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.

by IKR from California

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.

Can at home. Pours a pitch black colour with a beige head - short retention. Aroma's of dark fudge, fruit candy ,light alcohol. Retronasal it's very fudgey with some roast, fruit, somewhat nutty albeit not particularly pecan. Flavour is moderate sweet and roasted, nutty. Almost full bodied. Long roasty and nutty moderate bitter finish.

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.

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.

A - Pours a motor oil black with a two finger foamy tan head. Tons of soapy lacing.

S - Aroma is caramel, pecans and dark chocolate.

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

M - Full body with medium carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel with a soft dry finish.

O - Pretty tasty flavored stout. Big sweet flavors make this a good dessert beer.

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.

What can I say about Evil twin that I haven't said? They make great brews, but I am especially crazy about the stouts. This is yet another great one.

I wanted boozy, I got boozy.

Black and oily, stanky like a rogue flower, it is a sweeter yet version of a sweet stout.

Highly recommended.

Big and deep. Some nuts, but not notably so. Not sure it stands up to the other EMJs.
