f.k.a. Left Hand Oak Aged Imperial Stout

GOOD MORNING. YOUíVE WOKEN UP DEAD. YOUíRE IN RUINS. On the brink of catastrophe. But donít be discouraged. You are ripe for a revolution! Just like the Bolsheviks of the early 1900ís, our barrel-aged Russian Imperial Stout doesnít happen overnight. Patience is required. Wake Up Dead hibernates in our cellars for over 12 months before being blended to woody perfection. Hints of raisins, cherry, licorice and toffee, followed by earthy, herbal hop notes that rise up, joining in your fight for a better life. Donít be afraid of the dark. All power to the stouts!

Not a bad impy. Pours out a black color with a nice brown head. Aroma was big on malt with a nice mix of choco, coffee, vanilla. Flavor was a bit boozy at first but as it warmed the notes of coffee choco malt and vanilla shined through. had a decent finish. Overall not a bad brew.

Mediocre.

boxofrane (2553) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 4, 2015
Draft at world of beer in Denver. Pours pitch black with a small white head. The aroma has very little to speak of. I asked my wife to smell to make sure Iím not off. The taste has a lot of oak, vanilla, roasted malt, chocolate, a bit sweet. Not a bad brew by any means but not exceptional either.

Bomber from HEB Pin Oak in Katy, TX. Poured into a teku glass. Appearance is dark black with thin white slightly tan head. Aroma of heavy booze and smoked malt. Taste dominated by booze of the first note then dissapates into a intertwined oak and smoked malt notes finishes boozy. I would imagine this would age gracefully.
