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.

The bomber was a wonderful blood red in color, but the beer thankfully looked like a normal Dopplebock. The body was clear orange, and formed a two finger thick foamy head quite rapidly. The smell was quite malty, which was a departure from a typical Rogue beer laden with hops. The hops were detectable as a floral and spicy smell, but it melded quite well with the malt. The taste was where this beer really shined. The sweet and caramelized malts were here as they are in any Dopplebock, but they were accompanied by a significant hop bitterness and a resulting spicy and dry finish. While this was a departure from the spirit of the style, it was a welcome change. The beer did suffer a bit on the palette from the high hopping rates, as this did not glide down in a soft manner, and presented a bit of an edgy mouthfeel. I liked it well enough to get it downed quite rapidly.

vyvvy (4080) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - SEP 27, 2008
Pours orange copper with a minimal white head. The aroma comes across has a typical sweet malt bomb ADA with some earthy hops and alcohol. Medium body that is about like any other of this style. The taste is a disaster, just a complete mess. Overly sweet malt, taste is a bit watery, alcohol beats you over the head and the finish is lots of alcohol burn. This was incredibly disappointing.

doubleo (1433) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 27, 2008
Bottle. Pours clearish amber with a thin, crisp white head. Smells malty with some booze. Tastes spicy malty and hoppy with lots of booze. NIcely balanced agressive hop and malt profile. I like this beer but it’ll probably taste like ass in a year or so when the hops are gone. Medium body, good carbonation.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 26, 2008
(Bottle 75 cl) Clear deep amber golden with a tall and lively dense head with good retention and some lacing. Burned caramel in the nose as well as some alcohol. Quite full-bodied with notes of burned caramel, nuts and plenty of roasted malt. Rather bitter finish with plenty of alcohol. 180908

22 oz bomber covered with red paint. Well, at least we know with this experiment that Double Dead Guy will not suffer from exposure to light. Extremely sweet aroma of caramel. Not a lot of hops detected in the aroma, hopefully they are there or I fear this could become sickly sweet. Luckily, there are some grapefruit citrus hops which cut some of the sweetness. Light astringency, and the flavor is relatively harmless, yet there is nothing that sticks out or excites me all that much. A little bland compared to many of its ilk. Paying $9 for this is not worth it. That said, it is not cloying which I originally feared.

750 ml bottle-pours a foamy off white head and copper color. Aroma is earthy/spice hops, some medium malt. Taste is earthy/spice hops, some medium malt-molasses, alcohol. To after taste before bitter hits. Thanks JWC215 for sharing.

Ungstrup (29665) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 25, 2008
Bottled at Stockholm Beer Festival 2008. A dark amber beer with a lazing orangey head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of malt, caramel, and hops. The flavor is sweet matly wtih notes fo caramel, leading to a dry alcoholic finish.

CheersMate (1312) - Fremont (Seattle), Washington, USA - SEP 23, 2008
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.
