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.

Sweet at the start. Sweet at the end. A slight hop kick in the middle. Not much aroma. Overall, this is a smooth, drinkable, refreshing beer.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 15, 2005
Copper/amber pour with just a little head. Citrus, some lt. floral, and dark fruits provided a pleasant aroma. Nice sweet malty flavor (primarily caramel) along with a nice Saaz hop balance. Smooth mouthfeel and very-well balanced. Finish carried through sweet malt and some pine. Well-crafted brew.

OlivierMTL (709) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 12, 2005
Couleur cuivrée aux reflets orangés, moyenne quantité de mousse pleinement diminuante ne laissant aucune trace sur le dessus du liquide. Pleins de minuscules dépôts flottent partout dans le liquide. Toffee, citrons, oranges, herbes et douce levure habitent sur une planète rendant hommage au CARAMEL. Maltée et douce en bouche, les saveurs de caramel légèrement brûlé perdurent pour l’éternité. Finale moyennement amérisante bien balancée par le sucre et la douceur des malts. Corps d’épaisseur moyenne, carbonatation discrète mais toujours présente. Bouteille, Bièrepholie, Février 2005.

Pours an amber color... pretty sweet with a malty flavor... it’s smooth then has a gentle bite then goes smooth again... fairly easy drinking with a lingering aftertaste...

kxkeller (32) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 6, 2005
Amber with fading, off-white head. Very sweet, pruny nose. A sweet, malt-dominated taste, followed by a comfortable hop spicyness. Easy to drink.

3.9
ARMed (625) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 2, 2005
Mahogany brown color with a slight haze. Deep dark roasted flavor with a honeylike apricot flavor. Tremendous palate and taste with a beatifully soft delicate smooth finish. Excellent palate with a slight hint of alcohol. Powerful taste and string hoppy feel smacks your tastebuds. This is a a winner of all catagories.

UPDATED: AUG 24, 2005 Got it in a 64 oz. growler. Dark amber color. Kind of sweet, very smooth and malty. Very easy to drink. I’d drink this again any time.

PullMeABeer (203) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUN 30, 2005
Draught @ PH Portland. Pint. Pours a slightly hazy orange/amber. Sweet with a good yeast presence, very drinkable. Great mouth feel and nice blend of great ingredients to create a very flavorful bock. " mmm, that’s bocky!"

MrBunn (2844) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 28, 2005
The "ale" on the label is a little misleading, as this one is sweet and spicy and a little syrupy... has a few similar traits with a nice barley wine. Definitely an intriguing beer that I found myself enjoying much more than the last time I had it a few years ago.
