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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
