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.

12 oz botte. Hazy amber with a medium white head. Has the aroma of wet leather or tea bags. Heavy malt taste with undertones of honey and caramel. Nicely balanced. Slightly bitter finish. Decent

Amber coloured with an ok head. Malty aroma with notes of liquorice. Rich and warming flavour but a bit too sweet for my liking.

The bottle poured a dark amber clear liquid with a fizzy medium-sized white head. The head died quickly and almost completely leaving no lacing to speak of. The aroma is very malty with lots of sweet caramel and slight notes of coffee in the background. The flavor was an initial mixture of sweet malt mixed with bitter hops. As the flavor matured on the tongue it became dry, astringent and more bitter toward the long lasting end.

I loved this beer. This beer has plenty of flavors to savor. Nice malty aroma and flavor with a nice hop balance. I will drink this beer again, again, again, and again. I recommend this beer to anyone looking for a good full flavored beer.

I like a bock as much as the next guy, but this version seems to be a little unbalanced by being a bit oversweet in the mid palate. It reminds me of a homebrew that suffered an incomplete fermentation. Nice color, aroma and all but just could have been a little less sweet.

UPDATED: APR 5, 2005 The more I drink this the more I like it. Pours a nice, cloudy orange/amber color. Hoppy aroma. The first thing that came to mind when I took a whiff of this was citrus, but there’s a specific fruity smell that I can’t pick out. Flavor is hoppy with some soft malt. Mildly bitter aftertaste. Nice. It has a soft feel in my mouth. One of the more interesting tasting beers I’ve had in my opinion. Tasty!

Eructoblaster (3397) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 16, 2005
Bottle - 650ml. Pours a superb copper/ruby hazy body topped with an average off-white bubbly head. Exhales a rich malty aroma with strong hints of roasted cereals, spices and Perle hops. Taste is perfectly balanced and keeps the alcohol pretty well hidden, but it lacks the robustness I was expecting from a Bock. Nice flavors of malt and hops, with light notes of caramel, brown sugar and toasted grain. Decent bittersweet finish. Very enjoyable Bock.

Tap. Poured a dark amber color with a medium tan head. Complex malty aroma. The flavor is a blend of malt and hops with a medium finish. Good brew.

Great color. Malty with a healthy hop bitterness. Sweet on the front with a long lingering rich caramel aftertaste. John Maier is the man!
