COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Not what I was expecting from a beer that sometimes gets called a bock. Average palate, quite bubbley. More hoppy than my liking.

A very enjoyable beer, aroma of malt and hops,nice golden brown color, The flavor is crisp, dry, and bitter with a nice sense of malts in the taste as well. I very much enjoy the bitter finish. Excellent beer.

40oz (181) - Newport Beach, California, USA - JAN 24, 2002
Dark orange color with a medium white head that quickly dissipated. Fruity, flowery cascade aroma. Bitter tea and candy sugar flavor. Substantial mouthfeel but not cloying due to the dryness of the hops. Tastes like a good but typical California style ale notwithstanding the fact it is called a ’bock.’

Excellent beer from someone who normally isnt classified a ’hop head’. Small head, deep honey color, strong hop/raisin/fruit taste goin on, slightl;y bittersweet finish. Overall a great NW brew.

Having tried many rogue products, i still feel the rating are a little high on most, but the dead guy ale is pretty good.

my brief websearch on this beer shows it to be something of a hybrid: a bock or oktoberfest brewed as an ale. since i don’t brew ’em and i’m just learning the nomenclature, this could be a sasparilla for all i know, but it’s a typically grand offering from rogue,my favorite domestic brewer. the chesnut color is about pantone 152, like a kestral’s back or the crown of a chipping sparrow. ’cloudy’ suggests variability so let’s call it transluscent rather. i’m guessing my bottle is a tad flat since these reluctant bubbles can only muster a fragile head of 1/4 inch. the saaz and perle malts bespeak raisin and pumpernickle, as inviting as a wink from sandra bullock. it’s sweetish, but not so much that you’d pour it over ice cream or put a paper parasol in it. yay, rogue!
