22 oz. bottle. No bottled on date, and I dgaf. Super stoked to try this beer! Poured into a Boulevard tulip.
A - Pours a murky cloudy orange color. No head to speak of. Looks amazing!
S - Oaked vanilla from the Dead Guy Whiskey barrels, amidst a crisp floral hop smell. Smells amazing, too.
T - Extreme burst of vanilla. Hot booze. Super delicious. Barrel aged beers are definitely my thing, and I am dying to try the Dead Guy Whiskey, so my first bottle of Rogue John John Ale is a lovely precursor to that for sure! I might be enjoying this beer more than I enjoy the actual Rogue Dead Guy Ale.
M - Sweetness invades the palate from start to finish. Burnt brown sugar taste lingers, which is very distinct.
Overall, very glad to have found and tried this. If anything, it might have been just a tad bit TOO sweet, but an excellent beer! I will definitely buy this again.
Rogue John John Dead Guy Ale ---4/5.

I love beer aged in oak and just could not pass this one up.
Appearance 4.0: Gorgeous, deep golden color. Nice, 1/2" head that stuck around for most of the session. Opaque with some particulate matter, which is always a plus in my book. Very nice lacing.
Smell 4.0: Nice nose on this brew. Subdued and somewhat dry, but with a very nice bouquet of corn, oak tannins, malt, vanilla, wood rosin...lovely.
Taste 4.25: Front is slightly tart, but mellow. Middle is where the barley and the oak start to mingle and...wow...what a delicious mingling it is. Also, at this taste level, I detect hints -way in the back of the palate-- of whiskey. Finish features a fantastic vanilla/wood rosin taste mingling with the liquor notes and the light hops along with the malt. Aftertaste is long and features so many flavors, but the oak notes are of special interest to me.
Mouthfeel 3.75: Right on the nose for this style and the tastes they are trying to accentuate.
Overall 4.0: Excellent beer. Reminds me of Innis and Gunn in the old days, before demand forced them to change how they aged their beers. However, I&G never featured taste collages like these. Excellent balance on almost every level and just an all-around fantastic beer. Recommended.
