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.

hoppy aroma. Red pour with a very quick disappearing head. The hops continue through the flavor. Actually hops is about the only thing I could taste. I am still not so sure about the Oregon OBSESSION with hops. This beer isn’t so bad, but many are ruined by the excessive hops.

Very hoppy for a bock. Goes down easy but then the hops kick you later. Nice dark homey/brown hue. Flavor opens up nicely when poured. Nice bitter finish following a smooth sweet taste.

No bock should have this much hops, people when will you realize that hops are best when used in extreme moderation.

This is definitely a very hoppy bock. Not entirely true to styl, but pretty good. Appearance is a nice golden brown and the nose is of hops. Hints of honey and sweetness in the malt which is sort of like the backbone, then thehops take over with a pleasing bitterness.

Shagnasty (130) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAY 31, 2004
Nice pour great smooth taste, but a little bit too much of a hop finish for my taste. Very little head, deep honey color. Not too bad.

UPDATED: AUG 21, 2004 12 oz bottle at Azure. Poured with no head, fresh tasting though, good hop presence more along the lines of dark ale, a maibock? Re rated and upgraded after drinking at the Electric Factory - 22 oz bottle is best buy at the bar, and on draft at the Old Bay: rich and filling. The 36oz NY strip of beers.
