3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 mL bottle. Pours a clear deep amber with 3 cm of tan foamy mostly diminishing head. Aroma of caramel, yeast, and hops. Initial flavor of sweet caramel malt. Flavor becomes more balanced as the citrus hops show up on the back end. Aftertaste is fairly bitter and long lasting. Light carbonation, light lacing, light to medium body, and definite alcohol presence especially as it warms. Overall another well done beer by Rogue and worth a try.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2008 Pours a clear red-amber copper with some effervescence, produced a nice foamy off-white head, aroma of piney and citrus hops when the cap was popped, a big aroma of caramel sweetness and light fruit, yeast, there is a cake and honey sweetness aroma in the background, flavors of sweet caramel and malt, some flavors of roasted and toasted malt, has a medium or more hop bitterness that persists after the finish, I felt a little warmth from the alcohol but it is hidden pretty well, mouth feel is more then medium, feels creamy on the palate (tulip glass), this was ok but not exciting like some of the other American Strong Ales, I was hoping this would have a lot to offer but falls short of being a great drink.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle. Currently there are 33 beers that come up with a search for "dead" but this is the only one for "double dead". When I first saw Dead Guy in Calgary it was the same price as other craft beers. Now that it has reentered the province it is pushing $21 for a 6-pack. Still very cool to find this beer even at $11. I like the red bottle and double skull logo. Dark thick amber liquid. Good starting head and a lasting thin skiff. Aroma of hops, peach and apricot with a hint of alcohol. Makes me think both of a Maibock and almost a Barley Wine. Flavour is a darker mix of fruit and alcohol than the nose implies. Almost liqueur-like. It is indeed a long finish of alcohol and wood. Somewhat mouth drying. Almost like someone added a dash of chocolate to a high ABV Maibock. Lots of biscuit, dried apricot and alcohol.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a strange hazy copper with a big creamy head. Aroma is a tad chemical, with strong citrus hops, pine, and a touch of booze. Sweet caramel malt and some spice, balanced by very bitter finish. Mouthfeel is smooth though surprisingly thin. Not bad, though. Good ale.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a dark copper color under a huge creamy yellowish head. The nose is strong citrus hops, and carmel malts. It has a slight bubble gum nose. It has a very light mouth feel filled with flavor. It comes across the palate as sweet and malty; It has a fine light bitterness for a finsh to a very balanced fullfilling brew.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is a nice hearty beer with an amber pour. The beer starts with a hop flavor coming forth and then the maltiness quicky comes to the forthfront and is also prevalant t in a lingering aftertaste.
