Rogue Dead Guy Ale…in a bottle

Appearance-amber copper color with a decent head of about two fingers, the head rises and falls settles with a large crackling bubbly of lace.

Smell-pungent with a very notable mix of spiced hop and breaded sweet malt, the two smells mix well and the aroma is pleasant.

Taste/Mouthfeel-medium mouthfeel, a hint of hops upfront but the sweetness of the sugar and breaded malt dominates upfront, mix of toffee and candied sugar notes. As it progresses the hops come back into play, the finish is smooth but retains a lot of flavor, last notes were sugar and hops on the tongue. More sips bring up some slight fruit notes and alcohol but the dominant characteristics remain. Pretty tasty.

Overall-nice beer, deserving of its reputation. Worth a try, hopefully you won’t get gouged like I did in trying to procure it. Recommended.

Trying the Dead Guy Ale for the first time in quite a few years. I do remember it being better. The beer poured a cloudy orange with thin head that is not lacing. The smell has malt and balancing hops...slightly sweet. The hops provide an initial punch of bitterness in the taste, but then the sweet malt helps to calm the pallet. ABV is present in the first few swigs and then settles as the pallet adjusts. The mouthfeel is a light to medium body with good carbonaiton. Overall it is a solid ale.
