There’s nothing wrong with this beer a bit of bottle conditioning couldn’t put right. A stronger version of Hobgoblin with more caramel added.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle @ Party Source / Bellevue KY --- Clear dark amber with a solid 1/2" beige head, streamers of lace. Aroma of malt and earth. Taste is malt and molasses that grow through the palate to a light dose of hops, moving smoothly from there to a long hop and malt finish. Unassuming, not very complex, but full-bodied and easy to drink.

Brownish color, little foam persistent, slightly fruity aroma of chocolate. Its flavor surprising for a Strong Ale proving very balanced and excellent drinkability.
