4.88/5  rDev +13.5%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Appearance – Pitch black with a dark chocolaty creamy head. The head sticks around longer than the other Evil Twin Jesus beers I’ve tried. Leaves lots of nice lacing on the glass.

Smell – A strong coffee scent, roasted malts, chocolate cake, and a touch of vanilla.

Taste – Coffee, roasted malt, and dark chocolate. This has a nice strong taste which I really like.

Mouthfeel – Very creamy, somewhat syrupy, lightly carbonated, and lightly boozy. Perfect feel for the style.

Drinkability – This is somewhat similar to my all time favorite beer (Aun Mas A Jesus), with coffee, and without molasses. Another absolutely OUTSTANDING stout from Evil Twin!

look: 5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 5

A - Pitch black with milk chocolate colored head. Can't think of a way that it could look any better.

S - Expecting a bit more coffee aroma. Chocolate, dark fruits, coffee, and a hint of alcohol.

T - Coffee is significantly more present in the taste than the aroma. Coffee mixes nicely with the dark roasted malt flavors. For 12% there is hardly a hint of alcohol burn.

M - Rich, smooth, full bodied. Really quite excellent. Its a great desert beer

O - A massive coffee stout. Expensive (8.99 for 11.2oz) but definitely worth it.

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

The beer comes black with a chocolately brown fluffy head.

The aroma is of sweet chocolate, creaminess, roasted malt.

The flavor explodes on you with espresso, smoke, chocolate. The chocolate is bittersweet, almost like baker's chocolate. There's tons of roasted coffee. And then just a deep deep roasted malt flavor.

The beer has a beautifully luscious body that is the highlight of the beer. The incredible thing about this beer is how dense the flavors are, yet the beer just lifts off the tongue so gently that you just want to keep sipping more. There is a slight booziness to clean up the beer.

This beer hides 12% ABV like few other beers that I've had at hiding alcohol. It is dangerously easy to drink and just delicious as a roasty chocolate espresso milkshake. The coffee is a wonderful roasty addition to the already fantastic base beer.

A: Deep dark brown under a 2” dark tan to brown finely bubbled foam collar that clings to the glass providing thick cluimps of lace.
S: coffee, dark chocolate, dark malt
T: Big creamy start – a hint of malt and then a big coffee rush – it alternates briefly between espresso and mocha with some higher alcohols and some esters sitting between the coffee and the chocolate action. Suggestions of dark cherries.
F: Big and chewy with very fine and soft carbonation and soft warming on the finish.
O: The coffee and the chocolate are very well balanced and the rich texture makes this very easy to drink.

Purchased September 25, 2015 and enjoyed September 30, 2015 in a MadTree tulip/snifter.

Look - Looks as great as Aun Mas Chili. Slow one finger of head develops and dissipates to a ring. Tan head. Thick. Dark brown.

Smell - Sweet chocolate. Tootsie roll. Coffee. I wish I had a better way to explain the burnt chocolate.

Taste - For a coffee stout, tops. Sweet chocolate but dark chocolate at the same time. Charred barley. Most importantly very strong coffee.

Feel - Thick and goes down smooth. Not chewy but creamy. Carbonation tingles on tongue, Not sure what else you want.

Overall - I compare this too Aun Mas Chili because Chili is my highest rated beer on here. Cafe is close. I would still rather have Chili but Cafe is great for a coffee stout.

a pitch black thick pour with a finger of dark brown head, great retention/slow dissipation. dark black coffee aroma up front, dark chocolate, licorice, smokey/chipotle, tobbacco. the flavor, although robust and dark - is actually very well balanced with sweetness.. tons of smokey ashtray, coffee, dark roasted grains up front with a delicious dark/sweet chocolatey overall flavor, molasses, rich flavorful roast. this is a fantastically delicious beer.
this is a full bodied as i've ever had a stout. thick, creamy, delicious nectar of the dark lords covers the back of your mouth like cough syrup.. with a slight bubbly fizz (and an amazing flavor) that reminds you that this is indeed beer.

i don't think i've given a single beer multiple 5's as a rating.. but this one has 3. really, the smell is excellent, but everything about this beer is just way more than i could ever expect. well worth every single penny spent.

Poured from an 11.2oz bottle into a Jester King stemmed glass.

A: Deep dark brown mostly black pour. Gentle pour leads to a big 3 finger khaki colored head that fades slowly leaving nice lacing.

S: Big roasted malts, dark chocolate fudge and some fresh roasted coffee beans.

T: Jesus this one is a big smooth creamy chocolatey brew filled with coffee, vanilla bean and tons of roasted barley.

M: Creamy, smooth, perfectly carbonated. No bite not bitter and the abv is completely hidden. Dangerous.

O: It's a good thing this one is expensive because if you're looking for a quick buzz with a shit ton of flavor, this is your beer. It's ANOTHER homerun for danish stouts.

Single 12 oz bottle purchased from Nathaniel Square Corner Store in Rochester, NY. 8.49 for the bottle. At that price, hope it's good!

Pours like motor oil from the bottle to my tulip. Very sticky, goopy, and awesome. Nice head that's almost as dark as the beer itself. Dark brown rings of lace go down the sides of this beer as I drink.

Smells like wonderful coffee, of the espresso bent. Bit of chocolate and roastiness too.

The taste follows- bitter coffee beans, coffee soaked brownies, cocoa powder, alcohol twang, oak, vanilla, slight tobacco and leather, roasty bitterness, sweet finish. A lot of great flavors smash you over the head in this one. Insane!

A comparable mouthfeel to the Bourbon County line. Sticky, viscous, and full. Awesome!

Worth the price. I always pick it up when I see it.

Poured into a tulip glass nice milk chocolate colored thick head... Pitch black and thick this looks great... smell is of coffee and chocolate slightly sweet. Coffee is present nice not overpowering, slight sugary note on the back of the tongue like a semi sweet chocolate almost. Goes down smooth is this seriously 12% not boozy at all evil twin has outdone themselves here. Well above the normal price point that I usually shoot for but I'm not mad at it. Would share some more with friends.

Whoops, this bottle got lost in the back of the fridge, not a problem for a robust stout, but hope it still has its coffee character. Poured into a Reuben's Brew small snifter. Pours pitch black appearing opaque in the glass with a thin, persistant light brown head with nice lacing. Aroma of dark toaste malt, chocolate and quality coffee, hints of black pepper, grassy hops. Man, this is flavorful. Rich chocolate, sweet toasted malt with light char, latte coffee, hints of dark dried fruit; finishes like a coffee liqueur chocolate with light hop bitterness. Medium bodied with light creaminess. I recall really liking all the variants of this series, but this really is remarkably flavorful. I don't know if I lost anything keeping it this long, but this is so good that it hardly matters. The coffee element is well integrated, but distinctive. Just delicious, a beer I could drink the rest of my life, happily.

11.2oz bottle into a snifter...

A: syrupy pour; black; one-finger, mocha head of foam; slight ring of retention leaves a few thin strands of lace.

S: dark chocolate; fudge; rich and darkly malty; not as much coffee as expected, but the aroma is still excellent.

T: follow aroma; dark chocolate and brownie batter; coffee on the end; delicious.

M: full bodied; moderate carbonation; chewy texture; velvety; pretty close to perfect.

O: a delicious beer; wonder how it stacks up against the non-coffee version? Will be trying that one soon; hard to believe this beer is at 12%abv.

A this is how a coffee stout should be. The balance of the coffee and stout is about perfect. The differences maker and what makes this beer speci
Is the quality of the base stout. Very thick stout with rich malts providing a base that can withstand the coffee. The beer does not dissPear behind the coffee. Looks great with a caramel head, mouthfeel is about perfect, and all the flavors compliment each other for a great tasting stout.

A: motor oil-looking liquid in a large snifter; center-pour released a dense finger of mocha-colored foam. Collar and some stray surface foam left spare motes behind. The inside of the glass had an almost oily sheen.

S: roasted coffee, dark and sweet; dark roasty cocoa-ish malts; something herbal/medicinal and earthy, too

T: this is a smash-in-the-mouth beer - sweet malts forward, just drenching the palate with boozy, lush flavors of dark semi-sweet espresso, and wet, bitter, dark chocolate - there was a woodsy-ness to it that reminded me of the flavor an oak barrel might impart - probably just the alcohol asserting itself, but it made for a very dry, roasty clean-finishing taste

M: viscous, dense, full-bodied, some astringence up-front dries out on the finish; slightest chalky aftercoat like wet unsweetened cocoa powder

O: super brew. One-time release? This is one people are gonna wanna get their hands-on. It's a classy coffee stout with really bold flavors and great feel.

Poured from a bottle into a Lost Abbey Teku. The pour is gorgeous. It's jet black and bars the faintest trace of light from escaping. The head is massive, tan, and lasts quite long for such a high ABV beer. The nose carries both the burnt, roasted char notes of a Russian Imperial Stout and the coffee notes promised by the brewer, though they are not as intense as I anticipated (or hoped for). There's also a very faint trace of booziness on the nose as well, but it doesn't detract at all.

Wowee!!! Full body, fantastic flavor, and a wonderfully creamy, silky feel. The bitter and sweet flavors collide in your mouth right from the get-go. There's none of that ``well it's sweet up front and bitter in back'' nonsense. These flavors don't file in an orderly fashion. It's all about the contrast of big roasty notes going toe-to-toe with achingly bitter roasted malt and coffee. The coffee flavors are really good in this beer too (though not quite as good as in KBS). They tend toward the rich, high quality, chocolatey coffee flavors instead of the bitter, grassy ``cold coffee'' flavors. Nice dry finish and extremely drinkable for such high ABV. I don't get much booziness at all, just the slightest trace of warmth in the back of the mouth.

This might be the best coffee stout I've had not named KBS. The balance between sweet malt and bitter roast is outstanding, and the coffee flavor is superb. My only complaints are the price (though it's still worth it) and that I'd like to have even more of that rich coffee flavor (yes, I'm crazy). This is an awesome beer.

Drank from an 11.2 fl. oz. bottle purchased at Harvest Wines & Spirits, West Hartford, CT
Served in a snifter

Outstanding appearance. The beer poured an oily and viscous, absolute pitch black and was topped by an inch-tall crop of super creamy and dense, saddle brown foam. Amazing lasting strength on the head, which slowly faded to a thick, bubbly ring. Huge, drippy patches of lacing coated the glass and stuck around far longer than I anticipated.

The aroma was rich and robust. Semi-sweet with strong notes of mocha, brown sugar and vanilla. Not a lot of coffee per se, but definitely smoother and more interesting overall than the regular Aún Más Jesús. Fudge-like notes were also apparent. As the beer warmed, dark fruits (plums and raisins) were noticeable.

Lots of roastiness came through in the flavor profile initially. Roasted malts and sweet brown sugar notes balanced each other on the front end. Smoky with hints of molasses. Good amount of fresh vanilla bean as well. Touch of cold coffee in the center. The finish was roasty and slightly ashy, with a slight boozy sting. For a 12% ABV beer, however, the alcohol was well buried. Some earthy hops were detectible. Bitter notes lingered on my palate after each sip.

The mouthfeel was nearly flawless. Amazingly creamy and dense with a super fine, silky, tongue-blanketing effervescence. Velvety smooth.

I found the regular Aún Más Jesús to be overly roasty and bitter, but the addition of "café" seemed to mellow out some of that beer's rougher edges. Being a huge coffee fan, however, I really wished there was a whole lot more of it in this beer.

A: Absolutely no head at all no carbonation sound when bottle was opened completely pitch black

S: Deep dark chocolate with roasted coffee lots of burnt malts

T: nice rich coffee with big roasted malts and bittersweet chocolate some licorice

M: creamy thick very cloying in a good way makes the beer feel more decadent

O: Very nice beer odd that there is no carbonation. Great rich roasty coffee and chocolate with a nice thick mouthfeel pretty much everything you want in a stout displayed nicely here. Only wish the carbonation was a tad higher.

I picked this up at State Line Liquors shared with tenderbranson69 in a couple of teku glasses.
my 2,000th review on Beer Advocate

The color is black with thick tan cap with tiny bead and spotty lace collects on the glass. The smell is incredible rich with woody and coffee aromas mixed with light caramel and a coffee liquor-like odor with mild dark sugar, cocoa and light vanilla accent. The feel is great with a thick body and moderate sweetness which is balanced by a moderate roasted and semi-bitter malt texture with slightly high alcohol in the feel with a drying finish, very intense!

The flavor has rich roasted coffee and malty intensity with dark sugar and light woody flavor with some vanilla-like spice and creamy flavor. The dark mocha element from the malt is full in the taste with a mild sweetness and light alcohol taste in the finish which is mostly dry. The overall impression is that this is a great coffee stout -tons of coffee in the taste and the strength you might expect from a beer that has Jesus in the title.

11.2oz bottle from Sprayberry Bottle Shop (Marietta, GA). 8.99. Bottled... recently, I think. Served in a Three Floyds teku.

Pours oil black with almost two fingers of thick mocha head. Head fades to a thin cap that leaves pretty spots of lace.

Smells of sweet creamed coffee, fudge and a hint of vanilla. Yum.

Oh, wow! Bold, rich bittersweet creamed coffee, dark chocolate fudge, molasses, vanilla, faint cinnamon, some dark fruit and a healthy kick of alcohol. The heat meshes well with the rich blend of flavors. This is seriously good stuff.

Thick, heavy, creamy, tongue coating body with moderate carbonation. The booze gives a nice alcohol cooling effect. Rich, fudgey coffee finish.

Evil Twin does it again- this is a fantastic stout that I'd rank right up there with Imperial Biscotti Break. It exceeds on every level: it's gorgeous, smells very inviting, feels creamy thick and it's freakin delicious! Sure, it's a bit pricey but I'd happily pay it again for another bottle or two.

11.2 oz bottle. Pours near jet black, thin brown head disappears almost immediately. Terrific rich chocolate and coffee aroma, vanilla. Taste starts out with sweet chocolate milkiness, then espresso and dry bitterness. Just like the regular version, alcohol very well hidden. Medium silky smooth mouthfeel. I love coffee and this brew does it right, delicious!

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Brooklyn chalice.

Appearance: Pours pitch black with a moderate amount of bubbles. Slight finger of tan head that quickly fades away.

Smell: A rich and roasty dark malt driven aroma with a big scent of coffee and chocolate. Dark roasted barley malt with a big scent of coffee beans, dark chocolate, smoke, toasted bread, biscuit, grains, caramel, and yeast. Sweet hints of molasses and vanilla. Anise black licorice hints along with some tobacco and leather. Dark fruit hints of raisin, plum, and cherry. Also some nice hints of earthy hops. A really good roasty aroma.

Taste: Like the smell hints at, a roasty and rich dark malt driven taste with notes of coffee and chocolate. Dark roasted barley malt with notes of coffee beans, bitter dark chocolate, toasted bread, smoke, biscuit, grains, caramel, and yeast. Sweet taste of molasses and some creamy vanilla. Good notes of black licorice from anise. Also some notes of tobacco along with leather. Dark fruit undertones of cherry, plum, and raisin. Some earthy hop bitterness. A really nice taste.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Rich, creamy, and fairly oily. Alcohol heat is masked very well for 12%.

Overall: A really good Imperial Coffee Stout. Good mix of roasty coffee and chocolate flavor with some nice dark fruit presence.

Tasting 9/9/14

This big stout shows off the big, thick, robust body that stout lovers look for. It's heavy and black, pouring completely viscous and absolutely opaque. The head, a medium-brown colored crown, sits proudly at two fingers, thick and immovable. It leaves on the glass an equally proud display of heavy lacing.
This beer displays all kinds of complexity, strength and balance in good measure. There's a show of roast, to be sure: the malts lay it down, the coffee is evident and seems fresh, there's a bit of char and some toasted nut to add to it all. What it does extremely well, though, is to cut out any acridity, any acidity that roasting tends to bring out, or any harshness in the char. Then it brings out a very creamy sweetness, lots of vanilla and an almost whipped cream note with, perhaps, a touch of molasses on the end. There's a little heat with very little ethanolic booziness. Really, there's just so much coffee, sweetness and roast balancing each other so nicely; this is a really excellent brew.
The thick and viscous body is as expected, with the robustness likewise expected. It flows on the tongue, pretty heavy in the middle but very smooth and with lots of complexity lingering in the finish.

A: poured into a snifter to a viscous black beer topped by a three finger dense tan head that retains well and leaves good lacing
S: smells of roasted malts, coffee and chocolate with a definite slight hop oil aroma
T: taste is surprisingly hop forward with some pine oil flavors.; there's also some roasted malts, coffee and chocolate. the swallow is roasted malt, charred wood, chocolate and coffee.
M: this is a big and fairly full beer in the mouth but it isn't chewy. Carbonation is soft but the beer isn't undercarbed. the finish on this beer is surprisingly refreshing from the amount of hops but the beer turns dry a few seconds after the swallow
O: this is an interesting and complex offering from Evil Twin and like the rest of the beers he does this one is top notch. I thought it would be a little more coffee forward and while the coffee is there it seems to be that the hops shine a little brighter. could be an older bottle as well as there is no bottling date.

A: Pours a pitch black color with a minimal head that leaves the tiniest ring of lacing around the glass

S: Massive amounts of roasted malts, coffee, espresso, dark chocolate brownies, and hints of vanilla all come out with some aggression. Hard to get anything more underneath all that, but nothing else is really needed

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with the roasted malts and coffee and goes into some semi-sweet dark chocolate, notes of brownies and vanilla, and even some hints of dark fruits. Finishes with more of the roast and coffee along with traces of bitterness and lingering sweetness

M: Medium-full bodied with low-moderate carbonation. Very smooth

O: This honestly comes close to hitting BCBCS (minus the barrel) for me, and I've had that more than a few times. Just an amazing coffee stout that drinks scarily well for being 12%. This is one $7 single 12 oz. purchase you won't regret

Pitch black pour with dark brown head, moderate carbonation which fades quickly. you can smell the coffee influence immediately! Intense espresso with a touch of cream and vanilla maybe? Each sip is definitely an experience to savor and swirl around the mouth. A lovely beer for those who love coffee!
