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.

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 (642) - 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 (3524) - 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.

bitbucket (2160) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - AUG 16, 2008
Red (but not ceramic) 750 bottle. Pours clear amber with a dense, thick off-white head. Sweet aroma of toffee and figs. Medium body, light carbonation. Taste of citrus, toffee, caramel, eventually wandering into pine. Earthy/floral bitter finish.

BOLTZ7555 (2927) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - AUG 15, 2008
Not as interesting as the bottle...the beer is similar to drinking a bottle of liquid caramel. Copper-colored brew with decent carbonation and solid eggshell head. Aroma is that of toffee, brown sugar, and cotton candy. Flavor is quite sweet but not sticky...quite palatable actually. There does appear to be a slight hoppiness that makes its way to palate, although resistantly. A bit thin. 9.5% hardly noticeable!!!

truebluehes (183) - Tipton, Iowa, USA - AUG 15, 2008
Bottle. Orangish pour with little head. Very smooth beer, much like the dead guy with a real nice bite.

Tried at the Bite of Oregon. Overall very good, not quite as good as I had anticipated. Poured to an orange-amber color with little head. I thought it’d be hoppier than it was, but it was very smooth. Well balanced. Notes of fruit; I kept thinking stone fruit of some kind; couldn’t quite put my finger on it. Glad I tried it.
