tmoreau (3712) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAY 11, 2012
Accompanied lunch on the day before GT ticket sales. On tap at the downtown Madison brewpub on Doty, and served to an imp. pint glass with a clear, amber hue, a modest amount of light tan, bubbles & cream head foam, and waves & spots of clingy lacing. The nose was light grain, a little sweetness, a touch of spice, and light hints of caramel and vanilla. A little better than softly carbonated, and medium bodied, the flavor also presented a low hop bitterness, light sweetness, and a subtle, finishing bitterness & dryness. Food complementary, quaffable, and fairly clean.

Growler from hezron shared at Dark Lord tasting
There was a slightly off wheat scent intermingled with hints of orange peels and fruity hops from this amber bodied bock. The flavor was good but not outstanding - I was able to detect caramel, toffee, hazelnut and pine at various stages. Enjoyable but coming from the Dane I was expecting a little more.

1FastSTi (3360) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 14, 2006
Tap at the downtown location tonight. The beer pours to a transluscent chestnut body with a creamy white head. The flavor is toasty/roasty, floral/herbal/Saaz-ish hops. The aroma is floral/herbal/grassy. Honeysuckle. The palate is quite carbonated with a malty mouthfeel.

Silphium (3191) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 24, 2007
On tap at the downtown location. Clear orange-brown body, medium-thick buff head. Toasty, caramely aroma backed by grassy hops. Toasty body with brown sugar and berries, sweet, with candy and medicinal notes. Balanced by earthy, grassy hops. Clean and quick-drinking.

troyc (2870) - Illinois, USA - MAY 17, 2007
(Tap) Pours a light brown color with a small tan head. Aroma features light caramel and grain. Taste includes caramel, nut, and brown sugar. A light hoppiness also comes through in here. Smooth mouthfeel, but could use a little more body.

MIBRomeo (2570) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 2, 2010
Blah overly sweet both in aroma and tAste but worse yet a very fake sugar sweetness that comes off like those crappy pink packets. Avg pal nice appearance downhill from there. I won’t drink it again

Pours a clear darker amber color with off-white head. Floral notes, caramel malt, and some grain on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a nice balance between the hops and malts.

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - JUL 18, 2010
Courtesy of malachi. Bright orangish color. Huge nutty/caramel combo up front. Fades to biscuity/grainy character, hints of fruit. Flavor much the same, caramel and faint fruit character. Creamy smooth mouthfeel. No hop character whatsoever. If not for color would pass for a regular bock.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 22, 2004
Creamy white head, clear dark orange body. Aroma is sweet with strawberry, concord grapes, and maybe caramel. Very sweet taste fruity, again with some caramel. Too sweet for me.
