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.

Very good bock, very hoppy. Nice red color, good amount of alcohol too. Nice thing is that the hops are balanced out by the sweetness of this bock styling.

ragesaq (71) - Arizona, USA - JUN 8, 2005
Aroma: Light, malty and sweet. Appearance: A hefty dark golden color, reminds me of light honey. Flavor: Mmm a bock. A little heftier than a doppelbock but still sweet. Malty, balanced, with a touch of apple? Palate: Good weight, good alcohol level, smooth and light but sitll quenching. A little oily in a good way, goes down nice.

ABUSEDGOAT (2565) - California, USA - JUN 7, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2005 Pours a cloudy amber body with almost no head. Aroma is dominated by caramel, but also hints of hops and lighter fruits. A faint hint of raisins and plums. Flavor is almost syrupy and is dominated by caramel, slight bitter finish. Hint of fruit in the flavor as well. Enjoyable.

murawski (160) - USA - JUN 6, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2005 Very nice, rich beer. One of Rogue’s best, in my opinion. Smooth pour, bronze-amber color with slight haze. Flat aroma, but a nice overall beer.

HopsformyHips (113) - Memphis, Tennessee, USA - JUN 6, 2005
Fruity esters. Slight earthy carmel sweetness with a mild citrusy hoppiness. Unimpressive in the palate...well, just unimpressive overall. The bottle is more interesting than what’s in it.

Not a bad beer, nice sweet malty smell, pours dark orange: white head. I taste bits of the forest floor in their, but it’s sweet, so it’s good.

Tom Servo (424) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JUN 2, 2005
Another winner from Rogue. Nice and warm, with a slight hoppiness. Has an overall sweetness about it, but not so much that you think about at the moment. Very nice woody aroma.

Sigmund (6643) - Tau, NORWAY - JUN 2, 2005
12 fl. oz. bottle, trade with maeib. Pours very foamy and fizzy, with a decent lingering head. Deep amber colour, hazy. Sweet yeasty aroma with elements of oak, molasses, butter and hayloft. Flavour has some molasses sweetness, butter, butterscotch, some spices and decent hops, but lacks a fresh and spritzy "bite". Too much butter elements, I guess. Still a beer well above average, but I’m not ecstatic.

Red/brown, no head. Aroma from figs, strwberries, nuts and butter. Buttery flavor, figs, sweet perfume and clearly malty. Some alcohol in the finish.

Stew41 (1909) - Phuket, THAILAND - MAY 31, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2008 August 2008
Remains an attractive looking beer with a clear and rich copper hue. Good lacing too. At the risk of simply repeating myself from 3 years ago the nose remains attractive with soft fruity malts. Mild yet very well done. Flavours are tighter, drier and more bitter. Hoppy early but some sweet fruity malts kick in. Not unlike a UK bitter albeit the malts are more confectionary-like rather than fruity.

(May 2005 3.5)
Rich copper in colour, almost IPA like. Thin head hangs around. Soft sweet nose, nice malt character with a hint of chocolate. Fairly similar in the mouth, kinda like a soft, full flavoured brown ale. Firms up on the finish with appropriate bitterness. Another great example of what a $9 6-pack deliveries in New York. Australia.....bogan birthday beer at $14 (Crown Larger).
