4.13/5  rDev +4.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Painted red 750mL bottle with 2008 vintage date.

Appearance: Thick, almost frothy tan head with small bubbles. Thin, but solid layer of head remains after 45 seconds and some lacing on the pint glass. Medium-amber color.

Nose: Hops and a raisony-sweetness are my first thoughts. Maybe a hint of currant, and apricot. Something like Dulce de leche or maybe condensed milk (without the "ew, gross, it's condensed milk from a can" smell).

Palate: Softer carbonation than I thought based on the head. A smooth, medium-bodied mouth-feel. Nicely bitter when agitated to reveal classic Rogue hop characteristics. The hops still have that delicate floral flavor, which I appreciate. Midpalate is nicely sweet, but not cloying, and is countered by a bitter bite right before the medium-length finish.

Notes: A solid "double" version of the Dead Guy Ale, not quite as extreme as I was anticipating, what with the bizarre packaging. Worth a try and I'll definitely want more of this one!
