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.

750 ml sleek red bottle. Pours amber with a thick head, lively carbonationn. First whiff and you can instantly detect sweet malts with some floral notes. Flavor is a bit light up front but does not dissapointed on the back end. Mild spices with a lingerinng bitterness from the hops. Citrus and malts dominate the flavor. Frankly, I was expecting something better.

UPDATED: NOV 2, 2012 Draft at Jerry’s. Hazy copper with good, creamy beige head / Sweet, rich nose of sour malt, dark fruit, and caramel / Medium to full body, a touch watery, sweet and somewhat syrupy, smooth, with some hop balance and lightly bitter and hot finish / Winey flavors of caramel, nut, grape, and oak / A little thin and hot, but still very nice.

imadeadguy (378) - back in NJ!, New Jersey, USA - AUG 27, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2008 750 Ceramic? Pour is amber with off white frothy head. Aromas of piney hops and sweet malt. Flavor is hops upfront and not too much on the back end, The finish is the only thing wrong with this beer. Nothing is there and it’s kinda bland. Drinks like an IPA and its fairly good. Try this one if you can but nothing to search for.

Poured a golden color with a thin white head from the tap. Aroma was hoppy and grassy with slight hints of citrus and pine coming through. The taste was also hoppy, but it surprised me with a caramel malty flavor as it went down. This is a great everyday beer.

Capa (2425) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - AUG 25, 2008
Draught at Chappy’s. Nice herbal/floral/citrus hops in the aroma. Caramel malts, floral and citrus hops, and some alcohol on the finish. I really enjoyed this brew, though it may not be all that "special."

Nice cream colored head sits atop a golden poured beer. Hoppy aroma. Smooth malt flavor with hops coming through and finishing bitter.

Meadowswine (3) - Farmington Hills, Michigan, USA - AUG 23, 2008 does not count
The bottle, head, color, all very impressive. Very excited to try this rare offering. The flavor was ok with a decent amount of hops without being over-done. The rest was a little awkward. Out of wack flavors of viscous sugar and too much alcohol. Rogue’s attempt to make a big beer resulted in a big mess. Sorry Rogue.

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.

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. . .
