3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle): Pours an amber with ruby tint, small white head. Sweet malty aroma with floral and citrus notes. Taste has strong fruity sweetness, malt, caramel with some earthy, floral notes coming through with the bitterness on the finish. Itís pretty good, a little too sweet - I prefer hobgoblin to this.

King Goblin is a reddish-brown English Strong Ale. This one reminded me a lot of their Hobgoblin only with a slightly more hoppy flavor.
I enjoy any beer named after an Advanced Dungeons & Dragons monster. I canít wait for their Kobold Weizen.

Brewed on a full moon drank on an empty stomach. As smooth as my chat up lines but more successfull.

Thereís nothing wrong with this beer a bit of bottle conditioning couldnít put right. A stronger version of Hobgoblin with more caramel added.

Aroma is malty, with some fruit (pears, cherries) and molasses. Hazy amber with minimal taned head. Taste is sweet with alcohol bitterness. Medium body and oily texture and very lively carbonation. Long malty finish. Nothing fancy here, just good old strong ale.

As with all Wychwood beers, Iím initially put off by the naff label and branding. Aroma of dark molasses , smokey and malty. Taste - some sweetness at first - then very bitter. I like it but I canít get past the bitterness. I keep trying to look for more in that bitterness, but itís very one note as others have noted. So there you are.

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

Pours dark auburn. Floral hops and figs on the nose. Caramel, dried fruit and malt taste. Finishes with lingering hops and slight metallic notes. Very enjoyable.

Dark amber, with a fading off-white head. Smell is of bread, caramel, raisins, and a hint of something zesty, maybe tangerines. Smatch is mostly spicy hops. The mouthfeel is smooth, but with some tingly bubbliness on the tongue.
