2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
I wrote down my impressions of this beer than lost it, so the above ranking is my most generous recollection of scores. I just donít care for this. I can clearly recognize that it is a distinct, quality beer, but I just canít take it. There is something smoky (i.e. smoked salmon) about it that sticks with me unbearably. Iíve tried this several times over the years and itís just not for me.

Had this on tap at Dr. Dremoís. Dead Guy came out a dark amber color with not much head to it, probably due to the bartender more than the beer. The aroma has a pleasant hoppy citrus smell with creamy malt and fruity smell to go along. Taste starts off with a bitter hoppiness with spiciness to it. A nice creamy malt flavor on the back to provide some balance. It has a nice mouthfeel and is very drinkable. Has enough complexity to keep you coming back and it would make for a good session beer

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2004 May, 2003: 12 oz bottle from Bottles, London. I can see why they call it a bock, but I thought it was an American Pale Ale until I came here to rate it. Sticky sweet with a healthy dose of bitter hops. This is obviously the most popular Rogue - 305 ratings. Very smooth and clean. Despite the sweet malt and bitter hops this has little in the way of character or finesse, apart from a sort of plastic barbeque quality. Itís like a clumsy homebrew. [2.1]
Nov, 2004: BBE Jan, 2004. Real ugly when not drunk at fridge temperature. Hops are stale, but this is an old bottle. A strong pale beer with a lot of oily hops. Best drunk cold to keep alcohol flavours reduced. Not to my taste. [2.2]

This was a lot hoppier than I was expecting. Once I got over that shock it was nice and smooth. Took a few drinks to get used to it. Starts dry and finishes even drier.

Bottled. hard to beleive Rogue would market this as a Maibock. Not malty enough and way hoppier than any Maibock Iíve ever had. At first I didnít like it at all, but it grew on me as I continued to drink it.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
(on bottle)Light, hazy, amber color.Not a big nose, a bit of malt, but nothing for a bock. A tad of dried fruits too. Watery mouth, no malts there either and has a dry, malty(at last) finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Reminds me of the flavor you would get if you mixed a Shiner Bock with a Harp. Finishes relatively bitter but not unpleasent. The Little dead guy on the label is an eye catcher but the beer is nothing special.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thic foam that will mellow out and fair share of lacing is left behind. Very hard to smell much in this so that didnt earn points. Flavor is slightly malty with mixed nuts, and has sweet caramel added. A dry and yet weird type of bitteness comes across that didnít statisfy my expectation.

This has a nice amber colour bordering on brown. There is a thin head with good lacing. The flavour is initally a bit sweet with a bitter finish. It has a very nice mouthfeel with good carbonation and thickness.
