3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2011 Bottle. The pour was a mildly cloudy copper/amber with an orange hue and a small (less than 1 finger) off white frothy head that had decent retention and good lacing.
The aroma was of toasted caramel malts, citrus hops and a biscuit yeast with strong citrus, toffee and caramel notes.
The taste was sweetly bitter with a hint of caramel in the beginning then progressed into much bitterer flavor with a nice dose of citrus at the end, I am guessing a little lemon and grapefruit. The flavor stuck around long enough to let one enjoy the nice citrusy hoppy aftertaste.
Mouthfeel had a smooth creamy texture and a medium body with a prickly carbonation.
Overall a super refreshing ale that had a nice blending of malts, hops and citrus. And one that is most definitely worth drinking again.

6-pack from Biggie Wine & Liquor. Cloudy amber appearance with an off-white head. Aroma of toasted grains, breaded malts, light toffee/caramel, light earthy notes and a touch of spicy hops. Similar flavor, malty and somewhat rich with mild sweetness and light bitterness. Medium body, smooth and balanced feel with a creamy, lingering finish.

Piękna miedziano bursztynowa barwa, niezła piana.
Aromat zdecydowanie słodowy z nutami owocowymi, skórką świeżo wypieczonego chleba i rodzynkami. W tle alkohol i karmel. Bardzo przyjemny.
W smaku zdecydowanie słodowe, ze średnim wysyceniem, mocno owocowymi nutami, i delikatnym goryczkowym finiszem. Bardzo udane piwo.

"dead guy is a somewhat unique beer, and worth a try, but it’s a little harsh for my tastes. i like strong beers, but this has no subtlety whatsoever in the flavors. They’re not bad, just too in your face."

Possibly the second "craft" beer I ever had. Wow, that seems like a long time ago. Hazy amber with a thin white head. Honey, brown sugar, flowers and citrus.

Couleur ambré avec un col assez résistant. Nez de caramel et des notes terreuses. En bouche c’est assez simple, caramel, notes terreuses, un peu de bois. Rien d’extraordinaire.

Cloudy dark orange color with medium head. Intensely sweet malts, a bit of yeast. Mostly tastes like the sweetness of long-chewed bread. A bit of hops in the finish as well. Very sweet lingering aftertaste. A well-made sweet bock.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
DATE TASTED: October 5, 2014... GLASSWARE: Brew at the Zoo pint... OCCASION: O’s clinch, while the Browns complete the largest road comeback in history... APPEARANCE: slow, steady bubbles are mired within an opaquely beautiful orange brown body; creamy, substantial off-white head; lacing creates white fencing... AROMA: strong citric cleansing power--peach, tangerine, and orange--weds with soft pine to produce a sweet, rewarding allure... PALATE: smooth, active and bubbling to the tongue; simmering and balanced, if not a little difficult to place--could be the ale/bock moniker coming to fruition; still, highly drinkable for a beer nearly 7% ABV.....TASTE: intense melon, ear-tingling hops, and a solid malt base at the throat creates a full, demanding taste; nothing Dead here! ... OVERALL:this hybrid beguiled me at first--seeking the ale, malt made me rethink everything--the style, the glass, the night...then, seeking the malt, the crunch of West Coast hops puts me square back in a pint glass... this beer makes me ask too many questions and, frankly, I do not mind--complex and rewarding....
