Malt and ornage in the aroma. Sweet flavor with mandarins, sweet grapes and malt. Alcohol is clearly present. madsberg (11773) - Søborg, DENMARK - MAR 18, 2005
Bottled: Orange coloured. Hazy. Off white head. Caramel, sweetness and fruit in the aroma. Flavour is fruity, raisiny and has clear alcohol notes. Ends on a light bitter note. Fin (10624) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2008
Bottle picked up from Westholme, Londis, Goring-on-Thames, Oxon, had this 11-05-08 This was labelled as Wobble in a Bottle. Hazy mid-amber pour with a creamy off white head that quickly departs. Some sherry like notes on the aroma, alcohol is noticeable though doesn’t really detract from the taste, bit sticky sweet at times, some dried fruits, its quite nice. I thought that it was a bit tight at this strength putting it in a 275ml bottle though, I could understand it if it was 10% or above. leaparsons (10616) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2006
Bottle. Red/brown with no head. Aromas are sweer malts with fruit, spices and hints of chocolate. Has bready yeast with some berry sourness. Flavours are sweet and malty with chocolate. Quite vinous with herbal, medicinal notes. Nice warming alcohol. Quite thick on the palate. A good brew. DuffMan (10459) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 29, 2009
From the bottle this has beautiful colour, deep red-orange, hazy. There is almost no head however. Aroma is very sweet brown sugar and stewed plums, slightly bourbony. Mouthfeel is heavy and soft, with low carbonation, like it’s been hand-pulled from a cask. Very sweet butter toffee, rum & raisin flavours, along with some vanilla and oak as well. Rich, sweet, and a little boozy. Yes indeed, I feel the wobble!

Mahogany red with a huge, golden head. The aroma is spicy, lightly malty and fruity. The flavour is full-bodied and complex, and it leads the thought a bit in the direction of Belgium. It has notes of dark fruit, raisin and plum, caramel licorice, spice and a light hint of grapefruit in the dry finish. It’s a really nice beer. JorisPPattyn (10026) - Ursel, BELGIUM - DEC 17, 2006
VERY aged sample - actually 15-16 yrs, making it even more interesting...
Old Armenian brandy colour, no head. Christmas cake nose with lots of alcohol, sweet smelling and a "sourish" Christmas pudding sauce (butter& vanilla). Sweet, cakey taste, a lot of alcohol, higher alcohols, a touch of yoghurt and sultana’s. Slick, alcoholwarming with even fully liqueurish MF. Superbly age beer - which means it must have been good to start with already. Big thanks to Steve Hannigan for a taste of this! daniele (9228) - ITALY - SEP 23, 2007

Bottled. A mid brown coloured beer with a bright red hue and absolutley head free. The aroma is fruity with strawberries and mandarins noted. The taste is thick with chewy hops, again with strawberries noted. To my mind this is an attempt at a Barley Wine with slightly less alcohol but loads of fruity hops. Enjoyable. chriso (7569) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2011
Cask (gravity dispense) at the Pigs Ear Beer Festival, London on 6 December 2006. Dark reddish brown colour. Strong raisiny fruit aroma with some vinous notes and a slight herbal, medicinal feel. More rich fruit on the palate. Plums and prunes. Slightly woody. Rich and complex mouthfeel. A warming and satisfying strong ale.
