i brewed this 2 weeks ago
the sample i tried smelled and tasted good, however the colour is more amber than the dark black of the store bought.
has anyone else had this problem?
i was going to increase the chocolate and black patent next time around.
any suggestions as to how much more?
thanks,rod

it's been a while since I had hobgoblin, but I don't recall it being 'dark black' at all. maybe my memory is foggy....

edit: the official wychwood website calls the beer "ruby red coloured".

Anyway, if you want to darken it up a bit, just double the choc and patent malt. They are ther ein pretty small quantities already, so doubling them won't make much difference in flavor, but might get the darkness you want.

That's What I Was Considering,but Since I Am Relatively New To Brewing I Didn't Want To Mess Up The Good Flavour To Correct A Colour Issue.
Thanks For The Quick Reply

If you want to be truly, pedantically accurate, it's Styrian Goldings rather than East Kent Goldings, from the Wychwood website:


"Head Brewer, Jeremy Moss, has produced a full chocolate malt flavour beer by the addition of a small proportion of crystal malt and the use of Fuggles hops blended with Styrian Goldings hops. The ruby red coloured Hobgoblin is full-bodied and has a delicious chocolate toffee malt flavour balanced with a rounded moderate bitterness and an overall fruity character."


In fact, if you go to the Wychwood website, they seem to have a thing for Styrian Goldings, they crop up in a lot of brews (including my favourite beer of the moment, Wychcraft).

Hob Goblin is a black beer.

I have 40 pins of the stuff on secondary and drank a proper bottle last night.

The Hob is on the left in a clear bottle, in the glass is the Circle Master.



This is my Hob Clone next to the OPA.




Here's my recipe.

(5 gallons)
OG =1.059 FG =1.016 SRM = 17.5 IBU = 28

6 oz. British crystal malt (55° Lovibond)
1 oz. British chocolate malt
0.5 oz. British black malt
6.5 lbs. Munton's extra light dry malt extract (DME)
4 oz. malto dextrin
7 AAUs Progress bittering hops (1 oz. of 7% alpha acid)
3.4 AAUs Styrian Goldings flavour hops (0.66 oz. of 5% alpha acid)
2.5 AAUs Styrian Goldings aroma hops (0.5 oz. of 5% alpha acid)
1 tsp. Irish moss
London Ale yeast (Wyeast 1028) or English Ale yeast (White Labs WLP002)
0.75 cup corn sugar for priming ( use dme )

and this is the brew session.
