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.

copper in color with very little head. Malty, not very hoppy, hints of caramel, smooth, and sweet. a very tasty ale.

steerpike (28) - Greenfield, Massachusetts, USA - APR 19, 2005
Very malty, red-amber beer. Hard to detect much hops, but that is not the point of this beer. Biscuity and nutty, with some light fruit. Bit of warming alcohol presence. Leaves a light lingering sweet-sugary (candy sugar? brown sugar?) aftertaste. One of my favorites from a superb brewery.

The classic ale from the lively yet mad brewer, John Maier! Nutty, Figgy, and definatly fruity taste. Flavor is intense. A definite Rogue classic! An ale I can gladly enjoy at under any circumstances. Could it be Maierbock? Most definatly!

Amber, almost no head. Malty nutty aroma with figs adding a fruity feeling. Nutty and malty in the flavor as well. Nice oily palate.

Malt and caramel in smell. Little roasty and very rich in flavor. Slighty strong hops with very good mouthfeel. Doesnt reallt have any sweetness which you see in bocks alot. But good.
