Self-described as a Maibock brewed with Rogue’s proprietary ale yeast, Rogue Dead Guy is an appropriately malt-focused beer with an ale twist. The aroma is primarily melanoidin-based malts with bready and toasty characters; no discernable hops distract from the appropriate malt focus. The body adds flavors of caramel and nuts to the breadiness, which generates a very pleasant malt complexity. The bitterness is appropriately low to allow the malt to continue to shine with a lingering bready and nutty maltiness. The only downside of all this maltiness is that the moderate floral, fruity esters in the aroma detract from the complex maltiness and a light sharp alcohol is noticable despite being a low-ABV beer.
