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.

Pours a somewhat orange tinged amber color. No real head though a good carbonation level. A Malty aroma with just a hint of caramel sweetness. Medium hop bitterness. Good malt flavor. Somewhat dry in the finish. A good beer.

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 25, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2008 Brightened apricot aspect, covered by a swiftly disappearing white ring. Pretty pleasant floral and fruity aroma around which the secondary flavors center. Mild woody undertones blends well into this fig cake, juicy apricot and plums. Decent bitterness, yet expressive malt roundness closing more onto graham cookies than caramel. Toasty profile, honey and nectar like. Strong carbonation, medium body. Good in every facet and quite distinctive. One of my favourite from Rogue.

Nice dark red colour. Cloudy complexion and a nice tan head. The aroma is sweet malty, with some very subtle hops. The flavour is also sweet, some fruits, pine, malts. Great beer, goes down very smooth with a nice bitter touch. Tastes great.

steerpike (28) - Greenfield, Massachusetts, USA - APR 19, 2005
Very malty, red-amber beer. Hard to detect much hops, but that is not the point of this beer. Biscuity and nutty, with some light fruit. Bit of warming alcohol presence. Leaves a light lingering sweet-sugary (candy sugar? brown sugar?) aftertaste. One of my favorites from a superb brewery.

JDUB (178) - Venice Beach, California, USA - APR 19, 2005
22oz bottle. A deep copper color with mostly diminishing head and no lacing. Carbonation very low. Malty flavor with a fruity/floral aroma.

The classic ale from the lively yet mad brewer, John Maier! Nutty, Figgy, and definatly fruity taste. Flavor is intense. A definite Rogue classic! An ale I can gladly enjoy at under any circumstances. Could it be Maierbock? Most definatly!

Amber, almost no head. Malty nutty aroma with figs adding a fruity feeling. Nutty and malty in the flavor as well. Nice oily palate.
