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.

Panzerfaust (825) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - NOV 26, 2016
355ml bottle from Jumbo Costanera Center. Santiago, Nov. 2016. Pours a beautiful hazy orange with a big white rocky head that diminishes slowly and leaves a gorgeous 3mm film. Aroma is malty, high on melanoidins. Notes of caramel, wood, some burnt sugars, dried peach, toffee, biscuit, raisin and nuts. Very elegant and well layered. Taste is sweet following the same tonality in the flavors. Nice hints of peach, apricot marmalade, well-balanced with grainy and biscuity malts. The caramel is clear but not overblowing. Very, very good. Medium body and carbonation. A really rich, fulfilling "Ale" Bock.

One of my great favourites. Malty and characterful while being quite unique at the same time. Great aroma, wonderful complex flavour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

overtheline (117) - Inverness, SCOTLAND - NOV 13, 2016
Bottle from beer 52. Fruity, malty and hoppy on the nose. Great flavour, very fruity with prominent hop presence. Not had that many Bocks but this seems a bit too sweet and hoppy for the style. One things for sure though, this is a very tasty beer.
