I bought my first Rosemary plant online in June of last year. Once it arrived I kept it indoors as an indoor plant and I would take it outside to give it sun for a couple of hours and bring it back in. It struggled through the summer but I kept it watered every other day and it managed to pull through but once fall came, it's leaves started to fall off and the whole body became crisp and brown and I couldn't tell if it went dormant or has died, so I need help to identify it if it's dormant or dead.

Scratch the bark with a knife. If any greenish color shows it is still alive. If not it is dead. Rosemary is an evergreen plant. I suspect you deprived it of enough light as it needs 6-8 of direct sun each day to be happy.

Mine is outside (Southern England), I have three cuttings in pots, a couple of years old now, when it got very cold I brought two indoors, but the outside one is still looking okay.
