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 Rogueís 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 ...) IBUís approx 50-60. 19.8 Plato Original Gravity, 4.9 Plato Terminal Gravity.

KingpinIPA (841) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 20, 2008
Got this one for a steal for only $3.99. Original price was 9.99. Dark, golden reddish brown color. Smell of hops, caramel, spice, fruit, malt, bread, nuts, alcohol and brown sugar. Tastes the same and it was a nice go to sleep beer.

willisread (1091) - Tokyo, JAPAN - OCT 3, 2015
Under the name Dead Guy XS (2015 version at 8.1% abv) at Watering Hole on tap. Clear copper with a small off-white head that lingers. Brown sugar, toffee, light oak on the nose. Lots of caramel and malt flavors with some booze. The body seems way too thin. Woody. Prefer the regular.

sulawang (743) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 14, 2015
Visual: Cellared for 2 years (2013), gorgeous painted black ceramic bottle with a black bailer-top. Pours translucent ruby red with barely any head, a thin hazy micro layer, a few micro tightly knit micro streams here and there. Nose: malty sweet caramel, lightly toasted, hints of bourbon. (lvl-6)-pungency Attack: slick-thick creamy, dense maltiness, background hoppy bitter, bourbon notes Mid-palate: full-bodied, (lvl-5)-sweetness, alcohol detection, (main) medium roast barley malt, toasted caramel, orange citrus Finish: bitter generic citrus hopped, off-dry malty finish. Summary: Love the ceramic bottle. Big body with lots of toasted caramel malt and a citrus hop to balance it out. Kind of straightforward after a glass, but enjoyable.

radiomgb (2543) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 7, 2015
750ml bottle from the LCBO in Toronto, Ontario. Deep copper in colour with a thin but long lasting off-white head, excellent lacing. The aroma is of caramel, fruit, hops and light alcohol. The flavour is of sweet malts, caramel, fruity hops, light alcohol, some pepper. Sweet mouthfeel, medium body, moderate carbonation. Finishes long, sweet, warming. Pretty good stuff, a nice imperial Dead Guy.

tmongoose (1787) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 27, 2015
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.

beer-yum (940) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 24, 2015
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.

PartyFowle (706) - - APR 13, 2015
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.

721Lance (82) - Oceanside Ca, California, USA - APR 6, 2015
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.

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.
