On tap in a snifter. Solid black pour with a small dark brown head. The aroma is fresh chocolate and coffee with a hint of cream and a solid dose of woodiness. The flavor is a bit sour with lots of chocolate and coffee. The wood comes through definitely, but there is some astringency.

Pours a deep warm opaque sable with a good fine-bubbled tan head. Aroma is rich, woody, smoky and malty with hints of chocolate and coffee. Rich flavor is mainly of quality roast coffee with a firm hint of chocolate. Texture is fairly thick, smooth, edgy and fizzy, leaving a cola-like fizz and a smoky, slightly sweet finish. Strongly recommended.

Draft at Taco Mac Metropolis. Glad to try this before it went off. Black, tan head. Aroma was chocolate and coffee, rich malt. Flavor matched. Smooth, rich. Coffee was there, but quite toned down. I did not really detect oak. Perhaps the oak settled down the coffee, lightened the body, and allowed some additional dark fruit to come through. Who cares? It was tasty.

This was luscious. Deep, rich coffee undertones. Beautiful in the glass. Im not extremely knowledgeable about beer, but I enjoyed this and would drink it again.

On tap at Dunedin Brewery for Stogies and Stouts. Pours a mean dark brown with a tan head. Nose is coffee, vanilla, chocolate, roast, earth, and some background sweetness. Flavor is similar with lots of balances oak, vanilla, chocolate, and coffee. Delicious and slightly lighter in body than regular Wake N Bake. Excellent.

Cask sample @ Brewvival on 2/27/10. Had to come to Charleston to get this even though its been floating around Taco Macs throughout ATL... pitch black pour with a 1/2" tan head... medium oak nose with subdued coffee notes... slight bitterness... medium body... the cask conditioning really has toned this down. a bit of oak throughout.

On tap at the 2010 installment of Stogies and Stouts pouring very stouty looking with semi creamy tan head. The aroma is a bit chocolate, a bit vanilla and maybe some caramel. The aroma is a little on the light side making it difficult to pick out the competing aroma notes. The flavor however isnt at all light. It starts out with chocolate malts and burnt malts but theyre sort of semi sweet. Just after that a fruitiness surfaces with sweet grapes and dates. By midway a caramel sweetness overwhelms the fruit notes into the finish. I didnt get any wood treatment anywhere in this. Still, its Wake n Bake, tasty stuff.

draft/cask at Brewvival as Dugout. finally got to try this one after missing it 3 times in last couple months. pours a deep black with a thick, rich tan head and sticky lacing. aroma is simply wonderful with tons of fresh roasted coffee, oatmeal, chocolate fudge, sweet vanilla, oak, and a unique fruity cereal bar note. flavor, according to my notes, is a wow moment with rich chocolate cake, fresh roast coffee, vanilla custard, whiskey, and perfectly integrated bourbon notes adding a bit of spice. palate is rich and velvety smooth with mild carbonation and a long, sweet, roasted coffee finish. overall, awesome.

Brewvival. Dark pour with a thin tan head. Aroma is roasted coffee and oaky tannins. Flavor is roast, vanilla, coffee, and toffee. The oak adds a spicy dimension

Tap @ Dunedin for Stogies and Stouts 10. So how does one of my favorite Terrapin fare? its insane! pours picth black, mocha head. Aroma roasted/coffee, chocolate and a light oak/wood flavor that is not overly done but really brings the W-B to a new dimension. Flavors, perfect oak aged, palate is not overtaken by a massive amount of oak but instead the aging blends very well with the base beer. Warming mouthfeel, lots of coffee, thick chocolate malt and grainy mouthfeel. Finishes smooth with light oak wood and a lingering coffee roast.
