Hobgoblin bottle dates or difference between gift tin years?

Discussion in 'Beer Talk' started by Jesta384, Jan 4, 2013.

  1. Long story short, I found a glass and bottle gift tin of hobgoblin while cleaning out my grandfathers garage. It looks like some pictures I found of the tin from 2009, but not from 2011 (I think). This was based off a quick google image search. The 09 had a white banner behind the words glass and gift set, while the later year had a red banner. I also could not see a traditional date stamped on it but did see a code of some sort. If someone could help determine what yar this is from I would be very greatful. Thanks!

  4. Mine is 0CJ0. Maybe zeros. Maybe ohs. Thoughts? Google isn't helping much. Maybe its my search parameters and keywords.
     
  5. I received a reply from the brewery, and they said it was from 2010. I'm looking forward to this accidental ager, however I would have prefered 2000!
     
  6. Just for reference...in case anyone searches for 2 year old hobgoblin....
    I opened it and tried it. I have never had Hobgoblin before (I always seem to skip trying the ones I can get ALL the time in favor of buying the rare and limited...) and I was stupid and did not get a fresh one to compare, however, the two year old itself was just delicious!! Aged well.
