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 nice deep orange/amber. Good, fruity aromas of cranberry and cherry supported by a solid backbone of hops and malt. In flavour, dark berry fruits perfectly balance with hops, malt and a medium-long bitter-chocolate finish. Excellent, well-rounded mouthfeel. Maybe just a tad too sweet, but otherwise really, really good stuff.

tasted honey and fruit. Very good color and flavor, another from my night of adventurous sampling at the Ale House, with very poor note taking

skisangelo (60) - Collingswood, New Jersey, USA - APR 26, 2005
Pours a somewhat orange tinged amber color. No real head though a good carbonation level. A Malty aroma with just a hint of caramel sweetness. Medium hop bitterness. Good malt flavor. Somewhat dry in the finish. A good beer.

Rastacouere (6166) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 25, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2008 Brightened apricot aspect, covered by a swiftly disappearing white ring. Pretty pleasant floral and fruity aroma around which the secondary flavors center. Mild woody undertones blends well into this fig cake, juicy apricot and plums. Decent bitterness, yet expressive malt roundness closing more onto graham cookies than caramel. Toasty profile, honey and nectar like. Strong carbonation, medium body. Good in every facet and quite distinctive. One of my favourite from Rogue.

Nice dark red colour. Cloudy complexion and a nice tan head. The aroma is sweet malty, with some very subtle hops. The flavour is also sweet, some fruits, pine, malts. Great beer, goes down very smooth with a nice bitter touch. Tastes great.

copper in color with very little head. Malty, not very hoppy, hints of caramel, smooth, and sweet. a very tasty ale.

steerpike (28) - Greenfield, Massachusetts, USA - APR 19, 2005
Very malty, red-amber beer. Hard to detect much hops, but that is not the point of this beer. Biscuity and nutty, with some light fruit. Bit of warming alcohol presence. Leaves a light lingering sweet-sugary (candy sugar? brown sugar?) aftertaste. One of my favorites from a superb brewery.

22oz bottle. A deep copper color with mostly diminishing head and no lacing. Carbonation very low. Malty flavor with a fruity/floral aroma.
