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.

UPDATED: MAR 13, 2016 Surprenante couleur rouge orangé, levure au nez, goûts de fruits (pêche?, abricot?), résineux, miel, caramel, Un peu acide. Alcool sur le retour, un peu fade quand même...

Tap at msp airport. Pint glass. Hazy copper with very thick frothy white head. Sweet and grain and slightly spicy nose. Malty, heavy grain, then yeast. Nice finish. Very full body for the style. A bit of a meal. Lots of sugar. To me, an ipa reminiscent version of a maibock. Good stuff. Would be one of my go to beers in this region.

ThreeCats (759) - ISRAEL - FEB 27, 2016
Clear copper color with a off white head that’s impassive at first but doesn’t last very long. Aroma of honey, caramel, and a bit of veggie note. Taste is honey, veggies, and metal. Pretty awful

serjaymz (154) - Istanbul, TURKEY - FEB 11, 2016
11.02.2016 İstanbul, şişe. Görüntü: köpük zayıf, bulanık maun renkli. Küçük parçacıklar gözle görülür şekilde yüzüyor. Koku: tatlı, şerbetimsi.. Karamel, malt, tatlı tınılar önde. Tadım: orta gövdeli, tatlı.. Damakta kara üzüm, şerbet, karamel, malt, mayası hafif tatlı-ekşi bir burukluk var Genel değerlendirme: son tüketim tarihi 1 yıl geçirdiğim bu Amerikan butik blrası damakta tatlılık, ama ve hafif üzümsü ekşi tınılar barındırıyor..

Pesada para beber em quantidade, mas saborosa. O gosto forte e pouco amargo desaparece logo.

migwell (271) - Northampton, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 5, 2016
Bottle poured into a tall tulip. Surprising, almost unique, flavors evident on the first sip. Color of a dark honey, aroma of sweet malt and bread. Very smooth, rounded nut-like flavor. Malty, floral hops, sweetness, creamy texture, quite complex, easy to drink, tastes and looks more like an amber ale than anything else, I would certainly drink this one again.
