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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.)

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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?
