It is with a heavy heart that I am writing this beer review #440, as the glass I've been using since review #1 came to unfortunate end just mere moments ago.

Appearance - Pours a hazy, bright copperish amber with an off-white head that sits 2 fingers thick. Good retention. Lacing is spotty, with little stick.

Smell - Consists mainly of raisin, stone fruit and touches of astringency. Lesser notes of toffee, caramel and bread complete the aroma.

Taste - Hits on notes of caramel, toffee, fruity esters like earthy red apple, hints of stone fruit, and underlying honey that shines mid-taste. Finishes with moderate hop character that touches on orange and grapefruit.

Mouthfeel - full-bodied with a light syrupy stickiness, and moderate carbonation. Tingles the lips. Goes down smooth, with a faint trace of heat.

Overall - A solid effort from Rogue, and my 3rd or 4th endeavor with this beer over the years. It takes the basics of Dead Guy and builds upon that, creating a strong, beefy version of it's namesake. That said, it's not worth the high cost, because the regular Dead Guy does the job just as well for less than half the price ( or approx. 1/4th if going by sixer pricing. Yeesh!)

This did help me get over losing my reviewing glass, however, so thank you DDG!
