330 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Inky black. Not much head. Thin mocha collar. Glass staining. Great body.

Smell - Molasses and bucket of black patent malt. Definite alcohol presence. Slightly fruity.

Taste - Sweet and boozy up front. Less roast. More caramel. Sharp alcohol bite in the finish. Some chocolate and alcohol blended together in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Boozy. Medium bodied. Slightly acidic.

Overall - I remember enjoying Even More Jesus a lot more than this. Missing some of the roast I remember.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a Cigar City snifter at Tryst in Delray Beach, FL.

A- Pours a totally opaque black color with pretty much no head, just some light brown bubbles and a thin ring around the edge of the glass. Tiny specs of lacing stick to the glass.

S- Just all dark roast and some booze. There's also a faint hoppiness detected with some short, sharp sniffs.

T- Incredibly smooth considering the ABV with notes of milk chocolate, vanilla and molasses. Some char comes through as the beer warms. Definitely a sipper but it could be drunk quickly if one has a palate for high gravity stouts. The hops also start to show up as the temp rises.

M- Unexpectedly thin with low carbonation and a hefty body.

O- Very straightforward and certainly worth the $17 for an 11.2 oz bottle. Evil Twin's beers may be pricey, but damn are they great.

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

I allowed this beer 1/2 an hour warming from fridge temp.
The beer pours a motor oil black with a thin blanketing of dark tan head that fades into a thin halo with modest lacing. The nose is very potent and distinct of slightly roasty malts, ethanol, coffee, and bitter chocolate. Seriously, it has a very pungent nose. The taste is relatively malty and sweet upfront with a pleasantly roasty, boozy afterburn. Honestly, I can't say I've had many imperial stouts quite like this beer. The mouthfeel is thick and malty, sweet, with a slight bitter chocolate roastiness in the finish. Pungent, interesting flavors and a big ethanol burn make this an evening sipper. I'm glad to try this beer and think it provides a relatively distinct alternative to most american made imperial stouts...although at a price.

11.2 oz bottle at about fridge temp poured into a snifter.

Pours out an oily thick midnight black color with a thin dark mocha colored head. The head doesn't really last, only keeping a thin ring around the edge, but some thick dark brown legs are left all over the sides of the glass after a swirl. Keywords: black, oily, thick.

Deeply charred, bitter roast, bitter dark dark chocolate, some warm booziness, almost port or bourbon like in a way, that seems to blend in so nicely, really compliments the beer, hints of chocolate cake and as it warms hints of dark fruits.

A really nice tasting impy stout. Burnt bitter roasted malt, bitter dark chocolate, sweet burnt sugar, dark caramel, chocolate brownies. nuances of tobacco, dark fruits. A bit of a warming effect that works well with the beer, but in no way is it overly boozey. Finishes with a really nice deep bitter dark chocolate flavor that really lingers and almost tastes like German chocolate cake at times. As it warms the chocolate flavors are just amazing. What a complex stout!

Amazing mouthfeel. Thick, sweet, oily, viscous, smooth and velvety. A lower carbonation which obviously works well.

Maybe one of the best non barrel aged stouts I've had, so I can only imagine how heavenly this would be in a barrel. It's hard to pick a better one between this and imp. biscotti break, I would almost say this is better, because although I love the coffee in biscotti, I'm not a huge fan of the toasted malt notes, where this is straight deep dark burnt roasted malt. Buy this if you can, well worth the cash.

Sometimes I enjoy matching the abv of my beer to the time of the day and I can't think of anything that's better than an Imperial Stout on a spring Saturday afternoon.

Also, another RSVP in Portland, ME special, $8, rather than the $12 I've seen in some reviews.

A-Absolutely Sludgey motor oil. Plops in the glass with an intimidating viscosity. Alas though, this beer could not complete the near impossible and actually have a full head rest on the crazy thick body. whisker thin mocha? head, its so thin the color is hard to pinpoint.

S- Roasted Malts and molasses, plum raisin background, some cold coffee way in the back.

T- Molasses hit first here followed by a rush of roasted malt that seems to slam the brakes right on black patent before heading into some of the coffee you could just barely get in the nose. That sudden jolt of harsher roasted malt though is your only warning this is a big boy beer. Though sweet, there is hardly any burn or notice of a 12% brew. Honestly reminds me of vintage DFH WWS, but not nearly as sweet.

M- Did I mention this was thick? the appearance of the pour lived up to the hype, huge chewy mouthfeel.

O-This was damn good. I honestly wouldn't have been disappointed had I paid $12 either, at that price though I am not a repeat buyer. If I see at 8 again, yeah I'll buy one for the cellar. For my personal taste though, I prefer a little less black patent like roastiness, but I'm sure some of that could disappear with age. Good bier!

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

A- Pours a viscous black into the glass and a small head forms. Head doesn't stay around too long and no lacing is left. Body is lively and leaves thick brown spots on the glass when swirled around.

S- Big roasted malt, chocolate, vanilla and smoke round out the nose.

T- Smoke upfront that's followed by bitter chocolate and an earthy bitterness. Nice char and roast in the middle that leads to woody finish. Flavor is really nice and has lots going on

M- Thick and viscous with lower carbonation and feels right on the money for the style. Perfect cold weather sipper feel. Slick, oily finish

O- Really nice stout. Feel is incredible and taste has lots going on. I wish i had got another bottle to see how time treats it.

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

I had this at the opening of Torst in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.

It pours in a pitch black color with a thin head with some lacing. The aroma is amazing, big bitter chocolate, slight coffee, just amazing and inviting.

The taste is gorgeous. It has a smooth bitter chocolate flavor with some coffee. The sweet and bitterness is balanced. It almost has a vanilla creaminess to it from the carbonation.

The mouthfeel is perfect. Big and around, but then it just finishes off so perfectly. I want to emphasized how good it is. It just cuts off the tongue after a smooth easy finish and you want to have more. That is dangerous for 12% ABV!

With some chocolate flavor or heavy stouts out there you get an aftertaste and the throat and mouth just close up to drinking more, this has none of that. There’s no sheen or finish on the tongue.

The comparison I can make is Alesmith Speedway Stout and maybe Brooklyn Chocolate Stout. However, unlike Speedway, it lacks a booziness. It just is smooth all around.

Balance, drinkability, mouthfeel, this beer just does it. The best Imperial Stout I have had next to Bourbon County Brand Stout.

4.93/5  rDev +15.2%
look: 5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 5

Appearance – Pitch black with a dark chocolaty foamy head. The head dissipates quickly to a thin layer that leaves a nice lacing on the glass.

Smell – A strong scent of coffee, chocolate, molasses, brownie, and heavy malt. Excellent.

Taste – Chocolate, coffee, molasses, and lots of malt. This is a strong tasting, very delicious stout. Awesome!

Mouthfeel – Creamy, somewhat syrupy, lightly carbonated, boozy, but smooth.

Drinkability – This is similar to Even More Jesus, except this is maltier, while the Even More Jesus has a sweet liquor type flavor (anise?) which is also very good. Both are excellent, but to me this is more of a “classic” stout. As of this review, this is my all time favorite beer!

A - 4.0 - Black, with a small, dark, fizzy head that dissipates quickly.

S - 4.25 - Very nice. Kind of a smoky note with sweet chocolate

T - 4.25 - Very dry dark chocolate note, almost to a powdery degree. Substantial black malt char to give it backbone and bitterness, yet still nicely balanced against the chocolate. The smoky note almost reminds me of the smell of the initial fire of a smoke bomb from childhood, except an appetizing version of that. That's a little strange. Mild warm booze fumes waft up the throat after swallowing.

M - 4.25 - Somewhat heavy body, viscous.

O - 4.25 - Very enjoyable. Robust flavors, rich texture, mature composition. Very pricey even for a single 12-oz, but otherwise a real winner.

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.

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.

Reviewing the Aún Más A Jesús from Evil Twin Brewing out of Denmark. Major thanks to Edgar Chavez for sending me this bottle as part of his amazing Christmas/Channukah BIF box!
Score: 93

2011 vintage bottle served in a Surly Darkness snifter and enjoyed on 01/13/13.

Appearance: Pours a jet black color with a thin layer of tan head that settles to a pencil thin ring around the glass. Some oily lacing oozes along the side, but no lacing/retention otherwise. 3.75/5

Smell: Dark chocolate, mildly "burnt" roast, non-fresh (but not "stale") hops, buttery almonds, caramelized brown sugar, oak and a light amount of something vaguely anise-like and cherry-esque that reminds me of Cuvee Delphine. Hint of soy sauce and coffee too. The aroma is big and bold; you can whiff it a foot or two away from the glass. 4/5

Taste: The first thing that strikes me about this beer is that it finishes with an intense dose of immensely dark chocolate that tastes like this chocolate bar. Upfront is dark fruit, cherry, caramelized brown sugar, burnt roast and very faint coffee. The "upfront" flavor reminds me a lot of Marshall Zhukov and Black Albert. In comparison to the nose, there is not much hops and the anise is barley detectable unless you are searching for it. Some five seconds after these flavors hit your tongue, the dark chocolate/cacao flavor washes them away and supplants them entirely with a big, thick, bold, dry and delicious pure chocolate finish. As the beer warms up, a little bitter coffee flavor sneaks into the finish and a little more of the roast and anise come through on the palate. This beer is pretty complex, and I like the way the flavors from the finish and the "upfront impression" complement each other in a non-blended way that makes this beer seem like I am drinking two separate stouts. 4.5/5

Mouthfeel: Full bodied, minimal carbonation. Slightly sweet with a modestly bitter, dry finish. 4.5/5

Overall: An excellently crafted, gypsy-made imperial stout that far surpasses everything that Mikkeller, Evin Twin's (evil) twin brother, has put out to date. Prost!

Recommendation: The beer is quite pricey, but arguably delivers. This is not a beer that I would hoard at its price point, but it's one I would recommend nonetheless trying (and maybe sharing with a friend).

Pairings: A peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

Cost: $12 for a 12 oz bottle.

Poured from a bottle into a Founders snifter. The pour is extremely dark and viscous with no light getting through. The head is medium tan, big, rocky, majestic and has pretty good staying power. On the nose I smell lots of chocolate sweetness, an oaky,earthy, musty woodiness, some nice toasted malt aroma, and a slightly bitter burnt fruit note like a good Russian Imperial Stout. So far, I'm all in!

Very full-bodied, delicious stout! First of all, the feel is to die for. This thing is thick and creamy and just heaven on the palate. The flavors are really intense and satisfying. Sweet, chocolatey toasted malt, nice vanilla-laced dark fruit, a bit of espresso, rum-soaked black forest cake, creme de cacao. The flavors are wonderful. The booze is definitely present and this beer brings some heat in the back of the throat as you swallow. A definite sipper.

I haven't been this impressed with a stout since I had Founders Imperial Stout for the first time. This stuff is terrific! If you don't like boozy stouts, then proceed with caution. But if booze + sweet = elegant dessert on your palate OR if you like big, malty, bittersweet Russian Imperial Stouts, you have GOT to try this.

Pours wall to wall black. This is a very dark beer. It really only shows brown when there's just a sip or two left in the glass. Small brown head. Looks big, though TBFA Blackout Porter looked a bit more syrupy.

Aroma is dark chocolate, herbal hops, roast, coffee, dark stone fruit, caramel, molasses, caramel. Lots of roasted malt in there. Some booze shows up, but it has its place and fits well. A tiny bit of acetone or something in there - just an odd harsh note.

The taste is excellent. This beer is a mouthful of dark chocolate and roasted coffee. It makes me think of super rich, very dark chocolate fudge. Interesting umami-ish note to the beer from all of that roasted malt. A touch of leather and anise. Fairly sweet, but there's a good dose of bitterness from the roast and some more herbal hoppiness. Evil Twin really nailed the classic imperial stout flavors with this one.

Mouthfeel is thick and full. Coats the mouth with roasted malt flavor. Some booze but less than expected. Probably could be a tad thicker, but I'm kinda splitting hairs.

A delicious imperial stout. It's very well-made and ticks all of the right notes for the style. Despite all of that, I sorta preferred the Blackout Porter. This beer is much more of a classic imperial stout, whereas Blackout felt like a unique spin on the style. Both are excellent beers, and Evil Twin deserves a ton of credit for putting out a string of great big stouts/porters (not to mention his other beers).

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.

11.2oz bottle poured into Lawson's snifter. I believe this is the same beer as Even more Jesus, except brewed at Companyia Cervesera del Montseny in Catalunya, Spain (hence it written in Spanish).

*400th Review!

A- Pours a very dark jet black with a very thin dark mocha head that recedes fairly fast, leaves some thin layered lacing. Fairly minimal carbonation, but small consistent rising bubbles.

S- Decently strong and fairly complex aromas of dark fudge, chocolate, figs, a hint of dates, and a bit of espresso. Nice aroma, with the fudge definitely coming out the most.

T- Fudge, espresso (a little bit more then the nose), a hint of figs, a bit of dark chocolate, finishes with dark fudge and a bit of cocoa. Nice sweet lingering aftertaste.

M- Thick, velvety, decent carbonation, finishes with a nice smoothness.

O- This was a nice imperial stout that was definitely easy drinking, flavorful, and nicely complex. I enjoyed drinking this and would definitely recommend it.

Served from bottle into a Mikkeller Teku (semi-proper!). Poured pitch black with a half finger brown head that subsided to a minimal amount very quickly. Maintained phenomenal lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, roasted malt, caramel, wood, dark chocolate, sweet alcohol, and dark fruit. The flavor was of sweet malt, bread, roasted malt, caramel, sweet alcohol, dark fruit, dark chocolate, and earth. It had a heavy feel on the palate with medium carbonation. Overall this was a pretty good brew. There was quite a bit going on in this one as far as robustness and complexity. I have had the other version of this in the past and this one compares pretty well. This one actually might be a little more robust on the dark chocolate aspect. While this is definitely a heavy hitter on the ABV aspect the other flavors going on here definitely do a good job of masking some of it, but doesn’t completely. A really well done brew that I’m glad I got the chance to try.

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.

11.2oz bottle into a snifter

A: Pours absolutely pitch black with two fingers of medium brown, dense foam.

S: Dark, burnt malts dominate. I get tobacco, dark chocolate, burnt sugar, toffee, and prunes. This is a kitchen sink stout, but in a good way. I can only imagine how many specialty malts are in this one. As the beer warms, I get significant roast.

T: Dark chocolate and hop bitterness is supported by burnt sugars, toffee, and prunes. Balance between sweet and bitter is nearly perfect, this beer has many flavors on both sides that contribute to its complexity. Like the aroma, I get some roast as the beer warms, particularly in the aftertaste. Booze is evident, but it certainly doesn't seem 12%.

M: Medium to thick mouthfeel with appropriate carbonation.

O: This beer is extremely complex and extremely tasty. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I just wish it wasn't so expensive.

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!
