On-Tap at the Rogue public house, from notes
A- A wonderful carmel brownish amber. Has a nice tight white head, and very good lacing.
S- It smells like beer+ A little hard to explain, smells like beer, with hints of sweet malt and fruity hops. But mostly what you would stereotype as "beer."
T- Wonderful malt profile, with a rich carmel and dry bread note playing harmony. In the midst there is a flourish of bitter hops, and a clean sweet slightly bitter finish.
M- Spot on, good carbonation and medium body.
O- Great meal beer, well rounded. An excersize in malt complexity with hop balance in a light bodied ale.
Serving type: on-tap

I was surprised that Rogue Brewing Company's Dead Guy ALE was supposed to be a maibock. It doesn't taste like a Maibock to me. I'm sure it's great for people who enjoy ales, but I'm just not one. I prefer the subtle sweetness of Spaten, Sam Adams or even Gordon Biersch bocks.

Well, after a long time coming, I tried Rogues' Dead Guy Ale. It pours out a nice, dark amber colour, and smells like beer should smell - a nice mix of hops' fruityness, malt-y sweetness, and yeast-y yeastiness. Taste totally follows the smell, with an upfront sweetness and a dry finish. Mouthfeel is light for the colour, but not to fizzy.
All in all, this is another beer that I would gladly drink, but probably not buy again, just absed on the beer alone. Add in the premium Rogue seems to add to all their beers, and it is definitely not a beer I will buy again.
