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!

Keg Half Pint at White Horse American Beer Festival 2009, Parsons Green, London in July 2009 - Pitch Black in colour. Very Malty; roast/burnt malts, caramel, burnt sugar, chocolate, espresso, oak, vanilla. Fruity; dark fruits. Hoppy; earthy herbal hops. Warming alcohol quite evident. Roast malty with a slightly bitter edge. Terrific Imperial Stout! (2009-07)

Wake up Dead imp. Stout. (Love the name) Nice, dark, chewy. This has aged a bit, because the alcohol heat is present but mellowed. Bitter hop toward the end, but not overpowering. Definitely a sit, sip and enjoy a good book while listening to "Suzy Q", yes that is playing right now.

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.

3.9
kevinator (2176) - The Colony, Texas, USA - JUN 21, 2015
Malty aroma with hints of oak and chocolate. Breautiful dark color with a tan foamy head. Heavy weight with a smoothness. Flavors of roasted malt, chocolate, wood and a slight bitter finish. Good stuff.
