COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
JLS Release #34: Double Dead Guy ~ initially released in kegs for JLS accounts, this new elixir will be launched in 750 ml ceramic bottles in the spring of 2008! D2 (our nickname for Double Dead Guy) is a new reincarnation of Rogue’s classic Dead Guy Ale. Mahogany in color, full bodied with an amazing mid-palette richness of toffee and caramel. The hops are evident also, with just enough to keep the maltiness in check. The finish lasts > 15 seconds!! D2 is Double the Fun! Malts: 2-row Pale, Munich, C15. Hops. Cascade for boil (because John was out pf Perle) and Crystal for aroma (because John was out of Sterling ...) IBU’s approx 50-60. 19.8 Plato Original Gravity, 4.9 Plato Terminal Gravity.

Rated from notes taken on 11 Jul 2011 -- This is a beer that Rogue doubled, and did it right. This is regular Dead Guy, but for big boys, maltier with a little more booziness.

On tap at the SF taproom. It pours a clear auburn color with an off white head. The aroma has some distinct sweet tea notes with caramel and cherry like maltiness. Touches of herbal hops. The flavor is the same. Fruity tea with caramel and a floral bitterness. Medium bodied. Pretty nice.

Transfer from BA review on 8-30-12- Served on tap in a 10 oz snifter Appearance – Served a reddish amber colored beer with a small white head. The head has fantastic retention and fades to give a nice great level of lacing. This is one fantastic looking brew. Smell – The aroma is heavy of a bready malt and a nice caramel sweetness. Mixed with these smells are lighter aromas of a floral and herbal nature as well as a lighter citrus hop smell. Taste – The taste begins of a huge malty flavor that is lightly sweetened with caramel and honey. The sweetness begins to lose ground however with flavors of a hoppy nature coming to the tongue. Piney and earthy tastes make themselves known and mix with some herbal flavors. While lost for a moment the sweet flavors of a caramel nature come back stronger at the end, and combine with the hop and malt to leave a balanced taste on the tongue. Mouthfeel – This beer has a super creamy body with a quite low level of carbonation. It’s fantastic!! The creaminess is god for the malty flavors with the low level of carbonation accentuating the somewhat lighter hop flavors; bringing them from the background. Overall – The look and feel of this brew was outrageous!! While not as fantastic as the look and feel, its other attributes were great as well. Definitely one to try.

BadAprilia1000 (256) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 26, 2014
Pours a muddy amber color with a good sized head. Aroma is thick malt, bread, rye, raisins, lots a caramel, toffee, and a slight licorice. Taste is sweeter than the aroma. Big sweet malts, bread, no rye that the nose had, thin caramel, lots of raisin and other stone fruit, some plum, and licorice again at the finish. Very drinkable for the big notes in it, very interesting, a bit vegetal almost for an American Strong. Definitely a good beer, would recommend it to those wanting a surprise when rating.

Tapp Ölrepubliken - doftar smörkola, humle och anis. Silkeslen i munnen kraftig maltsmak med en värme från alkoholen.

XS 2013. Swing top ceramic bottle (well flash!). Sticker said imported to NZ Oct 2013 (for DoD?) Looking, smelling, tasting great. For me the malts were the stand out - a style the NZ beers tend to stay away from. Complex malts - caramel being the most obvious but hints of all manner of things banana bread, vanilla, chocolate, and a long lasting after taste. Hops present but subtle. The alcohol not obvious either.

beerbaaron (1198) - Arizona, USA - JUL 8, 2014
2013 vintage. Unclear dark amber with a decent sized soapy white head. Smells like extra strength dead guy. Imperial maibock is a better description than American strong ale. Aroma is Malty. Caramel. Bready. Flavor much the same. Medium body. Mild bitterness. Some spiciness. Alcohol hidden well. Dry bread crusty finish. A nice enjoyable ’big’ maibock.

DocJitsu (902) - Florida, USA - MAY 28, 2014
Pours a dull, cloudy honey-amber color with and off-white, nearly nitro head. Creamy pull candy and ripe fruit nose. More than full, but not quite thick. Pull candy, wood, light smoke, and ripe fruit sweetness and bitterness.
