look: 5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

This is one of those rare beers that is perfect form. The appearance is pitch black with a frothy milk chocolate colored head. The beer's taste and smell are quintessential dark chocolate bitterness. The mouthfeel is perfectly creamy and full until the finish, which rolls off with a very appealing astringency and ashiness. There's also a nice lightly sweetened oily espresso quality to the beer which is delightful. The aftertaste makes the beer a great slow sipper. Very good showing. Evil twin never ceases to satisfy. Could they be the masters of imperial stouts? Who the hell knows. Definitely try.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A strangely named beer, I think. I could understand "Even MORE... Jesus!" or "Even more, Jesus", but "Even More Jesus" is a name I'd like to get lectured on. But alright, whatever, fine, it's just a name. I got a bomber priced at a damn pricey $15.99... I'd complain more, but when I got Imperial Doughnut Break from the same store it was $17.99. Poured into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint. After having Imperial Biscotti Break and Imperial Doughnut Break (the former of which was one of my all-time favorite stouts), I saw this and had to get my hands on it... even for the price. I may not have done it ordinarily, but I missed KBS this year, and wanted to try my hand at some highly regarded Imperial Stouts.

Appearance: Black. Only a bit of ruby even when I poured it, it's so dark. A really nice half finger head that stays, surprisingly. Virtually no lacing, but that's not a problem. Lovely pitch black color with a dark brown head. The pour was viscous... just looks dangerous.

Smell: Caramel and chocolate sort of smells dominate also with a sort of mocha aroma when the head's still around. Dark fruits as well, but in a very slight way. Kind of reminds me of how a Milky Way may smell if it were in a beer. I definitely get a brown sugar/molasses sort of sweetness from the muscovado that's in this beer. As the beer warms and the head goes away, it's just a lot of brown sugar sweetness, dark chocolate, raisins, and a pretty apparent smell of alcohol.

Taste/feel: That's a big one. A lot of chocolate with dark fruits and a lot of sticky sweetness on the front, with a great aftertaste. Just a huge, awesome roasted coffee sort of flavor with a slight char flavor and a really nice bitterness. This beer also has a very obvious alcohol presence, though it's not overly done. It can be tasted a little bit, and can certainly be felt. The feel on this one I'm not finding to be as thick as many others do, but it is pretty velvety with very, very little carbonation. Even if the ABV of this were knocked down to 8%, this beer is most definitely a sipper.

I know I've rated this beer as "outstanding" overall, because it is, but for the price, and knowing Evil Twin's quality of their Imperial Stouts, I expected something legendary. I didn't think this would quite stand up to the Imperial Biscotti Break anyway, but it's actually quite a ways off, as it turns out. This is an incredibly complex beer with a lot going on (a sort of dark fruit tanginess, muscovado sweetness, roasty bitterness, velvet mouthfeel, caramel and chocolate nose [at least initially]), and I can more than appreciate this beer, but I somehow got my expectations too high.

If you love Imperial Stouts, I don't need to tell you to try this beer. It's certainly pricey, but this beer does have a little something about it that's different than many others "up there" in the style. The problem with this beer is that it's just really quite expensive. A bourbon barrel aged version of this beer would, like most in the style, have me bumping up the crucial categories by at least a quarter of a point. Still, as it is now, it's certainly worth a look -- just don't quite expect a mind blower.

EDIT: I'm actually going to go ahead and bump up the taste and overall by a quarter of a point here. In the past, I seemed to always prefer a colder Imperial Stout because I felt it had more desirable flavors, but in this beer, the phenomenal aftertaste is somehow made better.

A- Black with a brown head that fades quickly leaving little to no lacing.

T- Whoa, chocolate. Roasted malts/coffee are also up front. Alcohol is barely noticeable. A slight bitterness going down.

M- Full, rich and decadent, but very smooth. The alcohol is so well masked here. Incredible, really.

O- This is at or near the top Imperial Stouts I've had. A winner, no doubt.

Heard a lot of good things about this beer, so as soon as I saw it I just had to buy one.

Looks great with a thick, dark head that looks like chocolate mousse.

Aroma is awesome with fudgy brownies, a little marshmallow, chocolate, coffee and dark fruit such as cherries and raspberries.

Flavor is the same as aroma. Alcohol is nowhere to be found, making the drinkability quite high. A little sweeter than I usually like, but now I am nit-picking.

Overall I really liked this beer. Once I had tried enough to make a review, I took about 1/2 oz of Eagle Rare bourbon and added it to the beer. Wow, talk about making your very own bourbon stout without shelling out the money for one. Try it, guys and girls. You won't be disappointed.

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

A - Black, dark brown head has good retention and some lacing.

S/T - Roasted coffee/malts roll into bitter dark chocolate mid palate, finishing with a chocolate syrup sweetness that has minimal bitterness. Booze heat kicks in the finish, maybe a little too much for my taste.

M - Huge body, lower carb level, Leaves the mouth coated, but the booze dries it up a touch.

O - Pretty good stuff here. The booze presence is bit much for my preference, but this is kind of expected with the abv.

On tap at Monk's.

Very attractive beer, appeared jet black in the dark light of the bar, topped with a thick, creamy cap of mocha head, which retained well; a few dots of lacing and some unctuous legs on the glass. This is how I like my stouts to look. Roasty aroma, coffee, chocolate fudge, toasted oatmeal, boozy notes. In the taste, roasty coffee and dark malts, cream, dark chocolate, a lactose-like sweetness, toasted oats, a hit of neutral alcohol, and an ashy burnt marshmallow presence in the background. Overall bittersweet, with the roast balancing out the sugars. Medium body, a bit thinned out with booze, but still decent and not too hot. Pretty good overall, but nothing that really blew me away.

look: 2.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours black with half a finger of dark brown head that fades into a thin ring with no lacing.

S: Roasted malts dominated with sweet chocolate milk notes along with some aromas of vanilla and cocoa powder. Not much going on, but what's there is nice.

T: Roasted malts first and foremost here as well with semi-sweet chocolate, some bitter char, a bit of vanilla, and a molasses-like finish that is sticky and with a decent alcohol warmth.

M: Super viscous body with low carbonation, this beer is sticky and smooth.

O: A good imperial stout overall. I'd like a little more balance and less booze and sweetness, but what's there is nice.

4.44/5  rDev +4.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

A: 22oz bottle casually poured into a stone RIS snifter, produceing about an inch of foam that very slowly recedes. Swirling the glass shows slick alcohol leaving only traces of the mocha like foam.

S: Damn. Really impressive. To be honest I had no intention of reviewing this beer, but once I smelled it, I figured I'd give it a quick review. Toasty graham cracker abounds (my favorite!), backed up by some bitter chocolates, maybe a little dark fruit, some molasses, and a nice touch of smokiness that I've noticed in jeppe's stouts consistently.

T: Toasty marshmallows, a ton of rich chocolate, and more dark raisin notes. Even though this is not as syrupy as a ba double stout, in conjunction with the mouthfeel, the taste takes me to the idea of a fudge or brownie preparation, not just a one dimensional "ok this reminds me of chocolate."

M: Another "wow" for this category. Whipped cream or fluffy marshmallows, just really really creamy, it's not lactic, but has a milky character that's pleasant. Once it's down, there's competing bitter chocolate notes, and just a touch of pleasant alcohol.

O:As with every evil twin stout I've tried, the only thing holding me back from stocking up on a case is the price tag. Definitely worth trying at least once. I can't really think of a non BA'd imp stout that i liked as much as this, but I thought this is in the same league as (and similar to) ba boris.

Very good beer, I'd love to find a BA variant.

4.48/5  rDev +5.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

A: Poured from the bomber into a Piraat tulip/stemmed-snifter-type glass. Body appears black and thick on the pour. A 1.5-finger tight-bubbled brown head settles on top and recedes to leave behind some legs of lace.

S: First impression is of rum-soaked dark fruits. As it warms I get dried fruits and chocolate.

T: Big chocolatey malt with molasses, dark chocolate and fudge brownies. Some roasted barley malt, which at times crosses over into burnt coffee beans or even charcoal. Fruitiness makes me think of chocolate-covered black cherries. Finishes with modest bitterness which, along with the drying alcohol, creates a nice counterbalance to the sweetness of the malt. Warmth felt in the belly after a few sips, which is no surprise given the 12% ABV.

M: Silky smooth; quite nice in the feel. Not sure I've ever had such a heavy-bodied RIS/Double-Imperial Stout feel so light on the palate. Definitely a heavyweight, but it drinks much lighter.

O: Very good.

Had at the blind tiger- pours a thick pitch black with a finger of very dark brown head, which quickly receded and left little lacing.

Smell is decadent- roasted coffee, chocolate,a little caramel sweetness.

Tastes delicious- super rich and roasty and sweet. But not cloying at all. Just really decadent. Tastes like Belgian dark chocolate truffles with coffee and caramel.

Full bodied and light carbonation. I love evil twin and while this is no bourbon imperial biscotti break, because really what is, it is still a delicious stout. If you see it,you should drink it.

4.6/5  rDev +8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a bottle into a Stone IRS snifter. The pour is viscous, opaque, and as black as night with about a finger of dark brown head that, while thin (despite a rough pour), does have good retention. Really rich nose with lots of charred fruit, bakers chocolate, coffee, burnt cake, and some boozy notes.

Wow! Intense IRS flavors and super creamy feel. Up front are lots of rich malty flavors of toffee, molasses, and fudge. Roastiness comes in with charred notes, dark fruit, and espresso beans and adds complexity. So far, it's a run-of-the-mill top-shelf RIS, but on the back of the palate the creamy feel just goes to a whole other level and you are hit with flavors of milk chocolate and sweet cream. They play off on the roasty notes and soften the flavors and hide the booze in a manner one rarely finds in this style. All of the aforementioned flavors are left dripping from the roof of our mouth on finishing, with a hint of alcohol warmth.

A spectacular beer, especially for fans of Russian Imperial Stouts who sometimes feel like they've tasted 'em all. I have been thoroughly impressed with all of the "Jesus" beers I've had from Evil Twin. Not only is this one no exception, it might be the best of the bunch.

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.

The beer comes in a dark black color with tons of beautiful lacing. Very thick. A big brown head.

The aroma has this huge fruit aroma. Almost of musty and fermented grapes or berries, raisins. Dried pomegranate. A roasty malt.

The flavor follows with chocolate, roasted malt, molasses, brownies. There are tons of fruit esters that follow. Dark plums, raisins. The alcohol is well hidden. The finish is very clean with lots of chocolate.

The mouthfeel is huge and luscious. Absolutely huge mouthfeel.

Evil Twin never ceases to amaze with their incredible stouts/porters.

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)

Got this one at the De Molen beer shop. Cheers PP!

From a bomber into a snifter
Brewed at Westbrook

APPEARANCE: A thick, sludgy black pour yields a 1+ finger, medium looking, foamy, crackly, mocha colored head with good retention. Pitch black body with a piss ton of carbonation. Head slowly fades to a thick, dense cap but continues to snap and crackle. Swirly wisp and ring remain leaving dots of lacing down the glass. Really thick and black, but too carbonated and the head is a little obnoxious.

SMELL: Smells like a gem. Roasted grains, molasses, roasted espresso beans and dark baker's chocolate. Toffee notes as well. Lots of roast, chocolate and molasses. Big nose and just my style.

TASTE: Roasted flavors and sweet molasses initially, lots of it, with some alcohol and sweet toffee up front. Very roasted. Huge flavors on the swallow with more roasted grain, burnt espresso beans, dark, bitter chocolate, with sweet molasses, toffee, and a burst of booze at the finish. Bitter-sweet finish lingers and lingers, with lots of roasted flavors to boot. A touch boozier than hoped perhaps, but this is extremely flavorful with all the ingredients I love in an imperial stout. Fantastic.

PALATE: Medium-full body with medium levels of carbonation. Enough weight on the palate, very creamy and oily, slick and silky, goes down smooth and silky with a slight burn at the swallow and finishes very sticky. A touch cloying perhaps, but not at all off-putting. Fits the flavor profile well. Some heat lingers. Great.

OVERALL: Credit it due where credit it due. Whether Jeppe was alone on this one, this brew is absolutely wonderful. Really big, roasted and sweet, much reminding me of CCB's Zhukov, with a good deal of bitter flavors to balance it out perfectly. Solid, full, creamy feel too, which supports the whole show. Perhaps a touch too boozy, but this is a minor complaint. An imperial stout that ticks almost all the major aspects for me flavor-wise, and comes dam close in all the other categories as well. Well worth checking out if you get the chance, and I wish I could buy more of this stuff. Highly, highly recommended.

pours a dark black with a creamy head. coffee and chocolate aroma...and its big. taste is huge and boozy with a good amount of chocolate too. maybe a bit too big though, as the ABV is apparent. full bodied, almost viscous feel. low carbonation.

To any stout enthusiasts... Evil Twin set the standard for stouts with this dark aromatic beer. I'm Pretty new to fine beers focusing mainly on stouts. I've had my fair share of stouts and I'll admit this one caught me off guard. I had thought i kne the general taste of a stout until this amazingly dark gift from god touched my lips.

330ml bottle purchased from Platinum Liquor in Bellevue Hill. It's been some time since I bought it, but I thought the time was right to crack it open. Shared with Sam.

Pours a gooey, deep, rich black-brown colour, with a head that only forms languidly some time after the initial pour, but which consists of tiny mocha-chocolate bubbles that stay firm on the top of the glass. Body is rich. Carbonation is dark and fine. It looks the business.

Nose is a little bit of a let-down to be honest: big roasted characters come through giving it a stern backbone of darkness, but the sweetness is taken up by a somewhat unfortunate green apple character. This is minor, and there are other slick things which cover it: toasty raisin bread, coffee, high-cocoa chocolate. Overall, it survives, but it's not the blissful aroma that it could have been.

Taste is very good, however: supple and rich, heading strongly towards a dark bittersweet chocolate character. There's no room for deep oaky sweetness here, it gets all the sweetness it needs from the chocolate characters, and that's only sparing. Otherwise, plenty of booze, a smouldering roast smoke character and slick oily feel round this out and make it full and intoxicating.

Yeah, it had some hiccups, but overall, it pulled off a pretty neat performance. There's plenty to enjoy here no matter what, and if you're a fan of a big boozy stout, you're probably going to have some fun with it.

A: Pours an opaque jet black in color that is very viscous with just a light amount of gentle visible carbonation along the edges of the glass. The beer has a two finger tall dense foamy extremely dark mocha head that slowly reduces to a thick film covering the entire surface of the beer with a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Strong aromas of bittersweet chocolate with moderate aromas of roasted malts and dark fruits (plum, fig, and raisin). Light notes of molasses/brown sugar sweetness.

T: Upfront there are moderate to strong flavors of roasted malts with strong flavors of bittersweet and milk chocolate. There is a light to moderate flavor of molasses and brown sugar contributing to the sweetness along with some dark fruits (fig and plum) towards the finish. Light amounts of bitterness in the finish but it fades pretty quickly.

M: Full bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth with light amounts of alcohol warming in the finish.

O: There is a very nice amount of complexity to the flavors and aromas of this beer and it is pretty easy to drink - the alcohol is well hidden and the beer is not overly sweet or bitter. Definitely worth grabbing again.

I just didn't get enough Jesus the first time around... Anyway, this stuff pours a very dark and bleak black-brown topped by a finger of light tan foam. The nose comprises deeply-roasted malts, dark molasses, coffee, light chocolate powder, and a firm sense of booze. The taste brings in more of the same, the booze mixing with some of the roast to make something akin to a whiskey character. The body is a light hefty, with a light moderate carbonation and a sorta/kinda drying finish. Overall, this stuff definitely took a page from Mikkeller's Black series, given the depth of roast and heft of booze, but it still works, a strong and enjoyable drink for those who really like their stouts to pack a wallop.

A: Dark as the gates of hell. A slight brown bubbles and a tiny rim on brown head but besides that nothing: Just a silky black syrupy mess in a glass.

S: Darrk brown sugars and molasses are all over his gem. Sweetness up front followed by more sweetness and dark sugars and a smooth light cocoa like bar after that is very I retesting and attractive.

T: So so smooth and drinkable for his 12 % brew. A lot of dark brown sugar with a good roasty character but mainly lead by sweetness of deep dark sugars like molasses and dark dark fruits.

M: Feel is great with a warm finish and a sweet slightly roasty finish. Very satisfying brew and delicious.

O: A very swee stout with not mutch roastiness, like I was expecting, but will, a great sipper and winter warmer for the obsessed Evil Twin fan boy.
