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 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.

This is an attractive beer, pouring a medium amber color with a nice, totally retained off white colored head. Aroma is bready with caramel. Taste is predominately sweet with just a bit of bitterness in the finish. This is an amazingly easy drinking strong ale. A fellow could get in trouble drinking this. Good beer!

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.

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.

[2/13/15] Draught at Rogue Ales Public House in San Francisco. Nice clear amber. Sweet aroma with caramel and a bit of honey. Sweet flavor with caramel and alcohol. Medium-bodied.

AleRider78 (130) - - MAR 15, 2015
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!

On tap at Rogue, San Francisco. Pours golden color, small white head. Aroma is malty caramel, toffee, candied fruits. Flavor is similar. Really delicious candied dark fruits. Slightly bitter finish. Really nice.

OmegaX (1326) - Florida, USA - FEB 22, 2015
Bottle shared with others. I donít know, I just didnít care for this as much as the regular dead guy ale. Aroma is light toffee and caramel, hay notes, stale malt. Flavor is similar with a light grassy hop note. Sweet at first with a lightly bitter finish. Itís a decent brew but based on the price I would never repurchase this one.

750 ml bottle from STLWill- thanks again, Will! Opened in line at the Side Project Pulling Nails Blend #2 release, I know this one didnít give me much cred but I tend to bring home beers for Thanksgiving that arenít as sought after because my family doesnít care either way and is just excited to try new things. But we made it through some other stuff that day without getting to this. So this 2008 vintage is what I had to share. And itís a craft beer store staple that Iíd never had, somehow. Pours a muddy amber-brown with a tiny beige ring for a head. Blindfolded, Iíd have said "aged American strong ale," because this one had notes of cardboard, brown sugar, caramel, toast, and maybe some earth and tobacco. The body has thinned over the years but has some slight heft left, but not much carbonation. Not bad at all, really. Probably better fresh, but this was fine.

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.
