Left Hand Wake Up Dead ....

To start off the holiday weekend I will have a Wake Up Dead Imperial Stout from Left Hand Brewing Company.  22 ounce bottle.  The web site lists 10.2% ABV and 45 IBUs.

This beer poured with a small, rich brown head.  Beer color is a very dark reddish brown/black.  No light shows through when you hold the glass up to a light.  The aroma has some cocoa, a dark fruit sweetness, oak and caramel.  In the taste I am getting roasted malt, cocoa, coffee, dark fruit and a hint of the higher alcohol.  There is underlying bitterness through most of the sip.  Heavy and creamy.  The aftertaste leaves you with a little roasted malt and a slight bitterness.  This has a lot going on, and is tasty.
