Pours clear dark amber with an off white head. Some lacing all the down the glass. It smells of toasted malt with caramel and a light chocolate characteristic. The flavor is sweet, roasted caramel malt with good balancing bitterness. It finishes with some toasty, toffee accented bitterness. This brew is quite enjoyable. Smooth, just a hint of Alcohol on the back end. It’s been some time since I had a Hob Goblin, it’s time to compare it to it’s big brother.

prawlie (1082) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2011
500 mL bottle at home into a pint glass. Dark brown beer with an uneven head. Fruity, hoppy head, smells good. Very sweet, fruity, raisiny, and rich a fine ale, and hides the alcohol. Very pleasant, and typical of the Hobgoblin stable, one of England’s better ales.
