4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2006 Bottle from Cask & Glass, Tonbridge. Reddy brown colour with lasting beige head. Lovely aroma of christmas cake and intense hop. Sweet and strong, but hop balances it. Spicey/citrus hop is stunning underpinned by brown sugar and dry grainy malt. Finish has more intense hop. My 2nd Hogs Back strong bottled beer and just as impressive. Lots of orange peel, spice and malt. Gorgeous
Re-rate Cask gravity at Red Lion, Snargate. Sweet, raspberry/strawberry fruit is stunning. Then a decent handful of grapefruit hop, but not too much, producing a dry finish. Malt is a little bit syrupy. Bit of yeasty sourness on aroma and then this huge hit of malt, but the hop dryness never lets it get too flabby. Lovely. It took my a good 50 minutes to drink a pint of it and I can honestly say that I felt different after I finished it, to when I started. Wonderful beer. 4.1/5

Bottled. (As Wobble in a Bottle) Brownish orange and hazy, with a beige head. Looks really deliciuos. Hops, a light maltiness, and some caramel in the aroma. Quite volatile. The flavor has a good dash of alcohol, with caramel sweetness and some hoppiness. Fullbodied beer, and a finish with alcohol and hops. (060604)
