From the bottle this has beautiful colour, deep red-orange, hazy. There is almost no head however. Aroma is very sweet brown sugar and stewed plums, slightly bourbony. Mouthfeel is heavy and soft, with low carbonation, like it’s been hand-pulled from a cask. Very sweet butter toffee, rum & raisin flavours, along with some vanilla and oak as well. Rich, sweet, and a little boozy. Yes indeed, I feel the wobble!

Bottle, 7.5%. Good malty aroma, sweet, dried fruit, orange. Cloudy orange amber colour. The flavour has much of the same as the aroma, dried fruit, some yeast and pepper. Good.

27.5 cL bottle. Pours hazy brown to dark orange with a diminished white head. Dark malty and wineous aroma. Sweet malty and roasted too, mild spiced and smooth hoppy bitterness coming through. Smooth roasted malt flavour into the finish. Light wineous touch.

FatPhil (13867) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 15, 2008
275ml bottle (Utobeer, London)
Deep hazy orange. Sweet fruity aroma - raisin and plum - also some marmite. Slightly fizzy palate at first, but also sweet and thick. Slightly winey taste - fruity plums and treacle. Cakey and a bit yeasty finish.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - JUN 4, 2008
Bottle, from Fin, labeled "Wobble in a Bottle". Thanks mate! Dark copper, small ring of sticky, soapy bubbles. Light caramel aroma, dates, and a whiff of grape flavor--as in the grape flavored gum that 7 year olds think is amazing. Thick sweet rummy flavor, alcohol quite forward, but that actually serves to keep a very sweet beer from being totally cloying, and a sip finishes surprisingly clean. Pleasant sipper, though a little pokey around the edges.

Fin (9596) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2008
Bottle picked up from Westholme, Londis, Goring-on-Thames, Oxon, had this 11-05-08 This was labelled as Wobble in a Bottle. Hazy mid-amber pour with a creamy off white head that quickly departs. Some sherry like notes on the aroma, alcohol is noticeable though doesn’t really detract from the taste, bit sticky sweet at times, some dried fruits, its quite nice. I thought that it was a bit tight at this strength putting it in a 275ml bottle though, I could understand it if it was 10% or above.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2007
A Mes rate: 27.5cl bottle from Kris Wines. How many aliases does this have? Was like opening up one of those Russian dolls trying to get to this page. Anyway, excellent colour. Deep dark hazy amber with a slight off white rim and film. Unusual aroma. Nothing stands out as being odd but it’s certainly different. Strong alcohol and barley with some nice fruit and maybe a little terpentine underneath. Sadly fairly unbalanced and sticky in the mouth. Heavy tangy malt and a little to sweet with a really sticky finish. Clear alcohol. Long yeasty finish. Close, but no biscuit.
