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.

There’s a fire in my mug!!! All sorts of red, yellow, and orange hues. One of the most beautiful beers I’ve ever seen. Scents of caramel, toffee, toast, and some floral hops. Man this tastes really good. Honey rolling over my tongue. Medium bitterness. Rather full bodied, and medium carb. I’m going to score this a bit lower and the overall because its not a maibock if its made with ale yeast. Its probably a bit too dark also, but damn it is good.

crizay (1050) - Brook Park, Ohio, USA - MAY 19, 2005
Draft: This was pretty damn good and very different, nutty flavor with honey and caramel in the background, and very easy to take down, don’t know if too many would sit well in my stomach but one was great.

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 17, 2005
Bottle: Amber, caramel hues, mediocre off-white head, falls quickly, spotty lacing, very light carbonation.   Bready aroma, very subtle dark fruit.   Malty start, smooth yet light, soft fruity notes.   Medium body and mouthfeel.   Clean finish, malty, bready, slightly nutty.   Lingering hop character after the finish.   Not bad, but fairly average.

CampbellWilson (533) - SCOTLAND - MAY 16, 2005
Bottle from onlyfinebeer. I really like these rogue beers. There’s a house character from the yeast, kind of an earthy, toasty, salty kind of thing. This one adds a bit of smoke and caramel to the aroma, good body, good earthy bitter finish. Maibock? Okay, if you say so.

Gurst (338) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - MAY 15, 2005
Pours a very nice copper color, strong aroma of light fruit, smoke, and a little alcohol. Initial flavor has a slight bite to it, this then fades to a mellow smokiness. Tart fruit flavors throughout: Peach, apple, and lemon. Some floral in the end. Mouthfel is suprisingly thin, flavors mash together unexpectedly.

Bottle. Pours a brownish-red hazy color. Smells of sweet toffee and caramel malt, and wet hair. Tastes of sweet bread, toffee, and caramel malt. Very little hop balance. Decent beer.

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 10, 2005
Pours a rich copper witha thin ivory head. Smells of pale malt and lightly fruity yeast. Light hoppy aromas. Taste is quite fruity and malty. Yeasty and sweet pale malt. Lots of floral hops up front with an understated but strident hoppy bitterness in the finish. Medium bodied with a nice bitter aftertaste. Pretty good but I thought I would like this more.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - MAY 10, 2005
Pours copper with a decent head and carbonation. Head settles back to about 1/4 of an inch and remains and laces decently. Aroma is caramel and bread and a touch of hops. First sip and you can tell that this beer has body for a bock. Some definite caramel malts coming through quite sweet yet balanced well with hops that give it just a touch of fruit taste on the back of each sip. A very simple brew yet a smooth drinker for a session. On the palate this is pretty creamy and less carbonated than I originally thought by the bubbles. As usual Rogue knows what beer drinkers want. I like this one and will reach for it again soon!
