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.

waveman352 (178) - Saratoga Springs, New York, USA - FEB 21, 2005
bottle. deep amber color with a medium off white head. Malty and yeasty. Full in aroma and finishes very clean and crisp. Very good year round bock from Rogue Ales.

Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2005
Bottle. Caramel, toast, malt and fruit aroma and a slight yeastiness (perhaps similar to yellow snow). Despite a promising start it all gets a bit dull and fails to please.

frankenkitty (1981) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - FEB 21, 2005
Bottle pours a crystal clear deep amber with a creamy off-white lasting head... laced the glass with an interesting giraffe-spot pattern. Lightly hoppy/flowery aroma. Sweet, malty, full-bodied flavour with a surprisingly heavy finish. My opinion changed favorably from first sip to end of second bottle.

verymerrymonk (413) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 20, 2005
Deep amber body with a small but bubbly head. Aroma is sweet, and flavor echoes. There is caramel, raisins, and an interesting smokiness. This really grew on me by the end of the glass.

This is terrific beer. I’m surprised it isn’t rated higher. Good sturdy head. Nice and malty initially and then a pleasant hoppy finish. Good balance between the sweet malt and bitter hops. Going to try this with a NY strip steak next time. I’m thinking this will be an excellent pairing.

bb (7382) - Alamo, California, USA - FEB 18, 2005
Bottle. Rich amber color with a nice off-white head. Toffee/caramel aroma. Rich honey/malt flavor balanced with a spicey hop bitterness. Ends with a bit of a playdough/plastic sensation to the aftertaste, but otherwise easy to drink.

It has light citris notes, it seems to be missing something in the flavor though (needs a little extrta kick for me) The color is a rather light amber.

On tap at Rogue Public House in Portland, Oregon on 2/12/05. Very appealing appearance and inviting aroma. Sweet, malty, spicy and maybe even fruity at times. Full, rounded palate that trails off deliciously. I ended up buying a case (on sale) and carrying it over a mile home. Maybe my new favorite evening beer.
