500 ml bottle into pint glass, 2011 bottling. Pours lightly hazy deep ruby copper color with a 2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of caramel, pear, apple, toast, toffee, pepper, floral, grass, brown bread, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of malt, hop, and fruity yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of caramel, toast, toffee, brown bread, pepper, floral grass, apple, pear, brown sugar, and floral/yeast earthiness. Moderate earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toast, toffee, brown bread, pepper, floral, grass, pear, apple, and floral/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance and robustness of malt, hop, and yeast ester flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a moderately creamy, slick, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a nice English strong ale. Good balance and robustness of malt, hop, and yeast flavors; and very smooth to sip on. A nicely enjoyable offering.

... Lost original rating... Exceptionally nice ale. Like a more intense, deeper, richer Hob Goblin. BOSSbrewer (2705) - Arkansas, USA - SEP 5, 2013
Very nice. Entered this beer on a different app and I'm not able to import my comments unfortunately. jjsint (3109) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2013
Bottle from Tescos. Mid brown. Caramel and alcohol aroma. Taste is sweet, full of flavour. Gorgeous silky palette. Very nice.

Leider fällt der Schaum flott zusammen. Schöne Karamellaromen. Bittere angenehm, aber schwächer als Hobgoblin vom Fass.

Smokey, woody aroma. Hint if Apple. Opaque dark copper. Medium white head. Alcohol is present in taste, woody, semi-bitter. A stronger version if the hobgoblin, but not necessarily better. I’ll have to check my rating on that. Marduk (7694) - Reval, ESTONIA - AUG 21, 2013
500ml bottle. Clear dark copper color. Tiny head, stays. Bready, caramel, sweet notes in aroma. Alcohol, caramel, bitter, hops in flavor. Massive bitter alcohol in aftertaste. Average. NonOperational (60) - ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2013
People say english ales are supposed to be ’fruity’. This is possibly the fruitiest ale I’ve ever had. To think that the rich plum, fig and marmalade notes arise only from fermentation and malt, is very impressive. Would love to try this rich, malty bitter on cask. beertholomeus (1813) - California, USA - AUG 7, 2013
Pours an amber color with off white head. Malt, caramel, toffee, hop and fruity aromas. Caramel, malt, toffee, plum, raisin and hop flavors. Medium full body and low carbonation. Malty caramel finish.
