COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Here’s a black ale to brighten your day. Wake Up Dead lurks in our cellars for over 4 months before being unleashed. Hints of raisins, black licorice, coffee and dark chocolate are followed by earthy, herbal hop notes. Any apprehensions about the rest of your day are quickly forgotten, for whatever the mind expects, it finds. Sometimes you’re not in the mood for what everyone else is having.

BeerRules (243) - Houston, Texas, USA - DEC 9, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2005 Rich creamy aroma, milk chocolate like with some vinous notes, yum. Probably the least dark impy ive seen, not that that matters much. Tastes of milk chocolate, coffee, brown sugar, and warming alcohol. Mouthfeel is super creamy and luscious, with lively spots of CO2. This was a winner, liked it a lot.

rdawson321 (145) - USA - DEC 6, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 12, 2006 Pours a black red with a chocolate malt aroma. Alcohol is fairly noticable. Very bitter and full of chocolate, caramel, molasses, and heavy roasted flavors. The alcohol is a bit too heavy, but otherwise an excellent brew.

elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - DEC 5, 2005
Sampled at the Pizza Port 9th Strong Ale Festival. Cocoa and coffee with some vanilla notes, bittering to balance, alcohol presence was notable but not offensive. A decent IS, nicely done.

Pours dark brown with an off-white head. Quite sweet, with aromas of chocolate and a hint of sweet liquirish. Quite sticky and full. Very nice. I prefer this to the oak aged version.

thegreenrooster (3566) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 3, 2005
Pour is a jet black with no head. Aroma is a stong chocolate and coffee with a touch of alcohol. Flavor is bitter chocolate with a touch of vanilla. The aroma is by far better than the flavor. Not the best impy stout but it has plenty to offer.
