3xB: Rogue Double Dead Guy

This Week’s Big Bottle: Rogue Double Dead Guy

With a name like Dead Guy, you have to feel a little nervous drinking it.

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.
