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.

Nexxus (261) - Apple Valley, Minnesota, USA - FEB 22, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2004 Hazy amber with a medium diminishing white head. Lightly floral aroma of honey, caramel, cookie, and toasted bread. Medium watery, very slightly syrupy body with a moderate amount of carbonation. Sweet flavor of honey, caramel, and bread with hints of citrus and pine. Finishes moderately bitter. Decent.

Syd (920) - Waconia, Minnesota, USA - FEB 21, 2004
Bottle pours a hazy amber orange with a small head and some lace. The aroma is of malt and some hops. The flavor is quite hoppy, with a good rich malt to finish it out. The palate is rich, yet quite cleansing and refreshing. Overall, this is a unique Bock that works well.

atpayne (615) - Zionsville, Indiana, USA - FEB 19, 2004
A very clear low carbonated beer with a dark straw color to it. The aroma had a mutted hop tone. Tasts of carmel malts and a sweetness similar to honey leave a clean mouthfeel. There was a faint hop bitterness and a hint of a lingering fruit taste, almost tastes like apricot.

JoeMcPhee (8302) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 16, 2004
Thin orange-hued head over a great looking amber-red beer. Very thin lacing. Warm caramel notes and sweet malt with assertive nose of aromatic hops. Perfect amount of carbonation. Slightly sweet on the palate which quickly gives way to a long pleasantly hoppy finish. Very good.

Goblincat (381) - Westland, Michigan, USA - FEB 15, 2004
Pours a nice reddish gold with a thin white head. Smells of clover, honey, hops and spice. Tastes the same as it smells. Not a bad ale.

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - FEB 15, 2004
Hazy amber/orange body, nice creamy head. Roasted malt, chocolate, raisins and plum aroma. Quite spicy and heavy flavor with notes of nut, chocolate and malt with a nice cinammon undertone. Really smooth and nice though quite substantial and heavy.

ztrvz (218) - st paul, Minnesota, USA - FEB 15, 2004
very little aroma. pours with a decent sized head that receded to just a ring and a splotch in the middle. laces the glass well, though. malty, irony, then has an interesting sweet & moderately dry, nutty finish. there are some hops in here, but they aren't overpowering. a well balanced beer, but nothing you're going to fantasize about at work. really sexy bottle, though.

skaughty (643) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - FEB 14, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2004 650ml bottle. Nice copper color with huge head, nice lacing and ample carbonation. The Hops in this bottle were interesting, sometimes showing bite - other times not. Hints of grapefruit and other tangy citrus flavors.

BigBastard (668) - L.A., California, USA - FEB 13, 2004
Nice cloudy red/orange color, not too much in the way of aroma. Tastes like caramel, cherries, spice, and light hops. Very smooth and drinkable. Extra points go out to the bottle design too.
