a sucker for special releases. Odd as an American to think that a 6.6% abv beer can be called a strong ale. Color is full caramel amber. Aroma is a touch toffee and pumus soap and malt. taste is light butteriness with some sweetness and mineral quality. Probably better enjoyed in a pub.

I was not disappointed with king goblin, spicy, herbal aroma with balanced flavor, coffee, butter, moderate body and tremendous finish.

Swaroga (2174) - Gdańsk, POLAND - APR 9, 2012
50cl bottle. Pours a dark red/brown liquid with almost no head. Nose : caramel and dough, some flower and nuts aromas. Raisins. Sip : Low to medium density with oily and a bit creamy texture. Carbonation is delicate. Sweet and quite fruity with a rich bitter hop ending. Tastes like US hops. Roasted malts adds well to the bitter aftertaste. Nice. Extra points for the full moon abracadabra ;}

500 ml bottle pours a dark copper color with a small white head and good lacing. The first smell is full of malts and caramel Aroma is similar, Body is full with low carbonation. Initial taste is neither bitter nor sweet, but the hops kick in on the finish, shich remids me of a doppelbock. There’s an unfortunate chemical afteraste here which is the only negative to an otherwise enjoyable brew.

kermis (12369) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 14, 2012
Bottle at home. Clear amber with an off white head. Fruity malty aroma and flavour with slight caramel and yeast. Slightly bitter finish. Prefer Hobgoblin over this.

mzaar (3169) - Varberg, SWEDEN - MAR 11, 2012
Flaska 50 cl. Bärnstensfärgad öl med medium krämvitt skum. Doftar av toffeekola, päron, knäckebröd och är det grapefrukt månne? Trevlig bitterhet i smaken, där kolan och en fruktighet är dominerande.
