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.

joekfsu (138) - Boardman, Ohio, USA - SEP 19, 2008
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.

BigBeer45 (1371) - Michigan, USA - SEP 15, 2008
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.

Aroma of bread, alcohol and some citrus. Orange body with creamy, off-white head. Plenty of lacing left on the pint glass. Chewy body texture with some biscuit bread, dry orange peel flavor. Alcohol and moderate dryness left on palate. Good brew!

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.

HonkeyBra (3896) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - SEP 14, 2008
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.

stankenk (130) - Maplewood, Minnesota, USA - SEP 13, 2008
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.

joshwilfong (1200) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - SEP 13, 2008
reddish brown, mild head. flavor of crystal with the alcohol present throughout, adding nice depth and not being distracting. some hop bitterness and flavor. pretty good, more expansive than dead guy

AR (1000) - Georgia, USA - SEP 13, 2008
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.
