Poured cold into a long-stemmed tulip, an aggressive pour yields a thin head of dark tan over a deep mahogany colored body. No highlights, because it's lightproof. Aromas and flavors are very bourbon forward, with the beer settling into a nice balance at room temperature. The roasty malt character is not overpowering, no char, a little dark fruit, a smidgen of coffee and molasses, a hint of licorice, and faint notes of maple syrup lingering on the finish. There is also some tannic astringence and a bit of barrel sourness. Some alcohol warmth, but not as much as might be expected. This is IMO much better at room temperature than at fridge temperature.

12oz bottle thanks to Steve. 3 into the Jesus lineup. Dark black pour with small head that subsides to ring. More maple and booze, syrupy and sweet. Molasses and roast grains, thick and slippery. Mildly smoky.

Served in a goblet from 12oz bottle.

Appearance: Thick dark brown tinted black body with medium bubbles creating a subtle dark tan head rising maybe half a finger's length.

Smell: Deep warm brown sugar scent with whiskey notes. Strong and smooth at the same time.

Taste: Sweet toffee and light whiskey notes. You feel coffee and this chocolate feel which remains lingering on the palate.

Mouth: sticky brew and honestly the best characteristic of the beer. Medium carbonation which is a nudge light, heavy molasses at the end.

Overall: Definitely a must grab, if you crave quality this one you can't let go. Always Ina glass. Salud!

A 12 fl. oz. bottle with no bottled on or best before date. Poured into a snifter glass.

Appearance: Black in colour with a minimal brown head and sparse lacing.

Aroma: Molasses, raisins, bourbon, brown sugar and chocolate with only hints of maple.

Taste: Sweet, dark fruit, raisins, char, light smoke, roasty malts, milk chocolate, vanilla, bourbon and booze with touches of maple (more so as it warms).

Mouthfeel: Creamy, smooth, full bodied with low carbonation.

Overall: Probably too sweet and boozy for me while not having enough maple flavours.

Tasted from bottle. Pours jet black with dark brown head. Coffee, cocoa and some bourbon on aroma. Sticky, chewy thick mouthfeel. Flavors of cocoa, toffee, maple syrup, bourbon, caramel. Not overly maple which is nice. Tasted against regular Jesus and double barrel and I think DB was best.

This is - on record - the best beer Ive ever had. While rating, I put effort into finding some area to fault this beer and couldn't. Anyone who rated this beer less then perfect (5) in any/all catagories either A) has a difficult time offering a perfect score to anything or B) doesnt know enough about craft beer. I've rated many - this one stands out as better then all.

Pitch black color with thin dark baige head. Smell offer bourbon & maple syrup but subtle on both. Neither smells were over-powering. Taste was perfectly smooth with again a great balance between maple & bourbon.

This was a quietly released beer that should be heavily sought after and demands should be made to produce again.
