330ml bottle. "He doesn't look a thing like Jesus..." And neither does this, other than the fractured English babble in the marketing spiel about mortality, godliness, and the typical qualities of a big-ass stout.

This beer pours a beautifully cascading black hole abyss, bereft of highlights and that thing called light, with three hefty fingers of densely foamy, tightly bubbly, solid brown head, which leaves some agreeably frenetic paint-splash lace around the glass as it very slowly sinks away.

It smells of sweet roasted caramel/toffee malt, well-ripened black fruit, thick, gooey dark chocolate, dark tropical sugar, milk-tempered coffee, and a further dry smokiness, all soused by a brandy-like booziness. The taste is more sweet, sugary caramel malt, a hint of treacle, a drunken plum and prune fruitiness, heavy chocolate pudding, over-sugared black coffee, a withering smoky astringency, and bristling warming alcohol.

The carbonation is tame, and frothy by the same measure, the body a heavy, dense, somewhat oily affair, with an attendant smoothness that belies the big ABV, not to mention the subtle malt-shop creaminess. It finishes on the veritably sweet side, the chocolate, creme caramel, and thick black fruit puree holding fast against the baying booze.

One hell of an Imperial stout, all those dessert-esque qualities doing a right good job in sublimating the well-elevated ABV. Even more this, and even more that, but I'm still at a loss in figuring out how they managed to work Jesus' name into all of this. Oh, right - people do that all the freaking time. Damned good beer though.

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.

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.

. . . . 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.

~2.5 year old bottle

A - Dark black pour with a dark khaki head that pours half a finger high. Low lace and retention.

S - Sweet nose with Belgian candied sugar, brown breads, dark dried fruits, and a touch of gingerbread.

T - Molasses, pumpernickel bread, dark caramel, touch of roast and smoke, soy sauce, a little woody balsamic, and dark brown sugar. Do I detect frankincense and myrrh?

M - Silky smooth, medium-full frame.

O - A solid, roasty and mildly sweet imperial stout.

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.

A rich beer that leaves me wanting more. Usually these big rich stouts are a one and done due to the sweetness and thickness. This was not one of those. Wood, chocolate, smoke, coffee, hints of vanilla all meld seamlessly in this beer. Worth the price to drop on a bottle and experience for yourself.
