Perfect clone of hobgoblin.
Same aroma and taste.

PopsGoblin is a powerful full-bodied copper red, well-balanced brew. Strong in roasted malt with a moderate hoppy bitterness and slight fruity character that lasts through to the end.

My favorite beer.
So this is my best recipe.

As option I put the Oak chips for the past 10 minutes boiling.

The Oak toasted increased the sensation of sweetness and added notes of wood, as well as notes of toffee are more pronounced.
