dfearnley (1095) - Alberta, - JAN 21, 2013
King Goblin 500mL, unfortunately out of the bottle. Skunk, straw, English hops. Sweet with a bitter alcoholy finish. Medium bodied, silky and creamy. On occasion, I love me a nice hobgoblin, but this just doesn't seem to be worth the effort and elevated price. Solid, but not spectacular.

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

rondphoto (2366) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JAN 10, 2015
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.

CanCrusher (679) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - JAN 2, 2015
Bottle 0,50L. Clear, copper colour with small, off-white, frothy head and excellent lacing. Mostly sweet malty aroma. Taste starts medium bitter with dark fruits and caramel. finish is medium bitter, too. Medium to full body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Nice, smooth brew. Alcohol is present, but hidden. Probably best Marston’s brew.

The_Osprey (2156) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2014
500ml bottle from ASDA, BB Dec 2015. Dark reddy amber, sparkling, big creamy head, full lacing. Aroma is sweet, currants, wallpaper paste, yeasty like a Belgian beer. Body is medium, very foamy, low carbonation. Taste is tangy malt, some alcohol, yeasty. Slow drinking Belgian-style ale. Pretty decent.
