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.

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

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!!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Poured into a Maudite snifter. Pours pitch black. Thin film of brown foam dissipating to a ring around the glass. Rich aroma of toasted malt, chocolate, vanilla, booze. Flavor is intense toasted malt, chocolate, dried dark fruit, coffee and a hint of smoke. Finishes with burnt coffee and chocolate. Rich and delicious. Heavy bodied with excellet creaminess. This is an excellent imperial stout. Glad I got the opportunity to try it.
