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.

UPDATED: JUN 18, 2004 ReRate-Even though i really like this brew now, i dont think its a bock still to this day. Tastes like a malty/spicy hopped APA still. Pours a nice orange hue with huge off white head. medium carbonation. sweet malty aroma with some sharp pineyness/spicyness in the hops. flavors are very smooth malts with a long bitter finish from the saaz hops. A very solid beer that you can get anywhere. Again, this tastes like an ale, not a lager. 22oz "bomber" bottled as "dead guy ale" This is not a bock-this is an APA with a little different twist to it. Malt up front-cascade hop middle and a very bitter finish that is hard to describe(saaz?) definately not what i was expecting, but an interesting suprise to say the least.

Pretty tasty stuff. Little head nice color. Alcohol becomes a lot more noticable as it warms, but i guess thats normal.

Bocks are my favorite style of beer and this one is a wonderful bock. A very smooth and rich beer with a great taste.

UPDATED: APR 3, 2007 Very malty, but well balanced with a generous helping of hops. Much like an American pale ale.

Braudog (5902) - Traveling the USA, Missouri, USA - AUG 31, 2002
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2003 Re-Rate: Dark red with toffee head. Hard to pin down malty sugary aroma. Flavor is heavily candied malt. Bittery edge at end. Not as good as a remembered, down from a 4.0 at original rating.

I think a 3.61 Average is a little high for this beer, but it’s not bad.

Aroma of roasted malt, and essence of butterscotch. Red/amber, big fluffy white head. Hoppy taste with fine maltiness. Big mouthfeel, good tongue tingle. Very nice aftertaste like bitter almonds. Terrific!
