Right off the bat, I have to say this beer is nothing like any dopplebock I have ever had, yet at the same time I have never felt that the regular Dead Guy Ale ever fit into a "category" either. To compare/review this as a dopplebock is certain to bring about misconceptions. That said...
The way I feel about this beer is that it is very accurately titled as a Double Dead Guy. I found myself thinking that this beer tasted, smelled, and yada yada like a concentrated Dead Guy - thus, double Dead Guy.
Had a standard pour - nice head, medium carbonation that subsided after a few minutes. Cloudy and dark tan in color.
Smell was dominated by a malty, "box of raisins" aroma - I couldn't pick up any real hoppiness.
Taste - Like i said, I've never been a huge fan of Rogue's Dead guy, but I have drank a lot of 'em and, to me, this really tasted like a big Dead Guy...Hardly any hops, yet there is still enough bitterness to carry your tastebuds out of a malt infested warzone and into safety...I wouldn't call it balanced but I wouldn't say it is out-of-wack either.
Mouthfeel - perfect...carbonation and body are both suitable for a Double Dead Guy, as well as for any brew that claims to have any similarities .
Drinkabiliy - One is plenty, at least for me. Supplement this brew with others of similar quality and characteristic - if you like to slam down Dead Guy Ale, then you will love to sip away at this one
