    It pours a hazy burnt-orange and light-amber with a thick and foamy white head and some spots of lacing. An aroma of caramel malts, hops, oranges and citrus, cherries, light whiskey, sweet breads and biscuits, and spiciness. The mouthfeel is smooth, thick, and rich. Flavors of caramel malts, hops, oranges and citrus, cherries, whiskey, sweet breads, tart apples, and spices. Excellent!

    A little orange color to a hazy gold beer with a foamy head. Smells of fruits, more sour fruits, vanilla, butter, and maybe the tiniest bit of oak. A thin mouthfeel with flavors of whiskey and water. A little sweet malt in there with a touch of smokey oak and a hop kicker at the end. Nothing at all like what I was expecting, certainly something you need to try at least once.

    I like Rogue, but not a fan of this one. The pour was a hazy golden colour with brownish hints. The aroma was less sweet than I would expect from a beer classed as a bock. Some fruit. but mainly alcohol and malt. IT tasted just like it smelled. Not a great experience.

    Sampled on 2/26/2010. This heller bock pours an orange gold color from a paper labeled 22oz bottle. Medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is caramel, vanilla and oak. A medium bodied bock. The malts are caramel, semi-sweet with hint of orange, oak and vanilla. Touch of wood. Hops are earthy and floral. Nice carbonation. Hints of whisky and wood, mostly at the finish. The barrel aging effect are kind of subtle, perhaps some more time in the wood would have helped. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter, touch of whisky and a little boozy.

    Pours a nice clear bittersweet orange with a fairly thick orangy-beige head that does not hang around too long. Aroma is yeasty and woody, slightly malty with a hint of smoke. Flavor is rich, malty, woody and a little yeasty with hints of smoke and sweetness. Texture is silky smooth and fairly fizzy, leaving a pleasantly woody finish.

    First of all, I'm not a huge fan of barrel aged beers, but this one had a different feel to it. It poured a cloudy golden orange hue with a mid sized whitish head that lasted. There was no rye in the aroma, but there was a more rich aroma than the dead guy ale due to wooden earthiness imparted by the barrel. The flavour was fuller than a dead guy ale as well. Better than your average barrel aged beer...IMO

    C'mon - whoever added this dropped the ball. It's 8%, and called Rogue John John (not JJ Dead Guy)...and it would be helpful to note in the description of the beer that this is Dead Guy Ale aged in Dead Guy Whiskey barrels! on tap (but outside-so in a plastic cup). as a frame of reference i've got the ok but passable Dead Guy at 3.1, and the tasty Double Dead Guy at 3.9. This was better than either of those. It was poured cold, but with a thick frothy tan head. smelled great, but mostly malt and earthy hops. not a lot of whisky. super mellow, but flavorful. smooth as hell. i'd already liked it, but when it started to warm, the whisky came out and played very nicely with the aroma and flavor, while never overpowering the beer. I'm not a huge fan of Dead Guy or it's siter whiskey by themselves, but apparently together they make a helluva beer.

    On tap and I had to get my growler. Much better than any of the Dead Guy that I have had. The oak comes through very nicely and mellows down the hops. Poured a deep amber with a lofty head. Nose is sweet smokie fruit, The taste has that smoked oak thoughout. A very nice brew.

    Fresh off the shelf, John John lives up to its lineage, in fact i liked it a little better than Dead, or Double Dead Guy ales. Aromas of fruit, lots of fruit, some malt, the usual oak, and vanilla werent obvious. The body was a deep brown, with a nice head and thick lace. Flavor had the usual Dead guy attributes but the vanilla, and oak showed up and all together created a taste which i havent run across or can properly describe, it was a tropical fruitiness pineapple, pomegranete craziness. Whatever it was it was tasty, nice full mouthfeel, slightly sticky. Overall a great job by the Johns!
