Dead Guy Ale
“Who cares how time advances? I am drinking ale today” – Edgar Allan Poe. Rogue Beer of Oregon, USA, uses this quote from Poe in their description of Dead Guy Ale. Based on a German style Maibock it was originally created to celebrate the Mayan ‘Day of the Dead’ (November 1st, All Souls Day). If I realized this in advance I would have saved this one for November 1st, but then again I’m drinking ale so who cares how time advances. Now the beer, awesome label and design. The beer pours a dark orange and has a very hearty flavour, the alcohol and bitterness are not overwhelming. Usually I would expect a bit more sweetness, but this award inning beer is pretty good and worth a try. Popular with “Dead Heads’ (diehard Grateful Dead Fans). Don’t really get the whole Grateful Dead thing, but this is a beer blog not a music blog. Must be winter coming with all these strong beers appearing.
