Very rich aroma like an oaky red wine. Texture is really smooth and rich. Well balanced malty, fruitiness. Nice sticky, sweet fruity taste.

I always enjoy English Strong ales and Hobgoblin is a favourite anyway. This beer takes the flavours a step further. Vinous, fruity aromas hint at berries, toffee and liquorice. An initially treacley taste gives way to a really well rounded bitterness. Silky smooth on the tongue. Excellent

StueyD (1579) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2012
Dark, flame orange coloured beer with a thick off white head. Roasted malt aroma is followed by a slightly grassy hop element. Full-bodied mouthfeel. The taste follows on from the aroma, only in reverse! The hops come through initally, resinous (which could also be put down to the alcohol), grassy, a touch citrusy and quite bitter. This is then followed by a slightly sweet, biscuity malt flavour. Both of which are present right through the long finish.

ralphdot (1090) - Billingham, Durham, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2012
6.6% deep amber with a nice head, burnt malt aroma, very complex bitter taste (that means that I do not have the ability to describe it), very nice beer.

Was thrilled to see this beer at Grinders (Shoreline, WA) - paired wonderfully with their Meatball/Sausage Sandwich. Wonderful rich malty tones, but not heavy.

2 finger head ruby red mild/medium carbination. Smell is chocolate/toffee & hops. Taste is hobgobline but a lot stronger with the chocolate & toffee,a stronger sourness and you can tell its a BIT heavier. So a stronger & better version of Hobgobline cheer’s!~ Really good. Starts off almost like a porter or stout! :)

Thanks to Seanyfo for this beer! copper in the glass, nose of dark fruit and caramel. The beer starts intense, caramel, roasted and slightly sweet. A bitter taste comes to the beer in the mainpart, nicely harmonising, brown sugar, caramel, molasses. The aftertaste gets more bitter, only slightly sweet now, warming alcohol, very nice balanced roasted, not too sweet.
--> a great brew! I like it! --> 13/10/12/12

Bottle from asda. Pint glass. Much thicker feel that hobgoblin and indeed most of this breweries beers. Caramel, citrus, spruce. Deep red amber beer. Very good.
