SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - NOV 5, 2005
Draft @ brewery. Pours a clear amber color with a fizzy white head. Nose is very sweet, some caramel and a light floral aspect. Taste is wonderful! Some honey coated biscuits stand out. Light notes of some malt and caramel. A slightly bitter finihs. beer has a very creamy and grabbing feeling.

Sweet caramel base, very light hopping. Very little flavor of roasted malt. Some vanilla notes. Not one of my favorites by these guys.

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - SEP 24, 2005
Guest tap at the Back Road open house:

Boy am I glad I didnt make a special trip to Munster for this. Without a doubt this is the worse beer ever brewed by FFF. Sweet and malty, no hops, no brightness, no character. Coy and sticky with massive honey overtones. I tried a couple samples to see if it would warm up to me, never happened. Oh well, every brewery has it mistakes.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - SEP 11, 2005
On tap at the 2005 Great Taste of the Midwest: Clear copper pour is covered with a thin white head. Sweet, fresh, authentic bocky German malty aroma. Starts with some sweet caramel and sticky malt with a nice European hoppy balance. A very drinkable, well-done beer.

ElGaucho (2395) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - AUG 24, 2005
GTM. Very grassy aroma. Not much head. Amber in color. Off-white head. Hazy body. Different tasting. Lager qualities. Some saffron notes, Im sure most definitely by accident. Didnt really care for it. I guess every brewer has its experimental brews that dont quite work out.

DrnkMcDermott (3052) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - AUG 20, 2005
Draft, at 3Fs. Pours deep orange with brown in the middle. Thin head. Taste is very grainy, a bit bready, even yeasty. Not a lot of hops, which is a surprise for a Floyds beer. Just a bit load of grainy malts without much roast in them, but a bit of orange taste toward the end. Guess Ill need to try another when the brewpub finally opens and they can serve it in a real glass.

htsprint1 (53) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - AUG 20, 2005
On tap at 3f in Munster. Poors thin light brown with white head. Bready, yeasty, sweet aroma. Thin and easy going down, with a sweet flavor (almost like honey) and lager-like aftertaste. Certainly not over-hopped. Another solid effort in a new style by Three Floyds.

heemer77 (5333) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - AUG 16, 2005
Sampled at the Great Taste of the Midwest 2005. This poured a dark orange. The aroma is oranges and caramel. The is bready with some light toast and nuts. Not much else going on in this hoopy bock.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 15, 2005
Tap @ GTMW. Translucent bronze with a simply dusty grey head. Very unique aroma comprised of caramel, Vienna and carahelles malts. Some honey and vanilla as well. Flavor confirms that its a maibock by honey and vanilla expectations being met 100 percent. Quite a stylistic foray. Caramel lends itself to palate smacking and gently transitions to more of a toffee flavor. A nice, middle range entry for the maibock category.
