330ml bottle. 'He doesn't look a thing like Jesus', especially sporting that port barrel there. Another coup by the Alberta import agent here, it would seem.

This beer pours a solid, light-destroying black hole, full-stop, with a skimpy thin cap of equally fizzy and creamy dark beige head, which wisps away, to its credit, in slightly more than a mere moment, leaving a bit of big buck antler lace in spots around the glass as things duly drop away.

It smells of bittersweet chocolate, treacle, well-roasted coffee beans, fleshy black fruit - cherry, plum, and fig - woody and musty red wine, a further earthy dustiness, and subtle booze twinges. The taste is more concentrated cocoa nibs, dark baking sugar, molasses, licorice, bitter espresso, dark, gritty fruit, pleasantly softened caramel, vanilla, and hot red wine barrel notes, all well integrated and making nice with each other.

The bubbles are quite understated, and even AWOL at times, the body a sticky medium-heavy weight, surprisingly smooth, and creamy by the same metric. It finishes on the sweet side, the big chocolate malt, dark sugar, licorice, and extracted barrel notes seeing little counterpoint, only in the bristling alcohol.

Like the label marketing babble essentially says, take a great thing, mess with it, and hopefully make it even better (I'm not going for their 'godlier' angle). Well, at least they haven't screwed up an already heady and deadly tasty beer, they've only added a bit of red wine barrel essence, which actually dials things back a tad, to a degree not noticeable unless you are inclined to put the two offerings side by side. And then, mi amigo, even El Jebus can't help you.
