I lie this one but not as good as the John John one I had right before but still a good drink.

On tap at Rochester Tap Room. Clear orange / brown. Sort of had barley-esque character, but a bit better, as I hope for Strong. A bit more balance. Plenty of sweet though, and plenty of toffee. Sticky thick mouthfeel. Liked.

This is the XS version in the big dark bottle, vintaged 2013 that I have been recommended to put here. It’s a beautiful looking beer with its lush orange-amber colour and a thick cream coloured head. The aromas are of lush stonefruit predominantly: apricots and peaches galore with pears, nectarine and almonds. Thick and viscous with pinches of bitterness, I could have drunk more of this were it not for the fact it made me fall into blissful slumber.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a finger of head on a dark straw colored body.
The aroma is mild grain and honey.
The taste is caramel and honey sweetness with a mild dry bitterness to balance it out.
The texture is crisp but thicker.

I'm a fan of IPAs and I really sharp, sometimes bitter, high alcohol brews. This selection was very tasty.

XS Dead Guy: The nose is honey, toasted nuts, some booze. Clear burnt orange, fully fading head. Some sweetness, pretty well balanced. Medium-full bodied, a little hot.

"big doughey, dopplebock nose, with some added hops. this beer is classified generically as a strong ale...more like a slightly hoppy dopplebock. complex taste, especially as it warms, but something is just a touch off. Very good, but there are excellent db’s (or strong ales) out there for much less. Glad we tried it though. Pours with a nice frothy head. Mahagony color, and a complex palate."

Really good and really strong. Much much better than the original Dead Guy.

Tap. Pours a muddy amber color with a slight ring of cream colored head. Aroma of malt, grain, and some booze. Taste of malts, rye, and some booze.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Limited release in a 22oz bottle. Stronger than most ales. Slightly sweet, not too hopsy. Goes down good. Seems unfiltered or like homemade.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Rated from notes taken on 11 Jul 2011 -- This is a beer that Rogue doubled, and did it right. This is regular Dead Guy, but for big boys, maltier with a little more booziness.
