COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dead Guy is a German-style Maibock made with Rogues 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.

Golden amber in color. Others have been saying little to no head. But mine poured from the 650 bottle with a decent tan head that actually stuck around a while. A slight sweetness in the aroma. Tastes of hops, a little bit of spicyness, nuts and a slight fruit sweetness rather easy to drink in my opinion. I think I paid close to $7 or $8 for this at a pizza shop in PA. Probalby a bit much, but still a very enjoyable beer.

650 ml bottle. Poured a nice amber with minimal head. Looks beautiful, average density and small particles. Minor hop smell. Lightly sweet with some alcohol. Surprising lack of flavor. Average finish. Ok but will not buy again.

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.

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 (2586) - 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 Rogues 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 whats in it.

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 (6719) - 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 Im not ecstatic.
