Pours a beautiful dark ruby red. Tastes similar to the regular goblin, but a bit maltier. Palate has a little funkiness at the back end, but overall a good beer.

reebtogi (5831) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 2, 2015
500ml bottle pours a deep amber color with a finger and a half of off-white head that leaves some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is dark pitted fruits with some light chocolate and caramel. Taste is a dark fruity and caramel malty sweetness with a grassy hop bitterness. Full bodied with mild carbonation. A beer that sits heavy in the belly and is not as satisfying as it should be. I like the Hobgoblin better.

50cl bottle from Aldi - pours dark amber with slightly off white head - aroma: malt and grass/citrus. Taste: fruitcake, malty-sweetness, and a decent alcohol kick. Pretty good

lokis333 (415) - Birěai, LITHUANIA - SEP 19, 2015
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2016 Clear chestnut brown color with small brownish foam. Aroma of malty and fruity with a hint of chocolate. Palate, medium body with light to medium texture leaving malty finish. Taste, sweetish malty with caramely and fruity notes. Overall nice beer, somewhat could be named "old man beer" in UK but easy going for me session beer.

I go to this a lot, as itís generally dirt cheap and delivers plenty for the price. Itís inconsistent, but usually it kicks off with a huge hit of eggy sulphur. As with Hobgoblin, you get a bit of citrus and raisin, but with a lot of diacetyl, veg and some kind of soy/umami thing. At one stage it starts to taste a bit like a liquid version of an old hardback book you found in an attic. Also, Stilton and gum balls. I actually really like it, thatís the thing.
