I def enjoyed the original, and I've been waiting for a good time to crack this. First snowstorm of the year. Canned 11/08/17, slightly more than a year old

Pours a mocha colored thick frothy creamy head that hits 1 finger and sticks around forever, great retention, nice soapy lacing, and long legs, thick and dark as tar.

Nose plenty of vanilla and coffee, a bit of fresh roasted coffee and espresso, with a little raw cocoa, dark chocolate and creamy milk chocolate fudge, thick dark malts, little roast and caramel, faint chili pepper, and touch of marshmallowy nougat candy

Taste big thick rich creamy chocolate, cocoa, dark chocolate hot cocoa and a little fudgey, thick coffee espresso syrup like but not syrupy somehow, some vanilla, raw vanilla beans but less than the nose had, mild chili pepper as well but not much and no heat, perhaps a little ancho chili, vanilla ice cream and a touch of caramel, mild caramel and candy bar nougat like, but not too sweet, a tiny flash of alcohol late, very smooth and creamy

Mouth is fuller bod but not thick or syrupy, and not super heavy either, decent carb and almost no alcohol, a hint of chili pepper heat late on the back of the throat and tongue

Wow this was impressive, there is almost no alcohol presence despite 13% and not super thick syrupy and heavy which is usually the best way to hide the alcohol, vanilla was nice but could have been a bit more, and especially same with the chilies but then again it might be the age, nice cocoa and decent coffee, in general a really nice beer

Poured from 12oz bottle into glass. Bottled in 2016.
Black colored body with a dark brown edge when back lit. Minimal head, kind of an oily bubbly surface. No lacing.
Aroma of dark roasted malts, dark chocolate, vanilla, and chiles, with a hint of coffee.
Taste of dark fudge chocolate, faded coffee, vanilla, and chiles. Alcohol is very present.
Around a medium mouth feel, with a rather thick texture. Lower carbonation.
Big powerful stout with gobs of fudge. The chiles still have some burn to them. Demands to be sipped.

De Tercertiempocervezas. En copa Teku. Viendo Colony 1x09-2x01. Absoluto equilibrio en todos los matices. Especialmente encomiable es lo bien ajustados que estan los chiles. Los 13 grados ni se intuyen

Pours black with a one inch tan head that dissipated quickly to a ring and left minimal spots of lacing. Smells of roasted malts, coffee, chocolate and vanilla. Tastes of dark roasted malts, bittersweet chocolate, vanilla, coffee, tobacco and a bit of smoke with the slightest hint of chili peppers. Full bodied, moderate carbonation, slick and oily mouth feel and very mild dry and bitter finish.

Can: Poured a pitch-black stout with a dark brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of black chocolate, coffee, cacao and vanilla is quite enjoyable. Taste is a mix of cacao, light subtle roasted malt notes with lots of residual sugar notes and some vanilla, light tobacco notes with some coffee. Body is full with oily texture and good carbonation with subtle warming alcohol notes. Enjoyable with great mix of flavours but maybe tad too much residual sugar.

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.
