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.

Cloudy amber beer. Gorgeous palate - silky smooth abd soft with just enough froth in mouth. Top notch! Flavour is smooth malt with a hop sharpness that threatens but never attacks. Just a pleasing hint of hop bitterness in the finish. A deft and very well put together beer.

Bottle at R.F.D., Washington DC
Hazy amber color. It’ s a strong American Ale, with better flavor than aroma, powerful but not extremely interesting.
