Clear dark brown body, small fizzy white head with slight lacing. Toasty crystal malt nose. Alcohol comes through immediately in the flavor along with sweet crystal malts, molasses / caramel. Aftertaste is very strong combo of the aforementioned. Full bodied, flat mouthfeel with lasting slighty bitter finish.

Bottle shared with McTapps. Pours in a nice dark red to brown with small head. Nose is a bit caramel mixed with alcohol. Taste is complex with a bit malt and caramel. A good goblin beer. Surprisingly this one is not better than the hobgoblin which has less alcohol.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
THOUGHTS: Nice and fruity. Also rather malty. Fairly smooth and rather British.
TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured an ever so slightly hazy, medium, slightly brownish, orangey amber with a small, off-white head that mostly diminished. The aroma had light to moderate grain, cereal and caramel; light to moderate herbal and citrus hops; and light to moderate fruity and spicy yeast. The initial flavor was light to moderately sweet, lightly acidic and slightly bitter; while the finish was moderately sweet, slightly acidic; and light to moderately bitter. There was caramel malt, fruity and spicy yeast, fruits, honey, citrus hops, herbal and earthy hops, and metallic hops. The medium body was fairly oily, but also slightly syrupy, then dry with tingly carbonation and a dry, slightly metallic, slightly alcoholic and lightly astringent finish.
