Well..I Really did not want to like this Beer,Basically Because so many of my Friends have been Raving about it, to the point I was sick of hearing how Awesome it is,and though I love my Friends Dearly,they can be Huge "Beer Snobs" who are always slagging my Beloved Heineken & Yeingling [Porter]~So I very much wanted to tell my buddies that "Rouge Dead Guy Ale" is just another overpriced,over Hyped Brew,sold to them by slick Marketing aimed @ Beer snobs just like them,who feel you must pay @ least 15 bucks a 6er for decent brew,[which I feel is total bullsh*&] there are tons of gr8 brews out there for around 7~10 bucks a 6er.
Anyway,Last night I made my usual Beer run after work,and Decided to Finally check out some Dead Guy Ale,[15 bucks a 6er] upon getting home,I Popped one right away and poured it in a standard Pint glass,and right away was taken by the beautiful,slightly amber,almost copper color,OK..looks very nice,Next I gave it the ole sniffer test,smelled malty and quite hoppy,which led to my mouth watering like a Lion looking at a Zebra,it had a decent Head,but nothing to write home about..but I have to say, as soon as I Tasted it,the less then stellar head meant nothing at all!quite simply this is one Top Notch Brew,with hints of Carmel & maybe a little toffee also,very malty & hoppy [just like it smelled] So in closing,my Beer Snob Friends were right on the money [this time..hehe] "Rouge Dead Guy Ale" is a Wonderful Brew,and will always have a place in my Beer Fridge;)

Well, after a long time coming, I tried Rogues' Dead Guy Ale. It pours out a nice, dark amber colour, and smells like beer should smell - a nice mix of hops' fruityness, malt-y sweetness, and yeast-y yeastiness. Taste totally follows the smell, with an upfront sweetness and a dry finish. Mouthfeel is light for the colour, but not to fizzy.
All in all, this is another beer that I would gladly drink, but probably not buy again, just absed on the beer alone. Add in the premium Rogue seems to add to all their beers, and it is definitely not a beer I will buy again.
