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.

A favorite of mine, with a rich dark distinctive taste. The label art is very cool, rogue has some the best art out there. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap pour at Rogue in the Portland airport. 16 oz pint glass. Copper in color with minimal head. Aroma is mostly malty with mild caramel and toffee notes. Taste is also leaning towards malt with very minimal bitterness that only pops up at the end. Sweetness of malt comes through pulling some familiar toffee and caramel characteristics with it. As the most noteworthy Rogue offering you can taste why it’s nearly a flagship. Easy to drink without overwhelming the drinker with anything abrasive. Much like Bernie this is a fun dead guy to have around.

Brew_Cat (40) - Athens, GREECE - AUG 11, 2015
35,5cl bottle. Second time having this one. Pours lightly cloudy dark amber with small, creamy, diminishing, off-white head. Average malt character, cookies and caramel taste, average hoppyness, mostly citrus. Hints of butterscotch and toffee. Medium to full body, creamy texture, lively carbonation, bitter finish. Moderate sweetness and bitterness, well balanced, light acidity. A great brew from Rogue, maybe the best I’ve had from them so far. Pity they have a poor distribution where I live.

12 fl oz bottle. Gorgeous deep gold / honey colour with decent cream coloured head which settled to a ring but left plimsoll lines. Gentle aroma of caramel, toasted malt, two fruits and alcohol. Light to medium sweetness and minimal bitterness. Medium bodied, smooth texture and slightly boozy in the finish. Easy drinking. 8.

La notas de cereal con un toque acaramelado son las que aparecen en primer lugar, con un perfil afrutado sutil, pero sabroso, el punto cítrico me recuerda a la naranja sanguina, y remata la faena con un fondo a hierba refrescante, adornada con trazas florales. La intensidad del componente carbónico es moderado y el cuerpo de nivel medio. Aunque esta cervecera tiene esta cerveza no me convence, No está mal del todo pero no es una cerveza de la que vuelva a repetir
