Bottle at DBGB Kitchen & Bar, New York, NY

A: The beer is jet black in color and poured with just a thin ring of mocha-colored bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: There are aromas of bittersweet chocolate and dark fruits in the nose along with some hints of brown sugar.
T: Like the smell, the taste is rather complex with flavors of bittersweet chocolate, brown sugar and roasted malts and has a light amount of bitterness. Notes of dark fruits are most evident towards the finish.
M: It feels full-bodied and rather smooth on the palate with a low to moderate amount of carbonation. Warming from the alcohol is apparent in the finish.
O: Despite its strength, this beer lacks any noticeable malty sweetness and retains a nice amount of bitterness and roasted flavors, which help to keep it drinkable.

"Ooh my God" and "really" are the first things to come to mind with the very first taste of this luscious and viscous stout as those savory chocolate, coffee and creamy-sweet flavors wash over the palate- each wave setting the taste buds into a sultry trance like no other.

The pour alone tells the senses that we're in trouble. Its ultra dense creamy character struggles to separate the mocha-rich head from the milk chocolate-like creaminess underneath. As the bark-brown beer stratifies, its froth is like meringue as it caps the beer with a stubborn mousse. Each sip of the beer layers ring upon ring of foam on the glass in classic Belgian-like fashion.

Its incredible nose and early palate is awash with wholesome chocolate, coffee, and toasted toffee goodness. Its a perfect bridge of where Stout meets bittersweet chocolate- full with candied walnuts, malted milkshake, heavy whipping cream, and a pep of fudge. As the Stout marches across the palate, it turns meekly from sweet creaminess and into dark masculinity- equipped with smooth earthen bitterness, cocoa richness, and Kahlua.

Ridiculously thick, chewy, and highly viscous- the malty weight of the beer is felt loud and clear. Similar to sucking a milkshake through a straw, this beer drinks similarly as the marshmallowy textures are creamy, rich, and full. A modest transition to warmth only signal a light bitter woodish dryness as the taste of coffee and chocolate continue to play out on a firm pillow of malt.

Even More Jesus is an incredible ale that's truly a meal in a class. Yet it's its balance that proves the point with each seductive sip, one right after the other. The beer really puts you in a trance.

The pour is black in color with a small tan head. Not a big fan on the nose. heavy on char, smoke, and roasted malt. A bit of alcohol, too. Some burnt sugar and mild dark chocolate. The flavor is also quite smokey and charred, maybe some ash. Burnt sugar, licorice, and molasses give a bit of sweetness. Lots of coffee and a bit of dark chocolate.

This poured out is an oily black color with a light brown head on top. The retention and lacin is thing but decent. The smell of the beer had a lot of roasted chocolate and some musty aromas. The taste had some burnt coffee-like flavors with a subtle sweetness to it. The mouthfeel is thick oily and lightly carbonated. Overall it's a pretty solid stout, decent but not great.

Served in a tumbler.

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.

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 from West Lakeview Liquors. Served in a Hill Farmstead tulip.

A - Very dark mocha foam settles to a thin collar, some wisps, and a few specks of lace. Body is pitch black and opaque.

S - Dark chocolate, licorice, some sort of cane sugar, dark fruits, dark pumpernickel-esque breads, chocolate cake and fudge.

T - The taste has a lot of yeasty dark bread, with dark chocolate cake, and a bitter anise and char finish. Less sweetness than in the aroma, with a touch of dark fruits and a hint of umami.

M - Medium-full body, with lower carbonation. Lightly sticky texture yields to a lightly dry finish. Alcohol is fairly well-hidden at 12%.

D - Pretty nice stuff, with a good balance of roasty, sweet, and bitter flavors. Very rich, but fairly easy to drink for the ABV - had no problem finishing my 6oz. I'm surprised how much of a house flavor Evil Twin has even though the beers are brewed around the world. Pricey, but worth trying once.

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.

I had this on-tap during Baltimore beer week. Served in a sample glass.

Appearance: The beer pours almost black with a layer of tan head. The head fades away rather quickly.

Smell: Right away I'm getting some roast and a mild hop bitterness. The sweetness shows up behind the bitter notes with a hint of dark fruit in the mix as well.

Taste: Sweet right off the bat, but it takes a very bitter turn rather quickly. Roasted malt notes that taste just a bit burnt. I'm also getting some coffee and a hop bitterness in the finish. The malt sweetness is there throughout the whole sip, but bitter flavors win the day.

Mouthfeel: The body is syrupy with tingly carbonation and a dry finish. I would have liked the carbonation to be a bit stronger given the thick body.

Overall: For me, this beer was too bitter. I thought it was well done assuming that's what they were going for, but it's not really my thing. I would have liked more balance.

Had this last night with Jeppe at the Max's Baltimore Beer Week event.

In comparison to the Even More Jesus I would say this has a tiny bit more smoke flavor while the Even is a little bit smoother and slightly more vinous.

Definitely worth seeking out.

1 pint 6 fl oz brown glass bottle with stylish understated label art and pry-off pressure cap (unbranded) acquired at a SoCal bottle shop for $17.00 (ouch!) and served into a flared stem-snifter/tulip hybrid glass in me gaff in low altitude Los Feliz, Los Angeles, California. Reviewed live. Expectations are high; I loved imperial biscotti break. 12% ABV confirmed. Imported by Twelve Percent LLC.

A: Pours a gorgeous rich tan-brown colour head, one finger in width. Amazing mocha creaminess; wow. Fantastic thickness. Shiny soft complexion. Even consistent thick lacing coats the sides of the glass as the head recedes. Head retention is pretty respectable given the high ABV; about 1-2 minutes - forgivable.

Body colour is an opaque jet black. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show.

Love the colour and the appearance overall. Wow.

Sm: Rich chocolate, unrefined sugars, molasses, roast, dark malts, chocolate malt, dark fruit (dates in particular), marshmallow, cream, and maybe a hint of fennel.

Not getting any yeast character, hop character, or alcohol off the aroma.

Overall, it's a pleasant aroma - and surprisingly light. Not the most evocative, but the notes are there if you really look deeply.

T: Dark chocolate, chocolate malt, marshmallow, unrefined sugars somewhere between pimoncello and a darker molasses-like sugar, treacle, subtle caramel, molasses, vague dark fruit (definitely dates, but I don't get much in terms of plum or fig), a kiss of fudge, light buried truffle, dark malts, and very buried roast. On the sweeter end but by no means cloying. Pretty well balanced, with interesting complexity and some subtlety to the execution. I quite like it. Certainly a rich flavour profile.

Depth of flavour is above average. Intensity and duration of flavour are average for the style, but high overall.

Not all burnt or charred. No smokiness. The label claims it has a note of coffee, but I'm not getting that at all from the taste - which is a bit odd. Just a bit of alcohol does come through. No yeast or hop character does.

Mf: Silky and creamy. Wet. Unrefreshing. A biteen gooey. Slightly overcarbonated, but it's forgivable. Complements the flavour profile nicely. Not harsh, gushed, or biting. Nicely thick. Sticky. Chewy.

Dr: Drinkable and enjoyable; I'll have little trouble killing this bottle alone - and that says something at 12%. A solid stout from Evil Twin, but I do prefer Imperial Biscotti Break. It's a tasty beer well worth trying for fans of the style, but I find it falls well short of the greats.

By the time I poured the last of it into my glass, there was a turd-like clump of wet yeast left in the bottle. So it seems to be bottle conditioned, and development with age should be anticipated.

Constructively, the sweetness and richness undercut drinkability. And better beers in the style have a lot more going on in terms of complexity and subtlety, whilst attaining a better execution of balance.

B-
