So, a shameless, surfless post featuring another taste of Irene (thank you WWW) and a parting review of Rogue Brewing's Dead Guy Ale:

Now, On To the Dead Guy- I'm not so sure what a Maibock is, but this is one. Purty good too! Rogue Brewing Company's Dead Guy Ale. With 6.5% ABV and 40 IBUs, this brew pours a knockout honey-amber color with 1.5F head. The smell and taste of nutty malts with an air of hoppiness as well. Nice carbonation with a clean finish. Has a sweetness that allows it to drink smooth with a slight complimentary bitterness...does that make this "bittersweet?" (I swear I'm becoming a hop-head). I've had this on tap at a local tap-house (of course). Good stuff.
