Rogue Markets this as Dead Guy Ale.. Picking it up I expected it to be something else flavor wise... I was surprised... It is certainly not what one thinks of as an Ale... It has a darn complex flavor.. It’s hard to describe... It seems more like a fancy-schmancy import than some domestic micro Ale...
Recommend trying to once.. won’t appeal to everyone’s tastebuds, but is pleasant with no annoying lingering taste.

Not quite as much flavor as I would like. Not bad but could be better. Although I’m not the biggest fan of bock in the world.

This was a bock? It had none of the heaviness or extreme maltiness that area apparent in some bocks. Great looking orange and red tinted copper color. Expertly balanced..I can’t say that either the matls or hops were too much. Noticed a honey-bready sensation among a few other things, then a crisp bit of hops bitterness at the finish. Very nice.

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2009 Bread-like yeast, caramel and peach syrup…In the distance, a subtle citrusy hop bitterness…A tad too fatty sweet to be quaffable and a tad too lazy to be complex, but this is still drinkable and pleasant…

Looks like a Marzen, Advertised as an Ale, classified as a Bock. You tell me! Sweet malty nose. Initial sweet fruit flavor with a hop bite in the finish. A very interesting brew.

Clear, a beautful copper with orange hues. Decent head and lace. Malty nose with some caramel and honey sweetness. Medium bodied,very rich, crisp,earthy hops, honey is definite present, solid malt (cereal like) backbone. A divinley balanced brew.

True amber color, beige head. Initially crisp in the mouthfeel. Tastes then alternate between a sweet malty honey flavor and a refreshing hop taste...well balanced...well done.
