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.

pours a light copper with a medium beige head. aroma of grass/hay and malt. Nice malty taste. Some mild hop bitter arrives in the middle and goes into a pleasant hop presence on the finish. Not syrupy like many bocks. A really good balanced beer.

tasurinchi (19) - ROMANIA - MAR 11, 2015
Pours with almost no head. More on the malt (caramel, nutty feel) side but with a nice touch of extra hops in the end which is a bit unusual for this style (but expected considering it s made in USA)

Hallstein (232) - Skogn, NORWAY - MAR 10, 2015
Aroma is strongly malty with notes of marmelade, fruits, raisin and slight vanilla. Mouthfeel is nice and slick with a medium amount of carbonation. The flavor is definately malty, sweet and marmelade-ish with some butterscotch and vanilla. Finish has some slight spice, probably from the hops. Definately a really nice beer!
