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.

ALLOVATE's rating

ALLOVATE (2961) - Perth, - NOV 17, 2012
Finally ventured beyond the void and purchased a bottle of this one, so here goes...
Into a snifter at just on cool. Bright copper with fine carbonation that is hasty in its ascent. Head little more than a wafer thin, compact pad of white that does hold. Biscuity sweet, malty and edged by notes of Ceylon tea, pumpernickel, burnt toast, rolled oats and puffed wheat is the breakfast cereal-esque aroma - drabby and stale. Unremarkable and honestly ho hum on the palate had me asking is this it!? Creamy, frothy, light and unconsuming on the palate. Burnt fruit dominates and is long lasting. Candyish but on the scorched side. Burnt toast, light tannins, overbrewed Earl grey and then its oily in the finish to boot. Residuallly sweet and sticky and generally not much fun to drink. I was up here now I am down there type of beer. Disappointing! ( 12fl.Oz, no date stamp, Cellarbrations Carlisle)

biir (1085) - Berlin, - FEB 13, 2017
At BKL - The beer is rather sweetish, malty, full body, ripe mandarina, boozy finish. There are better Bcke in the world.

ForlornHope (455) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2017
Bottle at home. Pours amber in colour with a thin head and good lacing. Pleasant aroma: malty, nutty and some leafy hop. Slight sweetness leads to a strong bitterness. Creamy, smooth and nutty with fruit and peppery hop. A slight alcoholic glow, dry bitter finish.

budedou (875) - Saint Etienne, FRANCE - JAN 22, 2017
Pours a slightly opaque red. Mild, fruity aroma. Fairly heavy carbonation. Taste has peachy undertones with hint of herbs and roasted malt. This doesn?t really taste that much like an ale, which is probably why I like it all right.

LeoN_ (36) - Freiburg, Baden-Wrttemberg, GERMANY - JAN 21, 2017
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2017 Leichte Trbung. Kupferfarbe, weisser Schaum, bildet sich nur sehr wenig. Gutes Aroma, Orangen und Grser. Bocktypisch deutliche Malznoten: Honig und Karamell. Milder Antrunk, sehr sffiger Krper. Gute Mitten, ssse Noten, feine Malznoten. Abgang krftig, typisch Bock, leichte Sure am Gaumen. Geil!

Vestergaard (1993) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - JAN 12, 2017
From tap at Fermentoren Aarhus. Pours a clear orangy amber with a small off white head. Aroma has lots of heavy, sticky malts, caramel, banana, sweet overripe fruits. Taste is very very sweet, heavy malty and with a tiny bitterness that not even is close to balance this beer. Very intense for the 6,5%, but other than that i havent got a whole lot of good things to say..

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2017 Non ho capito bene lo stile della birra ma credo sia tipo bock. Il malto per poco evidente, in particolare il caramello non l?ho percepito per nulla. Il luppolo non si sente per nulla come aroma ma abbastanza come amaro, aiutando la bevuta. In generale non mi piaciuta particolarmente.
