Bottle: Pours a dark copper brown with a wispy white head. Aroma has nice caramel malty presence with a good English hoppy balance. Nice viscous body starts with a good toasty malty sweetness. Finishes with a nice fresh hoppy bitterness and some sweet, dry caramel malt.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2007
A Mes rate: 27.5cl bottle from Kris Wines. How many aliases does this have? Was like opening up one of those Russian dolls trying to get to this page. Anyway, excellent colour. Deep dark hazy amber with a slight off white rim and film. Unusual aroma. Nothing stands out as being odd but it’s certainly different. Strong alcohol and barley with some nice fruit and maybe a little terpentine underneath. Sadly fairly unbalanced and sticky in the mouth. Heavy tangy malt and a little to sweet with a really sticky finish. Clear alcohol. Long yeasty finish. Close, but no biscuit.

275ml bottle "Wobble in a Bottle". Slightly hazy copper colour with a thin white head;rich tropical fruit aroma;flavour is also very fruity and syrupy; lots of obvious alcohol in the finish.

Hogs Back’s strong use of hops is here well balanced by a luscious sweet malt base. The alcohol provides a rich satisfying depth. A splendid beer.

I too have the 'Santas Wobble' that omhper mentions. Pretty approachable strong ale. Nice rich barley sweetness, with some juicy, slightly citric hops at the finish. I don't get the smoke in the aroma, oh, well, ever so slightly. Spiesy hit the nail on the head with the 'savoury finish' comment, abit spicy i the finish aswell. Pretty decent. A touch syruppy and sticky.

Bottle Brown and flat.Sweet and malty and left no lacing. Some fruitiness and all round a pleasant winter ale.

thebeertourist (5189) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 4, 2007
Bottle (Wobble in a Bottle). Clear, red amber- glowing orange. Small head. Sweet malty and fruity aroma. Sweet flavours with fruity notes and a hint of nuts and raisins. Full body, slightly sirupy, smooth. In the end it was not that special.

3.2
ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 19, 2007
Comes as "Hogs Back Wobble in a Bottle". Amber colour with an off white head. Malty, sweet fruity aroma. Malty, light caramel sweet flavor with a vague hoppy finish.

[email protected] Sourish, laurel, licorice, fruity aroma. Red colour, light hazy, beige irregular small head, no lace. Sweet, bitter, laurel, licorice, hint of fruity sourness. Very oily. Off-flavours, unblanced. Did I have a bad bottle?

3.7
RichardGretton (4770) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2006
Bottle. Bronze beer with a strong slightly off white head. The aroma is very rich and slightly spiced and the flavour has a zing, is rich and fruity and syrupy. Overall a very nice beer.
