Not what I was expecting from a beer that sometimes gets called a bock. Average palate, quite bubbley. More hoppy than my liking.

A very enjoyable beer, aroma of malt and hops,nice golden brown color, The flavor is crisp, dry, and bitter with a nice sense of malts in the taste as well. I very much enjoy the bitter finish. Excellent beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark orange color with a medium white head that quickly dissipated. Fruity, flowery cascade aroma. Bitter tea and candy sugar flavor. Substantial mouthfeel but not cloying due to the dryness of the hops. Tastes like a good but typical California style ale notwithstanding the fact it is called a ’bock.’

Excellent beer from someone who normally isnt classified a ’hop head’. Small head, deep honey color, strong hop/raisin/fruit taste goin on, slightl;y bittersweet finish. Overall a great NW brew.

Having tried many rogue products, i still feel the rating are a little high on most, but the dead guy ale is pretty good.

my brief websearch on this beer shows it to be something of a hybrid: a bock or oktoberfest brewed as an ale. since i don’t brew ’em and i’m just learning the nomenclature, this could be a sasparilla for all i know, but it’s a typically grand offering from rogue,my favorite domestic brewer. the chesnut color is about pantone 152, like a kestral’s back or the crown of a chipping sparrow. ’cloudy’ suggests variability so let’s call it transluscent rather. i’m guessing my bottle is a tad flat since these reluctant bubbles can only muster a fragile head of 1/4 inch. the saaz and perle malts bespeak raisin and pumpernickle, as inviting as a wink from sandra bullock. it’s sweetish, but not so much that you’d pour it over ice cream or put a paper parasol in it. yay, rogue!
