Doppelganger (1387) - 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.

Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - OCT 20, 2005
Bottle. (Wobble in a bottle). Red-brown with small head. Marmite, fruit (plums), brandy, dry fnish, low carbonation. Went nicely with a lovely Stilton. Better than the Hogs Back Brewsters Bundle that preceeded it.

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 25, 2010
21/01/2009. Amber, clear, with more of a thick creamy film on top than a head. Delicious ripe fruit esters mixed with orange hop and mild caramel sweetness. Lovely deep hop character nestles in behind the rich sweet (but perfectly attenuated and never cloying) malt character. Looks, smells and tastes gorgeous... this is a great example of the balanced style of beer that the English do best. It could be 3% or 10% but still have this perfect harmony of malt and hop.

I was feeling festive so thought I’d open this. Less than 100 days until Christmas and was feeling a little disappointed that the adverts haven’t started yet. Holidays are coming and all that. Can’t say this made me feel any more Christmassy but it did give me an afternoon wobble. Pleasant enough, strong aftertaste, quite sweet. Right, I’m off to buy my tree.

Rich malty toffee aromas. Some very light hops apparent in the flavour despite this only fairly sweet.

TC2642 (265) - Worcester, Worcestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2004
Quite sweet, apricot taste. Quite bitter and some sourness towards the end grapefruit (?), a little too unbalanced and alchoholic for my taste.

Cask. Called Santa’s Wobble, special for Christmas. Mid brown, a tiny white head. Sweet fruity aroma, apricot, perhaps cherry. A bit syrupy. Hops are present, but the beer is dominated by the alcohol. It was a bit too strong tasting for my tastes.
