This recipe started as a pantry sweep stout to use up the leftovers of several dark malts, but the resulting beer has a really nice, complex flavor and aroma so I think it's worth sharing.

It needs another few days in the keg before it's ready but then I'll post photos of the pour. If it ages well I'll enter it in a competition, but let's see what my brew buds think of it first.

since it's a beverage, I can make this Die Hard reference, "I was always partial to Roy Rogers, myself."
Jk, recipe looks awesome! First time I've seen coffee malt!

Roasted barley is on the list twice with differing amounts....
Oh yeah sorry, I'll fix that. I did have two small bags of leftovers. Like I said, it started out as a pantry sweep recipe.

Hey thanks, it's going to be the name of my homebrewing-themed brewpub. When my lotto numbers come in, that is. Our mascot will be a portly cowboy named Rusty Capper. Bottle drying rack chandeliers, it'll be great.
