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.

Pours black with a two inch, very well retained fluffy tan head that left excellent lacing. Smells of roasted malts, molasses, toffee and pecans. Taste starts off with dark roasted malts, burnt brown sugar, toffee, pecans and a hint of dark choolate. As the beer warms the burnt brown sugar flavor changes to maple. Heavy bodied, well carbonated for a stout, creamy mouth feel with a slightly dry finish.

Oily black pour into a stout glass. Either I was not careful pouring or this is pretty carbonated--2" of mocha-colored head. Really fizzy. I thought the smell would be stronger but burnt sugar and toffee were there. The taste followed as you'd expect, along with dark roastiness, except the pecan was not pronounced. Not to be gross, but a little burp brought more pecan taste than the beer. The mouthfeel is luxurious, coating the tongue. It's sweet and roasty so enjoyable enough, I just expected something a little more actual pecan flavor.

Pours black with two fingers of mocha colored head that fizzes up eagerly and retains well. Aroma is pecans, molasses, toffee, and heavy roasted and toasted malts. Malts are huge, with the remainder of the notes coming off fairly natural (i.e not artificial). Flavor profile is roasted, biscuit, and toasted malts with a big hit of pecan, molasses, toffee, and burnt sugar. Despite the list of sugary notes, it's well balanced with the bitter, strong malts counteracting the sugar notes well. It comes off as if natural ingredients were used as opposed to flavored syrups. Mouth feel is thick and dense, with an almost chewy feeling due to its thickness. It's velvety, with minute grain adding to the texture slightly. Overall, a hefty stout with pecan. Pecan notes are present, but are far from the center of attention here.

Served in a Teku 3.0 from a 16oz can.

Basic imperial stout body/flavor with a bit of bitterness hit at the end followed by the pecan flavor..

Pours black as dirty oil. Chocolate malt colored two finger head. Moderate lacing. Faint aroma of caramel, brown sugar, old coffee, and licorice. Sweet molasses, caramel, coffee and black licorice flavors. Slight bitterness lingers. Medium body and light carbonation. Smooth with a slight oily feel. Boozy effect catches up quick at 12% ABV. Great brew. Of course, the more I sip, the more I like. Would buy again.

Poured into a Fremont small snifter. Pours a very dark mahogany brown, appearing nearly opaque black in the glass with a fine, half finger medium brown head with great retention and nice lacing. Aroma of dark toasted malt, molasses, chocolate and nuts with a hint of licorice and dark dried fruit. Flavor of dark toasted malt with light char, molasses, pecans, dark chocolate, drip coffee. Pecan flavor becomes more clear and authentic in the finish, which has lingering light char and coffee. Nice medium body with moderate creaminess; silky. This tasted pretty much as I expected it to. I'm a big fan of the base stout and the pecans appear as vague nuts in the aroma, but true pecan flavor as it finishes. Complex with good coffee and chocolate notes as well as nice dark malt char. ABV dangerously well covered; but still has a big kick at half a glass. Very nice and the pecan addition was well handled. Looked, smelled and tasted great.
