A- Pitch black. It slides into the glass like the sneakiest of cat burglars at night. This one is so black it makes dark look light. Half a finger of a caramel color head.

S- Raw coffee, vanilla, and hints of chocolate rolls on a roasted malt backbone.

T- A mix of espresso, chocolate, and smokey, charred notes. The roasted character is quite strong as it borders on astringency. I love the fudge-like start, but the finish is somewhat of a let down.

M- This aspect is so damn impressive. You can cut this baby with a knife. Very little alcohol detected at 12%.

O- Not bad overall. Few stouts are this impressive in the look and feel. The taste isn't bad either.

$9 for 11.2 oz bottle

Poured into a Fremont small snifter. Pours pitch black with a thin brown head with good retention and light lacing. Aroma of toasted dark malt, mocha, mild dark chocolate, vanilla and a bit of coffee. Flavor is dark toasted malt with a hint of sweetness, peaty smoke, dark chocolate, dark dried fruit, finishing malty, slightly smoky with a light hop bitterness. Medium, nicely creamy body, good mouth feel. A very pleasant dark, toasty and mildly smoky imperial stout with great balance and so densely flavorful that the ABV is barely noticeable. Superb. Pricey, but rewarding. Evil Twin sure know how to pick its participating breweries. This Spanish one knows its chops.

Poured out a bottle into my snifter. Grabbed this bad boy at Bobby’s Liquors in San Jose.

A – Black. Black and more black. Very small chocolate brown head appeared and then disappeared all at once.

S – Roasted malts, dark and milk chocolate, coffee, espresso and toffee.

T – Heavy hitting roasted malts with a nice deep chocolate taste. Vanilla, toffee and molasses notes. Great smoky flavor all throughout but not overpowering. If you dig coffee this is your cup with a rich coffee bean flavor. Alcohol makes its presence known at the end but again not overpowering. Finishes off with just a tiny bit of sweetness.

M – Medium to heavy bodied with a nice creamy texture. Low carbonation.

O – This is good..very good. It is exceptionally balanced with all the favor palates shining through. Tastes just wonderful. The ABV is expertly hidden in here making it’s a dangerous brew. You just want more and well if you have too many you will be feeling it for awhile. Wish I would have bought a couple of bottles. Greta stuff.

Drank from an 11.2 fl. oz. bottle purchased at Liquor World, Cambridge, MA
Served in a snifter

Spectacular appearance. The viscous, pitch black, ominous looking liquid was capped by tight, creamy, bubbly, two-finger tall, mocha-colored plume. Amazing for any beer, never mind one that clocks in at 12% ABV. Tons of drippy lacing along the glass. The crown slowly dropped to a thick, bubbly mass of froth.

The aroma was solid. Some smoky, peaty notes were a bit of a surprise initially. Tons of deep, dark, charred malts. Quite ashy. Slight chalky yeast presence. Perhaps I had Scotch on my mind, but I also seemed to pick up some salty notes as well. Good dose of bakers chocolate. This reminded me a bit of burnt brownies. As the beer warmed, the nose turned sweeter. Brown sugar and raisins were noticeable.

Super roasty, charred malts dominated the flavor profile as well. Smoky. Peat smoked malts were apparent. Slightly salty. Hints of day-old espresso in the center. Somewhat woody as well. The finish was bitter and dry with subtle earthy hop notes. Like the nose, the flavor profile turned sweeter with time. Dark fruits were noticeable. Quite raisiny with a touch of brown sugar as well. Although not nearly as smoky or as peaty, I definitely saw similarities between this and Auld Yin, Evil Twin's Scotch barrel-aged imperial stout.

The mouthfeel was moderately thick and slick. Smooth on the palate with an ultra fine and mild carbonation. Almost a touch flat.

Flavor-wise, the most impressive aspect of Aún Más A Jesús was how well well it hid its high ABV. Although I can see many people liking this beer, it was far too ashy and bitter for my palate. Also, at $11 a bottle, there are numerous better options available.
