Pours slightly cloudy orange amber with quickly disappearing head. Aroma is flowery and metallic. Sweet, but with enough hops that carry throughout. Somewhat metallic. Average body. virtualshock (2) - USA - FEB 10, 2006 does not count
pours thick with a small diminishing head,
color is a deep beautiful orangish-brown
smells heavily of honey and sweetness, mouthfeel is a little chewy and has a nice balancing hoppiness GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - FEB 10, 2006
A beautiful, slightly burnt, golden honey color. Well rounded flavors on the malty side with a slight hop and some woodsy flavors. Great ballance with a nice long finish. Not much of a head when poured, I like that. Very enjoyable indeed. Highly recommended. lordeche (479) - Quincy, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 7, 2006
Pours a coppery amber color with little carbonation and very little head. Hearty palate, though not too thick. A little hoppiness complements the flavors of honey and caramel. Overall, an enjoyable beer. IrishBoy (4254) - Bakersfield, California, USA - FEB 5, 2006
Medium amber with thick beige head and caramel and a hint of chocolate aroma; light chocolate flavor, not any hint of molasses.

On tap. Deep red amber color with a short-lived head. Somewhat citrusy malt flavors, and toffee, caramel. Thick mouthfeel, but still not as intensely bready as German bocks. Added hoppiness is interesting, too. Strange for a bock, but as a new take, pretty successful. GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - JAN 31, 2006
You really cannot go wrong with anything Rogue puts out. It’s nice to have a brewery that routinely goes the extra mile to make something beer nerds can rely on all the time. Dead Guy ale is really something to behold. Incredible colors in the glass, caramel in the nose and honey on the tongue (along with hops and malts..;^) Outstanding." stoutchap (424) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 30, 2006
Pretty Good. Poured a hazy amber with a decent off-white head and some lacing. A sweet, slightly hopped nose. Caramel, and honey up front, with a light hop finish. A little more substantial palate than I thought it would have. Again, pretty good. pstorvik (60) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 30, 2006
12 oz bottle. Poured with little quickly disappearing head and pleasant hops/malt aroma with slightly odd and somewhat cloudy orangish dark amber coloring. Excellent malt flavor with warming hop bitterness. Very well balanced. My first Rogue brew - if they’re all this good I’m sold. Incidentally I call the 6.6% ABVinto question as this beer is sold in beer stores and better corner markets in TN and therefore must be 6% or less. morrdt (715) - Jacksonville, Florida, USA - JAN 30, 2006
Bottle. Pours a cloudy amber orange with virtually no head. Surprisingly clean drinking with no aftertaste. I was expecting some kind of kick to it after the sip, but the non existence of an aftertaste caught me off guard. A very filling beer too.
