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.

A very good bock. I was suprised at that I liked it. I could smell honey and brandy. It was on the sweet side but it was very good.

spicy malt aroma, cloudy and rusty in colour, not much head, spicy and peppery flavour with a very sharp finish, quite complex.

Cobra (1100) - - JUL 25, 2003
12 oz. brown bottle. No freshness date seen. Poured out a cloudy, copper color. Aromas of Cascade hops right away. Slight malt aromas, but not much. Slight caramel taste to it. Not much to say here gang, I've had better beers. I wouldn't go out of my way to buy it again.

RaginCajun (320) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 17, 2003
Slightly cloudy dark amber color with a half inch tan head. Malty aroma. Initial taste is hoppy, too much for my pleasure. Aftertase is also too sweet for my liking, but this is a good beer overall. Definitely a beer from the Pacific Northwest.

Clear amber body with medium beige head. Aroma is light, medium sweet, caramel, spicy. Taste is modeately sweet, malty (some caramel, some nutty), spicy. Mild earthy/floral bitter finish. Medium body, pairs well with the gumbo-esque dinner I had.

Diablokev (159) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - JUL 15, 2003
The aroma is light and malty. The apperance is a mid amber with a thick off white head. The flavor is hoppy and smooth. Overall not to bad.

leaparsons (8399) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2003
Quite a sweet beer this one, and not bad for it. The aromas consist of sweet caramel and a hint of fruit. The flavour is fruity, as expected but also has burnt toffee and caramel sweetness. This has a good level of sparkle and warming alcohol to finish. Not bad.

UPDATED: OCT 22, 2006 October 2006 - Bottle from LCBO. Dark amber witha decent sized beige head and lacing. (3+) Lightly spicey notes and mild hops in the aroma, pleasant mildly earthy malt with light caramel notes. Pleasant bitternessis light but lingers with just the right amount of balancing malt (crystal?). Average palate. Solid and quaffable. 7/3+/73/14 - 3.4<P> July 2006 - Hazy orange amber with a small white head that fades fairly quickly. Sweet malt with something a bit different to it that I can not quite place in the aroma. Lightly spicy malt with an interesting lingering tangy malt character. Average palate. Not doing much for me really but its not unpleasant. 6/3/6/3/12 - 3 <P> Nov 2000 - Bottle fromm LCBO in Mississauga. Smells and tastes like malt extract. Not much hops to notice. Bit of dark fruity smell. Big aftertaste... not harsh, but a bit of a kick in the pants! Mine had very little head... not sure if its supposed to, and I’m not sure how old my bottle is. Cool label. Nice amber color. Not bad... Don’t know if I would buy it on a regular basis but I’m glad I tried it. 5/2/5/2/9 - 2.3

roomtempbeer (185) - Franklin, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 9, 2003
Beer pours (in Chimay glass) an orange-golden color with very little off-white head which disapates to nothing quickly. Aroma is a fruity boquette of wild berries, and caramel-honey. Flavor is malty, but then mediumly (mediumly?) hoppy. Hops is an unpleasant characteristic, in my opinion. Strips the mouth dry and replaces it with a paint thinner-bitter finish. Not one for the charts. Sampled at 73 degrees Fahrenheit.

Tried this one at the Abbaye in Northern Liberties, Philadelphia. It seemed to me that the barmaid/owner could care less that she poured an absolutley flat beer and served it to me. Flavor was evident though, I would have bet this was a stong ale. I'll have to re-rate with a 22 oz. bottle next time.
