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.

ALLOVATE (2992) - 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)

Draft Rogue dead guy ale. Hazy dark orange with an off white head. Aroma of roasted grains, malt, caramel. Flavour is the same with a long sweet aftertaste. Good!

12 oz bottle shared by ebone1988. The pour is a darker golden orange with a thin ring of white head and no lace as it falls down. The aroma is really malty and sweet. There is a strong caramel going on, but its very bland and plain. The flavor is much of the same. Its god a light caramel sweetness and a lingering bitterness from the hops. There is not a lot going on, and its kind of a bummer. The mouth feel is a little light with a brighter carbonation and a lingeringly sweet caramel and bitter hop on the back end. I dont know how I feel about it.
