Style: American Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 12.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
A few times in the history of craft beer it has happened that a highly praised beer rises beyond mortal stardom into the 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 and muscovado sugar, obviously only made in limited amounts and most crucial of all -- it must taste rare!

Canned spring 2016; drank 6/7/16 @ the Yarchives.

Inky black appearance.

A rough pour yielded a HUGE dark khaki head (careful pouring!); a thick, frothy curtain of lace.

Booze heat, mild banana, faint milk chocolate & odd macro lager notes in the nose.

Thick mouthfeel.

Bitter dirt, mild banana & faint milk chocolate flavors up front; macro lager yeast & astringent booze heat notes on the finish.

A bizarre, unpleasant monstrosity. Gross.

Evil Twin Brewing "Even More Jesus"
1 Pint can, seemingly contract brewed @ Two Roads Brewing Co. in Stanford, CT and coded "BATCH #027 18:06"
$4.49 @ Total Wine & More, Cherry Hill, NJ

Notes via stream of consciousness: It's blacker than oil pouring from the can. The head is a dark tan, and maybe even brown, but surprisingly lighter than I'd expect. The body is completely opaque. The aroma is oddly limited as well, I's think with a beer this dark it'd be screaming at you but it's not. I'm finding baker's chocolate and black licorice. OK, moving on, the flavor also has a black licorice note to it. It's herbal, and I guess with the dark malt that creates the licorice note. I'm not sure I like it. That's not to say it's bad, just that I don't care for it. I am surprised it's not a little richer though, and basically one-sided. Yeah, that might be enough Jesus for me unless it opens up once it warms a bit... ... ... ... OK, so 5 minutes later, let me try it again... well it smells the same... ahh, and I think there is more chocolate to it, and some additional sugar, including raw sugar,molasses, and some medium caramel. It's opened up but it still seems less complex than one might expect of an Imperial stout. It's well-brewed, I'll give it that, but not very well constructed in my opinion. It's all about intensity, and lacks the finesse of a great beer. Oh well, at least the bitterness level is right and there are no fermentation flaws. The alcohol doesn't show any more than it should, which is just to let you know it's there. How strong is this? 12%, that's even stronger than I thought it would be. In the mouth it's distinctly full bodied and oily-smooth; no complaints there. Looking back, the head retention was good, even very good, but there wasn't much lacing left behind. Overall I understand why people are drawn to this, and I do think it makes a good cigar beer or evening reading beer, but I doubt I'd pull it out as a standard wanna-have-a-strong-stout beer.

I wasn't going to pick this beer up, sadly, because the can looked cheesy - despite what Beeradvocate said. I'm glad I did. It's excellent. Great classic tasting stout. Nothing incredibly special, but everything tastes right. What every stout should (at least) strive for. To me, it symbolizes the stout benchmark. It can be, and is exceeded, but damn it's good.

This is a great, solid imperial stout ESPECIALLY at the price ($4/16oz. can). Right there with all of the other good non-tricked out, non-pastry stouts out there, but basically half the price or better. Love the thick, full feel. Definitely one to stock up on.

A beer to enjoy over the course of Jan. 1 2019.
I don't know if I've ever had a blacker beer. I saw no highlights beyond black when held to a light. Wonderfully dense dark head over that black body. Really nice pour.
The aroma was surprisingly tight, but I'll see if it opens up as it warms. As it does it's rich maltness with strong dark fruit.
Rich full flavor, but not as complex as I expected. A nice blending of richness, smoothness, malt sharpness, hoppy and dark malt bitterness and hits of sweetness. Full rich malt feel too. Much lingering on the finish. The fruit opens up in time.
This is solid but not exceptional.

It's Jesusmas today! Pint can served in my favorite Chimay chalice. Strikingly pitch black, with only tinges of brown when held up to the light. Like Jesus. Not much in the way of head formation, this is more of an oil slick. Also like Jesus. Aroma is roasty and brings the smell of molasses. Flavor is grainy and burnt -- conveying the contours of blackened and roasted malt to my tongue. I can almost feel the gritty barley on my tongue. There's some unsweetened cocoa in the flavor, but this beer primary raison d'être is to showcase roasted barley for Imperial Stout lovers like myself. This is our gift.

Over rated in my opinion. Has an off metallic taste. Drank after six-point 4-beans. Tasted nasty
