3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
The true "full moon" beer! Pours a beautiful, dark red with a frothy head that slowly dissipates to a thin lacing. One of the finest English bitters I've had. I would call this a dark bitter. Reminds me of my favorite, Riggwelter from Black Sheep brewery.
