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 Rogues 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 ...) IBUs approx 50-60. 19.8 Plato Original Gravity, 4.9 Plato Terminal Gravity.

Gluepot (593) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 17, 2015
Nose features big roasted malts with caramel, ripe dark berries, biscuit malt and alcohol. Rich copper colour with a well laced fluffy tan head. This is a beast of a beer. Rich roasted malt, toffee, fruity hops underneath , almonds and dark berries. The body texture is thick and rich. All elements are well integrated. A gem of an East Coast Imperial. None better.

2009. General ale smell with some hops. Taste is the same with a bit of malt. High carbonation, medium body, and mild foam.

JohnGalt1 (1721) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 28, 2015
Malty aroma with spicy and citrus hops in the background and quite a bit of fruity yeastiness. Palate begins with a big bracing bitterness... smooth maltiness and a little bit of toasted bread.. citric hops and a little bit of spice but the hop flavors are more in the background. It says 72 IBUs and I believe it... bitterness is a little out of whack but gets better as it warms and the malts start showing up more... subtle caramel and more toasted malt character... Definite but not bad alcohol and a lingering bitter and yeasty finish. Body is not as thick as I would have expected.. and Im okay with that.. carbonation is fairly smooth... drinkability is much better as it warms.

Sigmund (7232) - Tau, NORWAY - OCT 23, 2015
Stoneware swingtop bottle, as Rogue XS Dead Guy Ale, from Costco, Sacramento. The ordinary Dead Guy Ale is not a favourite of mine, but this one is much better. Mahogany colour. The aroma is okay, but not outstanding. The flavour is excellent, malty and vinous with notes of toffee and caramel, also decent hops. Pleasant warming mouthfeel.

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 (1143) - - 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 (2686) - 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 (2443) - 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.
