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.

Very nice ale with a cloudy reddish amber color and a nice frothy pale colored head. Nice malty flavor with a slightly bitter after taste. Overall a very good bock beer.

UPDATED: JUL 7, 2005 This is a very good ale that pours a cloudy, ruby color. The nose is pleasant and fig-sweet/hoppy. The tastes are lightly of citrus and piney hops and the mothfeel is a cloudy graininess. If there are fruits in the palate they are figs or plumbs. The smooth, medium mouthfeel leaves a light to moderately bitter tail. This brew was hoppy enough that I thought it was a malty APA. Overall, this is a balanced and superb brew. Perhaps it is just a bit too sweet.

Pours a nice red amber with a little whitish head. Aroma is fruity and sweet with a little bit of hoppiness. Flavor is nice and sweet and smooth with some nice subtle hop finish. Covers the 6.6% very nicely. Overall I thought this was a very good beer.

UPDATED: MAR 19, 2005 Really smooth, malty taste. Slight bitter finish that makes you want to take another sip. Bottle art rocks. I drink this every chance I get

This was legit. amber in color with thick white head that disappeared pretty quickly when poured from the bottle. caramel, butty, malty aroma as well as taste. add some hops to the taste as well. easy slidin down and slightly bitter finish but not enough to make me make a face. parfait.

Reddish brown with a little off-white/brown head. Maltiness and a little hops in the aroma. Flavors of caramel malt and nutty. Moderate carbonation. Smooth drinking with some bitterness in the aftertaste.

bubbleflubber (2069) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JAN 9, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2006 Sweet malty aroma. Pours ever-so-slightly hazy deep amber into the glass, with a decent head that leaves mild lacing. The bitter backing of the beer stands firm against the blend of caramel sweetness and tart fruit notes. Although it honestly feels a bit thinner than a traditional maibock (which is generally heavier in the malt arena), it is decently put together. It is satiating to the palate, with a nice amount of carbonation to lend drinkability (in a session manner). Again, this seems not as "thick" as the commercial classification, but you’d certainly do worse than this brew. Definitely lends the want for another.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - JAN 5, 2005
Pours warm amber with coarse off white head. Malty and minty-sweet hop aromas. Palate pleasantly soft. Quite sweet. Sweet malt flavors with some carmel and fruitiness, and a hop profile that seem to mostly contribute to, rather than contrast, the sweetness. Not going to be a personal favorite, but an interesting and different brew. And as always, Rogue does good stuff.
