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.

Did not enjoy this beer at all. Will try another one down the road to see if it was a bad bottle or what.

One of my favorite beers. A german maibock made with ale yeast. Nice amber color. A very interesting rich flavor with nice aroama. I can buy it in 6 packs locally and you can not get most Oregon beers in Florida but Rogue brews you can.

1 pint, 6 oz bottle in a huge, 48 oz Miller Lite mug. Pours a cloudy burnt orange with smells of caramel and malts. This stuff is quite thick with a real buttery palette. Several malt flavors here with a dry hops finish. Lots of caramel sweetness here. Doesn’t go down very easy; I’ve had some stouts that flow better. Lots of flavor, however, and it really warms you up. The most flavorful bock i’ve had. Would like to try on tap.

UPDATED: FEB 15, 2006 deep honey in color. tastes of pears and caramel. i think this was it. this was the beer that opened my eyes to craft brews and how truly life changing they are. when we had no high gravity beers in this crazy city, this was what i grabbed instead.

Tap @ Naja’s. Nice hazy copper color. Sweet smelling aroma, and a nice mostly sweet flavor with a bit of bitterness at the end. Not sure if this is what a bock is supposed to be, but i liked it.

I rather like this brew. It’s got the sticky mouthfeel and strong malts of a Bock, but is well balanced with a hoppy but not bitter finish. Aroma is full of dark fruit (plum, grapes), chewy maltiness, a bit of cider. Flavor isn’t overly complex but it’s just so damn well balanced... you really feel the alcohol warmth too (which for me in a bock is a good thing) about 30 seconds after a sip, even though its "only" 6.6%.

A very well balanced ale. Nice hoppy flavor followed by a hint of malt. Rogues flagship brew, definitly delicious. Unique amber color, carbonation is mediocre. Drink a bomber and you’ll be feeling swell.

Amber-oange color, with tan-colored foamy head, with sweet caramal malt, roasted malt, nutty, crystal malt, fruity,toffeeish aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with sweet caramel malt flavor,fruity candied oranges with toffeeish accent, earthy soft hoppy note, in a sweet and nice hop finish.
