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.

my 700th beer!!!
pours a semi-hazy copper red with a small off-white head, good lacing.
smell of fruit, floral, some citrus, few hops, a little spice and some roastiness.
taste is watery at first then thickens up as it warms, grapefruit hops, malt, few sweet fruits, touch of caramel, ends with a very bitter aftertaste and slightly dry.

Rusty (1545) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - AUG 23, 2008
Spray Painted Red Bottle, not ceramic...SURPRISE! Pours a hazy brownish red with a nice soapy head. Aroma is hops, malt, caramel, yeast, bread. Flavor is earthy hops, caramel, yeast, bread, malt. Loads of hop bitterness is nicely balanced by the malt, almost has a bastard like barleywine-esque character to it. Good Brew. Also, I’m glad Rogue went this direction with the bottles for this beer because it’s getting ridiculous with their overpriced ceramic bottles.

iowaherkeye (2698) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - AUG 23, 2008
750mL bottle, 2008, from pepsican, thanks Andy! Clear dark amber with a 1 1/2 finger light beige head. Loads of caramel malts, some hot alcohol, and fresh baked bread (yeasty and, well--bready!). The flavor continues not to hide the alcohol, and adds a good amount of bitterness (5 out of 10) to combat the huge maltiness of the beer. Burps a bit of citrus. Moderate carbonation with a full body. Too much alcohol and not enough aroma hops--just bitterness. Glad I tried it--nothing to see here. . .

Bigmmartin (603) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - AUG 22, 2008
Bottle. Well I enjoyed the Dead Guy Ale so I definitely jumped at the chance at trying the Double version. Decent aroma of hops, similar to a pale ale, but not extremely strong. Flavor is more bitter than I expected, with a nice bitter finish. Not a great American Strong Ale but a excellent if if considered a Maibock.

12many (277) - Alaska, USA - AUG 21, 2008
Bottle from Bigmmartin. A clear amber with a decent head and average lacing. Aroma is mostly caramel with some floral hops. Flavor is sweet from a good amount of malt but also quite bitter. Smooth, clean aftertaste, and moderate carbonation. Good beer but not surprising or impressive.

dkoonce (911) - People’s Republic of Athens, Ohio, USA - AUG 21, 2008
On tap at the brewhouse in Newport. Copper, with a thin head. Actually smells a bit stale, with alcohol quite evident. Sweet, with a heavy body and a sting of alcohol. All together, still a quite drinkable beer.

cathcacr (643) - Oregon, USA - AUG 19, 2008
At the pub, but available only in bottles. Was pretty good, had a character that I’d describe as "Imperial Bock." It’s a lot like Dead Guy only with pronounced alcohol character and a rich sugary mouthfeel.

CanIHave4Beers (3584) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - AUG 18, 2008
On tap at El Bait shop in Des Moines. Really just a fantasic beer. The hops are just fantasic, and provide a remarkable bitterness that dominates much of the flavor of this beer. The head was fairly weak, but that’s the only real complaint. Aromas of sweet malt and tons of floral hops. Alcohol is very well hidden.

carruthm (1401) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 17, 2008
V - clear orange with a light lacy small white head.
A - caramel, brown sugar, hops, mild malts,
T - deep and complex with the same traces as in the aroma but in more detail
P - very smooth with just a touch of woody oak at the very tail end.

Naven (1000) - Poway, California, USA - AUG 17, 2008
A big, bold, harsh beer. Super malty, rich and very sweet. Way overdone. Way way way too much going on for me.
