In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


Terrapin Beer Company Wake-n-Bake

Aroma: “Dark roast coffee and roasted malt. Biscuity, toasted rich malt in the background. Spicy alcohol. Mild chocolate.”

Flavor: “Coffee-forward, followed by roast malt and alcohol. Medium hops bitterness complements roast notes. Starts quite sweet and transitions to a moderately intense acrid bitterness that’s emphasized by the medium high carbonation. The alcohol brings out a nice nuttiness and accentuates the cocoa highlights. Pleasant caramel, too.”

Overall: “Well-crafted beer. The balance of coffee and malt is nice. Alcohol warming is pleasant.”
