Rogue Dead Guy Ale

Rogue Ales

USA

What the hell is going on in Oregon? Am I just not informed about all the strange brews which come out of this state? This radical dark malty ale comes in a large 22 oz. bottle packed with 6.6% alc. Speaking of the bottle, there is a skeleton on it (looks like its got a penis for a head), sitting on a barrel, drinking some Dead Guy ale. There is some weird experimentation going on in Oregon, and this is one of them along with Hair of the Dog. The taste is chocolatey and slightly sweet, not much difference from Hair of the Dog.

Bitter, heavy flavor, hoppy aroma. Nice copper color. Awful name, but a quality ale. Tastes very much like a pale ale. Great label of you're a collector, or to use for your homebrewing bottling.

I was a little apprehensive before trying this. I envisioned a slaughterhouse where the byproducts went into the beer. Yeah, I know that would never happen, but it unnerved me all the same. Good thing it turned out to be a tasty brew, or I might have thrown the whole mess up.
