2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light grain and yeast aroma. A nice, foamy head sits comfortably atop this reddish brown pour. Fairly bready flavor with some sweet malt, hops, and molasses. Flat on the palate (how English). Balanced and drinkable, but a little watery.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dark, flame orange coloured beer with a thick off white head. Roasted malt aroma is followed by a slightly grassy hop element. Full-bodied mouthfeel. The taste follows on from the aroma, only in reverse! The hops come through initally, resinous (which could also be put down to the alcohol), grassy, a touch citrusy and quite bitter. This is then followed by a slightly sweet, biscuity malt flavour. Both of which are present right through the long finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle poured a clear reddish brown with a small lingering tan head. Aromas of carmel, toffee, plum, light cherry and a hint of earthiness. Palate was light to medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of toffee, plum, cherry and light pipe tobacco with a smooth dry lingering fruity toffee finish.

a sucker for special releases. Odd as an American to think that a 6.6% abv beer can be called a strong ale. Color is full caramel amber. Aroma is a touch toffee and pumus soap and malt. taste is light butteriness with some sweetness and mineral quality. Probably better enjoyed in a pub.

I was not disappointed with king goblin, spicy, herbal aroma with balanced flavor, coffee, butter, moderate body and tremendous finish.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
50cl bottle. Pours a dark red/brown liquid with almost no head. Nose : caramel and dough, some flower and nuts aromas. Raisins. Sip : Low to medium density with oily and a bit creamy texture. Carbonation is delicate. Sweet and quite fruity with a rich bitter hop ending. Tastes like US hops. Roasted malts adds well to the bitter aftertaste. Nice. Extra points for the full moon abracadabra ;}
