"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. (1,688 characters)

look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: First stout I've drank with a chocolaty head; 1-finger. Even after froth settles, it remains a brown shade. Beer itself is very dark; black.

S: Heavy on the mocha with a hint of licorice and maple syrup. Some citrus tingles the noes

T: Like eating a dark chocolate bar; sweet but not overpowering. Hint of coffee, but more chocolate. Licorice and citrus as an aftertaste.

M: Thick, creamy, and malty. Bitter hops come later but doesn't last.

O: I want more. This stout tickles my senses. It's quite strong too, but misleading because there's not much alcohol taste. *thumbs up* a very nice beer. Cheers! (611 characters)

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

22 oz bottle, served in FW Barrelworks teku

A - Pours thick dark black, with a 3 finger dark coffee head. This is one dark and thick beer, very impressive on the pour, you can not deny it.

S - Toasted dark malts, bitter chocolate, dark fruit and burnt molasses. Smoked meats are a minor tone.

T - Sweet and roasty, hints of burnt sugar, rum, molasses and dark fruits through out.

M -Thick, viscous, and most definitely chewy. Coats throughout, this one saturates the palate. Nothing thin here.

O - Rather enjoyable, hits all the right notes for an Imperial Stout. Would definitely recommend and seek out again. (620 characters)

4.5/5  rDev +5.9%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

A: Wow, one of the thickest pours ever. It reminds me of 30,000 mile motor oil. 50W. In subzero temperatures. It doesn't even splash as I pour it, it's just a black hole of beer, absorbing the droplets that would have spattered. Jet black pour with the darkest head on a beer I've ever seen. Huge, thick head to boot. The head is so dark that it's indistinguishable from the liquid for a little bit. Even after the head has sat for a while it's still darker than 95% of other stouts. Head fades super slowly with great retention. Body is so dark it looks like it's staining the glass when you swirl it. Spotty little bits of lacing is the only reason this doesn't get a 5. Only beer that has a better appearance that I can recall, is CBS.

S: Heavy, heavy black patent malt. Dark fruits, anise, char, chocolate and coffee. All of it. Quite a bit smoke with some umami too. It's comically thick, swirling it for aroma looks like you're trying to swirl a glass of brownie batter. Surprisingly mellow aroma overall for a 12% IS.

T: Again with the heavy roasted malt character. Tastes a lot like it looks - brownie batter. Heavy dark chocolate with a little coffee initially. Fades into some anise and a little char. No real discernible dark fruits as in the aroma, maybe a flash of raisin and cherry here and there. Might be in my mind. Smokiness and umami are still there but very light, thankfully. Lots of dark chocolate in the finish. Sweet all the way through but not cloying somehow. A bit of stinging alcohol throughout and it warms the belly immediately. This is a big one. Lingering dark chocolate brownies in the aftertaste.

M: Ultra heavy body, perhaps one of the thickest beers I've ever tasted (and I've reviewed over 1000). I'm not being cute when I say it's like used motor oil or brownie batter - it literally is. Coats the mouth for a long time between sips. Smooth and creamy at the same time.

O: Very interesting. A seriously heavy beer. I've had much higher ABV stouts (WWS, chocolate rain, etc) but somehow this one feels like a ton of bricks. Gotta be the thickest beer I've seen, ten fidy has nothing on this. Great testament to roasted malt flavors, they're all here. It's complex in its simplicity. Having said that, I imagine a barrel treatment to cut this one a bit might put this one off the scale. Here's to hoping they do someday! Great dessert beer and Evil Twin's best beer by far. Just awesome. (2,428 characters)

Had 2 bottles of this wonder gem from Evil Twin the other day and I have to tell you,,
This thick pour of this Dark imperial stout had a nice brown head to it and was rich in its delivery..
Its honey and mollasses texture tasted of that rich, and a little heavy as a hint of coco and molasses kept on the back of the tongue.
what a great brew by evil twin , and I must say I can't wait to see what comes out next.

cheers , may I recommend, Evil Twin Ashtray heart, Evil Twin Soft DK, Evil Twin Lil B, and Evil Twin New Years eve at a Hotel Room (545 characters)

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

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. (1,610 characters)

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

Bottle for the American market, bought from the De Molen webshop.
Poured with all the yeast.

Pours a very very dark brown, viscous.

Look pitch black in the glass with a dark mocca head that fades quickly.
Some carbonation visible as the foam is gone.

Smells very rich and complex.
Big roasted malts (British in a way), dark fruits (plums, dates, figs, raisins you name it) and coffee. A pretty big overall caramel/toffee sweetness. Vanilla. Burnt notes.

Tastes very good. Very sweet, Chocolate but also dark fruitiness. Yeah, delicious chocolate coated dark fruits (raising for example). Some burnt woodiness in there too. Pretty dry because of that. Coffee too, and dark (rye) bread. Good bitterness to balance the sweetness.
Very complex. The alcohol is noticable but it is pretty well hidden and adds to the beer.

Great mouthfeel on this one, more like creamy chocolate milk than beer. Rich and creamy.

Overall a really nice, very big imperial stout. Recommended. (973 characters)

A-silky black with less than a fingers worth of dark tan head that leaves a ring around the top

S-You could smell the roast as you were pouring the beer! Dark roasted coffee, roasted malt, dark chocolate, and a bit of smoke.

T-taste is similar to the smell with lots of roasted dark coffee and roasted malt with dark chocolate and light dark fruit and a char finish which at first was a bit off-putting but improved with warmth and time . Alcohol gives a nice warming.

M-full body, low to medium carbonation, a syrupy sweetness finishes with a bit of smoke

Overall a really flavorful, complex Imperial Stout, super expensive, but a nice special treat. (655 characters)

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

Drank on-tap at Tørst, Brooklyn, NY
Served in a wine glass

Dark, shimmery, oily, brown/black appearance. The liquid was topped by a creamy, one-finger crown of mocha colored froth. Streaks of drippy lacing coated the glass.

The nose was rich and robust. Strong roasted and chocolate malt notes. Dark fruits. Good dose of espresso. Some brown sugar sweetness.

The taste was similar to the aroma but more complex and intense. Loads of roasted and caramel malts appeared on the front end. Tons of dark chocolate. Intense dark fruit notes. Raisins and plums came through strongest. Hint of vanilla. Touch of roasty bitterness on the finish. At 12% ABV, the alcohol presence was remarkably well hidden.

While the flavor profile was excellent, the mouthfeel was simply the highlight of this beer. It was thick, rich and oily with a super frothy and smooth cabonation. Plush and pillowy soft.

Take an amazing beer and served it at a beer bar that has the most advanced draft system in the country, and you wind up with pure magic in a glass. What a truly memorable experience. (1,075 characters)

330ml bottle poured into tulip 8/4/13

A shes black alright, even stream pouring out of the bottle's black, the foams about as dark as it gets too, it doesn't last all that long though and leaves no lace but at this strength it looks as expected

S lots of over-ripe bruised plum with some prune, raisin and molasses come out first, I get a little smoke and cold coffee with some faint booze and chocolate syrup

T slightly less dried and over-ripe fruit and slightly more dark roast, more smoke and some char's added to the mix, a little booze but I was expecting much more, a little sweet but everything's working well

M very thick liquid with low carbonation but it works very well, faint heat and a very strong finish of bruised plum, bakers chocolate and just a little licorice

O a little dangerous how easy it is to drink this 12% monster, I don't mind the over-ripe plum notes in big stouts and this one's working well in all areas

I had to buy this one for the name alone, my wife's obsessed with Jesus in a strange way (as a pop culture icon). My home's been filled with Jesus paraphernalia from all over the world and she's pretty fucking far from Christian, this bottles simply "Even More Jesus" for her and she loved it even more then I loved this great beer (1,278 characters)

look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

330ml bottle 12,0% Abv.
Served lightly chilled in an a snifter.
2012 Vintage
No best before date.

Appearance: Surprise surprise, another perfect looking imperial stout from Denmark - the Danish brewing schools must devote an entire subject to the art of brewing fantastic looking imperial stouts!
Even More Jesus pours midnight black, with even the strongest of backlights not able to yield more than a micron of light along the edge of the glass. A rough pour yields a good sized, dark mocha coloured head that lasts well for the abv. and leaves some patchy lacing as it recedes.

Smell: I could smell this one from the second I cracked the cap and man does it smell good! Fantastic dark chocolate aromas combine with heavily roasted malt, some dark roast coffee beans, molasses, liquorice, chocolate fudge, burned raisins and dark candy sugar. Even at room temperature, there is no trace of the 12% noticed in the nose.

Taste: After the nose I was expecting the flavour to be quite sweet, but after a short initial sweetness the flavour is dominated by massive roasted and charred notes and a strong bitterness in the finish.
Flavour notes include: Bitter sweet dark chocolate, molasses, tons of roasted malt, some charred notes, roasted coffee beans, dark candy sugar, dark fruits, distinct bitter hops in the finish and anise.
As with the nose, the alcohol is very well hidden, even at room temperature.

Mouthfeel:The body is just shy of full, but still fairly sticky and there is a medium low level of smooth carbonation.

Overall: Even More Jesus (what a name!) is a fantastic imperial stout, though if I were to nitpick, I think a little less charred bitterness in the flavour would have been a big plus.
That said, I think this will age very well and I look forward to any barrel aged versions that might be released. (1,837 characters)

On-tap at Tørst in NYC, served in a wine glass.

A- Pours black with a thin mocha head, spotty lacing.

S- Moderately sweet aroma of chocolate, dark fruit, molasses and also some bready and roasty malts.

T- Lots of chocolate, dark fruit and molasses. Some roast and smokiness followed by chocolatey and fruity sweetness, finishes with roasty grain and a bit of boozy warmth.

M- Full-bodied, smooth with low-ish carbonation, dry finish, some alcohol warmth but not too much.

O- I really enjoyed this beer and would gladly have it again, very tasty stuff. (557 characters)

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

Beer is pitch black. A vigorous pour results in a moderately sized dark cocoa head. Head fades fairly quickly, leaves some lacing.

Smell is nice and strong. Lots of roasted malt and chocolate. Some vanilla and a bit of anise. Touches of dark fruit.

The nose is a good preview of the taste. Lots of roasted malt and chocolate, with a strong dose of caramel. Booze is noticeable but not in a bad way. Some coffee. Well balanced, some bitter elements but the malt gives a dose of sweetness. Finish is fairly boozy, with a bit of a dark fruit flavour. Powerful beer with a big, bold flavour.

This is one thick beer. Full bodied, low to moderate carbonation. Quite heavy. Right in line with what I look for in an imperial stout.

Overall, really enjoyable. A really good imperial stout. (787 characters)

A really nice beer, and quite a funny name and jab at all us beer geeks. It pours as thick and a viscous as motor oil, and just as black, but with absolutely no head. The nose and taste is tarry and redolent of licorice- the good kind with very little sweetness. The best part if the beer is probably the amazing mouthfeel. Absolutely silky and full, with long flavors that just keep rolling. Very nice. (403 characters)

T - Roasted dark chocolate malts, molasses, black licorice, dark fruits, some light roasted coffee, some tobacco, cocoa, and booze.

M - Full bodied, mild carbonation. Smooth and syrupy with a warming and sweet finish.

D - Very bold and rich, but well balanced. Good Big Imperial Stout. (487 characters)

12 oz. bottle poured into a brandy snifter

Got this beer as a birthday present a few months back, thanks Brett.

A: Pretty awesome. Opaque, like any respectable imperial stout should be, no light around the edges of the glass at all, jet black through and through. Rivals Ten Fidy for one of the darkest heads I've ever seen on a beer. Head dissipates pretty quick, but sticks around as a nice little ring around the edges of the glass.

S: Really sweet up front. Sweet milk chocolate, followed by leather and tobacco. I get some alcohol notes on the back end. Reminds me a lot of Lil' B.

T: The taste kind of follows the nose with the sweetness up front. Seems to be pretty dominated by sweetness, faint notes of roasted malts, and maybe some dark fruits...The finish has a pretty nice warming sensation from that 12%. Leaves a nice dark chocolate tasting bitter aftertaste.

M: Mouthfeel is great. Full bodied, thick, creamy, viscous. Light carbonation, but it really works well here. The beer really coats your mouth, feels like it leaves a film on your tongue.

O: This is only the third Evil Twin beer I've had, Lil'b, and Imperial Biscotti Break being the others. Even More Jesus isn't quite up there with IBB for me, but still a really solid imperial stout. I'd recommend this beer to you if you've got the money to spare and are looking for something new. Keep up the solid work Evil Twin. (1,399 characters)

12oz. bottle into a Cigar City snifter. Shared with schen9303.

Pours pitch black with a dark mocha head that recedes gradually. Spotty and patchy lace with great stick. Small legs though. A solid looking brew.

Notes of chocolate, brownie and sweet soy sauce. Also a creamy hop bitterness sprinkled with roasted malt. Subtle.

One sip and the first thing I notice is that there's a ton going on here. Maybe too much. Notes of fudge, roasted malt, liquorice, prunes, plum, espresso, chocolate, molasses and cocoa. Some sweet soy sauce towards the middle and end too. Finishes sweet cocoa, liquorice, soy sauce and a slight touch of medicine. Decent but the flavors don't mesh too well here.

Medium to full bodied with low carbonation. Oily and thick in the mouth and goes down smooth and warm. Messy finish with a long, lingering aftertaste. Pretty standard for the style.

A well made beer all around but way overpriced. There are imperial stouts out there at a quarter of the price that are twice as good. Worth a try if you don't mind shelling out the dough but overall, not worth it. (1,092 characters)

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. (943 characters)

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. (255 characters)

Bottle poured into a goblet

A - Dark, brown with a small mocha colored head composed of small bubbles of carbonation. Looks like it has a thick and oily body which coats the glass when you swirl the beer around

S - Chocolate, vanilla and caramel are intertwined with coffee and a slight oak. This is a strong and complex nose that brings something different with each sniff

T - Vanilla and caramel sweetness initally. As the beer progresses, there is a bitter coffee and dark chocolate that adds another layer of complexity. The finish has a slight booziness and oak that lingers on the tongue. Really like how it runs the gamet of flavors you'd expect in a good stout and blends them together greatly.

MF - Thick and silky smooth with minimal carbonation. There is a slight astringency and coffee bitterness that lingers on the back end.

O - A great stout from Evil Twin. Love how it brings a wide variety of stout flavors together into one beer and how each sip brings a new aspect (988 characters)

Poured from 11.2 oz bottle into gulden draak tulip at avenue pub, nola. Pours an oily thin tan head. Super viscous and oily. Pretty mild coffe, booze, and chocolate aromas.
Taste is really fantastic. Roasted malt but dark chocolate dominates. Some really nice tobacco and dried fruit notes with a great coffee bitter finish. Super boozeyAj almost cognac like. Its a bit bitter but really nice. Overall an amazing brew and I would highly recommend!! (449 characters)

11.2 ounce bottle. Served in a DFH snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with about an inch brown frothy head. Head retention and lacing are both pretty good. Aroma is nice, it smells like chocolate, roasted malt, dark fruit (cherries, raisins), coffee, dark bread, and some molasses. The brew tastes like milk and bittersweet chocolate, dark fruit, brown sugar, molasses, roasted malt, and coffee. This is a very sweet tasting brew! It's certainly one of the sweeter imperial stouts I've had recently. Mouthfeel/body is full, it's creamy and slick with moderate carbonation. I liked this brew a lot, it's another one that I would definitely buy if I see it again. $9.99 a bottle. (683 characters)

Had Sept. 27
Poured into Chimay Chalice

Thanks to KNS wine out of CA for having a great selection, purchase included 2 bottles of EMJ

A: A dark brown/almost black. Almost zero carbonation, just a small ivory haze forming on top of the pour. A very syrupy texture.

S: Scary. Alcohol first with a bit of coffee and chocolate

T: Now I understand the name. You take a sip and say "Jesus," but then you want even more Jesus. A lot of alcohol burn but a very well blended stout. I'm not a coffee drinker so while there was a bit of coffee on the palate, toasted malt and and chocolate.

M: A beer meant to be aged, I'm sure my opinion-which is very high of the beer-will improve after a few years on the second bottle. Somewhat flat given the minimal carbonation, not the best combo with all the alcohol heat.

O: A very good IS. That adjective will probably change to excellent after some age. (892 characters)

Rich stout, pretty hefty and with a long lingering range.

Presentation: 11.2 oz brown capped bottle. Simple design with a brown background, golden lettering over a radial grey pattern. Side paragraph notes main characteristic, and intent. Shows 12% Alc. by Vol. Served in a snifter.

A - Dense black pour, rich creamy head, medium retention and surface memory with spotty lacing.

S - Roasted nose, coffee, fruity hint...

T - Hefty switch, long orated notes, ash, bitter dash, small caramel with plenty of roasted coffee, bitter chocolate… Fruity companion next to the bitterness, notes of dark fruit are there but under a thick layer of malt...

M - Full body, medium-low carbonation, bitter range, very creamy, long lingering finish with a warming finish.

O - Very nice flow and a sipper of note if one likes a stout like this. Probably a great brew for the cellar.

Notes: Truth of the matter is that Evil Twin is coming up with remarkable brews hitting a notable quality bracket. From the few I´ve tried the malty offerings seems to shine on another level than the hoppy range… Still the pricing, import and all, make these brew a bit prohibitive to revisit often. (1,178 characters)
