More Double Dead Guy?

Postby IPASlav » Tue Jul 26, 2011 11:36 am

Weren't we supposed to get another 45 cases of DDG? It's still showing up on the search and not as a discontinued product like the other Rogues...

I wouldn't mind trying a fresh batch. I have a 2008 bottle that I'm a little scared of.

Queen's Quay LCBO has them on the shelves. I was in today to get some Red Racer, and I found them sitting near the other summer premium releases. I took two – at least 6 left – not sure how many are in the back.

There were two left about an hour ago. It's worth trying, but not something to get too excited about in my opinion.

There was lots of Chipotle, Morimoto and Orange Honey there as well. These just don't seem to be moving at all.

Crap - while I was picking up the Red Racer, they would have been RIGHT THERE...

well, with 45 cases, hopefully I'll be able to get my hand on at least one bottle, and if not, as a lot of people said, it doesn't sound like they most amazing beer ever. Still - would really like to try it...

Got a few to London, and drinking one now. Pretty rough stuff. Sheesh.

One left.... I grabbed one as I was picking up some Red Racer last night.

I was in the city this afternoon attending a BBQ in the vicinity of the Crossroads LC. I went in there to grab some CC Red Racer (which, AFAIC, is now the best canned beer available in Ontario, WADR to Fullers ESB/Porter, GL Crazy Canuck, etc.) and was surprised to see a lone bottle of Rogue DDG on the shelf.
Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.

They are not showing up on the inventory today (they did yesterday) so I guess they all sold.

I have a few extra bottles available if anyone in the GTA wants to do an in-person trade.

It is a pretty rough beer.

Sweet, cloying, unbalanced ,low carbonation, overly caramel malty. Blech. If you paid $5.00 for that bottle, you've overpaid.

Agree with SteelbackGuy on this one. If you missed this beer you really didn't miss much.
