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.

great beer. it’s not the most aromatic, but the taste is fantastic and it’s a very pretty pour.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2003 amber color with an off-white head; malty aroma, super creamy malty flavor, I don't find the hops over powering, In fact, I find them completely, if not over-balanced by the malts

Another good brew from Rogue. Malty nose with a nice, hoppy flavor. Thick and decently bitter for a bock. I enjoyed it.

Bottle- Nice honey color. The aroma is quite hoppy, as is the flavor. The malt appears about midway then gives way to a hoppy finish. The finish tends to be quite acidic.

Reddish bronze color, looks like orange blossum honey. No head except a small ring of bubbles circling the glass. Malt, toasted wonderbread and floral hop aromas. Malty semi-sweet flavor gives way to a semi bitterness. Finish is bitterly acidic. This doesn’t really fit as a bock. Negative points for hiccups!

This beer is more typical of my disappointment with Rogue than the Imperial IPA, which I’m a huge fan of. Dead Guy is pretty much just that - lifeless, unexciting, slightly sticky malt body with some dank graveyard weeds serving for hops.

Frank (3221) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 8, 2002
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2003 A cloudy, brownish red in color. Hops are nice and citrusy with a floral hint but are slightly overpowered by a sweet malt. Thick, sticky mouthfeel without much carbonation. Interesting but far from great.

Ordered a draft of this stuff. Very undistinguishing. Pretty hoppy but much too sweet which weighs down the tastebuds. I found this beer to be extremely filling - I declined to finish my glass. Has that ultra-generic ’microbrew’ flavor that I HATE - see: any Pete’s brew, all seasonal Sam Adams, any Sierra Nevada, etc. Boring. Bloaty. Bleh.
