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.

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.

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

330ml bottle 12,0% Abv.
Served lightly chilled in an a snifter.
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.

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.
