Bottle (Wobble in a Bottle). Clear, red amber- glowing orange. Small head. Sweet malty and fruity aroma. Sweet flavours with fruity notes and a hint of nuts and raisins. Full body, slightly sirupy, smooth. In the end it was not that special.

Maria (10136) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUL 3, 2007
Mahogany red with a huge, golden head. The aroma is spicy, lightly malty and fruity. The flavour is full-bodied and complex, and it leads the thought a bit in the direction of Belgium. It has notes of dark fruit, raisin and plum, caramel licorice, spice and a light hint of grapefruit in the dry finish. It’s a really nice beer.

(Bottle 27,5 cl) Comes as "Hogs Back Wobble in a Bottle". Pours a hazy, dark amber with an off-white head. Fruity, sweetish nose. Rather full-bodied - a bit flat - very pleasant fruity accents - peach? Hoppy finish. Quite pleasant. 120207

JorisPPattyn (7885) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - DEC 17, 2006
VERY aged sample - actually 15-16 yrs, making it even more interesting... Old Armenian brandy colour, no head. Christmas cake nose with lots of alcohol, sweet smelling and a "sourish" Christmas pudding sauce (butter& vanilla). Sweet, cakey taste, a lot of alcohol, higher alcohols, a touch of yoghurt and sultana’s. Slick, alcoholwarming with even fully liqueurish MF. Superbly age beer - which means it must have been good to start with already. Big thanks to Steve Hannigan for a taste of this!

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 25, 2006
Poured from the bottle (Wobble in a Bottle), a very dark orange/ruby coolour with no head. A strong tangy hop aroma with some sweet maltiness in the background. An enjoyable sourness through the mouth, imparting citrus flavours and a little bit of sweet maltiness. Quite vinuous at that strength of course, warm and spicey, with a lingering tingly and bitter finish on the tongue. Will save my other bottle for Christmas.
