4.43/5  rDev +4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

eyes...
pours like motor oil, you can see bubbles conforming in spires in the bottom of the glass circled round the edges, dark brown foam that audibly sizzles and minds its manners right quick, the foam retreats into the deep dark depth slinking backwards into a miniscule o-ring of shame, she has legs and well you know the ZZ top song so why should I have to type that here? maybe I'm crazy but this just felt heavy pouring it into the glass, a nice dementedly dark den of decadence to be done here.

nose...
licorice and prunes, dark cocoa nibs, some smoke, I am oddly enough getting some notes of wood - dank wood, you know sort of musty-ish with the of scent of actual mold, the alcohol peeks through just a hair letting you know this is some party you have paid the cover charge for. nice smelling, strong chocolate (bitter) and some definite molasses going on (I'm not going to pretend that I know what Muscavado sugar is, sure, I could google it - I here that is what the kids are doing today).

taste etc...
I don't remember jesus being this thick... almost chalky cocoa flavor with really heightened bitter notes piercing the back quarters of my mouth, full on ABV kick to the groin but you don't necessarily taste it (yay jesus!), silky smooth in the mouth and it bears weight as well, a really full mouth going on here, like a chocolate bar dipped in molasses, this almost reminds me of some dark rums out of the Caribbean except no alcohol flavor, sure there is big sweetness here but the bitter and chocolate flavors completely balance out this one mother of a beast, this has great bitterness without hops screwing up the chocolate/roast flavors... damn this is tasty.

verdict?
This is the Black Jesus ! I knew the guy could turn water into wine but damn this is more impressive. This is buddy christ of beers, he instantly cheers you up. This beer is fantastic, a must have, a can not miss, a trade your sister for. this belongs among the great imp stouts I have had... I will clearly be seeking more next time I am up in upstate NY (found this @ oliver's in albany) (2,084 characters)

Bottle shared with a friend. I’m not lying when I say this: We played beer pong with this beer at a Halloween party. Yes, that’s right. The beer pours a black with a toffee colored head. Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate, and roasted malts. Taste of milk chocolate, coffee, and dark roasted malts. Very delicious. I don’t recommend playing beer pong with it. (362 characters)

Tar black. Though it's too dark too see anything, there is enough intrepid carbonation to feed a lasting tobacco brown head. The height and durability of it is remarkable given the strength of the liquid below.
The nose brings fudge brownies, bakers cocoa, carob, black rum, soy sauce, brown sugar, root vegetables, vanilla cream, and whispers of peat smoke. For what it is, the nose is a touch less assertive and not as aggressively boozy as I would have guessed. But it teases out its nuances as it nears room temperature.
It rolls over and coats the tongue with molasses, prune, dark chocolate, grilled sweet potatoes and carob. Irish coffee and smoke notes gather midway, but it never tends any direction other than sweet. Booze bring blackstrap rum, hints of a well-aged Islay, and a surprising lack of actual burn.
There is a great depth and width of flavor here. And most of it is laid bare initially. It's overridingly sweet (yet, miraculously non-cloying) nature begins as is touches the tastebuds and lingers well past the swallow. It's complexies are largely gradients of the same color. Cocoa sweet, latte sweet, dark fruit sweet, then boozy sweet. But it works, as smoke adds a shrouding counterbalance.
It drinks like slightly carbonated brownie batter, which actually prevents the sweet and the alcohol content from overwhelming, as they are spread out over time.
It's as unsubtle as its name, but it lives up to it. (1,455 characters)

. . . . Even. . . . More . . . . Jesus . . . .

With Westbrook brewing this right around the corner for Evil Twin, I could not resist this Christmas treat. Is this a godly inspiration, or scurrilous sacrilege? I may not want to know the answer to that. But I do intend to find out! All I can say is this brew better be divine, because it pours as dark as the abyss. Any light that goes in is never coming back. Akin to the motor oil in my first Fiero that went an impressive 2 years without being changed or seizing the engine. The head is an inch of dark coffee foam that settles quickly, leaving behind a trace of chocolate lacing and an inviting ring of dense bubbles around the perimeter. The aroma is complex. Salty soy sauce and rich dark fudge. Hints of black cherry mocha with Jordan almonds. The alcohol is surprisingly well-masked but the vapor does emanate from the glass (warning that you are about to indulge in something sinful). The flavor is intense. It coats the entire palate with an explosion of deep roasted coffee, semi-sweet cocoa, rum-soaked figs, and an acrid char. There is a graham-cracker breadiness that hides beneath the smoky veneer.This is incredibly delicious. I feel as though a campfire, replete with smores and an evening of happiness, has just poured in to my mouth. The texture is black velvet cream, with an understated yet fine carbonation. Merry Christmas. I will be saying my prayers tonight... for Even More Jesus. (1,458 characters)

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: Black as night with one of the darkest brown heads I've ever seen.

S: Thick layers of chocolate, roast, caramel and dried dark fruits along with a light licorice note. There is also a moderate coffee aroma and malt sweetness. The moderate alcohol sweetness is surprisingly well hidden until it warms up just a touch.

T: Strong chocolate, caramel, dark fruit and roast up front. A medium hops bitterness along with some roast bitterness that are countered by a moderately strong caramel malt sweetness giving a balance that is light tilled towards the bitter. The finish is off-sweet with lingering flavors of dark roasted grains and alcohol.

M: A very warming, full bodied beer with a medium level of carbonation.

O: Chocolate, caramel, dark fruit and roast dominate in almost overwhelming quantitates with the alcohol being clearly noticeable in the flavor and warming mouth feel. (888 characters)
