This one is a bit above average on all accounts. Nice orange appearance with a somewhat sweet, fruity aroma. Quite malty flavor with a touch of hops.

Another tastey Rogue beer. Like most Rogues, this one has a very distinctive flavor. The bottles are good, but it is even better on tap.

For a beer called ’Dead Guy Ale’ I was expecting something a bit more killer, something that would thrash my senses and leave me bewildered like the Shakespear stout. I found this to be the least hoppy of any Rogue I’ve had. Pretty mellow, with a pervasive maltiness - which is typical of bocks, but I was expecting something different. I may come back and re-rate this later, but for now I am left with no great impression. But even a mediocre response to a Rogue beer is usually better than average. ’I’ll be bock’

Deep orange color. Very malty, molasses with a little metallic taste. Very nice. My only complaint with this is that it leaves a strange aftertaste on your tongue, almost like some diet/sugerfree things do. BEST LABEL!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer has a sweet malty aroma. Starts out with a honey sweetness and finishes with a pretty good hoppy kick. Not a typical maibock by any means. I enjoyed the 22 oz. bomber.

Kinda average for a Rogue beer. At least it washes down my pizza well.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2004 Rerate Pretty much the same description all around - except I notice much more of a hoppy citrusy flavor.Very hoppy for a bock, not as well balanced with the malitness. Original 3.9 Aroma - slight citrus to molasses - hard to place - but very present. Appearance - large frothy off-white head - orange color. Flavor - sweet - with a strong finish a nd a slightly bitter aftertaste.

Hazy reddish-orange brew with a thin creamy head. Hoppy smell with hints of orange, though the scent isn’t very prolific. Sweet citrusness to this beer when drank. Some spicyness and a bit of earthyness. Slight bit of peppery bite in there as well. Leaves a nice hop aftertaste. Feels a bit syrupy, or thick in the mouth. Good beer.
