Imagine the rich roasted malts, smooth mouth feel and subtle sweetness of our award-winning Milk Stout, kicked up a few notches and infused with dark-roasted, small batch coffee from our good friends at Lancaster County Coffee Roasters. At 8% ABV, cracked coffee beans in the mash, coffee in the boil and cold brewed espresso in the finished beer just think of Imperial Jo as Milk Stouts rowdy big sister. ABV: 8% OG: 19 IBU: 55

Dark with a thin and fading tan head. Roasty, smooth malt and cocoa with a touch of coffee. Full, but no heavy. A very nice stout.

Pours a tar black with a thin tan head which disappears quickly.....aroma is coffee, basically I cant get anything more than overwhelming coffee......taste is coffee, sweetness, touch of molasses, smooth finish after a spike in bitterness.

Exquisite aroma and overall a very good stout! The coffee and chocolate notes immediately draw you in to this beer as it has one of the best aromas Ive come across. Pours black w/ a tan head and a nice ring of lacing. The taste is of roasted coffee w/ just enough chocolate to add complexity and make this rather tasty! The 8% isnt all that noticable as its pretty smooth but lacking the big bold imperial chewiness. However, this is still one damn good beer & certainly worth a try!

From somewhere: pours black with a brown head. Aroma is coffee and chocolate and roasty malts. Taste is roasty and a bit bitter. Lots of coffee. Pretty easy to drink. Not sweet. Pretty good.

Pours deep dark brown, virtually black, with thick mocha head that sticks around for a while. The nose is coffee, milk, caramel, roast. Coffee dominates the palate as well, but chocolate asserts itself over the caramel/vanilla notes. Initially, that creates a cafe mocha flavor, but the coffee takes on an espresso bitterness that cuts through the sweetness. While the flavors are rich, the body is very light for what is billed as an imperial stout. I would say porter, but that works well as a coffee drink with minimal carbonation. This is one you can have in warm weather without feeling weighed down.

The aroma is nice espresso, dark chocolate. The appearance is deep black, tan head. The flavor is espresso, dark chocolate, roast. The finish is roasty bitter, bittersweet chocolate. Medium in body, a little thinner than expected for the style. Nice overall.
