Pours a beautiful dark ruby red. Tastes similar to the regular goblin, but a bit maltier. Palate has a little funkiness at the back end, but overall a good beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle pours a deep amber color with a finger and a half of off-white head that leaves some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is dark pitted fruits with some light chocolate and caramel. Taste is a dark fruity and caramel malty sweetness with a grassy hop bitterness. Full bodied with mild carbonation. A beer that sits heavy in the belly and is not as satisfying as it should be. I like the Hobgoblin better.
