Orange colour with a medium mostly lasting orangish head. Powerful aroma and great taste of bitter hops with some sweetness. Nice palate.

Bottled. (As Wobble in a Bottle) Brownish orange and hazy, with a beige head. Looks really deliciuos. Hops, a light maltiness, and some caramel in the aroma. Quite volatile. The flavor has a good dash of alcohol, with caramel sweetness and some hoppiness. Fullbodied beer, and a finish with alcohol and hops. (060604)

Rich malty toffee aromas. Some very light hops apparent in the flavour despite this only fairly sweet.

Bottled. I’ve got the seasonal variety ’Santas Wobble’, which according to their website was so popular they made it a regular and changed the name of it. Pours deep amber. Syrupy, fruity nose. Full bodied, malty and very sweet. Nice woody, spicy finish.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2003
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.

Great name, from an average brew. Fruity cherry nose with some apricot. Auburn color and a flat scumy head. Toasted malt with some raisin or fig. Mouth filling dryness but a dull hop character. Thin body but lots of alcohol through the entire profile. Good for a British beer but still something missing...

RichardWilding (201) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2004
Cask. Called Santa’s Wobble, special for Christmas. Mid brown, a tiny white head. Sweet fruity aroma, apricot, perhaps cherry. A bit syrupy. Hops are present, but the beer is dominated by the alcohol. It was a bit too strong tasting for my tastes.

Ungstrup (37905) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 4, 2005
An unclear dark red beer with a disappearing orange head. The aroma sweet and spicy - especially ginger standing out. The flavor is sweet and spicy, but also with roasted and chocolate notes.

3.2
Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - APR 17, 2005
Hazy amber color, small head. Sweet malt and grass aroma with some spices and anise hints. Mostly sweet and spicy flavor with liquorice notes. Quite full and different.
