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.

Hazy dark amber. Tan head. Aroma of brown sugar, caramel & fresh hops. Medium-full body, somewhat sticky. Interesting flavour of caramel, brown sugar, black teach, cherry & spice. Nicely balanced.

goz (358) - Chelmsford, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 18, 2003
Pours a clear copper with a nice sized tan head that lasts fairly well, and laces quite nicely. Aroma is lightly malty (fruity, plums?), and strongly hoppy (floral, pine, grapefruit). Flavor starts with some dark fruitiness, and ends with a very strongly hopped finish, good bitterness. Medium-full bodied, light notes of alcohol poke through towards the end.

I normaly dont buy a bottle of brew because of the label...but you gotta admit thats a cool looking bottle. Well anyhow the beer inside was very good. strong enough to keep the coors drinkers from buying it, but not so for true ale drinkers. lots of flavors in this one, even a little nutty. Buy it for the label, drink it for the taste

Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 15, 2003
Pours a nice amber with small head that dissapears quickly. Nose of sweet malts. More malt flavors, with a bit of alcohol at the finish. Pretty good bock.

One good beer. As you pour it develops a good inch head in the glass. Medium to high lacing on the glass. Great carbonation. Definetly a very complex beer. Honey in color and a variety of taste to be had. Worth the price? Well that is subjective. A great palate. This beer is a little too warm in the stomach, but it isn't terrible. Definetly pay the price for one bottle.

Take this one to work with your for a staff meeting ... your boss will promote you on the spot. A spot above the normal locals ... will satisfy any micro palate.

haddon90 (1619) - Newport Beach, California, USA - OCT 9, 2003
Interesting beer to say the least. Deep copper/amber color with a frothy white head. Tastes more like it's nitrogenated. Nice balance with the hops and malt. Smooth taste with a hint of the alcohol in the aftertaste. Not as bad as I thought!

(22oz)Very nice flavor. Not bitter and a little sweet. This is a very good Bock Beer. Nice billoughy head. I can see why so many really enjoy this brew.
