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.

kamillozo (126) - POLAND - SEP 18, 2016
Butelka. Piwo barwy ciemno miedzianej, klarowne. Piana koloru złamanej bieli, puszysta, drobna i obfita, dość trwała. Ładny lacing. Aromat nikły, estrowy, lekko słodki, karmelowy, z nutą alkoholu. Smak dość wytrawny, słodowy w typie chlebowym, tostowym i nadal wyraźnie estrowy i ciut alkoholowy. Kontrowany jest wyraźną ale umiarkowaną herbacianą goryczką, pozostawiającą ziemisty posmak. Średnia pełnia, odpowiednie nagazowanie, pijalne.

Hobgoblin poured a dark brown body, amber when held up to the light. Decent carbonation with a thin head that left a little lace. Aroma had hints of banana, chocolate, and malts. Flavor also of spices, chocolate, toffee, licorice, and friuts. Mouthfeel was o.k. with a slightly bitter finish. Overall it was a pretty decent beer and i would try it again.Originally rated on 10/17/08.

Pours clear dark ruby body with small sized, slightly off-white head. Smell of malts, caramel, toffee, and licorice. Herbal. Medium body, softly carbonated. Oily texture with somewhat dry mouthfeel. Mostly bitter taste with some caramel sweetness. Aroma of malts, yeast, caramel, licorice, toffee, nuts and herbs. A bit woody. Long, dry finish. Overall, nice brew. Tasty one.

Piwo lekko metne w kolorze czerwono brunatnym z biala obfita piana. W aromacie subtelna palonosc, troche karmelu i nuty chlebowe. W smaku raczej slodkie z wysyceniem na srednim poziomie. Czuc troche miod, slody jeczmienne i odrobine przypraw. Dosc lekkie i kremowe w odczuciu na podniebieniu. Bez szalu ale rowniez bez wad.

PapaVillum (862) - Valby, DENMARK - AUG 15, 2016
Mahognifarvet Premium Bitter/ESB med pæn offwhite skumkrone på 3 cm. Filtreret/klar og let perlende. Let sødlig aroma af brændt karamel, figen, sveske og lidt brændt malt. Ganske bitter smag, men helt rigtig afbalanceret med en mindre sødme. Noter af brændt karamel og lidt brændte malte. Ganske fyldig krop de beskedne 5.2 % taget i betragtning. Moderat blød mundfølelse qua en let nedskruet karbonering. Konsistensen er olieret, og afslutningen bitter og kort. Overall: Etikettens blikfang gør én interesseret og indholdet er ligeledes interessant. Balancen i denne ESB er det afgørende punkt. Velsmagende. 500 ml, flaske, 5.2 % ABV, BB: 18/06/17, købt i Netto på Roskildevej i Valby. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BillWyce (1009) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 10, 2016
Pours clear red-brown with a 2-finger bone-colored head. Mild aroma of nutty and biscuit malts. Body is a touch lighter than medium. Lightly watery with a dry finish. Nutty malt flavor mixed with a mild note of citrus hops. A bit of a biscuit note at the back.

Evilman (131) - Taverny, FRANCE - AUG 9, 2016
Nice one! I chose this one in a supermarket in Praha during my trip for Brutal Assault 2016, mostly because of the cool looking bottle. Alcohol level is fairly low but the beer manage to have a interesting taste, rather strong in mouth with a decent wheat aroma. Reminds me for some reason of the Fischer beer, but much better of course, APPROVED BY TAVERNY’S BLACK METAL CREW!
