Dead Guy is a German-style Maibock made with Rogue’s proprietary "PacMan" ale yeast. It is deep honey in color with a malty aroma, rich hearty flavor and a well balanced finish. Dead Guy is created from Northwest Harrington, Klages, Maier Munich and Carastan malts, along with Perle and Saaz Hops.
In the early 1990s Dead Guy Ale was created as a private tap sticker to celebrate the Mayan Day of the Dead (November 1st, All Souls Day) for Casa U Betcha in Portland, Oregon. The Dead Guy design proved popular and was incorporated into a bottled product a few years later with MaierBock as the elixir.

TedE (894) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 13, 2016
355ml bottle into shaker. Sweet aroma of caramel toffee and brown sugar. Murky orange/brown beer with thin film on top. Oily texture, fresh and bitter taste. The finish is burnt caramel and bitter fruit. Very pleasant, well balanced.

ffbot (325) - Oakland, California, USA - JUN 7, 2016
From a bottle, smell of toffee and caramel, big brown sugar and chocolate chip cookie notes. Taste follows, rich and buttery in texture with a long sitting almost smoked aftertaste.

Gespuccian (113) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 3, 2016
Pours dark amber, a little head. Nose is malt, some pine. Taste is malty, maybe graham cracker, with piney hops rounding out the background and balancing out the hint of sweet from the malt. Mouthfeel is slightly heavy, with some bitter and a cleanish finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Blastomorpha (57) - - JUN 2, 2016
Nice amber colour with a cleaner thick but quick disappearing head. The aroma is sweet, full of caramel, honey and malt; maybe a little of ananas. The taste is weaker and more bitter than I expected from this style, expecially in the end. Nothing exceptional. It’s ok, but a bit of a let down.

buddybutch (35) - Nantes, FRANCE - MAY 22, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 22, 2016 Bottle. Almost no head. Really beautiful amber colour. Medium to high malt aroma. Strong barley and caramel flavour. A bit sweet. Light bitterness with some lasting on tongue. Medium alcoholic taste. To me (I am no Heller Bock specialist so maybe it?s one of the style criteria) I see it as a almost barleywine : not as much alcohol, no so malty. But a great compromise between everyday Belgian beer and a great barleywine. Really a very good surprise
