Hogs Back Wobble in a Bottle. Picked up at Hogs Back. Pours cloudy and copper, no head. This is the second strong Hogs Back beer I’ve had and I have to say they are damn ugly but pretty tasty! This one has some doughy character, fruit and sweetness amongst the heavily visibly alcohol content. Tasty.

Bottle: Poured light brown, with ruby highlights. Lasting beige head. Caramel aroma, with some prune notes. Sweet fruity flavour, lots of raisins and prunes, with some caramel toffee there too. Balanced finish. Tasty.

[330ml bottle, Waitrose Edinburgh] Pours totally flat, opaque purplish/mauve with no rising carbonation. Smells extremely fruity, hints of dark stone fruits – plums, prunes etc. Alcohol tang is the first thing on the palate, then rich stone and berry fruit, malts and warmth. Ripe tastes hide the alcohol in the finish and leave more fruit flavours to come out at the end – it tastes like it should be one of your five a day, and would be sensational with some fruitcake. I love the cartoon man slumped in his armchair with beer and slippers [sampled as Wobble in a Bottle]. [26022010]

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - JUN 4, 2008
Bottle, from Fin, labeled "Wobble in a Bottle". Thanks mate! Dark copper, small ring of sticky, soapy bubbles. Light caramel aroma, dates, and a whiff of grape flavor--as in the grape flavored gum that 7 year olds think is amazing. Thick sweet rummy flavor, alcohol quite forward, but that actually serves to keep a very sweet beer from being totally cloying, and a sip finishes surprisingly clean. Pleasant sipper, though a little pokey around the edges.

Rob_D_UK (1369) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 7, 2013
Rich malty toffee aromas. Some very light hops apparent in the flavour despite this only fairly sweet.

Garrat (1347) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - OCT 24, 2005
From A Bottle.Dark brown in colour with no head,aroma is of cinnamon and fruit,taste is sweet and fruity with a spicey finish.

Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - OCT 20, 2005
Bottle. (Wobble in a bottle). Red-brown with small head. Marmite, fruit (plums), brandy, dry fnish, low carbonation. Went nicely with a lovely Stilton. Better than the Hogs Back Brewsters Bundle that preceeded it.

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 25, 2010
21/01/2009. Amber, clear, with more of a thick creamy film on top than a head. Delicious ripe fruit esters mixed with orange hop and mild caramel sweetness. Lovely deep hop character nestles in behind the rich sweet (but perfectly attenuated and never cloying) malt character. Looks, smells and tastes gorgeous... this is a great example of the balanced style of beer that the English do best. It could be 3% or 10% but still have this perfect harmony of malt and hop.
