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.

Beautiful dark amber color. Ordinary aroma, with a hint of hop. The caramel dominates this beer, with some hidden quite good hopping.

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."

rhapsouldize (174) - Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 13, 2005
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.

beeryum (652) - Norcross, Georgia, USA - MAR 12, 2005
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.

entertheiceman (242) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 10, 2005
Thoroughly delicious ale. Bid thick head with agressive pour, copper color medium bodied. Finely balanced and definetly something I could drink on a daily basis.

Fish (440) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 9, 2005
Coppery brown color, very small, light brown. Never had a Bock before. I was expecting something a little more flavorful. But I also didn’t realize this beer was a Bock. I need to taste more bock beers before I can judge this one accurately. It was certainly a balanced taste. A solid beer.

ChrisPants (317) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 9, 2005
Orange ruby body oozing a bit of sweet caramel nosetaste. Body is graciously unsticky considering both the style and the rich caramel and amber malts riding these bones. Clean finish, clean session-able brew. Tastes like a really good homebrew amber ale. Well done.

darkstar (69) - Eureka, Missouri, USA - MAR 8, 2005
Cloudy amber color. pours a small head which diminishes quickly. malty aroma. Lacking any hops, mine was kind of flat. I’m wondering if I got a hold of a bad bottle.

ToolHead (266) - København, DENMARK - MAR 8, 2005
35.5 cl bottle. Served in Nørrebro Bryghus IPA glass. Clear copper color. Moderate, off-white head. Delicious aroma w/ citrusy hops, sweetish malt, and fine balance. The flavor is solidly, caramely malty, fruity, and w/ a firm, bitter citrusy-fresh hoppy finish. Beautifully balanced. Extremely good drinkability. A delicious, tasty, well-balanced ale.
