Copper body with a moderate ecru head. Caramel, pine hops, citrus hops, toffee, grilled banana evident in the nose. Hops come through in the taste but tempered by a malty sweetness. Decent.

I love this beer! Double Dead Guy Ale is amaing! The look is a beautiful amber/orange color. Nice off white head. Looks thick and full bodied. The smell is of malty sweetness, hoppy, grapefruit hop notes, citrusy/fruity and a hint of floral/pine hop. The taste...oh...my...god! This is amazing! Alcohol is present, hoppy and sweet maltyness to it. Hop taste is just like the smell.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
tap. Pours deep amber/copper with a medium tan head. Aroma and taste of pine/wet hops and sweet malts with alchohol burn in the end. Not sure if it is the sweet malts or the extra hop juice, but like the flying dog double dog, this is just a bit too cloying for my taste. Good thing the pine taste which I love saved it for me.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
dark red with light tan head. Sweet dark fruits, malty undertones, with a good added kick from the hops. Very full bodied and round beer. Pairs well with cream sauce italian food, while the hops help to cut thru the cream without over powering the dish. dark enough beer for a winter day, but hoppy and clean tasting enough for a hot summer day.

On tap. The body was dark gold with a khaki head. The aroma was sweet with lots of raisins and cinnamon. There was also bread crust with a hint of grapefruit. The taste was sweet pear core with some spicy cinnamon. There was a nasty sweet, almost honey like finish. Certainly not my thing, but my friends like it.

On tap at Capital Ale House - Downtown. Clear deep copper body with a large creamy tan head with good retention. Sweet caramel and light toasty aroma with a huge hop kick. Sweet caramel, somewhat sugary flavor with lots of american hops. Still decidedly malt accentuated. Medium body with moderately high carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
