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.

Sekemoto (20) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - APR 21, 2015
Pours a dark slightly hazy amber-orange with an average size fizzy off-white head. Aroma of sweet malt, fruit and a touch of hops. Taste is fruity with fresh floral hops along with caramel malt and honey-- sweetness and bitterness are incredibly balanced.

bbertels (209) - NORWAY - APR 17, 2015
Bottle. Caramel to brown in colour, low carbonation, slightly opaque. Aroma is, well, malty with some timid hops. Taste is rich and round, slightly bitter aftertaste. Good mouthfeel. Perfect (or close) beer in the sun!

Pours golden from 12 oz with medium persistent tan head. Malty honey aroma. Complex malt flavor with honey, hints of tangerine/citrus fruit, and decidedly bitter end. Medium bodied with ample carbonation to support malt. Fantastic beer, complex and drinkable though wouldn’t really call it a maibock.

jjsint (1344) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2015
Bottle at the Free Press, Cambridge. Amber/copper, clear with a bit of cream/beige head. Odd aroma: forest berries, bubblegum, pine resin. A whiff of plastic. Not unpleasant, actually quite enticing, but as I say, odd. Taste is a full on malty bittersweet hit. Finish is more bitter, fades slowly, and creates the perfect denouement for this exciting drink. Loved it.

Jabah (199) - Winter Park, Florida, USA - APR 15, 2015
This is a bit hoppy for my liking. I like the hop with certain beers, like an IPA or something, but didnt work for me with this one. Not quite an extra bitter, but pretty close. A good overall beer, and was able to drink it no problem. I just prefer some of the other types that Rogue makes.
