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.

Koper van kleur met een zoetige geur. De smaak is prima, alleen wat simpel. Prima bier.

LomYst (391) - Rotterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 19, 2014
aroma has malts, caramel and some spicy hops... bitter sweet taste and a bitter malty finish... dry bodied, soft but persistant carbs... nice color and head.. ok bitter-ale, refreshing but a bit boring

CelticJohnny (38) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 18, 2014
Bottle. Pours a dark golden with 1 1/2 off white head. Smells sweet with dominant malt. Tastes good! Sweet honey covered biscuit. Palate is a medium with not too much carbonation. I definitely would drink it again! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

It has a malty aroma with a touch of honey. There are other sweet aromas as well. It is amber in color with a fluffy head that contain mostly compact small bubbles. It has a complex taste that tastes of malts but later touches off sweet notes.

tectactoe (1167) - Michigan, USA - MAR 14, 2014
Tap: Deep amber, nearly brown, capped with a tiny, flimsy off-white head that leaves small traces of lacing behind. Aroma is a somewhat bland mix of spicy hops, light caramel/toffee malts, & a touch of woodsy, nutty undertones. Pretty laid back, not much going on. Flavor is malt heavy, lots of toffee, caramel, & toasted biscuit up front with a big, yeasty back-end. Light spats of spicy, grass-like, bittering hops linger into the toasted nutty finish. Decent beer, nothing to rave over, but certainly not bad.

MattiasA (612) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 14, 2014
Backlog. Tried bottled @ Nya Tröls. Caramel is dominant with a spice from herbs and loads of floral hop-aromas, a hint of sweetness.

Masterkush7 (375) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 13, 2014
Hazy, deep golden, smaller off-white head with a little lace, sweetish bisquity to bready nose, some well hidden herbal hops in the background; almost solid sweet-bitter flavour, medium to full bodied; sweet caramelly and bisquity finish with a tart-hoppy aftertaste and a tinge of alcohol. A chunky Bock, a bit too sweet,
