COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Red/brown, no head. Aroma from figs, strwberries, nuts and butter. Buttery flavor, figs, sweet perfume and clearly malty. Some alcohol in the finish.

UPDATED: AUG 16, 2008 August 2008
Remains an attractive looking beer with a clear and rich copper hue. Good lacing too. At the risk of simply repeating myself from 3 years ago the nose remains attractive with soft fruity malts. Mild yet very well done. Flavours are tighter, drier and more bitter. Hoppy early but some sweet fruity malts kick in. Not unlike a UK bitter albeit the malts are more confectionary-like rather than fruity.

Rich copper in colour, almost IPA like. Thin head hangs around. Soft sweet nose, nice malt character with a hint of chocolate. Fairly similar in the mouth, kinda like a soft, full flavoured brown ale. Firms up on the finish with appropriate bitterness. Another great example of what a $9 6-pack deliveries in New York. Australia.....bogan birthday beer at $14 (Crown Larger).

FoolishMortal (990) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 30, 2005
Murky dark orange amber. Little to no head. Muted spicy hop aroma with a rich malty undertone. Sweet malt nose, followed by spicy and slightly astringent bitter hop characters. Finish is dry and sweet with a residual floral tone from the hops, witha crisp huskiness. Mouthfeel is medium light, with an excellent drinkable crispness.

BeerRules (243) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 27, 2005
Cool bottle art. Nice amber color with a big whiote head. Sweet aroma, maybe fruit punch? Tastes hoppy, with some citrus and peach flavors. Very full bodied. Bitter finish. Nice carbonation level and well balanced. Nice beer, very drinkable.

UPDATED: APR 4, 2007 pours amber with a decent sized off-white head, aroma of sweet malt, floral hops, alcohol, pleasantly mixed. Flavor is smooth and refreshing, slight hoppy presence, great malt character, some sweetness, citrus, a caramel notes, good body, one of my beers i can always fall back on.

Lizabeth (360) - east falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 21, 2005
Bottle. Amber with a small white head head. Spicy sweet nose. Citrus, bread dough, honey, molasses and dark fruits, this is a mince pie in a glass. Very nice.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - MAY 21, 2005
Poured murky brown with a lasting beige head. Nutty aroma, with some grassy hop notes. Flavour is sweet nutty caramel slice, balanced with spicy hops. Medium bodied, quite soft feel. Nice stuff, but nothing special.

tjthresh (1867) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - MAY 20, 2005
There’s a fire in my mug!!! All sorts of red, yellow, and orange hues. One of the most beautiful beers I’ve ever seen. Scents of caramel, toffee, toast, and some floral hops. Man this tastes really good. Honey rolling over my tongue. Medium bitterness. Rather full bodied, and medium carb. I’m going to score this a bit lower and the overall because its not a maibock if its made with ale yeast. Its probably a bit too dark also, but damn it is good.

crizay (1050) - Brook Park, Ohio, USA - MAY 19, 2005
Draft: This was pretty damn good and very different, nutty flavor with honey and caramel in the background, and very easy to take down, don’t know if too many would sit well in my stomach but one was great.

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 17, 2005
Bottle: Amber, caramel hues, mediocre off-white head, falls quickly, spotty lacing, very light carbonation.   Bready aroma, very subtle dark fruit.   Malty start, smooth yet light, soft fruity notes.   Medium body and mouthfeel.   Clean finish, malty, bready, slightly nutty.   Lingering hop character after the finish.   Not bad, but fairly average.
