3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
FROM NOTES: November 8, 2013.
A: Heavy bready malt aroma and a nice caramel sweetness. Mixed with these are lighter aromas of a floral and herbal nature as well as a lighter citrus hop smell. Faint fig notes.
A: Pours a hazy orange-red almost sunrise-like color with almost no head.
T: Follows the nose, although not quite as sweet. Nice and malty with subdued spices and fruits with a nice hop bitterness to round everything off. Alcohol is well hidden.
M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
O: Overall, a good heavy almost barley-wine like and bitter brew. If you like Dead Guy, you’ll undoubtedly like Double Dead Guy

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a muddy amber color with a good sized head. Aroma is thick malt, bread, rye, raisins, lots a caramel, toffee, and a slight licorice. Taste is sweeter than the aroma. Big sweet malts, bread, no rye that the nose had, thin caramel, lots of raisin and other stone fruit, some plum, and licorice again at the finish. Very drinkable for the big notes in it, very interesting, a bit vegetal almost for an American Strong. Definitely a good beer, would recommend it to those wanting a surprise when rating.

Tapp Ölrepubliken - doftar smörkola, humle och anis. Silkeslen i munnen kraftig maltsmak med en värme från alkoholen.

XS 2013. Swing top ceramic bottle (well flash!). Sticker said imported to NZ Oct 2013 (for DoD?) Looking, smelling, tasting great. For me the malts were the stand out - a style the NZ beers tend to stay away from. Complex malts - caramel being the most obvious but hints of all manner of things banana bread, vanilla, chocolate, and a long lasting after taste. Hops present but subtle. The alcohol not obvious either.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
2013 vintage. Unclear dark amber with a decent sized soapy white head. Smells like extra strength dead guy. Imperial maibock is a better description than American strong ale. Aroma is Malty. Caramel. Bready. Flavor much the same. Medium body. Mild bitterness. Some spiciness. Alcohol hidden well. Dry bread crusty finish. A nice enjoyable ’big’ maibock.

Pours a dull, cloudy honey-amber color with and off-white, nearly nitro head. Creamy pull candy and ripe fruit nose. More than full, but not quite thick. Pull candy, wood, light smoke, and ripe fruit sweetness and bitterness.

why did I just take a huge bite out of a PB and J right before rating this beer?
growler into Le Duvel - nose is fruity booze of the spirits kind. Sip adds citrus/grapefruit kick in the teeth. Apparent malty backbone. ABV is well hidden.

Pretty similar to the standard dead guy, to be honest. Good variety of floral hop notes. Could see some great food pairings for this one.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Taster on tap at Ei8ht Ball. Completely clear copper red orange color. Thin ring of off-white head. Couple loose reachs of lace. Really interesting nose. Smell is like straight-up banana bread, right out of the oven. Wasn’t expecting that. In the flavor, some spicier malts come out; a bit of caramel. Bigger body, lightly slick. Smooth, kind of crisp, light carbonation. Moderate sweet taste, moderate bitter, just a very light mild bite at the end. Solid, interesting american strong. Good bigger spicy hop character to it, and good balance with the big, mildly cake-like sweet bready malt.
