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.

Heavy sweet malt aroma, Belgian-Ale type aroma. A fig type aroma if you will. Not very pungent, but enough to smell it. You cannot smell the hops that well in the aroma, but in the flavor, oh man, the bittering hop is nice. The malt flavor comes at first but the hops take over. The palate is okay, but well above average. The beer has a nice caramel/orange/brown color with decent head retention. Overall, a great beer with a nice balanceof malts and hops.

Enjoyed on tap at the Buckeye brew engine. A good bitterness, tasty stuff,average mouthfeel. A poetry of lacing.

20080922 750ml bottle from Spirits RB. Eleven bucks for this, but I couldn’t resist the red painted bottle. Similar in appearance to the regular dead guy, deep copper color with medium, lasting beige head and sticky lace. Aroma is a kick of Rogue, earthy, toffee, clean, light curacao, potpourri, some alcoholic heat. Body is not as full as I expected, and it suffers from a late punch of booze that competes with the malts, or at least distracts me from what might otherwise be a nice coating middle. The finish is indeed long and bitter, quite nice. Overall a bit on the bland side but the bitterness makes it interesting enough to work though the big bottle of a big beer.

Was not terribly impressed. I’ve started exploring the Rogues and figured I’d try this one but the bitter kick in the palate is more than I care for. Warm, hoppy flavor and a cool golden hue with a fluffy head. Aromas of wheat and spice but again, the finish is what did me in. Nice beer Rogue but I know you’ve done better.

On tap at Mahars. Pours an ugly, cloudy red with not a lot of head, aroma is somewhat sublte for a big beer. Flavor is hoppy and sweety, a really good balance, alcohol is well hidden too.

It’s been a long time since I’ve had a Rogue. I’ve long seen them as a bit of the player of brewing. Catchy names. Nice packaging. Taste never fully lives up to the hype. I went for this because it is a "special" release. See? The hype still works. Rogue champions all packaging. All in all, though, not bad at all. Malty. Creamy. Not an intense Strong Ale, but very tasty and hoppy. Worth a few dollars less than its 11 buck tag. But nice all around.

Pours a deep caramel color with a hefty light tan head. Aroma is very malty, with some grassy hops and alcohol. Flavor is also predominately malty, with some piney hops and the alcohol is once again noticeable. Has a nice full body and a good balance. An enjoyable beer.

<b>Taster - Washington Beer Commission Oktoberfest - Seattle, WA
</b> Aroma – Deep malt and high alcohol aroma with a strong hoppy nose.
Appearance – Dark Amber in color, clear with a light head.
Flavor – A very tasty strong ale with a good hops backing. Slight high alcohol taste.
Palate – Crisp Mouthfeel, nice texture with a dry finish.
Overall – A big beer that really has some great flavor. This was not packing so much punch that it hurts to drink. Good Beer.

UPDATED: SEP 20, 2008 750 ml. Clear, iced-tea color with a one-finger creamy head that coats the glass on the way out. Mild aroma of caramel and lemon-honey. Molasses, orange, and caramel front gives way to resin, wood and dry citrus. Medium body is soft and smooth, with a hop-dry finish and some alcohol warmth.
