4.74/5  rDev +23.4%

Pours from a 22 oz bottle into a tulip- pours a jet black color, thick, with two fingers of mocha colored head, modest retention and beautiful swathes of lacing. Can't ask for any more.

Smell is very smoky- definitely get the chestnuts, some coffee, and a whiff of chocolate in addition to the sturdy smoke background.

Taste is remarkably well balanced and nuanced. Not as much smoke as the nose but still a major player; the chestnuts take a more central role here as well as the rich dark chocolate. Finishes like a truffle; sweet and then a longer semi-sweet aftertaste.

Full bodied, but not cloying, and moderately carbonated. Easy to drink for such a big one, but definitely savor it. It's delicious.

A dark Thick brown head that hangs for a minute, then fades to a ring. Not much lacing but a thin syrupy coating on the sides. Nose is reminiscent of Brooklyn BCS with a bit less alcohol. Heavy chocolate, coffee, roasted grains and slight char. Trace sweet alcohol and burnt sugar. Taste is great. Rich full roasted coffee and dark chocolate. Roasted chestnuts adds nutty smoothness. An english ale yeast I'm guessing by the fruitiness. A bit of plum and fig. Firm bitterness gives a solid finish leaving coffee and earth. Feel is full, velvety and smooth with just the right amount of chew. Goes down way to easy and is supple through the swallow. A great beer for fans of the style. while not a standout it is great with chocolate cake and I would guess softer cheeses, all the usual suspects. Yum

A: The beer is jet black in color. It poured with a quarter finger high dark tan head that gradually died down, leaving a thin film covering the surface and a narrow collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of smoked chestnuts are present in the nose along with hints of chocolate and roasted malts.
T: The taste is similar to the smell but has stronger flavors with additional hints of roasted malts towards the finish. There is a slight amount of bitterness and no alcohol is perceptible. The smoke seems to get a bit stronger as the beer warms up.
M: It feels medium- to full-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is surprisingly easy to drink considering its strength because the alcohol is well hidden from the taste. The smoked chestnuts and chocolate really work well.

Bottle into pfriem tulip - purchased bottle at whole foods port chester, ny for $10.
Nice thick oily black pour with deep tan head. Huuge chocolate and roasted malt aroma - nice English yeast maybe?
Taste is smooth roasty chocolate - its a big brew but super smooth. Yup, another great big stout from Jeppe this time on a great collab with a fantastic chocolatier!

Pours pitch black color with a cascading release of tan bubbles like a Guinness that rush up to a 1 finger creamy/foamy tan head that faded slowly and left really good lacing coating the sides as it slid back down into the brew and settled into a creamy layer on top with spotty lacing remaining on the sides.

Smells like chocolate, cocoa powder, coffee beans, roasted malt/grains, burnt wood, lemon zest or light citrus hops, caramel and light vanilla; the smoky and chocolate notes dominate, and there is no hint of the ABV. Smells like a milk stout due to the strong chocolate notes, but to me it was nice with enough malty complexity to make it enjoyable as the snifter rose towards my face.

Flavor follows suit and like the nose smells like chocolate, cocoa powder, coffee beans, roasted malt/grains, burnt wood, lemon zest, citrus hops, caramel, light vanilla and booze; the smoky and chocolate notes still dominate, but there is more bitterness in the flavor like hops and/or coffee like a Starbucks were poured in the mix. There is no hint of the ABV, but the chestnuts listed on the bottle do show up and dance around like a drunk freshmen at a fall pledge party. Strong chocolate notes, roasted or smoked grains and coffee bitterness finish off each sip, but it was enjoyable and very flavorful getting better as it warmed.

Mouthfeel is thick and chewy, like a dense old brew that would move like syrup, with very mild carbonation, a slick and almost watery feel across the tongue and a roasted, bitter aftertaste that is a combo of cocoa, coffee, citrus and burnt grains – this leaves a similar taste that mirrors finishing a Starbucks bold in the morning, so today I started and ended my day with the same great taste.

Overall I really liked this stout, which was dynamic with bold robust flavors that hid the alcohol and yet provided a buzz; this is a great dessert beer, and at $6.99/bottle it was a bargain and worth seeking out. I like what Evil Twin is pushing and will grab some more of their beers as this and Even More Jesus were very good stouts.
