Rogue's Double Dead Guy Ale

I absolutely love Rogue's Dead Guy Ale. It's a domestic amber beer brewed in Oregon. It has its caramel. It has its hops. There's just the right amount of fizz (some beer enthusiasts probably cringe when I use that term, but I don't care). Basically, I thought it was about as good as a beer could get. Until....

Until I tried Rogue's Double Dead Guy Ale. Holy moly! Talk about Christmas for my mouth. You see, since West Virginia recently passed the "craft beer law" we can now buy beer with more than 6% alcohol by volume. This opens the door to beers like the Double Dead Guy Ale (9% ABV). As I've come to find, the more alcohol in beer, the greater and more vibrant the taste. So, yeah... more caramel, more fruit and more hops! It's a taste explosion.

Check it out sometime.


  1. L.C. You might as well jump to about four fingers of Johnnie Walker Blue. It'll make you forget all about hops....

  2. Hmmm, I'll have to check it out sometime soon - I'm still just so excited I can by Yuengling in WV I'm 'stuck' on it :)
