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.

Fruity flavor with hoppiness. Reminiscent of Mac and Jack African and similar NW microbrews.

Quite wonderful beer. Has a little more hop flavor to it than other bocks. Not only is the label cool, but Rogue Dead Guy Ale is a wonderful bock.

Aurelius (4174) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 8, 2001
Malty aroma. Slightly cloudy orangish, creamy head. Good palate. An odd (but not unpleasant), dry grainy/vegetable flavor. Trailing bitter.Velvety palate. Recommend with Italian food.

I’d like it better if the hops didn’t dominate.

’Dead Guy’ not what I expected -- nice orange amber hue, huge head that faded too quickly. It had a nice front -- fruity taste of apricots, but then the back end was overboozed and unpleasantly bitter. It was a decent experience, but I think I will spend my $9 a six on something else next time.

VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 12, 2001
Fruity, malty with a nice hop balance. The ABV is apparent after a few sips. Nicely done.
