D2 (our nickname for Double Dead Guy) is a new reincarnation of Rogueís 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 ...) IBUís approx 50-60. 19.8 Plato Original Gravity, 4.9 Plato Terminal Gravity.

750ml from 2008, that poured a murky medium brown with an off white head and decent lacing. The aroma for is an upfront ash or tobacco smell followed by caramels and toffee, also some dark fruits on the end. The flavor was more the same just a bit more pronounced with a warm boozey finish. Over all for ad old as this is the flavor are still strong and warm and really good.

beer-yum (879) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 24, 2015
Restrained citrus/pine aroma in a cloudy Amber pour. Taste is amazingly laid back and gives no hint of the huge hit (strength wise) one is going to receive. Has to be close to my favourite Rogue brew.

Draft. Pours thick from the faucet in a mostly clear burnt orange hue, topped with a small but dense head of sandy tan. The aroma has similar fruity yeast esters to Dead Guy: red delicious apples, white raisin, orange blossom. A bit of honey maltiness as well. The flavor has a similar sweetness, but here itís more malt-focused -- honey, caramel, even a hint of toast. Substantial bitterness settles in at the finish and balances the sugary malts. Itís drinkable, but lacks any special qualities that would require a second helping.

721Lance (82) - Oceanside Ca, California, USA - APR 6, 2015
Better in my opinion than the standard dead guy...as good if not better than double bastard. Mouthful of complex malts and balanced hops of big citrus and earthy hops. Long lasting malty finish.

on tap @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Cloudy dark amber color, frothy beige head, puffy bands of lace. Taste is caramel malt that grows as it turns more semi-sweet, glides through the palate, growing bigger as it adds solid, balancing, hop bittering. Not terrific, but certainly solid enough.

AleRider78 (198) - - MAR 15, 2015
Pours a hazy, dark amber colour with a large, foamy, creamy head. Had alot of carbonation, very bubbly. Good lacing. Strong, sweet flavours along the lines of toffee and caramel. Malts are evident in the flavour as well as aroma. notes of spices in the taste and in the finish. Smell a tiny bit of the alcohol and maybe some breads. More hoppy than malty. Very good for high abv!

On tap at Rogue, San Francisco. Pours golden color, small white head. Aroma is malty caramel, toffee, candied fruits. Flavor is similar. Really delicious candied dark fruits. Slightly bitter finish. Really nice.
