Used to be a favorite of mine a couple years back but just got bored with it I guess. Had one(ok 3)at lunch today, WOW, It was like finding a long lost friend!
Served in a standard pint it was a slightly dirty golden amber, quite good looking.
Smelled somewhat fruity, but mostly malty, bready.
Taste was smooth and sweet just as I remembered a balancing slight bitterness brought me back to reality,simple but full in flavor.
Mouthfeel is nicely pleasant, lays pefectly on the tongue allowing you to enjoy all the wonderfullness!
Drinkability is stellar, could of stayed there and pounded all afternoon into evening. Picked some up on way home from work, will keep revisitng this old friend with more frequency I believe!

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.
