12 oz. bottle, no apparent bottled-on date present. Haven't had a Rogue Dead Guy in a while, but I will always remember it as one of two beers that officially got me interested in craft beer, along with Bell's Oberon which I also haven't had for a while. Opening this b*tch with my church key bottle opener my mom got me for xmas.
A - Pours a light see through copper color with a lot of bubbles streaming to the top. A little 1 finger head that seems to be fading away pretty quickly.
S - Coppery, malty, reminds me of how the Rogue Santa's Private Reserve seemed to smell.
T - Again, a weird coppery sort of taste, a lot of heavy malts. I seem to not enjoy this brew as much anymore since I became addicted to IPA's, but this is still a very tasty brew. Maybe a little over-carbonated, just a bit.
M - Mouthfeel is good and clean, if maybe just a little thick. The malts hang out on your tongue.
Overall, Rogue is one of my favorite breweries for damn sure, and the Rogue Dead Guy Ale is probably their landmark beer, so if you haven't tried anything by them yet (which is doubtful to say the least, if you've read this far) then start out with this one and work your way onwards.
Rogue Dead Guy Ale--- 4/5.
