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.

Cybercat (3222) - Georgia, USA - OCT 19, 2008
Pours a nice dark honey-golden, clear with fine bubbles, and a very thick off-white and fairly persistent head. Aroma is strong and malty with undertones of caramel and hops. Flavor is surprisingly hoppy, with a good balance of maltiness and a sweet undertone - there is a fair amount of bitterness, but it is not overwhelming. Texture is smooth and edgy and very pleasing. Overall, another winner from Rogue.

SHANER4 (470) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 20, 2008
26 oz. bottle - Poured pale amber with nice medium head, great lacing on glass. First off I am a huge fan of Dead Guy and when I saw DDG I did not hesitate. Aroma is sweet like cotton candy, similar to DG but sweeter. Taste is so smooth and well balanced. I thought I died and gone to beer heaven. Rogue is my favorite brewer and DDG is their finest creation !!!!

I love this beer! Double Dead Guy Ale is amaing! The look is a beautiful amber/orange color. Nice off white head. Looks thick and full bodied. The smell is of malty sweetness, hoppy, grapefruit hop notes, citrusy/fruity and a hint of floral/pine hop. The taste...oh...my...god! This is amazing! Alcohol is present, hoppy and sweet maltyness to it. Hop taste is just like the smell.

A great high alcohol beer. Very similar to the Dead Guy Ale this beer is easy to drink. Pours a nice redish copper color with small head that sticks to the glass. Has a very well balanced flavor without the alcohol flavor one might expect from a 9% beer.

Absolutely fantastic, big, caramelly and soothing. Just finished my 750ml bottle after a 3 hour surf at Cottesloe Beach in Perth WA air temp 38c. Kept it in the freezer after I opened it and snuck back to top up my glass up without telling anyone. Onlike wines, whisky or other enjoyable sustances I have absolutley no intensions of sharing.

Yummy! Cheers to Rogue for using my favorite hops - Cascade for the boil. A richer, bit denser version of the classic favorite Dead Guy. Plenty of familarity for Dead Guy fans, but again more rich, more toasted malt flavor. Very enjoyable, very much recommended.

Wombata (375) - Kobe, JAPAN - SEP 20, 2009
On tap at Portland Intl airport. Appearance: Aroma: port-like, dried fruit--prunes, raisons, possibly mango-- intense deep roasted malt Flavor: Similar to the aromas. Restrained hops may slightly reign in the huge malt flavors--roasted caramel malt, prune, ripe orange notes, roasted milk chocolate. Comments: Very very big with complex aromas and malt flavors that evolve in the glass. A few sips can go a long way, and gave me a very pleasant, mellow buzz to end my session. This just can’t be compared to a standard beer; better to think of a young, ageable port. The complexity and changing flavors reminded me of the one (and probably only) time that I got to try Sam Adam’s Utopia. It helps to sip and enjoy this slowly over 30 to 60 minutes and all will be right with the world.

Sask89 (410) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - DEC 9, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2010 2009 Label. Pours a beautiful golden colour with minimal head. The aroma is caramel and a little fruity and has hints of hops. The taste is quite similar and the hops are certainly evident. This is strong in taste and is an excellent bitter beer, the finish to this beer was also long and very good. I would say to those who are willing to pay for it they will remember it.
