I like this brew. Lots of esters, lots of malty sweetness. My wife doesn’t like it, which usually means more for me.

709 requirement of grabbing and cut and paste technology. Hold on, here goes -
fruity (banana ?) medium beige earthy/floral bitter sweet notes of nuts and that hoppymonumental head that is frothy in texture. American plastic barbeque quality with the gumbo-esque dinner I had. Strikingly average. Still with a generous helping of frothy, almond chewy aftertaste tempered crisp and smooth mandari. Substantial syrup personality without stickiness. Manifest component.

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2004 really good beer, I really liked this alot. Had it on tap at a local pub, very darkish but yet light to the taste. ON tap is probably better than from the bottle. didn’t know it was a bock at the time, but will get this one again for sure

dead guy ale, came in not knowing what to expect and left completely satisfied. strange but tasty beer from rogue here, had slight hints of a pale ale, porter,bock all in one bottle. not one i’d have on a daily basis, or even as an occasional filler, but it was something new and different that wasnt half bad.

Got a pull of this at my local tavern. My buddy was alot more impressed than I was. It was overly fruity and pretentious, in my opinion. Not a brew I could sip on all night or use in a heavy bender session. In small amounts it is complex, challaning and somewhat interesting, but overall not my cup of tea.

Don’t get it on this one... it’s ok, but not that drinkable and reminds me of a heavyhanded red ale. Nothing special here.

I was lucky enough to find a few bottles of the Dead Guy ale @ shoprite liquors in Neptune, NJ. This beer produced an average off-white head and was slightly cloudy. This is a full bodied beer with a heavy dose of hops. The finish is very bitter and long lasting.

On tap at Croxely’s Ales. Poured a semi-clear orange/tannish color with an aroma of spice. Taste had some cinammon and spice in it and some bitterness.

On tap at ODBF 2004. Thank you guys at the Whole Foods booth. Bright ambers and brown, creamy white head. Nose was full of toffee, caramel, honey, fresh dough, and a slight hint of hops. Flavor matches aroma with the citric hops shining through a bit more near the end, but this remains on the malty side of the scale without a doubt. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry finish. A session brew for sure.
