Very good head. Color between amber and copper. Clear.
Hops, esters, raspberry and caramel in aroma.
Medium bitterness, sweet.
Light carbonation, medium body, frothy texture. tekstr1der (491) - New Hampshire, USA - NOV 29, 2015
Had many times, not sure how I missed reviewing. Clear copper pour with quickly disappearing off-white top. Aromas are bread and caramel. The malt makes up most of the flavor, very smooth and semi-sweet. Really balanced, with a clean, somewhat dry finish. I really like this stuff. NallePalle (655) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAR 6, 2017
Bottle, 50 cl, bought at "upper glass", Mannheim. Delicious ale, well balanced. mike_77 (6734) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - NOV 12, 2011
Very rich aroma like an oaky red wine. Texture is really smooth and rich. Well balanced malty, fruitiness. Nice sticky, sweet fruity taste. will1 (140) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - FEB 5, 2012
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

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 (1094) - 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. wabeerman (24) - Washington, USA - JUL 17, 2012
Was thrilled to see this beer at Grinders (Shoreline, WA) - paired wonderfully with their Meatball/Sausage Sandwich. Wonderful rich malty tones, but not heavy. OntBeerDrinker (514) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 24, 2012
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! :) anfractuosity (416) - - MAR 20, 2013
Very nice beer, like a stronger version of hobgoblin. Nice darkish ambery colour.
