This pours a brownish amber with a nice off white head. Very malty with a light fruit flavor, overall decent Grzesiek79 (4362) - Radom, POLAND - FEB 28, 2013
Dobre i wyraziste piwo o pięknej puszystej pianie, ale niestety szybko opada. Kolor rubinowo czerwony. A smak goryczkowo-wytrawny i intensywny. Piwo ciekawe bo ważone o pełni księżyca, nie wiem czy to miało jakiś znaczący wpływ na smak ale fajna ciekawostka. Alkochol wogóle niewyczuwalny. Vells (1878) - Rīga, LATVIA - FEB 26, 2013
Clear copper with medium off white head, quite stable. Bit lacing.
Aroma.. quite intense malty, caramel, floral hoppy, fruity, bubble gum, alcohol. Bit bit metallic in aftertaste
Sweet with quite long bitter finish
Decent quite interesting strong ale. dalfaro86 (309) - Mexico City, MEXICO - FEB 10, 2013
Pours a semicloudy deep amber brew wit a diminute whitw head with poor retention, aroma is moderate to heavy sweet and moderate bitter with notes of caramel, fruity malt and floral hop, médium bodied, the flavor has notes of caramel, fruity malt and floral hops, bittersweet fiinish, one dimensional.

Pours a clear deep copper colour with a white head that slowly dies down leaving good lacing. Lots of fruit aromas on the nose, notably plum and raisin, as well as some malty notes. Taste is largely the same, dominated by dark fruit and caramel but with a bit of a hop kick at the end and some warming alcohol, with a lingering finish. Some other ratings noted the beer being rather unbalanced. I frankly didn’t find that. Maybe the long journey from the UK to Australia knocked some of the edges off this one.

Clear golden with white head. Sweet caramel aroma. Nive sweet staet followed by a short lived bitter finish. Decent beer. jaghana (6160) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - JAN 24, 2013
Bottle 50cl, a amber beer with low head. Aroma is very caramelized, dry, burnt caramel notes, grassy hops, alcohol notes, medium body, very dry and burnt malt feeling at the finish. One dimensional beer. dfearnley (2247) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 21, 2013
King Goblin 500mL, unfortunately out of the bottle.
Skunk, straw, English hops. Sweet with a bitter alcoholy finish. Medium bodied, silky and creamy. On occasion, I love me a nice hobgoblin, but this just doesn't seem to be worth the effort and elevated price. Solid, but not spectacular.

Bottle 0.5l. Colour is dark orange with small thick white head. Aromas and flavours are toffee, caramel, bitterness and malts. Not bad. DavidWoodruff (629) - Windsor, California, USA - JAN 15, 2013
Beautiful deep amber color with a short-lived white head. Aroma is light malt and brown sugar. Flavor of raw almonds and molasses. Finishes with an out-of-balance bitterness.
