Rogue John John Dead Guy Ale Review
Rogue John John Dead Guy Ale
Tues March 2nd 2010
Since 1988, Rogue Brewing Co hailing from Newport, Oregon has delighted the beer community for years by providing solid drinking 6-packs and obnoxiously good bombers. The newest release to hit our shelves is the “John John Dead Guy Ale,” is the first in a wonderful craft collaboration between Rogue Brewmaster John Maier and Rogue Spirits Master Distiller John Couchot. Available in 22oz bottles, John John is Rogue’s award winning Dead Guy Ale matured in Rogue’s award winning Dead Guy Whiskey barrels. Once poured from the bottle, this beast unleashes bright vanilla and cake-spice notes that make you feel warm and comfortable almost as if you’re living in a barrel room drinking Maibock with a bunch of singing hobbits. The drink is full and flavorful with notes ranging from butterscotch candies and gram cracker, to cherries and brown sugar. The oak presence was well-balanced with the lively citrus/acidity you’d expect from the Dead Guy Maibock, but with new caramel and oak-spiced flavors imparted from the barrel aging.
