Dark brown, creamy, lasting, cappuccino head. Aroma is tempting with roasted malt, sweet caramel and some coffee in between. Flavor is roasty and hoppy with caramel and light spicy notes. Finish is dry and long. Medium to full bodied

Ambrée, maltée, légčre amertume sur la fin. Pas désagréable, mais assez moyenne

Pours a reddish brown colour, in a way similar to the original Hob Goblin, except it is much more malty and the fruit flavours are more subdued

From the 500 ml. bottle stamped CJK-22(smudged). Attractive medium to dark amber/mahogany pour with a full cream colored head that fades a bit. The aroma is of sweet malts, vague dark fruit, and low profile but earthy hops. Medium and smooth body. Like the aroma the character is malts and earth but I also pick up a touch of black licorice in the mix when I drink it. Mild but lingering bitterness on the backside. Very British. I’m in pub land.

Beese (2555) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2014
Bottle from Tesco in Wokingham. Poured a clear dark chestnut colour with a large beige head and visible carbonation. Malt heavy aroma with some molasses and dark fruit. Initial flavours were somewhat bitter grass, mixed with brown sugar and toffee. Palate was slightly cream soda-esque.

beeebon (222) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2014
Aroma of stewed fruits and tastes of sweet malt with some rich fruitiness. I think this is one of my favourite Wychwood ales and definitely worth checking out.

EcnarM (101) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - FEB 15, 2014
This beer drinks much larger than expected of a 6.6% ale. Color and head were both spot on and taste was bigger flavored than most in its class. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
