There’s nothing wrong with this beer a bit of bottle conditioning couldn’t put right. A stronger version of Hobgoblin with more caramel added.

Onesimus (42) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2017
Mahogany Red with two finger light tan head that quickly dissipated to a ring around the glass. Aroma, plenty of dark fruits with hints of spice and malts. In the mouth it's smooth with medium carbonation and quite warming. Tastes upfront is restrained sweetness of fruits and dandelion and burdock. Balanced by a follow through of slightly pungent bitterness and perhaps some cloves. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hrabren (1121) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 22, 2017
0.5 l bottle from Pivoteka, Zagreb. Shared with Višnja 666, Tanja, Davor and Goran. Clear amber, small off-white head. Dry fruit, floral, perfumed. Sweet, marzipan or cake. Not bad tasting. Medium body, medium carbonation, moderate, sweet finish, light toasty. Nothing special.

TorbenJensen (1479) - Valby, DENMARK - JAN 19, 2017
780/5000 I sense the a spicy caramel aroma and slightly floral hop aroma. The taste has chocolate malt sweetish taste which is accompanied by fine ripe berry and slightly nutty flavor. Coffee?, although the coffee flavor is said to be very weak. The hops are sufficiently adapted in this ale and stands out as a fine finish that sets a nice edge to this ales sweet tones. The hops are slightly floral (typically British) and contributes to maintaining a malty sweetness in an elegant way. My overall impression is a malty ale with an emphasis great taste and balanced malt which do not compromise with bitterness, but is in good balance in the overall impression. The carbonation is soft and contributes to the good and long aftertaste.

Bottle. Pours clear tea amber with airy off-white head. Clear aroma of hops and flowers, with notes of malt and touches of fruit. Sweetish flavour of malt and fruit, with bitter and grassy notes of hops. Hints of leaves and yeast. Estery and bitterish aftertaste with mild malty hints. Okay.
