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.

beeryum (652) - Norcross, Georgia, USA - MAR 12, 2005
Nice brown pour. Not much of an aroma. Loads of caramel - especially as the beer warms. Hops were light and subdued. Not a bad bock.

entertheiceman (242) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 10, 2005
Thoroughly delicious ale. Bid thick head with agressive pour, copper color medium bodied. Finely balanced and definetly something I could drink on a daily basis.

Fish (440) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 9, 2005
Coppery brown color, very small, light brown. Never had a Bock before. I was expecting something a little more flavorful. But I also didn’t realize this beer was a Bock. I need to taste more bock beers before I can judge this one accurately. It was certainly a balanced taste. A solid beer.

ChrisPants (317) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 9, 2005
Orange ruby body oozing a bit of sweet caramel nosetaste. Body is graciously unsticky considering both the style and the rich caramel and amber malts riding these bones. Clean finish, clean session-able brew. Tastes like a really good homebrew amber ale. Well done.

darkstar (69) - Eureka, Missouri, USA - MAR 8, 2005
Cloudy amber color. pours a small head which diminishes quickly. malty aroma. Lacking any hops, mine was kind of flat. I’m wondering if I got a hold of a bad bottle.

ToolHead (266) - København, DENMARK - MAR 8, 2005
35.5 cl bottle. Served in Nørrebro Bryghus IPA glass. Clear copper color. Moderate, off-white head. Delicious aroma w/ citrusy hops, sweetish malt, and fine balance. The flavor is solidly, caramely malty, fruity, and w/ a firm, bitter citrusy-fresh hoppy finish. Beautifully balanced. Extremely good drinkability. A delicious, tasty, well-balanced ale.

joeyplush (648) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 7, 2005
This is a nice, full bodied ale with a smooth taste. Good appearance and head. The taste and appearance combined with the unique name make this a very appealing beer.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 7, 2005
Slightly cloudy; thin, copper coloring. Small, 1/8" stiff, off-white yet creamy head. Smells like a maibock - sweet, crisp and malty. Smooth, vanilla oak taste. Ginger-malt juxtaposition. Creamy head floats perfectly on top for most of the way down, creeping its way into the mouth with each sip. Has a red ale / Irish ale attitude at times. What alcohol there is in this beer makes itself known. Too smooth and mellow for my favorites list, but a good beer to have when you get home from work on a Friday.

larsniclas (6247) - Billdal, SWEDEN - MAR 6, 2005
Bottled. Redish amber, almost no head. Sweet toffee-aroma. Malty and a bit fenolic; full bodied.

Hairofthedog (419) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 5, 2005
Malty sweetness and a slight citrus note, the aroma was kind of thin. The beer poured a brownish orange color w/ golden red highlights; medium lasting head and lacing. The flavor was malty w/ slight citrus, pine and light fruit esters. The mouthfeel was light and creamy.
