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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.
