of coffee, body is backed by chocolate and light roast. The texture has a velvet texture.

Panzuriel (2138) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - FEB 18, 2017
Appearance: Deep dark brown. Two fingers of tan foam. Nose: Deeply roasted malts, coffee, caramel, dark chocolate bitters and roasted nuts Taste: More of the nose. Coffee, dark chocolate and roasted nuts. Earthy. Touch of sweetness. Body: Fuller and creamier. Parting thoughts: A big coffee porter. Breweries are doing well incorporating local coffee roasters premium products into beer. I would love to see this continue.

750 ml bottle poured into a brandy snifter. The beer is a dark brown to black with a khaki head of foam. The aroma has notes of toffee, roasty coffee, molasses, and bitter dark chocolate. Roasty and moderately bitter throughout. Bigger body and slightly chewy. Moderate carbonation.

On tap at Haute Dish. Pours black with a dark brown head that dissipates slowly to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma has dark grains and strong coffee with some roasted malts underlying. Flavor combines dry roasted malts and coffee with bitter dark grains backing.

On tap at Lucky Pie, Denver, CO. Dark brown, almost black, pour with a creamy beige head. Rich roasted coffee aroma with light floral hops. Taste features rich roasted malts, dark chocolate, coffee, and faint caramel. Pleasant coffee finish. Nicely done.

Bill Becker (972) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - OCT 3, 2016
Black pour with +1"head of tan foam. Smells of coffee, roasted malt, chocolate mixed with caramel. Same as smell but falls a bit short in terms of vibrancy. Silky smooth mouthfeel. Very impressive, not overly strong, Imperial. I dig it immensely.

Grunt fill from Albertsons. Almost black pour with full, thick, creamy beige head. Mild aroma of coffee and chocolate.. Taste brings some mellow bitterness, the coffee blending well with the dark malts and dome low key sweetness. Incredibly smooth. Bitterness lingers on the palate
