I found it in TNCJOHB. Awesome! I won't have too use very much and I won't bastardize Orfy's Recipe.

I made a historical mild that used molasses, it was an interesting flavour. Orfy's mild with about a quarter to half pound would be really good I think.

I bet that would be pretty good too. I'd be careful not to go overboard with the amount though. Hobgoblin would be dominated very easily by molasses I think.

I'd probably try 250G (I think that's about 8oz) on my first attempt and see how I liked it. It shouldn't be overpowering at that level but you'll definitely still be able to taste it.

I'm prepping to brew tomorrow - the theme is "Winter Ales" so I haven't yet decided which brew I'm going to make. On one hand, the head brewer really liked the Hobgoblin I shared with him last month, and said it was a great example of an old ale...So I was picturing a Molasses Hobgoblin old ale. On the other hand, this time of year last year is when I brewed my very first batch, a Brown Ale with molasses in it. I can't decide if I want to commemorate by entering the same beer but better refined? (You shoulda seen my recipe, it was comically out of balance, but still turned out delicious.)

I have recently bought two large jars of sourgum and ribbon cane syrup to add as adjunct in couple of recipes. the first recipe i plan onusing is a clone of sheperd neame bishops finger, was considering using the whole jar (1.5 to 2 qts) but now will prob only use half after reading how strong the flavor is. Sounds like it should be quite good if I let it age til next winter. pumped about using the stuff. I am thinking that I will use some ribbon cane in a moose drool style brew. Any thoughts?

This is the first recipe I put together myself. It's not a bad brew, the molasses originally was added to try for the "Guinness sour tang" - but sort of took on a life of it's own.

This is the beer that my friends and family ask for, time and again. When I took a brewing hiatus, this is the beer they complained about not having.

Dunderhead Dry Stout

YMMV. Personally, I like other stouts, both commercial and my own, more - but if demand is the indicator of success, this is my most successful brew so far.
