Canned 11/08/17, 10:37.

Pours thick and black, cold and with hardly any head. A thin strip of beige lace sits on top, but this thing is motor oil.

A sweet nose, with chocolate, vanilla, and subtle coffee coming out and greeting a very apparent chili pepper presence. They work together well but it seems to be foreshadowing a spicy beer to come.

Predominantly sweet beer, with the cacao nibs taking over but roasty coffee lingering in the tail. It’s been almost a year since it was canned and I feel like during that time all the chilies and vanilla have faded away. There is some very subtle heat
Initially, but nothing lingers. A tasty beer nonetheless, but I just wished for more from that nice adjunct combination.

A little thinner than I expected, but a good smooth mouthfeel and a good carb level. Not too sticky in the finish, but good weight to this beer.

Can dated 05/04/2018.
This was poured into a snifter.
It poured like motor oil and even had a soft 'glub glub' sound as it came out of the can. A finger and a half's worth of tan foamy head dissipated slowly to leave some moderate lace.
The aroma had a fantastic blend of roasty coffee beans, smooth silky milk chocolate, vanilla bean sweetness, caramel malt sweetness, cinnamon, brown sugar and chili peppers.
The flavor yielded towards the sweet side initially and the spicy edge of the chili peppers and cinnamon tried to make a decent play but still maintained a delicate balance towards the back. Not much of an aftertaste but mainly had the milk chocolate and vanilla bean sweetness up front.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a fine sipping quality about it. Chili pepper spiciness created enough harshness to kick my tongue. Carbonation felt good. ABV felt fine. Finishes with the milk chocolate, vanilla bean and chili peppers.
Overall, a very nicely balanced imperial stout, well worthy to revisit preferably for me during the Winter.

Magic. Love Even More Jesus and I can feel the chili burn from the BOMB. mouthfeel is thick and fudgy. Pure bliss. Strong coffee smell and cocoa nibs. Just don’t taste the vanilla really but I guess that may just be added for the smoothness. No alcohol burn. Lovely beer. Little pricey for one 16oz pint though. $10? Should be $7-$8 in my opinion.

16 oz can poured into a snifter.

Jet black color, dark mocha 2 finger head that has some staying power. Impressive glass lacing for such a heafty beer.

Chocolate, licorice, faint coffee, caramel, vanilla, butterscotch and pepper skins on the nose.

Taste mimics the nose with the chocolate, pepper skins and licorice in the forefront. On the sweet side but the bitter coffee finish helps balance. Pepper heat builds slightly after each sip.

Mouthfeel is full with soft carbonation. Quite coating and smooth.

Impressive brew with a nice mix of aromas and flavors. It is expensive but definitely enjoyable. Glad I bought a few when they showed up at my local beer store. This will be a killer winter nightcap. Recommended.

Can to snifter.

LOOK: thick dark black pour, healthy light brown head, fades to lacing slowly; excellent retention, reforms with a creamyhead. (4.75)
AROMA: toasty malt, mulch, vanilla, brown sugar. Pumpernickel? (4.0)
TASTE: dark chocolate, sweet vanilla, medium roasted malt, great balance of sweet/savory. Touch of peppery heat but not full mexican stout. (4.5)
FEEL: smooth, super balanced. (4.25)

Very Nice beer. Like some other Evil Twin Collaborations (combinations), I feel this also loses something in being too much at once. Not as thick as EMJ, not as spicy or flavorful as BOMB!
Very tasty enjoyable though.

Canned 3/15/18; drank 7/28/18 @ the Yarchives.

Midnight black appearance.

A rough pour yielded a HUGE dark khaki head (careful pouring!); a thick curtain of tree-rung lace.

Dark roast coffee bean, cream, raspberry & mild dark chocolate notes in the nose.

Thick, creamy mouthfeel.

Dark roast coffee bean, raspberry & dark chocolate flavors up front; faint fresh earth notes on the finish.

Sweet but balanced; a real nice stout!

Moderate pour yields a more than inviting one inch brown head over a nearly black body with some lacing. Nose of roasted (slightly smokey, like chilpotle?) malt, cocoa, coffee, and vanilla. Taste mirrors nose with chocolate fudge flavors dominating over vanilla, coffee, and chili (which builds in your throat over time.) Me likey! Very nice feel and overall, another chocolate bomb from the minds of the evil one and his thumpin' friends.
Cheers!

I’m not a fan of stouts but Irnjoyed this one. My palette is not super-sensitive but I picked up on chocolate and coffee with just a tiny hint of heat. The finish was a little more bitter than I prefer. Mouthfeel is excellent - thick, creamy and rich.
