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.

Another terrific offering from Rogue’s eclectic collection! A very aromatic pour, a burnt/rusty color and a formidable, honey-laced head. The taste is full and complex without being offensive or overbearing. Tastes of dandelions, strong malts, honey and sourish plum. The finish is full and a bit harsh-- a slight burn, or tingle, going down which all fits well with the overall enjoyment of this beer! After, death cannot afford to be so kind!

This I discovered in Newport and love when in the mood for an intense beer. Very good but a bit overpowering for everyday drinking. I noticed much better in the large bottles compared to regular 12 ounce.

Pours perfect amber color with a nice, lasting tan head. Nose is powerful aromatic hops and creamy toasty malt. Flavor is more creamy malt flavor, floral hops with some nice bitterness, and quince or some type of citrus. There are earthy notes and woodsy as well. Finish is bitter, slightly oily, and very nice. This is very good beer.

Rentalman (103) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 24, 2004
Ruby amber color with a sweet malty aroma. Complex flavors like toffee caramel toasted malt and a bit of Christmas fruit. Really smooth and creamy. A awesome example of a bock Northwest style.

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. I’m 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 I’ve had so far and i’ve tried Stoudts,Troegs,Crooked River and Michelob’s crappy fake amber bock. If you can get this where you live, definately do it !! You’ll 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 can’t identify, almost like a ciggarette taste with caramel.
