Description 

An Imperial English Brown Ale with 1 pound of coffee per brewery barrel.  Malt forward with notes of caramel, brown sugar and graham cracker, with a strong, yet pleasant coffee flavor that lingers through the finish. Coffee is freshly roasted from Speakeasy Coffee Co., and added to the fermenter (post-fermentation), where it imparts the pleasant coffee flavors and aromas for 36 hours. Tastes the way a coffeehouse smells.
