4 # Dark Malt Extract
3 # Light Malt Extract
1/8 # Roasted Barley
1/8 # Black Patent Malt

Steep roasted barley, black patent, chocolate, and crystal malts while bringing to a boil. Remove grains before water temp goes above 180F. Add dark and light extracts and boiling hops and boil for 60 minutes. Add finishing hops at the last 2 minutes of the boil. Add coffee in a hop bag at flame out while cooling. Transfer to fermenter. Pitch yeast when cooled below 90 degrees F.
