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.

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.

I’m not sure if it’s the style or what, but I wanted more hops. It had a very easy drink to it however. I will come back for more.

screigh (522) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAY 25, 2004
Pours little to no white head. No lacing. Aroma is a sweet malty. Color is a hazy copoer. I don’t know why but I get a Malibu Rum flavor from this, not that its bad , it just reminds me of sweet coconut for some reason. Slight bitter hops palate. Decent beer.

one of my favoriate all time beers. Good strong ale, not much in the way of aroma, some hoppy essence, but the gold lies in the taste. It has a moderate hoppy and bitter essence mayched with a sweetness I can only describe as "honey". Its not over powering, only adds to the quality taste of this wonderful beer. PLEASE BE APART OF THE ROGUE REVOLUTION!

One of those classic beers ive had a ton of times and have just got around to rating it. Pours a nice copper color with a great white head made up of tiny little bubbles. Aroma is a nice mix of hops and malt. Flavor is very well balanced. This beer goes down as smooth as drinking skeletons or something, what am i talking about?
