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.

No head, brown and ruby body. Aroma is plesant, caramel, malt. The bock is differant tasting, it has something to it I can’t identify, almost like a ciggarette taste with caramel.

Nice color and aroma, long-lasting head. Strangely, i think the head may actually taste better than the beer. Maybe too malty for me, but certainly not a bad beer.

Aroma is strongly malt taken from the bottle but loses intensity in the glass. Pours a dark honey color with a little head and average lacing. Nice carbonation and Pepsi mouthfeel. Both hops and malt are quite vivid in the flavor; as an interesting change of pace the hops predominate at the start and the malts dominate the finish. Normally I balk at bock but this is quite respectable for its class.

A cloudy amber color with a good long lasting creamy head. Bitter taste strongarms the floral and roasted caramel overtones. Not too hoppy though...

Deep nut brown color. Sweet honey, malt , sour notes, and faint hops. Med body w/sweet hoppy finish. Overall a creamy mouthfeel, with flavors of carmel, pine, nuts, and malt. Great session beer.

This is a decent beer to drink but by far not the best. Dark orange/brown color. Quite mild all around. Nothing spectacular but it’s another good beer from Rogue.

jefcon (1446) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - OCT 6, 2004
Burnt orange and umber in the glass, and suprisingly cloudy. Lots of hops on the nose, a mild sweetness from the hops. Big hops up front, but they don’t last, quickly souring and leading to a bitter finish. Pine and yam flavors emerge as well.

HamWBone (4) - Texas, USA - OCT 3, 2004 does not count
Good tasting beer, kinda hard to place it, nothing to over powering. Thick head, beer it self seems flat. Aroma conjured up a hundred diffrent beers i could be drinking into one whaf. Hoppy. slightly foggy brown with slight hint of orange hue. Bottom line to me, nothing stands out. enojyable drink though =)

I have to say....at first I did not like this beer. I prefered some other rogues to this one...i felt that this was the standard rogue, which i still believe it is, but it has grown on me. It has a hearty taste. Its a very malty brew, and I have really learned to enjoy it right from the tap. When I am at the bar and I need to light my fire, I can count on the deag guy.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - OCT 3, 2004
The color is a murky dark light leather. The head is large, creamy and very healthy. Hoppy and malty aroma. Plums, sweet malts, sap and passion fruit. So this is brewed like a maibock but fermented like an ale. Odd. It confuses many people. The taste is fruity,spicy, tender, piney and posseses a lot of malt flavor especially caramel. This is a so-so Rogue.
