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.

Amber color, off white head. Sweet aroma offset by some hops. Sweet malt flavor with a kick of hops which id definitely typical for Rogue. Nice Maibock.

Amber color with a thick head. It has a decent flavor and pleasant aftertaste. Plus a cool skeleton guy on the bottle

DavidP (1747) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 29, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2003 Deep amber color with a nice creamy white head atop, although it doesn't stick around very long. Has sort of a burnt aroma to it, but it's far from unpleasant. The flavor is very nice, with a gentle underlying sweetness with a nice maibock hop bite to it. The aftertaste is gentle, with that same hop flavor. The mouthfeel is nice a silky which adds to this beer's enjoyment. Highly recommended!

very interesting. definitely on my list of coolest names with arrogant bastard, delirium nocturnum etc. I couldn't pick out all the flavors in this one, but I like it. murky dark honey color, and a slyly sweet flavor with a little hop bitterness in there.

Had this bottled in St. Charles, Illinois. Very hoppy, refreshingly bitter. Sweeter than most ales.

labattblueleaf (225) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 19, 2003
I had a 16 oz glass for this. It wouldn't fit. This thing foamed up like a rabid dog when I poured it in. Flavor wise it was a below average ale. I originally gave this a one for appearance but the bottle logo was worth something. Cloudy-looking. Medium brown in color.

Hazy dark amber. Tan head. Aroma of brown sugar, caramel & fresh hops. Medium-full body, somewhat sticky. Interesting flavour of caramel, brown sugar, black teach, cherry & spice. Nicely balanced.
