Nuffield (4083) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 12, 2002
Reminiscent in many ways of a Belgian ale (though not in texture, in which it is much more an English ale), but with a lot of intrusive elements. Syrupy, medicinal quality, showing its alcohol much more than desirable. Some hints of burnt cinnamon or other autumnal flavors. (bottle)

rauchbier (3808) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2003
Bottle conditioned. Ruby red, low head and condition. Aromas are muted but some malt is apparent, becoming more spicy in the mouth along with fruit. Full bodied and oily with a chalky bitter finish and a tingle of alcohol.

FrankJohansen (3617) - Sabro, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2006
Orange colour with a medium mostly lasting orangish head. Powerful aroma and great taste of bitter hops with some sweetness. Nice palate.

tommann (3387) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2010
275ml bottle. Pours a hazy amber with no head at all. Aroma is stewed apples, yeasty caramel malt and some alcohol. Some malt to start. Sweet malty finish with medium bitterness. A bit flat and lifeless.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 2, 2007
Bottled as Wobble in the Bottle.at Monks Café, Stockholm. Hazy reddish orange colour, small bubbly foam. No visible carbonation. Big malty and fairly dry aroma of figs, dried apricots, coconuts, rum and tart cherries. Full-bodied and medium-sweet flavour of figs, nuts, coconuts, wood raisins and alcohol. Hot finish of orange-peels, almonds, pepper and alcohol. A classy English Strong.

Vignale (3374) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 30, 2010
Stark strong ale som hette Wobble in a bottle när jag drack den. Söt, men ändå stramt syrlig som en engelsk stark cider. Skulle gärna ha ett par sådana här på lager.

evergreen0199 (3030) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2010
A 3 year old bottle from the brewery (also had this on cask a couple of times at the Shepherd and Flock pub on the roundabout in Farnham, Surrey). An amber/red/ruby coloured pour with a medium beige head. Sweet, boozy, fruity aroma. Tastes sweet, dark fruit/plums, spice, malty, brandy like christmas cake. A warming festive treat, lovely stuff from Hogs Back.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - MAY 8, 2007
Bottle. Amber colour with a nice fine head. Aroma of medicin and sweet malt. Also flavour of medicin, malt and hints of caramel. Ends up with a sweet malty finish.

pivo (2667) - GERMANY - NOV 10, 2004
Great name, from an average brew. Fruity cherry nose with some apricot. Auburn color and a flat scumy head. Toasted malt with some raisin or fig. Mouth filling dryness but a dull hop character. Thin body but lots of alcohol through the entire profile. Good for a British beer but still something missing...

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - APR 17, 2005
Hazy amber color, small head. Sweet malt and grass aroma with some spices and anise hints. Mostly sweet and spicy flavor with liquorice notes. Quite full and different.
