Bottle from Premier Gourmet. Incredible imperial stout. The aroma is mostly chocolate malty and it is irresistible. Black fudge appearance, with 1/4" retained head. Smooth as silk, long roast chocolate finish. Great drinkability. Alcohol well hidden. Excellent.

A: The beer is absolutely jet black in color and poured like the consistency of motor oil, eventually foaming a bit at the end to produce an eighth of a finger high mocha-colored head. This died down into delicate lacing covering the surface and also left a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: There are light to moderate aromas of dark chocolate malts in the nose along with some notes of coffee beans and hints of roasted malts.
T: The taste is similar to the smell but much more balanced and has a light amount of bitterness. Hints of burnt malts and licorice become evident as the beer warms up. Only slight traces of alcohol are perceptible.
M: It feels a bit shy of full-bodied on the palate and coats your mouth a bit; a low to moderate amount of carbonation is present. There are some slight hints of warming from the alcohol and dryness towards the finish.
O: This beer has a great balance between the malts and hops and hides its alcohol especially well considering the strength. It's quite bitter for such a strong stout, which negates any stickiness. As such, it is a very drinkable imperial stout.

As some folks believe that Jesus is black. If so, the fine folks over at Evil Twin show that black Jesus may not be enough- for those occasions, they bring us Aun Mas Jesus!

The limited Christmas time release pours with lighter carbonation than usual and causes an inky black appearance. A light swirl leaves tawny bronze legging on the glass, looking much like brandy. Casual bubbles climb to the rim of the snifter and form an espresso-like creme. Dainty in its foam stance, yet masculine in color and texture- its obvious that this is no ordinary stout.

A culmination of roast, sweet, and booze rise to the nose with a strong, succulent, and complex scent. Rich espresso is again reaffirmed, but unexpected elements of sherry, port, and merlot add a vinous and fruity set of aromas to the roast. Complementary notes of chocolate, walnut, and light smoke keep the waves of aromas coming.

The first sip of the stout curls onto the tongue and saturates the taste buds with savory sweetness of port wine, bittersweet chocolate, and seared toffee. Its lush taste is aided by vinous esters of red grape, dry sherry, and tannin-rich oak. Cherries, raisins, and plumb layer onto the roasty and winy taste and ensures new flavors with each sip. A forgiving finish of burnt embers bring on notions of smoke and wood extend deeply in the gullet and melds right into the next savory sip.

With its low carbonated creaminess, the beer seeps into the mouth, again like port wine and satisfies the need for both sweet and savory textures. Its oily coat clings to the mouth and draws out into a long bittersweet finish. Brandy-like alcohols ensure a spicy-warm aftertaste with mild wood bitterness.

"Even More Jesus" is a highly satisfying stout that's not for the faint of heart. It's an extremely complex ale but not complicated. It's both aggressive and forgiving, robust and soft, spicy and silky- it's everything you want in a beer named for Jesus, and maybe even more!

A - Pours with one finger of deep, dark, orange-brown foam on top of a completely opaque, black body. The head settles very slowly and leaves nice lace on the glass.

S - Dark, sweet malt with notes of chocolate, espresso, and vanilla.

T - Thick, oily chocolate up front with notes of fudge and espresso. Some charred caramel and licorice in the middle, which leads into a finish of dark fruit, old leather, and smoky, spicy dark chocolate.

M - A thick, oily body, moderately low carbonation, and a surprisingly well balanced finish.

D - Very complex and flavorful, but also unusually balanced and drinkable for a beer of this strength. The rich, intense dark chocolate takes the lead but it is supported nicely by a range of sugar, spice, fruit, and even some woody notes. This is absolutely worth the price if you can find it.

Poured from the bottle into a goblet.

The beer pours a black color with a half finger of thick tan head. The head sticks around quite nicely while you drink this one. The smell is full of intense roasted malt with a dark fruit note underneath. There are some hops in the nose, but the roast definitely dominates. The intense roast carries over to the taste, which seems to be normal for Evil Twin stouts. The hops combine with the roast to create an intense bitterness. The chili heat shows up in the back end of the sip. The body is on the thick side with smooth, tingly carbonation. I liked this more than I remember liking the base beer. The peppers made this one more interesting. I'd have more if the situation arose.

Bottle from Binny's - Lincoln Park. Served in a Russian River tulip.

A - Dark reddish-mocha foam settles to a thin collar, leaving a few wisps on top and a few specks of lace. Pitch black body.

S - Fudge, dark chocolate, light soy and umami, vanilla, roasted nuts, and mild smoke and charred malt flavors. Quite sweet, but with sufficient roast to keep things form getting cloying.

T - The taste verges a bit more to the char and espresso side of things, with more smoke, roast, and dark chocolate. Again, there's a mild umami note, as well as hints of anise and fudge. Alcohol is pretty well hidden, but I could have stood for a bit more of the chocolate cake sweetness found in the aroma.

M - Full-bodied and viscous. Pleasant medium-low carbonation, melted chocolate texture but not overly sticky. Slightly dry and burnt in the finish, with a smokey residual feel.

D - I liked this about as much as I liked Even More Jesus; in fact I came up with the exact same score without even looking back at my older review for that beer. It's a well-made Imperial Stout but not quite worth the premium pricing. I'd drink it again if I had more disposable income or if someone offered though.

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

Just such a rich smooth smoky smell and flavor. Complex but never offputting.

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.

A: Pours an opaque jet black in color with some very dark brown at the edges when held up to the light and slightly thick looking (like oil). The beer has an eight of a finger tall very dark mocha head that quickly fades to a small patch of extremely thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of dark roasted malts, chocolate malts, and coffee.

T: Moderate to strong flavors of dark roasted malts with some notes of chocolate and coffee. There are some lighter notes of burnt malts and licorice. Some light flavors of alcohol. Light to moderate amounts of bitterness that lingers briefly.

M: Just shy of full bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly creamy and coats your mouth with some light alcohol heat and dryness in the finish.

O: This is a very enjoyable really big stout which is something I very much enjoy - there are wonderful flavors and aromas with good complexity. Also, this beer is a righteous looking stout - dark and thick. The flavors are well balanced and it goes down rather easily for as big as it is...

11.2 oz bottle shared by Chris. Thanks.

Pours a dark black with a dark mocha head. Smokey, peaty aroma of ash, dark chocolate, roast, and char. Flavor starts with a mild chocolate and roast malt presence before descending into the depths of char and smoke, burnt coffee and powder. Viscous, thick body with soft carbonation. Not a bad beer, but not for me.

Pours viscous, pitch black and opaque with a one finger beige head that quickly settles into a thin, lasting ring.  Spotty lace left behind.  

Sweet boozy aroma with a decent amount of floral hops, burnt sugars and roasted dark malt.  Subtle earthy pine needle followed by sweet, fudge-y dessert-like chocolate notes and deep roast.  Chocolate, coffee bean,  caramel, toffee and alcohol sweetness along with burnt toast, oatmeal and smoke.

Viscous and full bodied with a really nice balance of earthy hops, boozy sweetness, sweet chocolate and dark roasted malt.  Earthy, resinous and piney hops provid a nice bitterness that compliments that roast and counters the dessert like sweetness.  Grassy pine needle bitterness up front, but not too much, followed by boozy heat, chocolate, caramel and toffee.  This is coutered by smoke and a robust roasted coffee bean presence along with some dark chocolate, oatmeal, burnt sugars and toast.  Plenty of alcohol sweetness but the high ABV is excellently masked.  Never would have guessed 12%.  Really complex and definitely a sipper but it's deceptively drinkable.

A very nice beer. I don't think I like it as much as the cafe version, but that's just personal preference. This one pours just as viscous and inky black, with no head. The smell is all licorice, but the taste adds massive bitter chocolate and roasted notes. Silky in the mouth, but with a very long finish. Quite dry, very little sweetness here at all. A fine imperial stout indeed.

Bottle split with my wife tonight. Served alongside the coffee version.

The beer is near black. Opaque and viscous. Small, oily beige head in a filmy layer rests atop the beer. The aroma is huge. Didn't even need to get my nose near the glass. Chocolate and dark roast initially, followed by vanilla and a touch of alcohol. What little alcohol there was in the nose is virtually nonexistent in the flavor. Masterfully hidden. Big and bold stout. Rich and robust. A slow sipper one could easily drink too quickly. A beer I would thoroughly enjoy having again and one I'll be looking for in the future.

Poured from an 11.2 oz bottle into my Devil's Backbone glass. Pretty close to black in color with a thin tan film barely covering the top. Decent lacing as I drank it.

Aroma has a nice mix of milk chocolate and roasted malts. Little bit of dark frit to it as well as a bit of a leathery presence. Pretty smooth and flavorful aroma overall and pretty nice for the style.

The taste shows more of the milk chocolate flavor up front while the finish has more of the roasted malts and smoky flavors coming out. The finish is dry with some resiny hop bitterness to it. There is some dark fruits to it as well. It comes together pretty nicely.

The mouthfeel is on the heavier side with low carbonation. Overall, it was a pretty solid beer of the style all around. The flavors all came together pretty well. It was bold, flavorful and a pretty nice beer to sip on this evening.
