3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: FEB 12, 2004 Rerate 02/11/2004: On draught at the MoJoe Lounge at Easton. Pours a clear reddish-amber color with a thin skeleton-bone head. Thin and quick lacing. The aroma is mildly citrusy hops along with a touch of spice. Medium body, with a somewhat flavorable blend of floral hops, citrus, honey and spice. The flavor is kind of like Arrogant Bastard's "Mini Me". The finish is mildly bitter making this for an all-around good-drinking beer.
04/05/02 (3.4): Mine was under the 'Dead Guy' label. Citric aroma and reddish-orange color, thick and long-lasting head. I was a little put off by the flavor at first but it grew on me. Good balance of hops and fruit.

Began with a sweet overtone and then the hop dryness kicked in. There are other bock’s I prefer but certainly this is an interesting version. I had this as Dead Guy Ale.

Mmm. Good beer. Like the rest of the Rogues, it’s hard to beat.

Pretty golden color in the glass, and a sweet, slightly malty aroma make a nice intro to this brew. I was surprised at the sweet taste as well, since I figured it would be as hoppy as the other Rogue brews I’ve tried, but it wasn’t. It was sweet and smooth, but that’s about all I can say...it’s a nice brew, but not spectacular. It was a slightly hoppier version of Dundee’s Honey Brown.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Had this as ’Dead Guy Ale’ and wasn’t disappointed. I like the Shakespeare Stout better, but Rogue does offer a wide variety of beers. This one came off smooth, but not wonderfull, no bitterness, but a full-flavored beer on the whole. I’d buy it again, but would rather drink other of their products.

UPDATED: NOV 17, 2003 Fairy nice effort by Rogue. Not an
overwhelming aroma but not unpleasent.
Looks good in the glass and has
a good flavor. Pretty good.
Update: Aroma is pleasently hoppy. Flavor reminds me of a bitter. Is this brew a bock??

i detect a bit of hops in the aroma, color is a nice red..i dont derive anything that distinct from this brew...not bad at all though...not one of my favorite styles, so take what you will from my rating.
