3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

Very, very good. Delicious, thick and creamy ale. A touch of pine adds character. A great find.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
650 ml bottle from Bev4less. Pours a translucent copper color with a medium off-white head that lasts only a short while and leaves good lacing. The aroma is light with caramel malts. The flavor is sweet malts and some biter piney hops. The mouthfeel is full. The finish is long and biter. Overall: I was rather underwhelmed by this brew, nothing objectionable, but nothing really distinguishing either. I’ll pass in the future.

growler thanks to my friend Tricia- pours orangish amber with a quickly dissipating head- apply/ester aroma- with accompanying husk flavors and strong bitterness. Some sweetness in there as well, but mostly up front.- best done in moderation.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is a mild sweet malt scent with some nice hop tones. Color is deep orange amber with light carbonation and a thin tight head. Taste is hoppy, rich and bitter. Starting with a medium body it goes down crisp with a rich feel. Finish comes in with a floral soapy flavor then a candy like taste comes in followed by a mellow bitterness. After taste is bright with more bitterness and the floral taste continuing on. This is an interesting brew and although the hops come out with a soapy taste its not bad and is better then all of the brews out there that have way too much of a grapefruit taste in them.

Pricey 750 painted red. Bought today at Bevmo. Pours orange with a 1 finger tan head. Nose is sweet with weird notes. Taste is somewhat more hoppy with some malty notes. This was not work the $$ its got some good taste but I prefer dead guy to double dead guy.

Red bomber poured a clear copper with a small lasting light amber head. Aromas of carmel, toasted malt and light spice. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of carmel, toasted malt, earthiness and light pine with a smooth lightly warming lingering malty finish.
