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 @GarricksHeadPub. Red/orange body with frothy tan head. Caramel, grainy malt, food colouring, hazelnut, honey, mixed fruit. Rich and dessert-like. Strong alcohol burn with a big, bitter finish. Not bad.

bhiner41 (177) - La Grange, Illinois, USA - JUN 14, 2013
Taste like Oakes dead guy. Meaning the finish is a little drier and there is almost a tannin taste. Definitely sweet and malty up front. Smells like an old bar or fraternity basement after a party, musty with a hint of malt and hops. Great beer. ---bhiner41 Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

junon (388) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - JUN 14, 2013
Hops not over powering. Full body mouth feel. Tiny bit of sweet to marry with the bitter. Well crafted beer.

Evolutionary (252) - Ohio, USA - JUN 7, 2013
Tap at rusty bucket. Thick head that lingers and musty nose. Toffee an sweetness are a bit much but it's balanced. Not a great thirst quencher since its so sweet. Not doubly good. ---Rated via my mouth

maxwelldeux (3070) - Everett, Washington, USA - JUN 5, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear darker amber color with a moderate off-white head on it. Nose is definitely more malt forward on this, with some subtle caramel tones coming through. Taste is fairly strong with some strong toasting (almost burnt) elements coming through. Not bad, but not my sort of thing.

dresden (730) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - MAY 10, 2013
Clear copper with an inch of white head. Aroma is caramel and bread. Taste is heavily bread yeast with very sweet caramel malt and a kick of booze. Not bad.

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 10, 2013
2009 Vintage A - Hazy copper amber. 2 fingers of tan head that clings to the side of the glass. S - Loads of fruity malt, plums, red grapes, doughy yeast, sweet oranges, maple syrup, oak wood. T - Sweet toasted toffee malt, caramelized brown sugar, soft buttery flavor, fruity, woody hop resin coats the tongue. M - Viscous, creamy carbonation, very nice texture. This has aged very well. The hops are still present and really help compliment the finish. Very smooth flavors and great mouthfeel. Serving type: bottle 07-25-2011

kaser (2103) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 6, 2013
Orange red pour from tap in at Thomas at pie whole. Very Carmel and smooth taste to it. Not much aroma. Good but only a little at a time

Gription79 (2157) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Poured from a 750ml, 2008 bottle. The aroma is dominated by sweet alcohol and malts. The flavor is fruity alcohol, toffee, chocolate, oxidation. There aware noticeable signs of oxidation, but still a tasty beer.
