Double Dead Guy Ale 2009 (Rogue)
Ratebeer 3.56 89th percentile
Beer Advocate B+
This is one nice bitter ale. The first sip reveals to you a sense that there will be huge grapefruit/pine bitterness to follow. Sadly the taste is more candy malt and roasted nuts followed by a slight citrus and pine resin hop bitterness. The nose is actually quite attenuated from what you might have expected. Over all it is a very smooth, bitter ale with a touch of wood and bourbon.
The bitter citrus and pine resin makes your mouth salivate for the next sip. It seems to keep on building after each gulp.

No mistaking this beer for a lightweight. The smell and taste of alcohol is a powerful as a Superbowl Sunday post-game fart.
It was very nice, but for $15 a bomber... Possibly for a special occasion.

I sat on my friends couch and watched Elvis Costello's train-wreck of a talk show. Is it just me or does Elvis look like Gordon Freeman; must be the glasses.
Overall 7/10 BOOM Costello head-shot
This was a good bitter ale. The ceramic bottle was a nice touch; it now holds my dish washing soap.
