Poured into a standard 16 oz. pint glass, which seems to be the right vessel given that the Dead Guy pint glass is the same.
A - Pours a hazy orange amber (think apple cider) with just about a half finger of light tan head. Very sticky lacing on this one but the head doesn't linger very long.
S - Sweet and malty with light notes of apricot and even ginger. Bready and citrusy for the most part.
T - Initially sweet with lots of apricot and tangerine. There is a mild hop profile in the middle that consists of grassy, earthy hops and citrus hops, but not too overpowering. Finishes dry with nutty flavors and hints of honey and ginger. Such a unique tasting brew that is well balanced and genuinely interesting, I have never had anything else quite like it.
M - Chewy and slightly sticky. The carbonation could be kicked up a bit but overall it goes down super smooth.
O - A very distinct and interesting brew that truly has its own character. Slightly sweet and slightly hoppy, there are flavors here for everyone. Well worth a try but it can get expensive (I see it go anywhere from $12-16 a six pack in the northeast). I did not enjoy the Double Dead Guy in the bottle or on tap however, it was just far too sweet and boozy. The regular version has just the right flavors in the right amount for my taste.
