4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
One beer I always keep stocked by the case is Rogueís Dead Guy Ale. Along with Troegs Trogenator, itís an extremely flavorful moderate abv beer with a cheap enough price tag to serve by the bucket. So I had very high expectations for the Double Dead Guy Ale.
Short story - it delivers. Itís just like the dead guy ale, but more potent. Everything but the sweetness is taken up a notch. Itís beautifully bitter, laced with candied alcohol flavors and smells like a holiday. I canít defend the price increase over the regular dead guy ale, but this beer is sure to find a regular rotation in my quaffing ensemble.

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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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!

Bottle shared with others. I donít know, I just didnít care for this as much as the regular dead guy ale. Aroma is light toffee and caramel, hay notes, stale malt. Flavor is similar with a light grassy hop note. Sweet at first with a lightly bitter finish. Itís a decent brew but based on the price I would never repurchase this one.
