This stout is pitch black and covered with a thin light tan head, which quickly dissipates into a thin layer surrounding the stout. Fine bubbles make up the lacing, which is dense and covers nearly the entire glass area void of stout.
The aroma is light, but dark roasted malts and chocolate are present. I’m not picking up much else at the moment.
The roasted malts make up most of the flavor; mild hops and chocolate come through. Over all the flavor is sweet and this stout is really smooth, the alcohol content is well hidden.
This is a medium bodied stout and it really warms up your taste buds.

A-Pours black with mahogany hints. Very little brownish head that dissipates quickly.
S-Smells of deep roasted malts, coffee, slight licorice, hint of booze, a hint of dark fruit.
T-Taste is excellent, with the roasted flavors giving way and melding nicely with a significant raisin flavor in the finish. The raisin flavor lingers afterward, and is very pleasant.
M-Full bodied, thick, medium-low carbonation, smooth and delicious.
O-overall an excellent beer. Reasonably priced and glad I found this little gem.

Wake Up Dead is a decent Imperial Stout....but not my favorite....there is a weird twang on the back end. The beer poured an opaque dark with thin slightly off white head that is leaving a spotty lace. The scent carries some light roast. The taste is has touches of chocolate, roast and maybe a hint of espresso backed by an alcohol push. The mouthfeel is full in body with smooth carbonation. Overall this is a decent stout and should be tried with delight.
