Beer for breakfast sounds like the sort of thing that calls for an intervention, but when beers come as potently infused with oats and coffee as Terrapin’s Wake-n-Bake imperial stout, you’ll be forgiven if you begin daydreaming about having one of these with your morning eggs. The aroma of fresh roasted coffee beans dominates each glass: one whiff and you’ll be craving a side of pancakes. Hints of chocolate sweetness peak out from behind a glorious punch of java, while this beer’s full body borders on chewy. It truly is a meal in a glass—but at a robust 9.4 percent ABV, you won’t want to gorge on this liquid food. Sip it like you would a cup of Joe. Coffee beer lovers, do not miss this. Try it now at Pinocchio’s.
