COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dead Guy is a German-style Maibock made with Rogues 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.

This is a great beer. I drank 3 of them within an hour at a restaurant in Lincoln Beach, Oregon. It has a full bold flavor, not watered-down. This is a beer to enjoy, not just get drunk on. It went well with the fish dinner I was eating and I normally dont like to eat while I am drinking beer.

Off the tap, starts dusty malty smell that tickles the back of the throat. It is best served slightly below room temperature. Opens with a nutty start finishes with a sweet malt flavor. Very enjoyable with spicy food. Finishes like it starts. A very well rounded beer.

UPDATED: SEP 28, 2005 Another great Rogue beer. Flavorful and balanced. A beer drinkers beer. Nothing fancy, just a great beer start to finish.

From the bottle.

Pours dark amber with a limited head. Aroma offers raisins and dark bread; the taste is somewhat as expected from the aroma, a slightly sweet, malty ale with fruit notes and a hint of cognac, with more hops than I would have expected from a bock to balance the whole thing out. The palate is sticky, weakly carbonated, and slightly watery.

This was the first Rogue Beer I ever had back pre-RB.com. Loved it then, but now I have had so many GREAT Rogue beers, that this one comes up about average. Still a great beer though when all is said and done.

Bottle. orangish brown with beige head. Sweet, almost fruity flavor with a kick in the end. This is one of my favorite brews from the land of oregonia.

I found this beer extremely enjoyable. Nice roasted malt flavor that easily would go down smoother than the Atlantic City whore sitting next to me in Firewaters. Nice hop taste in the finish.

Very smooth, fruity, and nice color. As with most Rogue products, this is quite tasty.

AHouse (18) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - AUG 16, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2008 Redish brown in color. Not too much head. Strong after taste. Average beer but not anything special. Not the best Rogue has to offer.
