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.

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!

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.

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.
