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.

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

StefanSD (2218) - Lakeside, California, USA - SEP 29, 2008
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.

hopson (635) - Williamsville, New York, USA - SEP 29, 2008
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.

RSRIZZO (1899) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 29, 2008
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.

WeeHeavySD (3361) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 29, 2008
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.

Ratman197 (11252) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - SEP 28, 2008
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.

MartinT (8550) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 28, 2008
UPDATED: APR 11, 2010 My Bottom Line:
Biscuity cereals and their honeyed companion sweetness shower in coniferous hop resins in this slick and stern American Strong Ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam circles the hazy amber.
-The hoppiness is also quite orangey, an impression emboldened by the honeyed malt sweetness.
-Alcohol is perceptible throughout.
-The energetic, tiny bubbles succeed in alleviating most of the beer’s heaviness.
-Even though the flavor profile is intense, it remains rather balanced.
-That resinous hoppiness provides lasting bitterness.
-This is nothing really special, but it remains a nice sipping experience throughout.

wxman (1575) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - SEP 28, 2008
On draft, it taps a slightly cloudy orangish-brown with not much of a head. Taste is somewhat fruity, along with malty caramel and hoppy bitterness. Smooth, and quite good considering the ABV. It’ll sneak up on you.

milewide (1732) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - SEP 28, 2008
Solid body, with right balance between malt sweetness and hop bitterness. Medium head. Orange amber color.

ATLBeerDog (280) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 28, 2008
Pours a fairly bright orange that is a tad cloudy with a small unimpressive mostly white head that quickly dissipates. Smells of citusy hops and fruits dominate. First sip is creamy with tangy hops bitterness. A nice malt backbone compliments well. The finish is tasty and bitter with the 9% ABV somewhat hidden. This brew is slightly under carbonated. Not bad but but worth $10/750ml
