Not a nice beer. Overly bitter and lacking in flavour compared to other goblins.

This beer is 3 years old, so...

Pours a hazy copper brown with a modest cream head.

Aroma is reminiscent of cherry cough drops, with a bit of floral character.

Flavor follows suit, with more menthol and dull cherry flavor overtaking the toasted malt, into the fairly bitter, earthy, herbal, and medicinal finish.

Body is a little watery, with moderate carbonation and light alcohol warmth.

I thought age was responsible for the of flavors, but other reviews indicate otherwise. This is going to be a little difficult to enjoy.
