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.

Quite possibly my favorite Ale! This has been one of my favorites since back in my college days (Florida State Univ grad. 2001). The pour from the bottle is a beautiful copper color with a cloudy/white head. The aroma is of hops, spice and has a medium body and the aftertaste finished strong. Just the right bitterness - every time I want a quality Ale Dead Guy is what I pick up.

esp0r (2099) - NORWAY - DEC 21, 2014
Bottle from Vika enjoyed at home
Dark copper, quite clear, dense beige head. Smell of caramel, hay, spices and burnt malts. Medium sweet, distinct caramel, quite vinous, almost like port, dark fruits, very good. Moderate bitter finish. Probably the helles bock i’ve tried, but i think it’s more of a crossover to dunkler bock than a classic helles bock

HammerTroll (590) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 9, 2014
Hazy amber color, minimal off-white head. Aroma of honey, floral hops and lots of caramel. Taste is grassy caramel. Some sweetness and bitterness. Well balanced. Thin body, creamy, flat to soft carbonation. Good one.

12 oz bottle--> pint glass. Amber pour, good head. Aroma is hoppy, toasty with an almost pungent sweetness. Drinks dry with notes of pine tar and cranberry. Pretty exotic but still very decent. Stick with it if you're just tasting and have doubts. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
