COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dead Guy is a German-style Maibock made with Rogueís 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.

Light brown with a tan head. Aroma is somewhat sweet, with banana and and caramel. Flavor is quite nice, sweet then giving over to a nice lingering bitterness in the finish. Flavor is of toffee and pine, among others. I like this one a lot.

This here is a damn fine bock, plain and simple. Iím not going to get all technical about it, so here goes.....sweet,malty aroma...this tastes like a beer should. Perfect sweetness followed by perfect hops. Nothing too complicated, and I mean that in the best way possible. I will most definately purchase this again, although it is a little pricey at 34 bucks a case! But damn worth it. Best bock Iíve had so far and iíve tried Stoudts,Troegs,Crooked River and Michelobís crappy fake amber bock. If you can get this where you live, definately do it !! Youíll be glad you did....I promise.

Pours clear amber with a quick disipating off white head. Spritzy carbonation. Appley roasted malt aroma. Big flavours. Raisin, oak, tobacco, earth. Leather and coffee. Sweet booze and wine notes. Lots of toffee underneath at the finish.

No head, brown and ruby body. Aroma is plesant, caramel, malt. The bock is differant tasting, it has something to it I canít identify, almost like a ciggarette taste with caramel.

Nice color and aroma, long-lasting head. Strangely, i think the head may actually taste better than the beer. Maybe too malty for me, but certainly not a bad beer.

BeerAteHer (384) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - OCT 9, 2004
Aroma is strongly malt taken from the bottle but loses intensity in the glass. Pours a dark honey color with a little head and average lacing. Nice carbonation and Pepsi mouthfeel. Both hops and malt are quite vivid in the flavor; as an interesting change of pace the hops predominate at the start and the malts dominate the finish. Normally I balk at bock but this is quite respectable for its class.

ricardowess (25) - Sedona, Arizona, USA - OCT 8, 2004
A cloudy amber color with a good long lasting creamy head. Bitter taste strongarms the floral and roasted caramel overtones. Not too hoppy though...

obisbeer (565) - Barcelona, SPAIN - OCT 7, 2004
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 itís another good beer from Rogue.

jefcon (1496) - 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 donít last, quickly souring and leading to a bitter finish. Pine and yam flavors emerge as well.
