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.

darkko (99) - Kingsport, Tennessee, USA - MAY 4, 2005
Honey amber color. Very little head. Aroma is malty with floral and (apple?) notes. Taste is rather sweet. Also fruity with a little hint of citrus. Hop character can be detected in the finish rather than on the tongue. Overall a very good ale. I would buy it again.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 4, 2005
Nicely lasting light tan frothy head. Reddish amber body. Flower blossom pineapple and perfume aroma. Nice balanced taste... good perfumey Saaz hop character, good amount of sweet fruity malt. Fruity gets a little odd at times... occaisional hints of candy strawberry and/or watermelon. Good stuff

Magjayran (1378) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 3, 2005
On tap at the Federal in Durham, North Carolina. Clear, dark amber color with a small white head. Sweet malt in the aroma. Very malty flavor with some hops and lots of fruits such as figs and prunes. A classic beer.

JohnBarleycorn (537) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 2, 2005
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 (6174) - 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.
