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.

The foam is coarse and moderate. Fine small pearl bubbles rise from the glass, releasing good flavors of caramel. Lovely bock with good caramel malt as first impression. Fine nuances of fruit and a lovely and well-balanced hop bitterness contributes semi-dry finish. Nice and tasty bock, which certainly falls in my taste.

Rich malty and hop aroma. Dark Amber garnet pour. Malty and hoppy, flavor is really rich, hops balance it very well. Great malt finish.

jamaty (1546) - Madrid, SPAIN - SEP 20, 2015
Ambar anaranjada, escasa espuma blanca. Aroma malteado y herbal. Excelente sabor de malta acaramelada, perfectamente balanceada con lupulos que aportan notas verbales y terrosas. Cuerpo moderado, perfecta de gas. Moderado amargor. Muy sabrosa.

Fles gekocht @The Beer Tree. Een moutig en licht hoppig bier, rood-oranje van kleur. Fris van smaak. Een lekkere grassige nasmaak. Heller Bocks zijn niet mijn favo bieren, maar deze is wel aardig.

__Rb81 (416) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 18, 2015
Bottle at home (650 ml, best by 08/2015). Pours light hazy orange amber with a fast disappearing head. Aroma of sweet malts, honey, caramel, yeast. Taste is sweet, malty, honey, yeast, light orange, hint of hoppy bitterness in the end, sweet malty aftertaste. Not bad, maybe a bit too old.

Opaque blunt copper-coloured beer with a weak head. Smell is intense raisins, apples with a hint of alcohol. Hint of strawberry, cherries, lemon. Spices. Taste is initially watery sour, then bitter with a hint of zest. Touch of caramel, alcohol. Bitter malty finish.

commonmac (762) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 17, 2015
Tap pour at Rogue in the Portland airport. 16 oz pint glass. Copper in color with minimal head. Aroma is mostly malty with mild caramel and toffee notes. Taste is also leaning towards malt with very minimal bitterness that only pops up at the end. Sweetness of malt comes through pulling some familiar toffee and caramel characteristics with it. As the most noteworthy Rogue offering you can taste why it’s nearly a flagship. Easy to drink without overwhelming the drinker with anything abrasive. Much like Bernie this is a fun dead guy to have around.

Brew_Cat (97) - St. Ives, Cornwall, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2015
35,5cl bottle. Second time having this one. Pours lightly cloudy dark amber with small, creamy, diminishing, off-white head. Average malt character, cookies and caramel taste, average hoppyness, mostly citrus. Hints of butterscotch and toffee. Medium to full body, creamy texture, lively carbonation, bitter finish. Moderate sweetness and bitterness, well balanced, light acidity. A great brew from Rogue, maybe the best I’ve had from them so far. Pity they have a poor distribution where I live.
