oops, looks like I should go have a beer and hang my head. I like the Rogue stuff too. But again too much for one bottle.

Makes me want to stick a note on the shelf at the store offering to buy the empties from anyone who picks up those beers...

Actually, the double dead guy isn't really a fancy schmancy bottle as far as I could tell. It looks like a regular old 22oz painted entirely in red from top to bottom.

Yep, it is - I was just bemoaning the fact that I want to try it, but not try $10 worth of it. Different bottle, same story as the XS line.

I stand corrected. At any rate, them fancy schmancy swing top bottles still aren't worth 15.00-18.00.

I saw their Old Crusty and an Imperial Stout last spring in the stoneware bottles, $11.99 apiece. I skipped them in favor of Lagunita's GnarlyWine, I bought eight (+/- $4/22oz)and and still have five (plus 2 Old Knuckleheads) aging happily in the fridge. They should complement the keg of Buffalo Wallow BW I brewed.
