Hobgoblin is a powerful full-bodied copper red, well-balanced brew. Strong in roasted malt with a moderate hoppy bitterness and slight fruity character that lasts through to the end.

Sample-500ML bottle- Poured an orange/redish head. Aroma is fruity and malty. More fruit than malt though. Bitter taste at first, but quickly changes fruity and slightly hoppy. Body is a copper colour. This is a fine brew!

Deep reddish brown with a large head. Good lacing. Nose is malty sweet, flavour starts sweet and finishes dry with some spicy hops. Good name and label for a strong ale.

Smooth, nutty, and slightly sweet. This would have been really good if not for the slight skunk. Past that I could taste some nice roasted malt, caramel and some hops. But the skunk takes it down a few notches for me.

Trappist (286) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 15, 2004
This was very good, but instead of a strong ale it had the bite of an I.P.A. I liked the fact that it did not leave an aftertaste and it cut through the palate, with a very crisp and refreshing flavor. I did not detect any fruity anything with this ale.

ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 15, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 24, 2004 Very nice amber red colour with foamy off white head. Aroma is mainly malt and fruit. Flavor is sweet with hints of toffee. Medium body makes this an easy drinking beer.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 8, 2004
Bottle. Poured clear amber-brown with a small white head that lingered well and left nice lacing. Aroma is roasted malts, and sort of a sour grassiness. Flavor is sweet, little honey and molasses with an assertive hop bite and bitter, somewhat metallic finish. Medium body and light carbonation. Better than I expected.

Britales (56) - Cape Charles, Virginia, USA - FEB 5, 2004
Nice deep red color,nice balance with the slight predominance of strong roasted malt. Mild bitterness with some raisin fruit on the finish! A nice Strong Ale, not quite exceptional.

wildchefbill (245) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - FEB 2, 2004
Pours very dark ruby with almost no head. Aroma was malty and sweet, but no very strong. Flavor was nice. Malty, a litlle chocolate and good fruit. Not much hop in the finish, but a dry fruit aftertaste helps balance. Not much alcohol or body. Very little carbonation. Good flavor, a nice beer.
