Poured from 750 ml bottle into a standard pint.

A: Dark amber. Pours into a hefty, foamy, off-white head. Settles slowly. Leaves little craters and sticky lacing as it settles. Never totally disintegrates, but leaves some foam on the surface.

S: Coffee malt, molasses, caramel, and almond.

T: Strong, dark, bitter, sweet malt. Peat and pine nut. Sharp hops.

M: Heavy alcohol and dry.

D: Great sipping beer.

Outstanding atmosphere. Great appearance and nose. Full, complex flavor. Overall, this is a great quaff.

Poured into the Sam Adams perfect pint.

A - Pours a beautiful dark/strong amber color with copper/orange hints. The head is off white to cream and is very dense, with tiny bubbles all over. It is about 1 inch tall and retinas eternally. A bit of an oily looking pour. Near perfect look. Minimal lacing but still some stickiness.

S - Grassy and earthy tones quickly come to mind. With some nice grainy maltiness in the middle. Some mild fruit sweetness and a grassy but light hop aroma.

T - Extremely attractive roasted malt taste at the beginning that mellows out to some nice malt sweetness. Similar to a Scotch Ale. Nice overall body in the mouth. Very well balanced beer. Everything seems to be tightly packed. Some honey sweetness along with mild pear juice. A nice dry finish with some mellow but present hop bitterness.

M - Nice medium bodied beer with creamy and smooth character.

D - Extremely delicious!

3.45/5  rDev -11.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: A slightly hazy, reddish-orange body capped by two fingers of bubbly off-white head that features good lacing and retention.

Aroma: Lots of earthy hops, dark fruit, and lightly toasted malt with a hint or two of booze--almost dead on Doppelbock and very inviting.

Flavor: Lots of bitter leafy and earthy hops up front, with dark fruit and toasted malt underneath. It's composed of the same elements as the aroma, but ends up much less satisfying. The alcohol is masked well, making only the slightest of appearances. Raisins, cereal grains, and a lots of leafy bitterness in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and a little sticky with good carbonation. Dries in the finish.

Drinkability: A lot faster than the 9.0% ABV would lead you to believe, but still no session favorite.

Verdict: Double Dead Guy is a weird kind of beast--it seems like it was developed as a hoppy Doppelbock, but it ends up too leafy and in need of more citrusy hops. I'd be interested to see how this ages, if the hops mellow out and the flavor profile promised in the aroma comes out more.

Got this on tap at the Saucer in Addison; came In their short-stemmed wine glass they reserve for 6+ ABV brews.

A - poured dark copper with head that disipatwd in a couple minutes. Gorgeous lacing from the initial head, but little lacing thereafter.

S - Smells just like grass. Light floral aroma, but mostly grass.

T - very piney hops take the forefront. The grass is still there, but aftertaste is very alcohol-heavy. Defintely for sipping. Of I'd paired it with something better, I'd be able to avoid comparing it it to "pine scent air freshener in a glass". But the piney hops are undeniable.

M - medium body with decent alcohol and lngering bitterness that strengthens the mouthfeel.

D - I like Strong Ales. I like Oregon. But in the end, this tasted too much like Northwest Rainforest in a Glass to get the full 5 stars from me.

Poured from 750ml bottle into Macado's "Halloween 2009" branded American pint glass.

Appearance: Pours deep, opaque straw color with a very large beige head that leaves lots of lacing.

Smell: Smells just like regular Dead Guy- sweet, bready malts with a slight sweet-tea hint, only difference is a more noticable floral hop profile.

Taste: Once again, tastes like Dead Guy- bready malt with a sweet-tea finish. As with the smell, though, has a higher hop bitterness and sweet alcohol in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Full-bodied and smooth with balanced, natural carbonation and a dryer finish than I remember from regular Dead Guy.

Drinkability: Deceptively drinkable for 9%ABV. Basically, this is Dead Guy with a bit more of a punch. I don't know if it's quite worth the price compared to regular Dead Guy, but still quite good and worth at least one purchase.

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a Macado's Halloween-branded American pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a hazy light brown color. Has a foamy white head that lingers for a bit a leaves considerable lacing on the glass. Looks like Dead Guy...

Smell: Very malty-smelling with a hint of piney hops. A hint of spices as well. Smells a little maltier than Dead Guy...

Taste: Definitely maltier than Dead Guy. Starts off with grassy/piney hops and finishes with sweet-ish malts. The hops tend to dominate but the malts come through strong as well. The alcohol is certainly more noticeable in this one.

Mouthfeel: Crisp and full-bodied. The alcohol gives it a noticeable warmth and the hops leave a nice piney aftertaste.

Drinkability: A great beer but not that much different from Dead Guy that I could justify paying so much extra for it. Worth a try at least once but once is probably enough.

Live review. Poured from the 750 ML bottle that I purchased along with 5 other Rogue beers within the past month. This one is that nice large bottle painted red. No observed "best by" date but mentioned on the bottle is: 2008 vintage. Poured into my Dark Horse Brewing Company pint glass. I recall having and rating this beer at least twice before. It seems as if some force does not want my review here on BA. Hmmmm...

A Nice light brown creamy head that has good retention on the inside of the pint glass. Body is a nice dark caramel that glows impressively in front of direct light. 4.0

S Nice sweet malt and only a bit of hops playing a supporting role. I like this smell. 4.0

T Good, sweet malt takes center stage here to conspire to be a kind of Arrogant Bastard second cousin with bold malt, hops and bigness but not as bodacious as the Stone Brewing Company flagship American Strong Ale. Good tasting beer indeed. 4.5

M For all of its bigness (described in part above) it has a nice smoothness that Arrogant Bastard may lack. That makes it easier to drink than AB as well in my opinion. 4.0

D Good for the stated 9.0% ABV and big flavors that normally would drive the drinkability down. 4.0

Notes: We'll have to wait and see if this review gets the same fate as the previous two that I did.

This Rogue crafted liquid pours out of a snazzy-looking 750 bottle a clear copper/burnt umber color with high forming foamy crown after a vigorus pour into my Optimator mug. The head settles after a minute or two but leaves a healthy amount of foam.

The smell is that of caramel malt, toasted biscuit and apple skin.

The taste is malty sweet to start things out, grainy and lots of biscuit flavor that drys out about halfway through and closes on a more bitter note with citrus hops keeping things from ever getting too sweet. The alcohol doesn't hide itself but isn't overpowering or unpleasant.
This brew kinda reminds me of a strange American take on an English IPA.

The feel on this (dead)guy is spot on, moderate amounts of carbonation make for a creamy and medium to full sized sipper that never gets overly syrupy. Clean, and crisp. Superb.

This was exactly what I was looking for I absolutely love Dead Guy and this one is just as tastey(more so) and just as easy to drink. The only 'problem' is the abv. prevents it from being truly sessionable like it's little brother.
10 dollars however is a bit steep for what you get. But price aside, this is a damn tasty and satisfying beer. worth a go.

Got this at De Bierkoning in Amsterdam.

From a red ceramic bomber into a snifter.

Note: 2008 vintage drunk in October 2009.

APPEARANCE: Pours a thick two finger off-white head with excellent retention. Head looks fluffy but thick at the same time. Clear with very low levels of carbonation. Color is a deep burnt umber but turns a nice mahogany brown when held to the light. Head slowly fades to a thin film and leaves some good immediate lacing. A half film remains until the end and leaves lots of nice lacing down the glass. Very nice.

SMELL: Fantastic first impression. Toasted and caramel malt and some light toffee sweetness. Some slight citrus orange and lemon perhaps, but the hops are outgunned by the malt overtones. Notes of wood earthiness and some dark fruits in the background. A top notch bold nose for sure. Very enticing.

TASTE: Big malt punch with just enough hops to keep it very well balanced. Toasted malt, caramelized malt, and some nice toffee sweetness again up front. Moves on to some light citrus notes, like the nose had advertised, and some dark fruits, particularly raisins. End is reserved for some flowery hops and bitterness, even a touch of chocolate, as well as some spicy elements from the alcohol. Bold and longer lasting aftertaste is bitter with touches of floral elements as well. A very well balanced strong beer that tells a story.

PALATE: Medium body and medium carbonation. A little lighter on the palate that I would have liked, but goes down creamy smooth and finishes with a touch of dryness on the palate. Good here, though it could use slightly more weight. All things considered, this is a really picky complaint.

OVERALL: Fantastic. Just great. This bottle is well over a year old and I can imagine it's aged very well. Reminded me of Dead Guy, which is a good beer itself, but the senior version with a few years of wisdom under its belt. A malty treat with a beauty hop profile to balance it out. Very drinkable as well. This was a real surprise to be honest, as I wasn't expecting it to be this good. One of the best beers I've ever had. I just hope I'll be able to find this again somewhere.

The good:

The color and aroma of the beer are great, the taste is also very good without any food. Malty sweetness and a good backbone of bitterness.

The bad:

The beer alone was good, the beer with a meal gave some extremely alcoholic flavors every once and a while it was weird. Not nearly as good with a meal as alone on the palate.

Since this beer is so high in alcohol I don't see alot of people drinking it without a meal, there are better beers for the price.

But this beer is definitely something everyone should try.

Poured in a Duvel glass.Yesterday.2009 version.

A-Light brown bready color with a great head.Nice medium sized bubbles and good lacing.I like this a lot.

S-Smell is malt-dominated,but the hops make it strong and present.I smell cherry-like scents.Pretty nice.

T-Sweet,sweet malts.I see a resemblance to the original Dead guy.caramels,cherries,apple hard-candy,caramel apple,red flavors up first.Then,the alcohol lets you know this is not a beer to be fucked with,but it doesn't attack you,bringing presence without being foul.Finally,the hops reach surface with a IPA-strength bitterness and mouth-refreshing balance and contrast.I would've gotten sick of the malts otherwise.It's a bitchin' beer.

M-Thinner than I thought and rather soft.Properly carbonated.

D-Too easy to drink.I drank this so fast,it almost pissed me off.

Wow.I liked this more than I thought I would.I almost said nothing while drinking it.I loved the hops on this,since they didn't make this a DIPA but were there enough to bring harmony,not discordance to the table.I'm a musician.I would say this is very much like a doppelbock with Ale yeast.Very similar malt characteristics.I am buying Double Dead Guy again.

Poured it into a snifter. Pours an amber cloudy color with an extremely thick creamy eggshell colored heading. Left some nice leg's behind.

Smell is amazingly well balanced with the toasty goodness of the malts at first then turns to a nice bitter hoppy aroma that fills the nose and leaves the mouth watering for more.

Taste starts out extremely malty on the palate.A nice warm alcohol kicks in that smoothes the palate for the big finish with as I've stated in the nose HOPS kicks in a mile a minute to leave a nice linger that lasts to that next sip.

Mouth is very smooth and slick,with a full bodied feel and an amazing sting on the tongue.

Drink is very good even for a 9$ ABV. Maybe a bit on the heavy side for a session beer but certainly a must taste.

750ml bottle, dated 2009. Pours a hazy orange amber with a frothy smallish head that goes to a thin film that leaves some lacing.

The aroma is sweet caramel malts, toasted toffee, and some fruits and a little alcohol.

The flavor is toasted biscuity malts, nuts and some fruitiness with a little alcohol and some decent bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with low smooth carbonation.

Overall, an interesting beer. I like this a lot better than than the regular version but there's still some of the toasted biscuity malts that I don't much care for.

From bottle to wine glass

Appearance is dark amber almost read, tremendous fluffly head very long lasting. excellent lacing.

aroma is very sweet with just the right piney hop scent and a
touch of floral scent. maybe some caramel.

taste is about the same with a nice bitter finish, the caramel is more prevalent in the taste.

the mouthfeel has light carbonation and the taste of clean water. slightly creamy.

really good drinkability though fairly heavy.

all in all really an excellent beer from rogue. its been a while since i tried the dead guy ale but if i remember this double dead guy is just miles ahead of it.

A: Nice, clear burnt orange. Poured from bomber gave nice head lasting half glass, wispy lac left behind.
S: Surprisingly flowery! I look for nothing objectionable and that is what you get.
M/F: A very strong ale, it has a round feel in the mouth. Sweet, sour, bitter...you get it all.
T: I like Dead Guy, I love this! I might try to grab a case to get me thru the winter.
D: Kidding, right? 2 of these bombers and I am on the floor telling the wife "Honest Honey, I only had 2!!!" Give away your keys, please!

A fine gift on my birthday, red Double Dead guys! I have stryed from Rogues, an old standby, for no good reason, and am glad to be back, needless to say. The pour was a smooth red-brown with orange edges and had a great, dense creamy off-white 2 finger head with lotsa lace. The aroma was a hoppy floral quality with wet, smokiness. The taste, however, bent towards the malt more than the hop, which was nice, as I expected an extreme hopped pale ale. Instead, a nice strong ale with toasted malt, earthy grain-herbs & caramel sweetness, hemmed in by hop bites. Full, but not heavy, sweet but not tacky, I could definitely go for another!

Poured from a red painted bottle dated 2008 vintage into a tulip glass.

A-Stunning, glowing ruddy amber with bright orange highlights and a thick creamy eggshell head with beautiful lacing. I'm going to say this is a perfect 10 for looks.

S-Toasty sweet malts with some hops in the background. Earthy, fruity barleywine detected as well.

T-SMOOTH! Bittersweet toffee malts give way to a fruity midrange followed by an astringent citrus-but-not-overly-hopped finish. The watchword here is balance, and this brew does it very well. It is a graceful symphony of sweetness and bitterness, with the ABV so well hidden that heat only appears in the afterglow. The barleywine-like notes that seem present in the nose only slightly noticed over the doughy sweet malts. 72 IBU's? Wow, could have fooled me, unless the year of aging has really mellowed this out. Outstanding.

M-Creamy and robust, without being sticky, chewy, or overbearing. Well balanced carbonation, and very well done.

D-This is so drinkable it is scary, given the ABV. It is hard to slow down and savor the 750, it is simply that well done. I am anxious to try the 2009, but I'm sure that a year of age has done great things with this brew. While I am not a huge fan of Dead Guy, there is very little that this beer has in common with it than name.

Rogue does a great job of producing a nice range of truly solid brews. This one is exceptional.

Review #100. Got this one as a gift from my Dad in Halifax, who paid the premium price of $17.50 for it. Coupled with the fact that I'm a big fan of Rogue products, I thought this makes the perfect beer for my 100th review.

Pours a stunning hue of glowing copper/scarlet red with bright marmalade highlights. Definitely an attention grabber. Just over two fingers of creamy ivory white head crown this beer, leaving drapes of sticky, compact lace. Excellent head retention that is constantly fueled by a steady stream of miniscule carbonated bubbles.

Wonderful scent of big, juicy cascade hops hits the nose first followed by grapefruit rhine, tangerines, buttery malts, biscuit and light toffee.

Clean buttery malt and biscuit are quickly followed by a long dose of herbal hops, grapefruit rhine, hints of coffee and a pronounced alcoholic finish. To make the finish a little less "in-your-face" (for lack of a better word), they threw in some sweet, juicy tangerine to balance it all out.

Mouthfeel is on the border from medium to full. Creamy, smooth and nicely balanced. The 9% ABV is disguised quite well despite its appearance in the finish.

Yet another great beer from Rogue, and happy to make it my 100th review. Great bouquet of scents, full of flavour and easy to drink; what more could I ask for. Being a fan of hops, I think it helped a bit in its taste and drinkability. Overpriced: I think so, but glad I could get my hands on it. Can't wait to review another 100!

Nicely painted bottle. Worth keeping for homebrew usage. 2008 version, so I guess aged, but who knows if properly as it was given to me by my son several months ago. Thanks #1.
Nicely done pop, psst. Reasonable heavy pale malt aroma with a slightly toasted quality. Very slight hop hints.
Pours quite attratively. Full rich and rather dense head that takes its time on settling down. Cloudy amber with orange/red hues surrounded by dark gold.
Whew. Hmmmm. Wow. There's a lot going on there with the flavor. Began as a heavier single Dead Guy with rich malt flavor and slight toast again, but then the big and bold hop bitterness and just slightly less than that flavors showed up. This is all supported by an alcohol bite (maybe a bit strong as it pushes hot without actually getting there). And this is just the first sip! Boy, I can't imagine the intensity of this when it was fresh as it certainly holds a lot right now. Malt richness is big. Some drinks hold a pleasant malt sweetness, kinda' sugary, but mild.
Full mouth feel with carbonation on the flatter side.
This is a slow drinker. It seems bigger than 9%. Fullness of alcohol, malt and hops. Will be tough to finish a bomber on my own. Guess it's good I started early in the evening. Seems I've moved into my first winter beer. It's cold enough - no day in the 50's in the past two week and it's only October.

2009 double dead guy in an awesome bright orange/red bottle.

A: pours a hazy copper color and has a frothy white head. This one has very good head retention, looks like it is well carbonated too.

S: The smell reminds me of a wet pine forest floor. hops hit the nose first but I also get a butter pecan/toffee quality.

T: Good! great balance! I get dank piny hop character as well as a chewy caramel (wrapped in tinfoil). The beer seems like its going to be sweet but most certainly finishes bitter and dry. Great beer, much better than I remember it being in the past.

M: smooth and then prickly mouthfeel. I would say medium body

D: very drinkable given the alcohol...The complex flavors and perfect head and carbonation really help break up the sweetness.

Pours a nice orange color with a tan, fluffy head that leaves behind good amount of lace.
Smell is smoky, malt, alcohol, floral & peat.
Taste is all that and some hops, too.
Medium body with a decent effervescence. Good, slow drinking from a 750 ml. Almost a sipping beer. I prefer the original Dead Guy if only slightly.

on tap at Bodega:

This beer poured a clear dark gold color and formed a huge light tan foamy head like a float leaving a latticed lace as it subsided. A medium amount of carbonation was present. An aroma of malt, caramel, and yeast. The flavor was of malt, caramel, and pepper. The body was medium light and slightly creamy. The finish was slightly sweet. A good beer.

750 ml bottle poured into the snifter glass. This has been sitting in the cellar for about a year now. Decided to crack her open on this cool late Sept night while watching MNF. Back of bottle contains all of the ingredients and specs of the brew

The double dead guy pours a deep amber with a thick off white head that sits atop and lingers. Smell is sweet and smooth. Nose consists of malts, doughy breads and something sweet that I can't quite pinpoint. Smell is not overpowering but very enjoyable. Quaff is also extremely smooth with the 9% abv very well hidden by the toasted malts. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and I say the drinkability is high. After peaking at other reviews I have noticed that many are saying the ABV is noticeable but I disagree. The complexity of the taste overshadows the ABV. Would like to see how one smooths out in the cellar. Another solid brew from the guys at Rogue.

Poured a dark amber with a generous head that slowly reduced to a lumpy cover. The aroma was both hoppy and malty. The taste was also both bitter and sweet, but a nice balance of the two. The feel was medium bodied with good carbonation. Drinkability was good. I liked Double Dead Guy better than Double Bastard, but it was close. I definitely want to do a side by side in the near future.
