Dead Guy is a German-style Maibock made with Rogues 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.

Deep nut brown color. Sweet honey, malt , sour notes, and faint hops. Med body w/sweet hoppy finish. Overall a creamy mouthfeel, with flavors of carmel, pine, nuts, and malt. Great session beer.

This is a decent beer to drink but by far not the best. Dark orange/brown color. Quite mild all around. Nothing spectacular but its another good beer from Rogue.

jefcon (1459) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - OCT 6, 2004
Burnt orange and umber in the glass, and suprisingly cloudy. Lots of hops on the nose, a mild sweetness from the hops. Big hops up front, but they dont last, quickly souring and leading to a bitter finish. Pine and yam flavors emerge as well.

Good tasting beer, kinda hard to place it, nothing to over powering. Thick head, beer it self seems flat. Aroma conjured up a hundred diffrent beers i could be drinking into one whaf. Hoppy. slightly foggy brown with slight hint of orange hue. Bottom line to me, nothing stands out. enojyable drink though =)

I have to say....at first I did not like this beer. I prefered some other rogues to this one...i felt that this was the standard rogue, which i still believe it is, but it has grown on me. It has a hearty taste. Its a very malty brew, and I have really learned to enjoy it right from the tap. When I am at the bar and I need to light my fire, I can count on the deag guy.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 3, 2004
The color is a murky dark light leather. The head is large, creamy and very healthy. Hoppy and malty aroma. Plums, sweet malts, sap and passion fruit. So this is brewed like a maibock but fermented like an ale. Odd. It confuses many people. The taste is fruity,spicy, tender, piney and posseses a lot of malt flavor especially caramel. This is a so-so Rogue.

A nice malt monster. Pours a nice deep orange/red with a small but abrasive head that smells of malt, hops and a slightly metallic scent. The consistancy is dark and creamy, way more than expected from the appearance. They call this an ale, but Id almost classify it as a porter, its quite malty and overall it is quite pleasing. I dont know if Id buy it again, but it was pretty fun to try and show around.

This is a nice, dark ale, for starters. Its nice to have after a long week of insane amounts of work. Kinda nutty with a metallic, bloody twinge. Probably not something Id buy often, but its not bad if you like ales or lighter porters.

Pours dark orange. Lots of malt in the aroma, a little caramel, too. Sweet flavor. Not too bad.

UPDATED: NOV 11, 2004 Maibock, maybe. Not a bad drink, pouring a creamy orange/brown body with an interesting frothy head. Sweet malty aroma, hints of toffee or caramel. Smooth sweet taste. Not much like a bock, but a realy smooth drink. I had a barrel-aged version of this at a festival in Chicago. The lifelessness of that drink caused me to lower my ratings of this beer.
