I have a non-imperial version inspired by this beer/lecture in the fermenter right now. I scaled back the gravity to 1.065 and I'm going to hit it with the nibs/coffee in a few days. I'll report back how it turns out, but it has been a year and a half since I had the beer.

Bokonon - how much coffee and cacao nibs did you add and how did it turn out? Was it close to the real thing?

Would you mind posting the recipe?

I used 12 oz of coffee that a friend roasted for me, a blend of 3 different beans don't recall off hand what they were and 12oz of nibs. This was in a 12 gallon batch

It's basically carbonated coffee, a nice breakfast beer but way unbalanced. I cold steeped the dark grains and I should have just tossed them in the mash, I get a ton of coffee flavor/aroma but very little malt.

I'd say it was a good first attempt but needs some adjustment if/when I brew it. Definitely throw the dark grains in the mash and not cold steep them (or use significantly more than I did, I doubled what I normally would have put in a similar beer and that wasn't enough). I would knock the quantity of coffee back if I kept the gravity the same, or keep the same amount of coffee and kick the gravity up to 1.085ish.

I might end up brewing a porter/stout with no coffee and blending some of this in to make it more balanced.

Here is what I did for a 13 gal batch. I thought I had more chocolate malt in my inventory but I didn't so I used some of the other dark malts I had laying around.

22# pale malt
3# munich
2# Flaked barley
1# Crystal 15
1# Crystal 60

I cold steeped these (in the mash I'd cut them about in half and increase the base malt):
1.25# Chocolate malt
.75# Pale Chocolate malt
.75# Kilned coffee malt
.5# Black Patent
.25# Carafa III

2oz Galena 9% AA @ 60
2oz Fuggles 2.5% AA @ 45
2oz Fuggles 2.5% AA @ 30
2oz EKG 3.5% @ 15

Cold steeped in fermenter for 24 hours at end of fermentation
12oz Course ground coffee blend
12oz Cacoa nibs

Did you get any feedback from Jeff B. regarding the recipe formulation?

Do you happen to know Coffee Monster's starting gravity and IBU?

Nope I didn't ask him about it, next time I see him I'll try to remember to ask. IIRC it is supposed to be about 9% ABV so I'd say starting around 1.085-1.090 and finishing 1.015-1.018
