From Peadbody’s in Boone, Pretty darn delicious! Pours a hazy orange color with a white foamy head. Tastes a bit hoppy with a good taste of citrues and creamy finish. Smells of a good balance of hops and malts. Muy Buen!

Bottle from Boone, NC. Pours an unclear orange with a light orange head. Aroma is sweet with primary malt notes and light hops. The flavor is more hoppier than the aroma. Moslty malt with a clean bitter light citrus hop finish. Cool!

on tap from the horse brass pub in portland. pours a clear dark amber color with thin bubbly tan head. sweet caramel and floral citrus hops in the smell. citrus spice hops mixed well with roasted grains. seems like a crazy hopped barleywine. warm, but covers the alcohol well.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours an amber with an average sized off-white head. Nose is very light with brown sugar. Flavor has hints of hops up front that is soon swallowed up by the hugh malt backing of this ale. Very sweet and roast, with a good shot of warmth from the alcohol.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft... First Annual Treasure Coast Beer Festival 2008... Clear amber ale with a small, creamy, white head. Decent retention. The nose is a blend of caramel malt and citrusy, earthy hops. Full-bodied and astringent with lively carbonation. Sweet toffee up front, then heavy bitterness sets in. Lengthy, bitter, bone dry finish.

Bottled@SBWF2008. Amber colour, small beige head. Aroma is caramel, hops, nuts and some mild notes of grass. Very fudgeish hints too. Flavour is hops, alcohol, some caramel malts. Peaches and pineapple along with grass and nectar in the aftertaste. Also some mild alcohol sweetness is there in the aftertaste.

Shit, I thought I put in a rating for this beer.
Can I just call it a muddled mess of a beer with flavors all over the place and nothing integrated?
Yeah, the beer was as good as that last sentence.
Grapefruit, caramel, alcohol heat, sweet, but not cloying, some nuttiness.
I just can’t bother to put in much more about how incredibly average this beer was. Good flavors, separately, but poorly crafted.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle purchased at Central Market in Mill Creek. Pours a dark cloudy amber with not as much head as I would expect. Flavor: Very full-bodied, sweet malt with a nice hop kick at the finish. Unfortunately, I would love to have a bottle of their regular Dead Guy Ale right now so I could do a proper comparison.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml bottle from BevMo Mission Valley. Pours a medium copper color with a good size off white head with good lacing. Nose was just like dead guy with a bit more malt and booze to it. Flavor was again dead guy ish (heavy malt and hop bitterness) with a booze kick. Not overly impressed with this....kick ass bottle though!

Love the Dead Guy Ale, and this one is even better. Pours clear ruby red with an off-white head. Delicious Munich and crystal malt in the aroma with a healthy helping of hops. Creamy mouthfeel. Resin and pink grapefruit hops in the taste, with the tang of the crystal malt. It truly is an Imperial version of the Dead Guy.
