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.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAR 26, 2008
Draft at The Sanctuary in Iowa City. Poured a dark orange-reddish color. The head was off white and dissipated quickly. I smelled sprucy/flowery hops, toffee, and candy. Medium bodied and sweet with mild to moderate hop bitterness that peaked at 4 out of 10. The flavor profile included the likes of cotton candy, caramel, toffee, and sprucy hops. There was also some alcohol, but it was fairly well concealed at 9.5%. I’m not the biggest fan of Dead Guy, and this one, perhaps not surprisingly, didn’t do a great deal for me either.

kmweaver (3206) - Petaluma, California, USA - MAR 26, 2008
Draft @ Frisco’s. Pours a bright, medium honey-orange color; minimal off-white head. Light aroma, showing candy sugar, basic caramel and dried oranges; kind of one-dimensional. Average carbonation. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: lots of dried oranges, caramel, dried fruits - follows the aroma; sugary sweet maltiness, with a touch of balancing citrus. A bit messy, with lots of orange; some alcohol poking through. Lengthy, sticky finish: oranges, citrus, and dried fruits; a bit of zestiness and bread.

on tap @ Brew Kettle, marked as Dead Guy XX presumed to be this... a copper color yields some hop’s more hops and nothing really but hops, atleast this is how it tasted ot me, serving temp was a bit warmer than i might have liked, tasted like a basic IPA with higher ABV.

Beerdedone (2494) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 25, 2008
Draft. Pours a deep dark amber with a small off-white head. Aroma was fairly mild with caramel, floral, light pine, and a hint of toffee. Flavor is caramel malts, citrus hops, pine, floral, and some notes of toffee with a moderate hop bitterness. Decent brew

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - MAR 21, 2008
Draught at Barley’s. Pours dark red-orange with off-white head. The aroma is lots of caramel with some biscuit and pine. The flavor is pine, grapefruit, typical American hops. Fairly bitter. The malts are caramel and biscuit with a blast of toast at the end, which accentuates the hop bitterness. Ok, but not really anything special.

Suttree (4908) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 21, 2008
On tap at Barley’s, Knoxville. Copper, with a nice white head. Aroma is rather on the sweet side, with caramel and toffee and brown sugar. Flavor is very hoppy, considering the aroma. Mostly grapefruity, with just a few notes of pine. Malt flavors are in the background. Once again, its fairly typical of the Rogue John’s Locker series.

brewblackhole (1588) - Muskego, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 21, 2008
On tap,aroma slightly hoppy and a hint of sweet caramel, taste was a thin candy toffee and caramel,again just a hint of the crystal hops,sweet slick finish, definitely not full bodied, thin for a bock,let alone a dopple, and by the way is this an ale or a bock? dissapointing

NachlamSie (2651) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 19, 2008
On tap. Pours a dark copper and has quite the head. I’m skeptical going in to this given my disdain for Dead Guy Ale, but a refreshing blast of grapefruity hops in the aroma give me hope. I pick up some biscuits and caramel as well. This is pretty decent after all with suggestions of brown sugar, stinging grapefruit, and toffee. My enthusiasm waned after a pint when more buttery flavors began to surface.

badlizard (5540) - Berkeley, California, USA - MAR 19, 2008
On tap at Stone. Caramel brown with almost no head. Thick semi sweet taste with a nice earthy backbone. Quite good.

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 17, 2008
Pours a very dark brown with a thick foamy beige head. Very roasty malt aroma with hints of chocolate, toffee, caramel and hops. Flavor very similar with lots of roasted coffee bean, chocolate malt, toffee and a dry bitter hop finish.
