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.

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.

JDUB (178) - Venice Beach, California, USA - APR 19, 2005
22oz bottle. A deep copper color with mostly diminishing head and no lacing. Carbonation very low. Malty flavor with a fruity/floral aroma.

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!

rlgk (18851) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 16, 2005
Amber, almost no head. Malty nutty aroma with figs adding a fruity feeling. Nutty and malty in the flavor as well. Nice oily palate.

Bigsky66 (148) - Eau Claire, Wisconsin, USA - APR 11, 2005
Malt and caramel in smell. Little roasty and very rich in flavor. Slighty strong hops with very good mouthfeel. Doesn’t reallt have any sweetness which you see in bocks alot. But good.

2.9
Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 10, 2005
Bottle. Amber colour with a small off-white head. Light sweet malty aroma and a sweet dry light bitter taste. Medium body and a dry finish.

3.5
neocon (34) - Gold Canyon, Arizona, USA - APR 9, 2005
Nice dark amber with off white head. Has a carmel malty taste. Detect a little bit of hops. Finishes nice.

3.6
Oakes (18167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 7, 2005
Vibrant, hazy copper-amber colour. Earthy, caramelly aroma with faint woody notes. Rich, chewy, toffeeish character. Full body. Smooth malts, toasty and earthy. The cleanliness of rogue’s yeast makes a credible "bock" possible.

3.5
1FastSTi (3361) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - APR 6, 2005
Thick, creamy, bubbly offwhite head with excellent lacing. Rich amber body (dark honey). Head dies down and looks like cream of wheat. Slight carbonation in the appearance. Wheaty, yeasty, heavy sweet aroma. Kinda breadish. Floral and grass hops dominate the flavor. Some caramel malts and some mild burnt malts hide under the hoppiness. Palate is mid-grade. The flavor has 2 parts. A mild initial taste then a strong finish.
