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.

3daddict (139) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUN 26, 2005
Poured and aged copper color with very little head. Smelled of malts, sicky sweet yeast and a touch of pepper. Tasted strongly of malts, orange pekoe and pepper with a lingering spice/hop/ash aftertaste. Not surprising that this beer is associated with the Dead. Interesting brew but not a favorite

Sample taken from gilvanblights 650ml bottle. Copper coloured with very little head retention. Caramel and hops in the aroma. Strong malt flavour, some more caramel notes. Nice hop bite leaves long finish. Medium bodied, mild carbonation.

BrewEd (182) - Wilmington, North Carolina, USA - JUN 24, 2005
Bottled: Cloudy Amber coloring with a tiight white head. Sweet caramel malts dominate the aroma. Tight body which gives a full malt taste up front followed quickly by the Saaz hops kick in the back. Nice, drinkable, but not exceptional.

Firemoose15 (567) - Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 20, 2005
Out of a bottle,, aroma mostly malt. Pours a hazy light amber. Taste was ok, toasted malt and pepper which lingered a while. Finish was dry and revealed a slight apple and caramel. Overall okay but Im not jumping for joy.

VTHopHead (1511) - Seymour, Tennessee, USA - JUN 19, 2005
Bomber - Poured a hazy rusty orange-brown color with a thin white head, but good lace. Aroma is sweet and malty. Flavor is also quite malty with biscuit/toast and caramel. Not too many hops, but then the style does not call for much. Finish shows a little more of the hop character with nice malty sweetness to balance. I really enjoyed this...

GuilTTy (728) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - JUN 17, 2005
Hazy amber/orange supporting a small to medium khaki head with a ton of lacing. Very sweet malty aroma with peppery spices, biscuit, yeast, and hops. Expansive flavors with toased malt at center stage surrounded by some dried fruit sweetness, a little toffee and more hops. Alcohol shows up in the sweet but relatively dry finish.

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - JUN 16, 2005
Golden amber in color. Others have been saying little to no head. But mine poured from the 650 bottle with a decent tan head that actually stuck around a while. A slight sweetness in the aroma. Tastes of hops, a little bit of spicyness, nuts and a slight fruit sweetness rather easy to drink in my opinion. I think I paid close to $7 or $8 for this at a pizza shop in PA. Probalby a bit much, but still a very enjoyable beer.

theshocker (329) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUN 15, 2005
650 ml bottle. Poured a nice amber with minimal head. Looks beautiful, average density and small particles. Minor hop smell. Lightly sweet with some alcohol. Surprising lack of flavor. Average finish. Ok but will not buy again.

Sregnar35 (1030) - Rotterdam, New York, USA - JUN 15, 2005
Very good bock, very hoppy. Nice red color, good amount of alcohol too. Nice thing is that the hops are balanced out by the sweetness of this bock styling.

ragesaq (71) - Arizona, USA - JUN 8, 2005
Aroma: Light, malty and sweet. Appearance: A hefty dark golden color, reminds me of light honey. Flavor: Mmm a bock. A little heftier than a doppelbock but still sweet. Malty, balanced, with a touch of apple? Palate: Good weight, good alcohol level, smooth and light but sitll quenching. A little oily in a good way, goes down nice.
