Big brother to our Mother’s Milk, Joe Mama’s starts with out Mother’s Milk recipe. We then add copious amounts of brown sugar to add body and increase the alcohol. After primary fermentation we then infuse a cold coffee extract from our friends down the street, Monkey Joe’s Roasting Company.

Joe Mama’s Milk from the bottle (hah) is a thin coffee stout that’s totally replaceable. It reminds me of Central Waters’ Coffee Stout, which I didn’t really like either. There’s not much coffee at all in the aroma (what’s there is burnt), and none in the taste. The aroma is all malt, the taste is all sugar. There’s no trace of 8% alcohol, which would be welcome for some, but for me is the same as a sugary cocktail. It does look great, and it has a clean finish, so this is a milk stout you could drink all night. Plus the flavors are balanced, even though they are tame. So it’s not without its positives. But still, for a highly rated beer, and one that I was very excited to have arrive at my local shop, this brew is a let-down. Back to Green Flash’s Double Stout for me!

Pours nearly opaque coffee with a light tan head. Aroma delivers peppery, roast malt and molasses tones. Flavor echoes the aroma, peppery but not fiercely so - I’ve had beers that could turn your mouth into a set from "The Towering Inferno," but this ain’t one of them. Roast malt, molasses and chocolate round out the pleasing flavor. Body presents good firmness and fizz. Got milk?

Bottle. Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of coffee and chocolate. Flavor of black coffee, chocolate, brown sugar, vanilla and had some smokiness with a dry & roasty finish.

12 oz gift from Stacy - Nice two stroke color, cocoa lace, many layers on the palate. However, stout it is not.

Great aroma of dark roasty coffee and sweetened cream. Dark pour with tan head that leaves s nice film. mild lacing. Smooth mouth feel. A bit lighter than expected but still satisfying medium/light body. Very nice flavor. Milk assists and roasted coffee. Nicely done. I’m a fan.

Beautiful & delicious but imperial? Deep dark pour w/ a tan head & pretty ring of lading. The aroma is coffee w/ just a hint of sweetness. The flavor is roasted coffee but finishes a touch watery & slightly clean. It’s rather drinkable but doesn’t have the chewy body that an imperial needs. Still tasty tho & overall quite good!

Bottle into glass, Mohonk tasting. Opaque black coffee color, cream head. Roasted coffee nose, a touch of caramel. Sweet in the mouth, dark roast. Prominent coffee finish, lingering with coffee bitterness. Excellent stout!

This was poured into a snifter. The appearance was a black color with a one finger white to off white foamy head that dissipated within less than thirty seconds. Light speckled to somewhat stringy lacing clung to the glass. The smell had a nice sweet to bitter blend of coffee to milk chocolate. Light amounts of dark chocolate with some roasty coffee beans round it out. The taste was a nice blend of chocolate to coffee, sweet, bitter and roasty. And then a semi-wet coffee aftertaste leads into a sticky sweet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with an okay wet feel over my tongue. A little less body on my tongue. Overall, still a nice Imperial Stout that I would have again. Just a bit more sessionable than other Imperial Stouts.

Bottle. Pours a brownish-black color with a medium tan head that recedes to an outer ring. Aroma of roasted coffee and malt. Medium body with flavors of toasted malt, coffee and chocolate. The finish is semi-sweet chocolate with a mildly bitter coffee aftertaste. The alcohol is hidden well. I was thinking this was a sweet stout while drinking it.
