COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Regular.
Was 5% - changed to 4.5% early 2008
Traditionally Crafted Legendary Ruby Beer.
Hobgoblin is strong in roasted malt with a moderate hoppy bitterness and slight fruity character that lasts through to the end.
The ruby red coloured Hobgoblin is full-bodied and has a delicious chocolate toffee malt flavour balanced with a rounded moderate bitterness and an overall fruity character.

HighlanderOne (1048) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - JAN 1, 2010
Poured from bottle (500ml). Aroma of burnt toffee and raisin. Red mahogany, large bubbles in tan head. Roasted malt, cocoa, dried fruit, veggies and banana in flavor. Just a bit watery feel. Slight coffee-ish bitterness noticed about halfway through. Improves as it warms. Quite a nice beer.
