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.

On tap. Dark reddish amber with small off white head. Aroma of malt, biscuit, faint marmalade and fruity hops, dipa is my spontaneous impression. Taste is malty, grain, fruit, biscuit and marmalade. Thin texture with fairly low carbonation. Nice!

This was a good beer on the tap at P Wexford’s Pub. My scoring for aroma could be skewed do to me being congested.

Hop_Hedonist (178) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 13, 2013
Muted aroma - super smooth on the palate - super sweet - honeyed aftertaste - far too easy to drink - massive abv so could be a killer! But ’dead’ good!

hotstuff (3951) - Indiana, USA - NOV 9, 2013
Rated on 7-29-2009 (Bottle) This beer pours a medium sized fizzy ivory head that mostly diminishes, slightly hazy orange golden body, and spotty amounts of lacing. The Aroma is caramel malts, bitter, citrus, and earthy hops. The Taste is heavily bitter, caramel malts, citrus hops, and has a very long bitter dry finish. The Palate is tingly and this beer is medium bodied. Overall, this beer has a nice balance between the aroma and flavor, worthy trying, and a beer I would drink again.

juanenka (242) - valladolid, SPAIN - OCT 20, 2013
Botella. Color anaranjado con corona beige persistente. Aroma caramelo y lúpulo. En boca entra lupulada y las notas de resina aguantan hasta el final. Con caramelo en todo el paladar. De carbonatacion baja y alcohol bien integrado aunque no parezca que tiene 9 grados.

onceblind (3672) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 18, 2013
Clear slightly dark amber with a thin foamy head. Nose is strange, like roasted apricot, artisan crackers, and a wee bit of raisin. Flavor is boozy and malty with more caramel and apricot with a toasted grain backbone, finishing slightly hoppy bitter and more than a little boozy. Meh.

Kan ikke helt huske den men jeg kan dog huske den var rigtig god, fyldig, let maltsødme og så humlet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Earthy, alcohol, basement aromas, in that description it doesn’t sound good but to be honest its not a bad drop. A touch heavy on the alcohol taste but its a strong beer could be smother.
