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

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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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 it’s more malt-focused -- honey, caramel, even a hint of toast. Substantial bitterness settles in at the finish and balances the sugary malts. It’s drinkable, but lacks any special qualities that would require a second helping.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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!
