Reviewing a 650ml Dead Guy Ale bill as a 7%abv.
My liquor stores recently started carrying these and hope many more to come. But American microbrew's are rare enough in this area to make this is a special nostalgic tasting. As a vegan though I really don't give a shit what animal goes best with this beer.
A: Two thick fingers of head with medium-large bubbles. Looks quite carbonated from a not so long pour. A deep amber color, quite impressed by its majestic hue of sunset.
S: Great aroma. It smells like a bock, a bit lighter though. Maltiness for sure, but cant locate the malt as being necessarily specific to the style. A hint of cookies.
T: Excellent! Its not as dense as most bocks but provides a manageable thickness. Has a very nice malt flavor but not enough to be heavy. A quenching bitterness that is also not overpowering for the style.
M: A moderate fizzy feeling with a hint of alcohol in the aftertaste that surfaces.
D: Definitely drinkable. The price makes it a bit out of reach in my market, but as a tall, this is a very refreshing yet strong ale which I have come back to.
