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.

This is definitely a very hoppy bock. Not entirely true to styl, but pretty good. Appearance is a nice golden brown and the nose is of hops. Hints of honey and sweetness in the malt which is sort of like the backbone, then thehops take over with a pleasing bitterness.

Shagnasty (130) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAY 31, 2004
Nice pour great smooth taste, but a little bit too much of a hop finish for my taste. Very little head, deep honey color. Not too bad.

3.4
pobenohne (504) - Northern Liberties, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 30, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 21, 2004 12 oz bottle at Azure. Poured with no head, fresh tasting though, good hop presence more along the lines of dark ale, a maibock? Re rated and upgraded after drinking at the Electric Factory - 22 oz bottle is best buy at the bar, and on draft at the Old Bay: rich and filling. The 36oz NY strip of beers.

AcctError12457 (25) - Hebron, Indiana, USA - MAY 30, 2004
I’m not sure if it’s the style or what, but I wanted more hops. It had a very easy drink to it however. I will come back for more.

3.8
frink (467) - coquitlam, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 30, 2004
Poured an orange/amber colour with a thin head. Aromas of caramel, malt and hops.Nice hoppy flavor with a good amount of malt and a dry finish. A good beer I think I’ll have more!

2.9
screigh (773) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAY 25, 2004
Pours little to no white head. No lacing. Aroma is a sweet malty. Color is a hazy copoer. I don’t know why but I get a Malibu Rum flavor from this, not that its bad , it just reminds me of sweet coconut for some reason. Slight bitter hops palate. Decent beer.

3.7
mardermax (71) - santa cruz, California, USA - MAY 24, 2004
12oz bottle: coming back to rate this beer after trying it numerous times..hazy golden pour, thick head that did disipate quickly, nice wheatish flavor, small hops..slight bitterness, but really flavorful overall.. i say decent
