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.

Hairofthedog (419) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 5, 2005
Malty sweetness and a slight citrus note, the aroma was kind of thin. The beer poured a brownish orange color w/ golden red highlights; medium lasting head and lacing. The flavor was malty w/ slight citrus, pine and light fruit esters. The mouthfeel was light and creamy.

NobleSquirrel (3439) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 4, 2005
Tap. Smell is kind of fruity and definite malt character. Taste comes across as a bock should, fruitiness from the malts, accompanied by some funky fungal flavors. NIce deep brown, though minimal head. A pleasurable session lager.

lamas (1549) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 3, 2005
22 oz bottle. Pours a dull red with medium-sized fluffy light-tan head. Aroma is fruity and nicely balanced of hops and malts. Taste is more on the malty side. There are some initial spices and sweet malts that give way to a bland icky bitterness. Medium bodied. Some hints of caramel in the nose and in taste. Nothing too special at all. Pretty blah.

ChristianSA (368) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 2, 2005
Bottle. Bright, dark copper color with qhite head with medium retension. The nose is like a typical pilsner with hints of frutiness and light diacetyl. A sirupy mouthfeel leads to a rich malty, caramel flavour with crisp hoppiness. It ends with a long bitterness. A good example that "less is more" is not true when it comes to beer.

BrockLanders (780) - Panama City, Florida, USA - FEB 27, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2006 Probably the easiest Rogue to find around these parts. 22oz bottle. Pours an orange color, medium white head. Aroma has honey, mandarins, lychee and peach. Flavor is sweet honey-like malts with blackcurrant and peach overtones. A nice level of hop flavor and bitterness balances out the fruity-yeasty body. The thick chewy mouthfeel melds well with a nice bitterness. I like this beer, even if it isn’t the best representative of the style.

biz82 (1328) - austin, Texas, USA - FEB 26, 2005
Hazy and peach colored with a nice head. Sweet malt and caramel aroma with a touch of smoke. Very fruity and easy to drink wiith low bitterness or hop flavor. Has a sort of soda pop character with a tutti fruiti flavor. Pretty good but not like any bock or maibock I’ve ever had.

bark (255) - Linköping, SWEDEN - FEB 26, 2005
Bottled. The colour is dark amber; the creamy beige foam disappears into nothing in a rather short time.

The smell got notes of yeast, malt, honey – raisins, some hops, some alcohol, dried fruits (apricots?) and some cream – diacetyl.

The carbonation is fresh and strong (but not too strong) with medium sized bubbles.

The taste is somewhat sourish with a touch of alcohol, roasted malt and a sweet touch of honey and raisins. The aftertaste is a bit sweet with notes of nuts, raisins, dry fruits and a falling bitterness. The rather long and coherent finish got a touch of salt.

A nice beer, but the taste of alcohol spoiled some of the experience.
