Good, strong malty RIS
This recipe is based on a clone of Terrapin's "Wake N' Bake" Coffee Oatmeal Imperial Stout. I had a 5 gallon MLT, so I used DME to make up the gravity. I added the DME at the beginning of the boil. Since its a dark beer, I was not worried about late additions. This beer got a lower "overall impression" score than the other 3rd place category 23 beer. It was awarded 39 points by both judges.
Judges Tasting Notes:
Aroma: Intense dark stone fruit, dark cherry, plum, raisins. Roast around the edges. Sweet malt, roast, chocolate. Some spicy hop aroma.
Flavor: malty with chocolate and roast balanced by hops. Coffee evident but not overpowering.
Overall: oats provide a good balance to intense malt flavor. Good beer.

After 30 days primary fermentation, rack to keg. Age for 3 months.
When ready to consume, dry "coffee" with .25 lbs fresh ground Jittery Joes Wake N' Bake Blend. This blend from Jittery Joes was specially forumlated by Spike of Terrapin for this beer. Terrapin uses 1lb/bbl. I'm using a larger percentage, but am aging it for a while. Keep in for 3 days.
Remove coffee, carbonate and serve.
