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.

Dedollewaitor (14041) - Odense, DENMARK - DEC 26, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2007 Dark orange amber with little white head. Malty aroma of caramel - easy sweet.. Flowery hoppy taste & easy spice. Medium filling body. Overall very pleasant, but not the best Rogue there is! Re-rating july 1st-07. Better than 1st tasting. From 3,4 to 3,7

harrisoni (13881) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2005
650ml bottle from Morrisons. Dark orange clear beer with lasting beige head. Intense US hop nose with hints of chocolate limes. When I say hints I mean completely unsubtle flavours. Really nice in mouth, got good strong mouthfeel with malts and alcohol coming through. Then smooth choc lime finish with drying intense hoppiness. Superb with good lasting flavours

yngwie (13762) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 26, 2007
Bottle. It poured a clear golden, topped by an off-white head. Hops, beef-stock, malt and caramel on the nose. Quite hoppy flavor with malt and beef-stock. Medium to full body, and a balanced finish with pronounced hoppiness and maltyness. A nice beer, not the typical bock, but nice. (070413)

MiP (13671) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 29, 2006
Bottle. Nice, clear dark golden colour. Almost no head. Bonbon aroma. OK maltiness to flavour and medium bitterness.

Theis (13554) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 11, 2007
Bottle (12oz - $8.99) - First newbie tasting club - Lars brought it. Unclear red/brown - white head. Bread, thin, high bitterness, berries, that’s about it !!

TBone (12816) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 2, 2006
Bottled. Nut brown color, small off-white head. Bready malty nose. Malty, slightly citric hoppy, balanced but mild mouthfeel. Some acidity in the aftertaste. Quite boring. Interestring to have an ale which is a bock. Far from maibock.

Oakes (12723) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 7, 2005
Vibrant, hazy copper-amber colour. Earthy, caramelly aroma with faint woody notes. Rich, chewy, toffeeish character. Full body. Smooth malts, toasty and earthy. The cleanliness of rogue’s yeast makes a credible "bock" possible.

Travlr (12341) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 10, 2009
Golden amber with rapidly disappearing white head. Not much aroma, just slight malt. Malty, yeasty flavor with background bitterness, good example of the maibock style.
