16 ounce can into a snifter. Batch 001, had 4/10/18.

Pours near black and opaque, with a one inch head of darker foam and light, foamy lacing. Aromas of roasted malt, toffee, caramel, chocolate, cocoa, some pecans, some vanilla. The taste lines up about the same- dark roast malt, toffee, caramel, more pecans than the nose, chocolate, lighter vanilla, light raisins. A light sweetness. Smooth, creamy, a very solid full body, well carbonated.

It’s as full bodied and roasty as the original, and while I do like sweet, I didn’t think this was all that sweet. The pecans are effective, and although you won’t feel like you just ate a handful, it’s a good flavor. Overall, lots of good flavor and aromas, liked it just as much as the original. Well worth a purchase.

Can to snifter.

I love beer and I love pecans, but haven't found the right combo yet.

LOOK: Thick Black, no light comes through. Medium beige head. OK retention.

AROMA: wood, roasted malt, peanut and pecan nutty flavors, molasses.

TASTE: I've found in the past that pecan in beer casts a very dry and bitter finish; but I think the EMJ base is so sweet that they counter each other well. Strong Char does still come through and gives it some heat. Pecan, Molasses, Roasted malt. Slight chemical taste; not sure if that is a remnant of the pecan or something else, but I don;t remember from any other EMJ variation. Not a killer, but worth mentioning.

FEEL: full bodied, and super thick, but still not incredibly smooth.

Probably the best pecan beer I've had...not that there have been that many, but I've always found them disappointing. While not a home run, this is certainly enjoyable. A BBA version would be like a liquid Kentucky Derby Pie dream.

Look - This pours thick and incredibly dark, like the absence of light. It also has a nice, thick and frothy chocolate shake-looking head.

Smell - The smell is incredibly sweet, like syrupy sweet, along with a lot of chocolate and just a hint of pecan pie filling (that gooey part in the middle).

Taste - This is a very sweet beer up front. The molasses comes through immediately and punches you int eh face. It also has an odd, tart woodiness that coats the back of my throat and just never seems to go away. It has some bitter coffee notes to offset the sweet, as well as almost a cherry or licorice tartness to it.

Feel - this beer is thick and rich and creamy, coating my entire mouth and throat and leaving the flavor their to linger forever, for better or worse.

Overall - There's a lot going on in this beer, and unfortunately none of it seemed to work together Rather, it was a parade of oddities. I think the molasses was a bit overdone and didn't really remind me of pecan pie.

Pairs Well With - Something familiar, like milk and cookies, to bring it all back.

I am CANtinuing my current run-through of Evil Twin CANs, but it just seems like it is an unending assortment from which to choose. Such are the trails & tribulations of The CANQuest (tm). C'est la guerre!

From the CAN: "A few times in the history of craft beer a highly praised beer rises beyond mortal stardom into a higher godly league. Usually the recipe to make such heavenly drops is thick fudge-like body, pitch black color, amazingly overwhelming aromas of chocolate, coffee, dark fruits, molasses, pecan extract and obviously only made in limited amounts. People - this is the taste of rare!"; "Imperial Stout brewed with Molasses and with Pecan Extract added".

The Crack! of the vent revealed a brimful craft CAN as it spritzed across my fingertips! Well, I CAN't say that I didn't get my money's worth. I began a slow, gentle Glug into the awaiting glass since there was so much liquid to deal with & I really did not want to spill any of this gem. I followed the Glug with an in-glass swirl that raised two fingers of dense, foamy, deep-brown head with good retention that left moderate lacing in its wake. Color was Black/Opaque (SRM = 44), allowing ZERO light penetration. Nose smelled like black coffee, dark chocolate, treacle/molasses & a light nuttiness. Mouthfeel was thick & viscous, which was not surprising since it looked like motor oil as I poured it from the CAN. The taste was really rich and chocolaty with the treacle/molasses giving it an edge that I might not have otherwise had. The pecan flavor began subtly, but was more noticeable on the finish. Finish was dry, kind of boozy, but very much in keeping with the style.

Superior stout action! Pitch black and viscous pour kicked up a finger of dark foam and enticing aromas of pecans, molasses, and chocolate... Tastes and feel aligned appropriately: rich chocolate molasses suffused with sweet pecan, hints of espresso and licorice in the background; full-bodied and smooth, rich but with a bit of drying char on the finish as the bitterness reigns the sugars in... Good stuff...

Served in an over-sized wine glass.

Appearance: Thick dark brown tinted black body pouring like crude motor oil. Head came off pretty high maybe two fingers lengthsettling after 5 minutes of sipping. Sticky lacing.

Smell: Heavy hopped and slight warm caramel infused into the nostrils. As the beer warms up it becomes very addicting. Little more potency would've kicked it up a few points.

Taste: Sweet chocolate and light coffee. The Malts are heavily complex. I definitely am feeling doses of toffee..not too sugary but adds a perplexing twist to the beer.

Mouth: Sticky brew. Medium carbonation with a full body. Has a roasted after feel remind me of toasted fudge cake if that's ever a thing.

Overall: Nice addition to the Jesus series and definitely not one to pass up if ever seen in the shelf or at a bar. The best imperial stout produced by Eviltwin, probably not but one that should be kept steady in your fridge as long as it's available. Happy Easter and always in a glass....Salud.

On draft. Served in a goblet glass. Dark black body, half finger white head, short retention and a bit of lacing. Smell is milk chocolate, cocoa, dark chocolate fudge, a slight bit of nuttiness. Overall, sugary sweet nose. Flavour isn't too different, sugar, milk chocolate, a touch of cocoa and espresso bitterness, which is outdone by the sugar, milk chocolate and a bit of nutty sweetness. Trace roast. Mouthfeel is full bodied, lower carbonation, very sweet finish.

I personally love the regular Jesus but dislike the coconut version. Hopefully this one will be better in the same vein as Imperial Biscotti Break.
A - Pours as expected just a 1/4 inch of foam atop a very dark brew.
S - Slightly chemically produced pecan pie aroma kind of musty but full of sweet sugars and nutty goodness.
T - Well it smells better than it tastes just like the coconut version it has a very weird flavor with some sweet and nutty flavors and some smooth bittersweet chocolate taste.
M - Pretty slick and smooth for the 12%

Overall will have to stick with Imperial Biscotti Break since it has the perfect ratio of sweetness to nutty flavor. This beer is kind of a mess.
