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.

bark (255) - Linköping, SWEDEN - FEB 26, 2005
Bottled. The colour is dark amber; the creamy beige foam disappears into nothing in a rather short time.

The smell got notes of yeast, malt, honey – raisins, some hops, some alcohol, dried fruits (apricots?) and some cream – diacetyl.

The carbonation is fresh and strong (but not too strong) with medium sized bubbles.

The taste is somewhat sourish with a touch of alcohol, roasted malt and a sweet touch of honey and raisins. The aftertaste is a bit sweet with notes of nuts, raisins, dry fruits and a falling bitterness. The rather long and coherent finish got a touch of salt.

A nice beer, but the taste of alcohol spoiled some of the experience.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 26, 2005
Amber, small creamy white head. Fruity and quite sweet aroma of caramel, banana, nuts and crackers with a small hint of hops. Malty toffee flavour, hints of cookies and milky chocolaye. Cracker-like finish.

thehinge (285) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - FEB 24, 2005
Orange copper in color. White head with a decent amount of lacing. Citrusy aroma and flavor....hint of lemon. Palate is medium with a sweet aftertaste. Has just the right amount of hops, too.

richlikebeer (838) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 23, 2005
Malted nose, hints of caramel, possibly some fruit tones. Very cloudy appearance, slight white head, a medium brown color. A sweet taste, malts and caramel. A bitter aftertaste and a little bit watery for the body. The bitterness is a nice balance until late in the tail, when it becomes very strong. I would have to put this in the a little better than average category.

bierfinder (10) - College Station, Texas, USA - FEB 22, 2005
It was a hot day in July and I was looking for something special to keep the liquids flowing. Not a fan of Bock beer, but this is quite good. Rich amber color, nice head that keeps. Not fond of Hoppy bears, but the light aroma here was pleasing. Quite a crisp, well-rounded flavor, gentle in fragrance. A real surprise for a stout/porter fan!

omhper (21761) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 22, 2005
Bottled. Copper colour, brief head. Grassy caramel aroma. Clean, fairly hard mouthfeel. Full-medium bodied, a lightly pleasant touch of buttery malt, generously hoppy with resiny, bitter finish. A good beer, but has very little resemblance to German bock beers.

waveman352 (178) - Saratoga Springs, New York, USA - FEB 21, 2005

Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2005
Bottle. Caramel, toast, malt and fruit aroma and a slight yeastiness (perhaps similar to yellow snow). Despite a promising start it all gets a bit dull and fails to please.
