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.

UPDATED: APR 5, 2005 The more I drink this the more I like it. Pours a nice, cloudy orange/amber color. Hoppy aroma. The first thing that came to mind when I took a whiff of this was citrus, but there’s a specific fruity smell that I can’t pick out. Flavor is hoppy with some soft malt. Mildly bitter aftertaste. Nice. It has a soft feel in my mouth. One of the more interesting tasting beers I’ve had in my opinion. Tasty!

Eructoblaster (3711) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 16, 2005
Bottle - 650ml. Pours a superb copper/ruby hazy body topped with an average off-white bubbly head. Exhales a rich malty aroma with strong hints of roasted cereals, spices and Perle hops. Taste is perfectly balanced and keeps the alcohol pretty well hidden, but it lacks the robustness I was expecting from a Bock. Nice flavors of malt and hops, with light notes of caramel, brown sugar and toasted grain. Decent bittersweet finish. Very enjoyable Bock.

Tap. Poured a dark amber color with a medium tan head. Complex malty aroma. The flavor is a blend of malt and hops with a medium finish. Good brew.

Great color. Malty with a healthy hop bitterness. Sweet on the front with a long lingering rich caramel aftertaste. John Maier is the man!

fiulijn (18423) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 14, 2005
Beautiful dark amber color. Ordinary aroma, with a hint of hop. The caramel dominates this beer, with some hidden quite good hopping.

antisnobJP (275) - St. Michael, Minnesota, USA - MAR 13, 2005
Bottle. Deep cloudy amber with a fair sized cream colored head. Caramelly toasted malt aroma with an old ice cube tray from the back of the freezer smell in the background. Looks thicker than it feels. Has some sweet malt flavor, but an abundance of hops kicks in to balance it out and actually dominate the finish. Can’t west coast brewers let anything be malty? Alcohol is noticeable. Decent clean flavors and pretty drinkable, just not my idea of a Maibock. While it was very drinkable, it was also very forgettable. Nothing to make me say "wow, I should buy that again."

12 oz. bottle. Pours a dark amber with a decent off-white head. Although this is one of Rogue’s most popular beers, it’s probably my least favorite. The appearance is probably the best thing about it. The roasted aroma boasts notes of caramel and malts. The hops are also noticeable...it’s pretty well-balanced. The flavor is forgettable....kind of bland.

Amber color with a beige head. The taste is sweet with a light dry bittter finish. Rather thin.

Nice brown pour. Not much of an aroma. Loads of caramel - especially as the beer warms. Hops were light and subdued. Not a bad bock.
