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.

On tap at (No shit) Fucking Applebees. Blow me over with a fucking feather! Poured clear black, with q reddish core. Thin tan head, fine lacing. Nose is tight, with black coffee, sweet licorice, molasses, and bitter chocolate. This isnt a giving or generous nose, its very tight, but the complexity is there... Flavours of roast, soap, spice/heat, molasses, creosote. After a 15 hour fucking drive, sitting in a fucking Applebees at fucking midnight, this drank pretty fucking good.

If you like the strong coffee taste, this is your beer but if you are looking for a perfect blend of coffee and sweet caramel/chocolate taste, you will be disappointed. I like the sweet coffee taste myself, could not recommend this to any Porter/Stout drinker.

750ml from Total Wine, Greenville, SC. Roiling dark brown pour with a vigorous head. Roasts and papery malts in the aroma. Can tell this would have been better fresh. Crisp carb, a bit paper, chocolatey, faded coffee and hops. Okay.

Served on tap at Pizza Port OB. The appearance is a good looking coffee brown with a small head. Great coffee aromas with nice malts. The flavors are coffee with an acidic edge and cocoa. Nice oatmeal flavors and texture as well although is isnt supper creamy. Medium roasty mouth. A nice coffee porter.

Bottle pours brown-black with think head. Aroma caramel malts, coffee. Taste caramel and dark chocolate, slight roast and coffee, vegetal notes. Palate full and creamy. Finish slight hops and roast. Alcohol not detectable..

Good but not great coffee stout.

750ml poured into snifter. Black, less then a finger of tan, cream color head. Bottle conditioned not to much carbonation. Carmel, dark chocolate, roasted malts, and at the end roasted coffee for the aroma. Sweet right up front, chocolate and carmel hit right away finishes with the roasted coffee that blends amazing with the roasted malt. Almost a smokey after taste, but the coffee is more there. Medium to light body. Overall not great, but still pretty solid and very good. Cheers

A - pours near opaque mahogany with high fluffy brown head that disappears quickly and laces immediately. S - very simplistic aromas of burned malts, coffee grounds, and hints of wood and caramel malts. Very uninteresting. M - nice medium bodied porter. Simplistic tastes. Lingering dark malty ending. With a light alcohol ending. Lightly sticky sweet through out. T - vegetal and burned malts up front. Coffee grounds, toffee, and dark brown sugar. Lingering subtle soapy and malty not. O - overly simplistic coffee porter. 6/6+

Bottle. Pours a black color with a tan head. Sweet coffee, roasted malts aroma. Coffee and malt flavor with a strong bitter coffee bean after taste. Not the best coffee porter Ive had, but pretty good.
