Milk / Sweet Stout |  8.00% ABV

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes/Commercial Description:
Imagine the rich roasted malts, smooth mouth feel and subtle sweetness of our award-winning Milk Stout, kicked up a notch or two, by the infusion of dark-roasted, small batch coffee from our friends at Lancaster County 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 Stout's rowdy big sister.

A: The beer is very close to being jet black in color—only traces of red are visible near the bottom of the glass when it is held up to the light. It poured with a quarter finger high creamy tan head that died down but consistently left a short head covering the surface and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of lactose, black licorice and espresso are present in the nose.
T: The taste starts out with initial flavors of lactose but flavors of roasted espresso are prevalent in the back end. The espresso becomes stronger as the beer warms up.
M: It feels medium-bodied and smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer has a really nice mouthfeel and makes for a good breakfast beer if you want something that can wake you up on a weekend. Any traces of alcohol are very well hidden.
