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.

cattaneopapa (102) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 18, 2014
500ml bottle. It pours a clear dark amber colour with a small off white head. It has a sweet plum aroma. It reminds me of the Hungarian plum moonshine. Taste: notes of plum and raisins and has an earthy finish. Low carbonation.

BaroneBirra (232) - Gorizia, ITALY - JAN 18, 2014
0.5 bottle. Dark ruby, small creamy head. Faint sweetish aroma. Rich taste, initially sweet caramel and floral hops. Final dominated by torrefied malts and creamy sweet. Carbonation too low for the gravity makes it hard to finish.

Motobashi (66) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 17, 2014
Light caramel notes. Floral scent with a hint of citrus. Deep, clear red with minimal head that full diminished, quickly. Slightly sweet front and moderately bitter, long finish. Slight tin flavour in the finish as well. Light body and slick texture. Minimal carbonation up front quickly diminishing to none. Generally a decent beer. Not something I would have several of.

DJoer (569) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 16, 2014
Had a 0,5L bottle titled: hobgoblin the unofficial beer of halloween 5,2% so im acpecting it is the same as this one. White, slightly brown, coloured medium sticky head, chestnut colour, burned caramel smell a bit maple syrup, fresh low to medium carbonation low to medium bitter warm burned caramel taste a bit dry metal aftertaste

samzim (103) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 11, 2014
Scent of malt, chocolate, and hops. Dark opaque ruby color. Flavours of caramel, vanilla, chocolate, and some coffee. Medium-Heavy body with mild carbonation. If not drank too cold, it’s quite a nice sipping beer.

lesifflebiere (1036) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 7, 2014
Bière rouge-brune surmontée d’un col de mousse à toutes petites bulles. Nez en caramel et en noisettes. Les saveurs sont du même registre, avec une discrète pointe d’amertume en finale, un peu trop discrète peut-être. Plutôt mince, elle est heureusement délicieuse dans les saveurs qui finissent par percer, seulement un peu quelconque mais absolument digne d’intérêt.

BiereLuc (772) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 7, 2014
Bière cuivrée / orangée, légèrement voilée, peu mousseuse et sans effervescence apparente. Nez frais de grains mouillés, un peu caramélisés. En bouche, un peu de noix grillées arrivent à percer à travers un film malté qui offre des notes de torréfaction, à la fois caramélisées et quelque peu chocolatées. Le pétillement est modéré / adéquat. Très froide, cette bière est un rafraîchissement intéressant qui ne passe toutefois pas à l’histoire sur le plan de la dégustation.

The beer description writes the review as this one pours with a beautiful mahogany color, with some head that holds on for a bit. After drinking, I find aroma follows taste with a great malt, sweet, and then bitter finish. Very well balanced, and very smooth. A joy to drink (again and again and again) I hope.
