2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Iíve never been that impressed with Left Hand brews. They seem either overly complex or overly simple. Thereís no middle ground. On the other hand, itís easily available. Given a choice, Iíd drink something else.

Not much in the area of aromatics (expected for a nitro), but it makes up for it with the ultra-smooth coffee and licorice/ fennel body and light hop finish. Leaves a crisp note on the lips while going down smooth.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a nice black. Coffee/chocolate and little tobacco aroma. Flavor is awesome, rich and smooth, like roasted espresso loaded with dark bitter chocolate and kinda sweet. The alcohol is well hidden among the massive flavors.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Released April 22 at Systembolaget in Sweden.
Iíve had Wake Up Dead in a big bottle (22 oz) in 2013 and Iíve been looking forward to try the nitro version.
The beer pours clear, dark brown with a mahogny tone and a one finger high soft and creamy, beige, "nitro" head.
Nose of roasted caramel malt, coffee, fudge, molasses, brown sugar, dark fruit (raisin, plum) and licorice.
The taste is a lot similar; coffee, sweet licorice, roasted malt, brown sugar, vanilla and milk chocolate.
Mouth: Smooth and bitter. Sweet, dry ending. Not as thick as I remembered it. Still good though!
A great stout but I donít think it is getting any better with the nitro. Definitely not worth the money Iíll have to pay here in Sweden; 53 SEK (6:50 USD).

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Had the Nitro bottle. Pours a silky black with a tight tan head. Very little aroma to speak of but what is there smells of chocolate and coffee. Nice flavors of coffee, dark chocolate, molasses, raisins and licorice at the end. A somewhat creamy body with bitterness. Overall it was pretty good and interesting to have a Nitro Imperial Stout, but there are certainly much better Imperial Stouts out there.
