A bigger, boozier version of Rogue's standard Dead Guy. The smoothly sweet caramel malts from the normal brew are on display here, but the alcohol content is kicked up a significant notch and results in a boozy afterbite which is not present in the normal beer, IMO to the beer's detriment.
In terms of the nose, appearance, and my overall impressions of this beer: it's about on par with Dead Guy. For whatever it's worth, I would rather have the normal beer, and that's even without taking into account the double priced nature of this offering. In terms of Doppelbocks, I would rather pay this price for stuff like Celebrator, Dark Horse's Percolator, or less for locals like Bell's Consecrator, or even the Sam version.
Serving type: on-tap
