Because JP tends to get really good boilovers when he brews he usually makes high gravity beers whether he intends to or not. It may have something to do with consumption while brewing, not that any of us know anything about that. The result is always a starting gravity that is higher than anticipated. We put the beer on tap in the shop and it got rave reviews. It was both outstanding and unique. Sometimes things do happen for a reason! The beer can easily be described as a Porter on steroids. This kit has a lot of grain in it, so you may find two grain bags useful.

From my sister: "Best Beer I ever had"
Good Lord! I made this one Approx 8 months prior to serving. Bottled not kegged, and ended with an ABV that the yeast could not survive in. Added Champagne yeast to try and help but ended with very low carbonation, however the taste and mouthfeel more than made up for that flaw. Next time I will keg and force carb with Nitro. I agree that this is a great beer and the best I ever made.

Very rich and satisfying
Very complex beer with a high ABV. Nice roasty flavor and great for the cold winter months.

JP's one of the finest
I have lost track of the number of times that I have brewed this Imperial Porter. It is one of the finest beers that I have ever brewed! I add 4 oz. of espresso just prior to bottling to give it just a little bit more complexity. Condition it and it becomes like a fine wine!

Nice beer so far....
I brewed this one a couple weeks ago. I'm going to let it sit int he keg for a good 6 months. What I did taste out of the secondary was great! Ad the gravity was right on.
