Niezwykle udane, mocne jak na Anglię piwo nie bez przyczyny w opisie ma extraordinary. Wielość smaków i aromatów w nim wyczuwalnych sprawia, że jest produktem nieporównywalnym do żadnego innego piwa w tym stylu.

Bottle. Pours a dark amber brown color with a small off-white head. Has a fruity malty spicy caramel aroma with weak hints of raisins. Fruity malty caramel flavor with bitter hints. Has a fruity malty spicy bitter caramel finish.

nazzty (1271) - Ödĺkra - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - JUL 27, 2013
It does not win at the higher alcohol content than Hobgoblin. The fine malt tones are still there, but now with a little too much sweetness and a hint of alcohol taste.

Uit de fles. Amberkleurig. Ruikt een beetje bedorven, kauwgom fruitig. Wat dunne smaak, bitterzoet, ik haal er niks specifieks uit. Geen bijzonder lekker bier.

Beesbeer (452) - WALES - JUL 21, 2013
This is to my mind the best of the bottled beers from Wychwood. This tastes less than pasteurised and has all the body and flavour you would expect from a strong ale. Aroma kind of bubblegum. Lots of raison, dough, hay richness, that ends in the mouth with a slight Christmas pudding fruitiness hazelnut and raison. Medium to full body. Smooth mouthfeel.

Got a bottle at morrisons, dark Brown, spicy taste, nice and hoppy. Good beer, and the bottle and label are beautiful too.

ErkkiH (6) - - JUN 29, 2013 does not count
Rusty, flashy, and sparkly appearance. Very thick, porous head with a short lifetime. Extremely mild aroma. Taste is fruity with a little pine and hop. Sharp palate. A good beer, way better than the Hobgoblin. ---Rated via iPhone

larsga (7375) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 22, 2013
Medium beige head. Clear deep dark red body. Fruity perfumy marzipan aroma with licorice and cocos notes. Sweet fruity perfumy taste with alcoholic licorice notes. Mid-to-full body. Mild, slightly hot mouthfeel. Dryish dried fruit and cocos aftertaste with mealy earthy roasty notes. Interesting. You can tell they’ve tried to make a higher-quality beer, but it keeps that signature Wychwood flavour I’m not very fond of. (0.5l bottle, Systembolaget, Nordstan.)

daje (4209) - NORWAY - JUN 16, 2013
Bottle, may 4th 2013. Cloudy amber body, medium beige head. Alcoholic aroma with malt and nuts. Astringent and malty taste, again way too high alcohol note for the strength. Bitterness is really off. Vineous fruit finish. A bad batch?

zvsn (1785) - ISRAEL - JUN 12, 2013
Bottle. Pours a dark amber with a foamy off white head, nice lacing. Caramel and malts aroma. Slightly sweet, with caramel, dark fruits and toffee notes. Medium body, gentle bitter finish. Nice and enjoyable beer.
