Smells a little spicy. Some booze, british hops and a little malt. Head and lacing are pretty good. A bit of a boozy bitter aftertaste. A good session beer that tastes lighter than it is. Bottle.

Har haft den här flaskan i kylskåpet i säkert ett år. Hela tiden varit säkert på att den skulle vara tjock och mindre god. Men ack så fel

sputnikus (96) - Brno, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 19, 2013
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.

Bendrixian (1162) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2013
Clear brew with a darker auburn colour and the head has a cream colour. Muted aroma, there is almost no aroma as a matter of fact. there is some dried fruit, caramel, banana. On the palate it is medium bodied, has a malted note and some heat on the finish. Meh, better than the hob goblin but that isn’t saying much.
