madsberg (11648) - Sborg, DENMARK - DEC 4, 2005
Botted: Orange coloured. Clear. Dense light brown head. Hops, citrus, spices, sweetness and fruit in the nose. This is really promising. Flavour is near perfect. Sweetness, allcohol, spices and loads of hops. Some light chocolate notes. Is full bodied. Is dry and alcoholdense in the end, where a smooth bitterness lingers gengly on the palate. This is the shit for me, and I cant thank BBB63 enough for sending this as an extra. An EXTRA ladies and gentlemen. Mike really rocks as much as this beer.

thank you santa, thank you so much. oh my this smell is fantastic hopped up resin pine with sweet hints, dark fruits hula through my senses but there is some lemon to this too, rasisins, plums, lemons, molasses, brown sugar, and a heapin helping of pineapple. and that is just the aroma. this pours nicely too very dark mahogany that shows more red than brown, yet dark like a wood stain. a smokey cream head that hangs out. the flavor is everything the aroma says it will be but better. creamy lemon fried pie flavor with brown sugar, plums, raisins, syrups, lots of them, maple, cane, boisenberry, this thing has so much going on. the fruit flavors are great, strawbeery, lemonm lime, plum, black berry, banana, and pineapple mix together into a superb alcoholic fruit cocktail. sugary sweet without cloying. the finish gives to the hop side. pine, oh yeah, pine lots of it. but it is not alone, pines good friend grapefruit joins up and tingle all the right senses. some added chewing gum flavor comes out later in this. and there is something that reminds me of brown sugar pop tarts with frosting. a delicious adventure that ends too damn soon.

poursa clear amber hue with a light tan head. Aromas of copper, caramel, old hops and must an a little salt? . Medium to full bodied with flavors of pine, honey, and little floral with a light alcohol burn. a little overrated in my book. but still a great brew.

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 24, 2005
Grassy, herbal hops, pear, pineapple and lychee fruitiness and some alcohol in the sweet aroma. Clear amber-brown with a low, off white head that recedes to ring. Strong fruity flavour with assertive bitterness and an herbal, citrus, grassy hop character. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Its very good, but Id have to say Im disappointed for a Top 50 beer, especially one that I have sought after since I first heard of it a few years ago... Bottle sampled with beerbuzzmontreal, ClarkVV, Goldorak, MartinT, muzzlehatch, Olivier_MTL, Rastacouere and Yowie.

sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 22, 2005
Deep amber color, aroma was piney with an assortment of fruits in the back ground. Flavor was consistent with the aroma, and a very good malt character to it. I loved it, I need to buy more.

brownish red color, off white head. i thought the aroma a bit medicinal. fruity (but not overpowering) flavor with a hint of alcohol. not very complex, but ill see how the bottles i have age.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 19, 2005
Bottle: Viscous pour, coppery amber, moderate off-white head, spotty lacing, lively yet slow to rise carbonation. Sure seems thick. Pine and citrus peel on the nose, slight hop but the pine and citrus dominate. Semi-sweet, somewhat candyish, notes of alcohol. Strong pine oriented citrusy explosion in the mouth. Lingering citrus peel twang well after the exit. Big, smooth, but not as complex as I thought. Perhaps this will come with time? Body and mouthfeel are quite full. ABV is well hidden on the tongue.   Good stuff indeed. Thanks Eric!

My goodness this is great. Thanks for the bottle, npdempse. Perfect head on a red pour that left great lacing throughout. The aromas were very sweet. Cherry, pineapple, pear, peach, and grape. Yes it does sound like fruit cocktail. Molassas and dark cherries were reserved for the flavor. Darker malts came throught there too. Nice hop finish that was refreshing and not biting. What great stuff. I loved it.

TChrome (1457) - Bedford, Texas, USA - NOV 16, 2005
Beer pours clear, ruby red with a good sized off-white head that mostly dissipates. Aroma is dominated by many layers of hops and a significant sweet candy sugar aroma, reminding me of cotton candy. Big hop aroma, very piney, with some serious citrus juiciness, and alcohol. Initial flavor is of big caramel sweetness, then the hops kick in in a big way. Big bitter, citrus, grapefruit juice. The alcohol is fairly front and center as well. I like this, but am a bit unsure what it is trying to accomplish. Good, but not great, and not the awesome beverage I associate with The Floyds.
