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.

One good beer. As you pour it develops a good inch head in the glass. Medium to high lacing on the glass. Great carbonation. Definetly a very complex beer. Honey in color and a variety of taste to be had. Worth the price? Well that is subjective. A great palate. This beer is a little too warm in the stomach, but it isn't terrible. Definetly pay the price for one bottle.

Take this one to work with your for a staff meeting ... your boss will promote you on the spot. A spot above the normal locals ... will satisfy any micro palate.

Interesting beer to say the least. Deep copper/amber color with a frothy white head. Tastes more like it's nitrogenated. Nice balance with the hops and malt. Smooth taste with a hint of the alcohol in the aftertaste. Not as bad as I thought!

(22oz)Very nice flavor. Not bitter and a little sweet. This is a very good Bock Beer. Nice billoughy head. I can see why so many really enjoy this brew.

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2004 This was sampled from the 64oz. jug/growler.I'd have to agree w/ the commercial description on this one(deep honey color)Smells of that sweet Rogue malt blend of perfection.The taste just rocks if you ask me.Very malty sweet/not too thick/great use of some lively hops to make this very quaffable and balanced.I slept on the chance to try this one for a good 6 months and I'm glad I waited.I don't consider this their weakest effort.It's the session Rogue(especially for these fall months coming up) The 12oz. bottles just don't taste nearly as flavorful and fresh(3.3).I will try the 22oz. & buy the 2 remaining 64 oz.'s this week.By the way the 22oz.s are better than the 12oz. but the 64 is the bomb & the draft?(wow) Needs more hops and a touch of Co2.

xsketchyx (184) - Oregon, USA - OCT 5, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2004 Really light amber color, ultra malty, with some caramel. Really thin, and not terribly exciting. Not as interesting as most Rogue offerings.

Radek Kliber (6368) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - OCT 4, 2003
I did love that sound, classy aroma this beer has. Substantial malt base mixed up with good hops. Alcohol adds some torque as well. All this is reflected in flavour zone. Maybe here Rouge is slightly less sure of it self. With all its size it misses champion’s heart. Overall still very nice late night brew.

CapFlu (4462) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 4, 2003
(65o ml bottle) Pours a medium, frothy, almond head and an orange-amber body. Slightly tart nose with a nostril full of hops. Pleasant Saaz hops with caramel. Nice stuff!

shintriad (700) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 4, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2005 Nice honey colour, pours a small head, slightly spicy nose, grassy and caramelly notes. Almost no carbonation. Strong, has the characteristics of a true traditional ale. Got this at C’est What in Toronto for 11 bucks, the chintzy bastards. Nice, but worth the price? Never.
