Bottle. Dark red color with medium light brown head. Aroma of pine, malt, caramel and some fruits and chocolate? Flavor is mostly caramely with tobacco and orange notes. Malty and sweet with some something spicy in finish. Low-medium carbonation. Overall: I really like malty british beers. And this is example of really good one.

kostasgiotis (78) - GREECE - DEC 18, 2015
breadish, malty aromas with a fruity essence. it pours an amber body with a one finger off white head that leaves a slight trace after a while.the body is mediumish and it very pleasant to the mouth.it tastes sweet bread and malt and it leaves a sweetish aftertaste with just a tone of biterness.the alcohol is there but very well disguised.

tekstr1der (348) - New Hampshire, USA - NOV 29, 2015
Had many times, not sure how I missed reviewing. Clear copper pour with quickly disappearing off-white top. Aromas are bread and caramel. The malt makes up most of the flavor, very smooth and semi-sweet. Really balanced, with a clean, somewhat dry finish. I really like this stuff.

Lebo88 (216) - POLAND - NOV 26, 2015
Bottle 500 ml. Rich in taste and aroma, strong roasted and caramel notes, hoppy and malty bitterness, yet again the English style beers do not convince me entirely.

klukas (75) - Rijeka, CROATIA - NOV 15, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 11, 2016 Very nice... ruby, fragrant, tasteful... soft carbonation. Not intrusive but still gives the impression.

MunBro (942) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 10, 2015
A nice twist on an old favorite. Rich and complex malt flavours mingle with caramel, bread, mollasses, etc.

Cloudy dark brown with moldy head. Sweet and malty aroma. Smooth with a hint of hops on the end, not overpowering. Medium bodied.

nofearhatmatt (48) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2015
Pours a beautiful dark ruby red. Tastes similar to the regular goblin, but a bit maltier. Palate has a little funkiness at the back end, but overall a good beer.
