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.

It pours a dark golden colour with a small white head that doesn’t hang around long but leaves some lacing. The aroma is malty and sweet and that follows through on the taste...in saying that there is a slight hop bite and a dry balanced finish. A lovely beer!

esp0r (2135) - 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
