3xB: Rogue Double Dead Guy
This Week’s Big Bottle: Rogue Double Dead Guy
With a name like DOUBLE DEAD GUY, you may want to reconsider what you’re doing.
However, with the Rogue Double Dead Guy, you don’t have to worry. It’s a delicious beer.
This beer pours a nice deep bronze color that’s cloudy and impossible to see through. It has a nice floral aroma, just to make sure you’re aware of the fact that you’re seconds away from tasting a hoppy beer. The flavor is actually quite balanced. It’s very thick and heavy with a malty caramel sweetness, a strong hoppy bitterness, and a boozy bitter finish.
This bottle came out minutes before we started playing drinking games. I remain thankful that it came out early so I could remain conscious for the evening.
Get out there and give this one a try. I’m pretty sure it was in a red bottle last year, but their double chocolate stout is red this time around. So, be aware and avoid any confusion. Because if you’ve got your heart set on a strong hoppy beer, it may be a bit of a downer when you get a chocolate stout.
