Bottled, 275ml a Christmas gift from Sandra. Reddy amber with no head. Full, fruity, viney beer, smooth and blackberry flavour, some peatiness in the background. The hops have been overtaken by the alcohol but all in all fairly decent. rauchbier (3949) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2003
Bottle conditioned. Ruby red, low head and condition. Aromas are muted but some malt is apparent, becoming more spicy in the mouth along with fruit. Full bodied and oily with a chalky bitter finish and a tingle of alcohol.

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. Doppelganger (1389) - 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.

275ml bottle (Utobeer, London)Dommod2011 (728) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 16, 2012
Deep hazy orange. Sweet fruity aroma - raisin and plum - also some marmite. Slightly fizzy palate at first, but also sweet and thick. Slightly winey taste - fruity plums and treacle. Cakey and a bit yeasty finish.
I was feeling festive so thought I’d open this. Less than 100 days until Christmas and was feeling a little disappointed that the adverts haven’t started yet. Holidays are coming and all that. Can’t say this made me feel any more Christmassy but it did give me an afternoon wobble. Pleasant enough, strong aftertaste, quite sweet. Right, I’m off to buy my tree.
