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.

ClassyBeagle (319) - USA - FEB 2, 2014
FROM NOTES: November 8, 2013. A: Heavy bready malt aroma and a nice caramel sweetness. Mixed with these are lighter aromas of a floral and herbal nature as well as a lighter citrus hop smell. Faint fig notes. A: Pours a hazy orange-red almost sunrise-like color with almost no head. T: Follows the nose, although not quite as sweet. Nice and malty with subdued spices and fruits with a nice hop bitterness to round everything off. Alcohol is well hidden. M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. O: Overall, a good heavy almost barley-wine like and bitter brew. If you like Dead Guy, you’ll undoubtedly like Double Dead Guy

hfmejias (696) - Dover, Delaware, USA - JAN 5, 2014
22 Oz. Bottle. Reddish amber with small head, Aroma is big malts and hops. This is my opinion is a hoppier (if that’s a word) version of their regular Dead Guy Ale; Never the less a very nice beer.

dansac (93) - Loa Angeles, Alabama, USA - JAN 2, 2014
So average its just painful to score. Big malts, hops, medium to full bodied, dark red, strong carbonation, some dark fruit. Nothing really interesting.

750 ml bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Moderate gusher upon opening. Pours hazy deep orange copper color with a 2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of big raisin, pear, apple, caramel, toast, toffee, brown sugar, biscuit, nuttiness, herbal, floral, light pepper, and toasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malt and fruity yeast notes; with good strength. Taste of big raisin, pear, apple, caramel, toast, toffee, brown sugar, biscuit, nuttiness, light pepper, floral, herbal, and toasted earthiness. No bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of raisin, pear, apple, caramel, toast, toffee, brown sugar, biscuit, nuttiness, light pepper, herbal, and toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice balance and complexity of dark/toasty malt and fruity yeast ester flavors; with big robustness and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a moderately creamy and slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice strong ale. All around good balance, robustness, and complexity of dark/bready/nutty malt and fruity yeast flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

UPDATED: JUN 6, 2014 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 (243) - 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 (4069) - 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 (244) - 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.
