750 ceramic bottle: 2008 vintage (hiding in the back of the refrigerator for quite a while.) This one pours a clear amber color. There was a fairly decent sized off-white head on it. Leaves a fair amount of lacing. It has a good nose. Grainy, roasted malts, fruits, toffee. The taste is very good. Some graininess, toffee, a bit of bitterness, some fruits in the background. A hint of spiciness also. A very nice brew. I need to check out a fresher bottle, but this was really nice.

Strong and dense yellow color with a 2/5" white head on it. Aroma of alcohol. Some bock like malts.

This really does come across like a bigger, more concentrated dead guy ale, a beer I never got into in the first place. This beer has a good marketing angle, I think people just like the design moreso than the substance. So much booziness. That is the first taste that permeates the entire drinking experience. Bock like malt body, barleywine like alcohol heat.

Pass.

The red bottle was of the 2009 and earlier variety, having discontinued and switched to the 2010 XS thereafter. I gave it all 5s. Best I've ever had on draft and bottle was pretty close. I kept a few for maybe 3-4 years and they just weren't as good. I hope I get to taste it again one day. As always, that's just what my taste buds tell me.

This is a lovely beer. One would think a "double" would imply more hops, but my opinion is it is as bitter as the Dead Guy, but more tasty. It's creamy and hoppy, but it goes down smoothly. Its full bodied and as with all Rogue beers has a definite aftertaste.I don't have the skills to describe more specific components, but this is a beer to please someone with a sensitive tongue!
