Happy Thanksgiving! Val is still asleep, so I’m updating the blog while catching up on SVU. I have to work tomorrow, which isn’t fun, but I guess this is part of adulting. I’ve also been watching the news and it looks like this wind isn’t going to help the parade. One of my friends usually goes to the parade every year, but between the wind and the cold, she’s staying home. Anyways, let’s get to the beer.
Style: Maibock/Helles Bock
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Aged in Dead Guy Whiskey Barrels, Dead N’ Dead is the evolution of Dead Guy Ale. The barrels enhance the robust malt and hop profiles of original Dead Guy Ale. The ale soaks in hints of oak and whiskey while maturing over several months at the Rogue ocean aging room.”
Random: I’ve had Dead Guy whiskey once or twice and enjoyed it.
The beer poured with three fingers of cream-colored head. It dissipated slowly and left a lot of lacing on the glass. The body was clear and copper-colored. There was a lot of carbonation visible. The nose had notes of bourbon, leather and vanilla. The taste was much of the same. It had some nutty malt and quickly went into the same notes of bourbon and vanilla. The body was on the thicker side with a lot of carbonation. It had a lengthy finish with vanilla. I enjoyed this beer a lot. It was an interesting take on Dead Guy and I would definitely have this one again.
