Single from Bine and Vine in San Diego.
Pours a thick black with tight short lived reddish brown head.
Aroma caramel malt, toffee, molasses, a bit of chocolate, and vaguely nutty.
Taste follows with sweet chocolate malt, caramel, toffee, and rich molasses; as warmed a bit of nuttiness, finishes with a bittersweet note.
Medium full mouthfeel - surprisingly less rich than its namesake - smooth, sweet but not cloying. Quality imperial stout but do prefer the original Even More Jesus.

On tap at the Pour Taproom in Greenville SC.
Pours very dark brown with reddish-brown edges and a decent if a bit bubbly tan head.
Sweet aroma that's a bit like Pecan pie but certainly has more vanilla.
The rich flavor delivers some roasted pecan notes and is less sweet than the aroma suggests. The pecans linger on in the aftertaste.

16oz can into a Surly tulip.

A: DARK (gotta love that), with a dark brown head that returns with a quick swirl.

S: Dark molasses and pecans, walnuts. Dry and not entirely appetizing. Missing some of the decadent sweetness I associate with Pecan Pie.

T: Follows the nose, the nuttiness hits you first and twists into a dryness. Molasses sweetness follows - caramel as well? Again, missing that "desserty" character that I want.

MF: Medium-to-full bodied but drying.

O: Wouldn't search this one out again, didn't hit the notes that I was hoping it would. Yes - it tastes like Pecans. No - it doesn't taste like Pecan Pie. But overall, not bad.

Can: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a medium size brown foamy head with OK retention with light lacing. Aroma of sweet chocolate malt notes with some light hazelnut/pecan notes also perceptible. Taste is also a mix of sweet chocolate malt notes with some light hazelnut/pecan notes and heavy molasses notes can also be detected. Body is pretty full with oily texture and good carbonation with no real apparent alcohol notes. Not bad but a bit overwhelming.

4.29/5  rDev +5.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Black with a medium-sized dark beige head that gradually faded. A nice looking Imperial Stout

Smell: Molasses and roasted malt aromas. The nose is appealing though not upfront

Taste: The taste profile features molasses and roasted malt notes just as the nose suggested. The beer has a restrained alcohol presence for the listed 12% ABV. I get a mild nuttiness but I'm not sure if that's due to the power of suggestion by me knowing that pecan extract was added. The beer tastes like a prototypical stout.

Mouth-feel: On the lighter side of full bodied with a medium level of carbonation. The body is spot on where it needs to be.

Overall: A very good Imperial Stout which tastes like a true stout which has an upfront roasted malt profile. the molasses works well with the stout base and I like the fact it's roasted malt profile isn't dulled as so many stouts are today to please the masses. The beer has a nice full-bodied mouthfeel also.

A 1 pint can, batch #001, but with no clear canned on or best before date. Poured into a snifter glass.

Appearance: Black in colour with a one finger brown head that had decent retention while leaving some spotty lacing.

Aroma: Sweet, caramel, toffee, chocolate, nutty, nougat, cocoa, light roast.

Taste: Moderately sweet, roast, butterscotch, toffee, caramel, vanilla, nutty, pecan, hint of dark fruits with a lightly bitter finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with soft carbonation.

Overall: Perhaps on the verge of being too sweet for me with the butterscotch and dark fruit flavours. Pecan extract was used but the nuttiness was not as strong as I would have hoped for.

Batch: #005

Poured into a Tree House glass a very nice dark brown/black color, very nice carbonation, with a very nice thick/creamy one-finger plus tan head, which also leaves some pretty nice oil slicks and some sticky lacing behind. The nose is malty, hoppy, with a pretty nice chocolate/toffee notes, with a pretty nice dark fruit complex (grapes, figs, raisins, dates, cherrys, plums), some nice vanilla, pecan, licorice. The taste is very nice malty, hoppy, with a very nice chocolate/toffee notes, with a pretty nice dark fruit complex (grapes, figs, raisins, dates, cherrys, plums), kinda roasty, some vanilla, pecans, licorice. there is a nice sweetness, Full body, ABV hidden nicely, a pretty complex brew. Overall, this is a very tasty brew. Glad to see it around here.

T - The taste is molasses, caramel, dark chocolate, coffee, roasted malts and light pecans.

16 ounce can, looks like it says Batch #001 or #081 stamped on the bottom of the can. Served in a snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with about an inch tan head. Head retention and lacing are both good. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like roasted malt, nuts/pecans, molasses, coffee, dark chocolate and a bit of licorice. Taste is similar to the aroma, but there's also some burnt/charred malt, dark fruit and boozy flavors noticeable too. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it's slick and creamy with a moderate amount of carbonation. I was expecting this to be sweeter and nuttier tasting, but with that being said I still think it's a good enough brew. However, I do like a lot of Evil Twin's other stouts more than this one. Certainly worth picking up.

Pours a very thick black color. There's a 1 1/2 finger brown head, and there's some good head retention. There's minimal lacing on the glass as the head dissipates.
The nose has notes of chocolate, and a slight nutty aroma, but there's really not too much to it at all.
Taste - There's pecan here. Up front there's some chocolate, and caramel. The backside I get some pecan notes.
The body is a bit thinner than I'd expect.Minimal boozy burn. Somehat of a creamy feel to it.
It's a good beer, and quite tasty, but it is a bit of a let down. I was expecting a lot more from it.

Oh no, what have you done evil twin? I love the EMJ series, but this was a hard miss. Toasted pecan, buttery malt, molasses up front is good, but has horrible ash tray and metal aftertaste. Smell is certainly sweeter, but also ashy with big molasses and nuts. Still has a great thick yet drinkable body. Disappointing for sure

Date: Batch 001, consumed on 09/25/18.

Appearance: Even More Pecan Pie Jesus pours out sold black in color and looks massively thick as well. It almost has the appearance of used motor oil thickened with syrup. The head, which rises about a fingers worth, is darker than most I've seen.

Aroma: The most apparent thing on the nose is that huge but typical Even More Jesus roasted malt aroma. Roast? Like hell, these are massively charred, almost burnt malts and I absolutely love that aroma. The molasses comes through bold as well but not in a gimmicky way, you can tell this is an imperial stout first rather than a sugar drenched cola drink with an ABV statement. The background is all rich malt aromas of tobacco, dark chocolate, and maybe some date or raisin. I am not getting any real nutty notes though.

Taste: The fact that this is an Even More Jesus variant is unmistakeable on the taste, the base beer is one of the best beers available for my money and it comes through wonderfully here in all its burnt malty glory. The molasses is here in spades but that gargantuan roast keeps it from ever tasting too sweet. I do find it to be naturally sweeter than the regular version but also sweeter than the maple coconut Even More Coco Jesus was, but it still feels almost bitter and earthy against all these nonsense pastry stouts. The finish leaves dark roast coffee bitterness circling around the palate with slight fruity flavors and some tobacco and leather. I am still not getting any pecan flavor, but there is a butteriness somewhere in here, could that be the pecan extract? The mouthfeel is as would be expected, palate coating, big, thick, and chewy. If the ABV is apparent at all, then just barely. As it comes up to room temperature, the level of sweetness ticks up a few notches, but nothing unpleasant as those malts are still bringing the bitterness. I often find my self questioning if these high caloric carb bombs are worth it, sometimes they are and sometimes the aren't, but the the case of Evil Twin, they most assuredly the hell are.

Good, but a bit too heavy, and not nearly sweet enough to be pie like. Very roasty, with a deep toasted pecan middle that stretches on. A bit of a dark chocolate note creeps in, and the char keeps coming. A bit much too finish- its needs a bit of bright sweetness rather than that brooding molasses sweetness.

L - Pitch, opaque black with a thin dark tan head that dissipates quickly and leaves behind very minimal lacing. It just looks incredibly viscous - like syrup pouring out of the can.
S - Dark chocolate, caramel, toffee, pecans, sugar - a nice smell, but not particularly strong.
T - Follows the nose with rich dark chocolate up front followed by notes of toffee, molasses, pecans, caramel, some dark fruit notes and even maple syrup. Slight warming alcohol notes, but only very slight.
F - Full bodied with a light amount of carbonation. Smooth, viscous, silky, heavy, syrupy - but it really goes well with the style and flavor profile.
O - This is a pretty fantastic stout - the flavor profile is spot on, the mouth feel is outstanding - it could really just use some improvement on the look and smell, otherwise it would be near perfect.

Pint can. Couldn’t find a canned date although said batch #004 20:18. Purchased at Mkt Sq.

Pour: tulip glass. Pours black, black and some more black with some slight brown tones. Half ringer deep tan head that dissipates into a thick ring and a swirly cloud in the middle. Moderate lacing. Beautiful.

Nose: definite pecan pie, and I love pecan pie. Pecans really stand out. Molasses or other sweetness secondary. Mild alcohol in the nose.

Taste: alcohol, burnt sugar, burnt molasses, more bitterness/burnt toast than I expected. I like burnt toast but this is a bit metal tasting for me. Some pecan but missing the sweetness I would have expected.

Mouthfeel: pretty viscous, low carbonation. Syrupy.

Overall: probably won’t buy again but glad I tried. A little more sweetness and less bitterness would improve it for me. Drank about half the can before moving on. Not bad for a $4 can.

16oz can. Poured out an opaque, jet-black color with a small, light brown head of foam. It smelled of toffee, nutty pecans, chocolate and roasted malt. Boozy and sweet with a strong nutty pecan flavor. Some chocolate and toffee with a mild bitterness.

16 oz can poured into Funky Buddha mini snifter.

Inky black pour as expected with a brown head of 1/2 finger. It recedes to a thick fingernail and leaves lacing up the sides of the glass.

Aromas that come to mind are general sweet dessert stout flavors - flaky sugary crusts, brown sugar, and glazed pecan...I think I just described a pecan pie, so yeah that's...yeah it's on point. Some slight chocolate mousse aromas as well. Some good roasted malt notes can be nosed in there as well, after all this is still a beer.

Flavor is a bit disappointing, I think it could really benefit from sitting awhile to let this alcohol heat wave fade a bit. I get a ton of rubbing alcohol, followed by bitter piney hops, bitter dark chocolate, burnt pot coffee, and burnt brown sugar. I don't get any sort of pecan or pie or sweetness whatsoever.

Feel is thick and viscous just as it should be, with an immense alcohol burn and some biting acidity.

Overall I can't really drink this. It was amazing until it hit my lips. I must've gotten a bad can but I'm not going to invest in a 4 pack to find out. I'd much rather get another 4 pack of that amazing Chili Biscotti Break.

L: Poured from a tallboy can to a pint glass. Had a dark brown / black color and a thick, opaque consistency. There was a two inch, foamy, tan-colored, long-lasting head. Excellent lacing.

S: A very nice aroma of pecans, malt, molasses, and toffee.

T: Tasted of a fair amount of malt (present throughout), light toffee notes, tons of pecans (they didn't skimp), some molasses, light chocolate, and a little coffee as well. While this flavor borders on being one-note, it still manages to work. The pecans do tend to dominate the taste, but the chocolate and molasses offer good support. Oddly tasty.

F: A good amount of carbonation with a somewhat dry finish. Medium-bodied.

O: I don't think this is my first choice for a stout, but it is strangely likable. Worth a look.

Batch #004.
16 oz. can.

Moderate pour yields a dark tan head over a very dark brown, near black, body with fairly thick and sticky lacing. Nose of molasses and pecan with roasted malt and booze. Taste of pecan, molasses, and milk chocolate. Finish of bitter chocolate, toasted caramel, and booze. Nice feel and overall, a good dessert beer, but may be a bit too sweet for a lot of folks. Cheers.

Poured into a snifter, the appearance was a nice looking dark brown color close to black. Dark eggshell white foamy head about a finger and a half's worth falling off fairly nice. Mellow strings of lace slid off from a delicate ring of lace.
The aroma combined a sweet nutty presence to a modest roast. Some toast, maple syrup, coffee, chocolate malts - somewhat milk chocolate to dark chocolate and the sweet side of the anise.
The flavor moderately leaned towards the sweet side and trying to develop a light roast. Aftertaste is maple-like, roasty, toast, milk and dark chocolate and a touch of anise.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a fair sipping quality about it. Not cloying but having a sly stickiness to it, there's a nice carbonation and ABV about it. Finish was slightly sticky with a nutty note to it.
Overall, it's a dessert beer in a can. Practically perfect for this time of year and would even be a touch better on colder nights.

I immediately enjoyed this one. Pours dark black, with little head that quickly dissipates. The aroma gives notes of booze and pecan. The taste is complex. Starts of with toasty maltiness that turns burnt pecan and finishes sweet chocolate and coffee. Hard to drink more than a couple in a row.

Head production and retention are poor, with the dark brown head quickly disappearing entirely. Brew is an inviting purplish-black.

Nose is strong and boozy, implying grapes, coffee, chocolate, and brown sugar.

Flavor follows, with an initial sweetness and caramel edge, quickly giving way to the very strong roast for which Even More Jesus is well known. A nutty edge starts to accompany the bitter chocolate, molasses, and burnt coffee flavor, lasting through the finish.

Hot and boozy, slick and oily on the palate.

A very impressive beer, with a sweetness and nuttiness that add some depth and balance to Even more Jesus. Not quite a dessert stout, not quite a breakfast stout, but 100% a big, bold stout.
