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.

The bomber bottle glows in the dark, in case you didn’t know. This is a tasty concoction that I drank initially because of the kickin’ bottle. (I am somewhat intrigued by skeletons.) Anyway, get past the marketing ploy and you have yourself a very refreshing drink.

UPDATED: JAN 4, 2005 I expect a bit more from rogue... Amber/brown coloured. Very malty aroma and flavour with sweet notes of nuts and caramel. Rather short finish... but balanced well enough.

Amber color with a white head, slightly hazy. Aroma is sweet, very fruity (peach, banana) and caramely, with hops as well. Thin mouthfeel and too much fizz for me. Flavor is sweet at first (toffee-caramel, nuts and fruits) with a much bitter finish. Not the best thing I’ve had, but definitely nice and refreshing.

Bottle. Dark amber in color and slightly hazy. Light and sweet aroma. It starts off sweet (caramel) and hoppy. There’s some hints of roasted malts in there, too. It finishes dry and bitter, with another hint of caramel. This is a good one, and I think I’ll go back for another

I love Rogues stuff, but this on left me feeling "flat", its not bad, but, it should be more coming from Rogue.

Looks great; thick white head on a rich copper body. Aroma is malt-heavy. More sweet malt in the flavor, but there is a notable earthy hop presence as well. Makes for a well balanced, rounded out beer.

Another terrific offering from Rogue’s eclectic collection! A very aromatic pour, a burnt/rusty color and a formidable, honey-laced head. The taste is full and complex without being offensive or overbearing. Tastes of dandelions, strong malts, honey and sourish plum. The finish is full and a bit harsh-- a slight burn, or tingle, going down which all fits well with the overall enjoyment of this beer! After, death cannot afford to be so kind!

This I discovered in Newport and love when in the mood for an intense beer. Very good but a bit overpowering for everyday drinking. I noticed much better in the large bottles compared to regular 12 ounce.

jgentgesdo (679) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 25, 2004
Pours perfect amber color with a nice, lasting tan head. Nose is powerful aromatic hops and creamy toasty malt. Flavor is more creamy malt flavor, floral hops with some nice bitterness, and quince or some type of citrus. There are earthy notes and woodsy as well. Finish is bitter, slightly oily, and very nice. This is very good beer.
