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.
