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.

Pours cloudy gold with a nice yellow head. Aroma is very malty. Flavor is slightly sweet. Roasted and caramel flavors. A nice pine hop finish balances. Very malty and balanced for Rogue. A very good bock.

A very delicious brew. Pours a nice, cloudy brown color with a nice head. Carmel and fruity overtones. Roasted deliciousness

Sven (229) - Lancaster, California, USA - APR 5, 2004
Amber in coulour with light tan head that doesn't hang around long enough to get to know. Sweet, malty, character with flavor of caramel and dates. Decently hopped leaving a pleasant fruit aftertaste. Finishes dry and sweet.

Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - APR 1, 2004
Amber/brown coloured. Very malty aroma. Quite malty flavour with sweet notes of nuts and caramel. Rather short finish.

0o9i (438) - Reno, Nevada, USA - MAR 30, 2004
Appearance entails little to no lacing(it's crumby lacing) and very cloudy, deep honey colored. Aroma is pretty weak and hard to pick up but sweet malts like honey and some mild hops. Flavor is VERY malty, almost sloppily so like a honey-sweet blast of thick stuff and then a fairly balanced finish of bitter hops. A bit heavy on the malts, but very drinkable and nice.

Light copper, clear body. The head is a pillowy off-white mass that collapses at an average rate while leaving a weeping lattice-work of lace. The aroma is sweet and fruity with notes of caramel. The flavor is rather plain. There is not a whole lot of anything going on. The body is watery. No real hop presence to speak of. Overall a bit of a dissapointment from a usually solid brewery.

This is an interesting beer, not easy to classify and filled with contridictions. The aroma is at once hard to detect, then stings strongly of mal vinigar. It pours a gorgous a gorgeus deep amber, but the head disappears much too quickly. Can a beer's body be both thin and wooly at the same time. Even the maltiness is deceptive -- strong but without the sweetness one normally attributes to aggressively malty beers. The overall effect is mildly pleasing, like a movie you enjoyed but you know if you sat their and analized it, you would end up hating it.

frankR (145) - Davis, California, USA - MAR 27, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 14, 2004 Pours a light brown/red color. Nose is malty, some fruit and hops. Pours with a rather large head. Mine was slightly skunked. Perhaps try it again, unskunked. Rerate: Yep, the first one I had must of been bad, 'cause this stuff isn't as bad as I remember, it's actually quite good.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - MAR 26, 2004
Nice clear yellow-orange with a white head. Lightly fruity aroma with malt. Flavor is malty and full-bodied. Finishes malty with a strong hop-bitterness. Tastes like a sticke-bier.
