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.

Hangover (1056) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - DEC 4, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2003 Smells strongly of malt and slightly sweet... smells stonger than it tastes. A moderately rich brew... taste is smooth and malty, with a hint of hops at the end. Pretty much right on for the style. Personally I prefer the hop bite of an IPA, but this isn't bad at all. Defnite points for a kick ass bottle.

Lubiere (9734) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 4, 2003
New sweet malt aroma with some hopiness, hazy red robe. Nuts and chocolate in the mouth, with some of the resinous west coast hops coming out. A certain raspeberry tartness is detected. Always a good beer.

Average light brown bock covered buy a thick off white head. The nectar! One of my favorite (easy to obtain) chillin' beers. Great malts with obvious hop bite.

UPDATED: DEC 5, 2003 Boy oh boy. Did I need to rerate this. I must have had a bad bottle last week as this one was simply divine. Sweet and easy to drink. The bottle gets mad props for inventiveness as well.

Dark orange with an off-white head. Sweet floaral/fruity aroma with lots of caramelized sugar. A little hop spice and cider aromas break up all the malty goodness. Sweet with roasted marshmallow on the very light bitter finish. Aroma is a little more robust than its mouthfeel, making it seem a little watery. Good brew though.

biermonk (265) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 23, 2003
Poured nice very orange wth a full lasting head that left a fair amount of lacing around the glass. Flowers and cirus are present in the overall spicy nose. Spicy and tart to begin followed by a bitter hoppy finish. This one's a keeper.

Bottle: I didn't know the style of this beer prior to pouring and tasting. I assumed by the name that it was probobly an "extreme IPA" something along the lines of Arrogant Bastard. It poured a golden orange hue, clear with a decent head that did not last too long. Malty Aroma, Vienna malts? sweetness with a balanced if slightly flat finish. AHH Bock.(M.A.S.H. reference) This is good drinkable beer. A bit tame compared to the label but 6.6abv is hidden well. Would like to try this on tap, I bet it's awesome.

Came in the 22 oz "Bomber" with the by now famous "Dead Guy" atop a cask label! Wow I AM impressed by the look of this beer! The brew is a hazy amber colour, topped by a small , but creamt, off white head, very good ! The aroma of this beer is not overwhelming, but is well balanced with hops and malts to the fore...smells like fresh rain. Ahhh wonderful taste to this ale! Malty yet not to cloyingly sweet, creamy yet it has bite.Nice taste of honey..and a nice understated hop bitterness at the end. A very nice feeling in the mouth, its smooth and not too dry of a finish. This is overall an excellent beer and very drinkable in my opinion.

Kind of like a hazy golden colour. Little and quick diminishing head. Aroma of raisins (?), which is really nice. Tastes awesome, decent hops leave a nice aftertaste. A great choice, hopefully the LCBO will keep it around.

Kinz (3251) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - NOV 15, 2003
Reddish orange, decent head. Aroma of maple syrup, very sweet malts. Flavors also revolve around said sweet malts. Some hops on the finish add a bit of spiciness to help balance, but also an unfortunate vegetal tinge. Well made, but not my bag.
