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.

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.

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.

Quite a strong hop flavour, pretty smooth, pours a cloudy brown. Not my favourite type of beer but not bad.

Lilja (1585) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 10, 2013
Drucken på fat. Smak och doft av humle, malt, torkad frukt, karamell, brunt socker, med toner av lönnsirap och trä. Krämig, rund och len, frisk med god beska som avrundar det hela.

Aftertaste is phenomenal. Smells like a chocolate factory. Overall quite a good beer, and a good presentation for Rogue

michaelinwa (590) - Bothell, Washington, USA - SEP 1, 2013
Bottle from the brewery, and from memory. Golden color, light malt aroma, moderate head. Love the standard version of this beer, and like that everything is ramped up a bit with this version. One their best. Enjoyable.

Idiosynkrasie (3734) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - AUG 31, 2013
750ml bottle. Cloudy amber colour with average, creamy, half-way lasting, moderately lacing, off-white head. Aroma has notes of toffee and caramel. Taste is malty, hints of toffee, caramel, a touch of nougat and nuts, bitter hoppy overtones. Surely not a bad beer, but I simply don’t like this combination of malty toffee-"ness" and hoppy bitterness, as is present in some Barley Wines too. Sorry.
