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.

CitizenZ's rating

   AROMA 9/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 9/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 17/20
CitizenZ (26) - Kansas, USA - NOV 29, 2009
Warm golden amber pour into pub glass from a bomber picked up locally yielded only a small head but lots of lacing. Probably my pour technique which doesn’t return much foam. The smell is as rich as any beer I’ve ever tried, strong yeast essences along with a robust carmel and roasted barley. Taste is very bold caramel and malt, a hint of sweetness and bitter hops but a very well rounded full figured taste. Another amazing Rogue ale.

Piwo raczej klarowne nalewa sie z dosc obfita drobnopechrzykowa piana. Dominuja nuty slodowo-melanoidowe z domieszka karmelu i kwiatowosci. Dosc wytrawne z wysyceniem i goryczka na srednioniskim poziomie. Bardzo mi smakowal.

Very decent ale. Dark and bitter. Nice mustiness, good balance between caramelly sweetness and dark citrus spice.

ippopotamo36 (2496) - Rome, ITALY - OCT 2, 2017
Sample at King Arthur in Ciampino-Italy. Copper dark pour with medium low foam. Aroma of ashes, very malty. Mouth is still malty and rough bitter. Not interesting to me.

silencifobic (82) - Sabadell, SPAIN - OCT 1, 2017
On tap at Olut Sabadell. Bright copper coloured with white head. Malt aromas, lightly caramel and nuts. Spicy, not sweet and almost no bitterness. Highly carbonated.

Bread and alcohol with som apricot and a little mango. Nice, a little sweet for session tastes though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

geolgau (417) - Cluj-Napoca, ROMANIA - SEP 25, 2017
Caramel, scotch, alcohol spiciness, toasted bread. Sweet and malty, the alcohol burn is slightly felt on the tongue. Some grassy hops in the finish, but taste relies mostly on malty flavors. Good, nonetheless.

higgsbison (261) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 22, 2017
One of my favorites. Lots of character but very hard to put your finger on what it is. Very strong malt backbone with a long lingering Hoppy finish. A perfectly balanced brew. Also prominent notes of caramel and toffee and biscuit. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
