UPDATED: MAR 27, 2006 From 25 oz. bottle into pint glass. Good head, pleasant aroma, though hard to describe. Just the right amount of bitterness, very tasty and a great finish.

StueyD (1566) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2006
A dark, chocolate brown beer with a thickish white head. A strong syrupy sweet malty nose, with elements of citrus hoppiness. The taste is again strong on the sweet malty aspect, the finish is a little dry in comparison, with the hint of hops. (Bottle).

Pours a dark reddish brown color. Aromas of burnt caramel, hint of chocolate, and some nut?. Flavor has a nice lightly sweet malt start, with some caramel, and a touch of smoke.

Poured from a 1pint 0.9 ounce bottle this Hobgoblin is an absolutely clear reddish brown with a quarter inch white head. The carbonation seems to be medium. The aroma is almost non existent, but there a few malt notes to be found. The flavor is about the same. There is just not much there. The finish is clean and quick. A good session beer, but.... Now hold on! I had 2 bottles of this and the 2nd one poured out kind of skunky. I could smell it during the pour. I guess this is not a big surprise for a beer packaged up in a clear bottle. Oh, ick, it even tastes skunky. I guess this is where the overall category comes in. As far as being consistent this brew ainít making it overall.

Served freezing cold with plenty of carbon dioxide. And I mean plenty! A slight bottled UK-beer taste, bit sharp with toffee and a spicy aftertaste. Drinkable.

WesBeerGuy (62) - Rocky Hill, Connecticut, USA - MAR 5, 2006
Faint caramel malt nose. Nice dark brown-amber color, but the head is thin/flat to non-existent. Lovely rich sweet maltiness that fades to a non-unpleasant dryness. Seems even a little tangy 30 seconds later. Not overly impressive, but this pint went down very pleasantly.

I truly love this beer. I like especially the fact that it comes in a larger bottle. Pours a nice dark cherry brown and dispite the slight bitter edge it is quite smooth. Nice caramel and chocolate malt smell.
