Left Hand Wake Up Dead

CIMG4776

I hope the beer is as good as the label. I also love the website for this brewery, which has tons of info on their beer. This RIS is brewed with Pale, Munich, Crystal, and Chocolate malts with roasted and black barley, flaked oats, and Magnum and US Goldings hops.

Stats:
Russian Imperial Stout. 10.2% ABV. Colorado.

Dark ruby red. It’s got a tan head, but it’s not a huge one.

The nose is a bit boozy with some chocolate and roast coming through. There’s a caramel component that lightens it up a bit.

Mouthfeel is full bodied, but still has a pretty crisp carbonation.

Caramel and coffee meet, which turns into a roasty, boozy heat. It’s a big brew and the name is clearly appropriate. Although, it is less roasty than many RIS.

Not bad, and definitely worth a purchase. 88 points.
