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.

Strong, instantly recognizable aroma. Vigorous even. Appearance is nice and clear, dark orange in colour. Taste is almost thrilling, like a punch in the jaw but a tasty punch in the jaw. Agree with others that there’s not a lot of nuance, but the powerful malt and bread impact is tasty. Palate is smooth and bubbly. Very tasty.

Kers en cassis aroma. Smaak prima, maar niet uitmuntend. Wat thee op de achtergrond. Al met al oke maar geen hosanna

maltman53 (386) - Corrales, New Mexico, USA - OCT 24, 2014
Pours cloudy orange with a smallish head. Bread, caramel, but mostly honey on the nose. Low hop profile. Over all, a nice expression of the German-Style Maibock.

6-pack from Biggie Wine & Liquor. Cloudy amber appearance with an off-white head. Aroma of toasted grains, breaded malts, light toffee/caramel, light earthy notes and a touch of spicy hops. Similar flavor, malty and somewhat rich with mild sweetness and light bitterness. Medium body, smooth and balanced feel with a creamy, lingering finish.

Pours cloudy amber with tall white head. Aroma is fruity with light malt hint. Taste is a classic boch with some fruit notes.

ogniskowicz (179) - POLAND - OCT 21, 2014
Piękna miedziano bursztynowa barwa, niezła piana. Aromat zdecydowanie słodowy z nutami owocowymi, skórką świeżo wypieczonego chleba i rodzynkami. W tle alkohol i karmel. Bardzo przyjemny. W smaku zdecydowanie słodowe, ze średnim wysyceniem, mocno owocowymi nutami, i delikatnym goryczkowym finiszem. Bardzo udane piwo.

"dead guy is a somewhat unique beer, and worth a try, but it’s a little harsh for my tastes. i like strong beers, but this has no subtlety whatsoever in the flavors. They’re not bad, just too in your face."
