dfearnley (2247) - Edmonton, Alberta, - 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, gift from Mum. Clear ruby/amber body with a medium beige head. Lively carbonation. Faint lacing. Aroma of plum and fruit pudding. Flavour of berries, raisins and wood. Medium body with a slick mouthfeel. Soft fizz. Rather nice. I think this would be great on cask.

6.6% alk. Nakon što sam ju utočio u čašu stvarno sam očekivao puno bolje pivo nego što je. Izgledom je primamljiva, crvenkasta sa dobrom pjenom. Međutim nedostaje mirisa. Je gusta ali fali okusa. Ima neki alkoholni aftertaste.

Bijl (747) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 13, 2017
Licht bruin, zeer helder, crèmekleurige schuimkraag, weinig koolzuur. Aroma: Beetje metaal, karamel, Moutig, brood/biscuit, iets kruidig. Smaak: Geroosterde mout, karamel, donker fruit , spicy noble hops, aarde/mossig en iets noot achtig. Meer kruidig dan bitter en iets droog in de afdronk en een beetje alcohol. Medium body en vrij zacht mondgevoel.

Malty, sweet, caramel on the nose. Same goes for the taste. Medium, oily, soft. Longish finish, somewhat alcoholic, somewhat fruity. Overall, could be better, could be worse.

From elcervecero. In Ikea’s pint glass. Watching Game of Thrones 7x01 + playing Pillars of Eternity. Caramel and even children bubblegum in a good body and great feeling thanks to a well adjusted noble hops bitterness. I want another

500ml bottle. Pours a dark ruby with a tan head. Nose is caramel, toffee, prunes, Christmas cake and earthy floral hops. Fairly thick sweet mouth feel. Taste is sweet caramel, toffee, dark fruits, slight alcohol burn, floral bitterness. Quite a grower this one, gets better as the beer goes down.

Bottle. Head retention great for a bottle. Caramel and toffee dominates smell and taste. Tastes and is strong alcohol wise. Is Nice and indulgent, if a little bit on the sweet side

kalkone (29) - BELGIUM - JUN 18, 2017
La bière a goût de noix, fruité, avec une touche amère en arrière goût. Pas mauvaise.

lesifflebiere (1928) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 29, 2017
Couleur à mi-chemin entre l’acajou et le noisette (ou entre rouge et brun), mousse rare, texture mince. Un nez discret de sucre d’orge et de boisé. Bouche ronde, alcoolisée jusqu’à un certain point, noix et amertume en fin de gorgée. Rappelant une ESB sur stéroïdes, elle est savoureuse mais sa minceur cache mal son alcool, trop distrayant. Acceptable, sans plus.

Wim (4108) - Weelde, BELGIUM - MAY 27, 2017
On holiday in wales amber colored body with an off white head and with a malt hop fruity yeast aroma a spicy fruity yeast malt hop sweet bitter taste with a light alcholic bitter finish
