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!

Bomber. From Mikkeller shop. In Teku glass. Reading Intro to Python Ch18, then playing Avernum 4. Lots of chocolate. Alcohol more noticeable than desiderable, making it oversweet, a bit metallic and causing a bit of headache. Thin feel

L: Pitch Black, with a dark khaki to latte colored head that sticks around, and heavy, beautiful lacing.
S: coffee notes, dark chocolate, and some dark, dried fruits.
T: Bitter chocolate, coffee, carmelized sugar
F: Rich, almost to a fault. Smooth and pleasant.
Overall, an excellent stout. Well balanced, rich, dark, not too sweet. Almost perfect.

This is an excellent stout, and I can tell how well balanced and nicely complex it is. However, it is a little bit too much for me. This is a motor oil type of beer. People who like heavy stouts will love it though.

Look: very black, thick, thin mocca colored head

Aroma: toasted malts, dark chocolate, coffee.

Taste: Toasted raisin bread, dark chocolate, and lots of coffee.

Feel: It's full bodied, thick and not easy drinking.

Wow, this is thick beer! It has a menacing dark color that blocks all traces of light. Poured a 2018 fresh pint, cooled, into a wide tulip glass. Aggressive pour yields a huge mocha bubbly head that fades to a tiny persistent ring. Nose is espresso, 80% dark chocolate. First sips follow the nose to a tee. So viscous, like a liquified chocolate bar dunked in frothy espresso. Alcohol is a tiny bit hot up front, but one can imagine that a light cellaring will mellow it in short shrift. In hindsight, I should not rate this in the summer months. It is a cold weather warm-me-up sipper if ever there was one. Very bold and heavy. I think I’ll re-rate this in a few months when I’m looking at two feet of snow on the hill. Until then, buy some to store!

This is a very thick beer. It pours like motor oil - pitch black. It has a 2 finger dark tan head. The head retention is quite good, and there is some lacing on the glass.
The nose is filled with really rich chocolate, coffee, and caramel. I also seem to get some raisin in the aroma.
Taste - After letting it warm up, I get a rich, deep, coffee flavor up front. It is complimented on the backside by the chocolate and raisin. The coffee does linger throughout, and really hits again later on, after the other flavors hit.
Really thick bodied. It really coats my throat all the way down, and doesn't let go. There's also a warm feeling from the alcohol that really compliments the thick body well. It's not a harsh alcohol feel, but more mellow, and warming.
I'm a believer in Even More Jesus. This is a very high class, world class beer, and I'm glad I finally got it.

Pours the darkest of darks, with an appropriately brown head. Bubbles are small, but plentiful. Aroma is brownies, coffee, leather, leather, and something sweet and boozy, perhaps bourbon. Taste is similar, with notes of bitter cacao, tobacco, espresso, and alcohol. Definitely some heat here, but at 12%, I'm not complaining. All things considered, it's really quite smooth. Enjoyed my can via a tulip glass, accompanying my breakfast, and it was quite nice.

batch 17? i think. the cans long gone. dumped this into my wannabe spiegelau glass like the impatient ass i am. a huge tan head crawled out of the black depth below and right over the top of the glass. guess i should wash the counter again. head lasted forever and left quite a bit of lacing, weird for such a heavy stout but great lookin. after it sat for a bit, so i could wash away my mistakes, i leaned in and got a whiff of a booze soaked piece of fudge, some coffee and almost wine-like dark fruits. lot of heat. first drink of the looming black glass. smooth chocolate, sugar and roasted malt/coffee flavors, fruits come in after a few more drinks. heat came out and slapped me the moment i took a breath after drinking. finishes dry. not groundbreaking but i'll be back for more jesus.

Deepest possible black color with a thin thick brown color with a medium retention.
Delicious aroma with notes of dark chocolate, plums, chocolate fudge brownie, coffee, port wine and muscovado sugar.
Original flavor with notes of cocoa, sprinkles of charcoal, expresso coffee, a myriad of dark fruits, some vinous essence, licorice, clear muscovado sugar, tobacco, new world hops, vanilla and oak. Dry aftertaste with a medium hidden bitterness and some roasted notes. Bittersweet finish.
Velvety full body with carbonation with the tiniest bubbles. Alcohol of 12% is superbly well hidden.
Fantastic Imperial Stout with superior complexity and harmony. This is bold without any noise. Recommended.

We found that this beer tastes better out of the glass, which is counter intuitive to the style of beer that it is.

Picked up a Batch #21 single from the Craft Beer Hop Stop 6-21-18 for $4.99. No canning date.

Beer poured dark brown with a near perfect nitro like black head that is leaving lacing behind.

Nose is cocoa with some sweet alcohol.

Taste is fudge forward with some bitter coffee in the background. Sweet and boozy but hopped enough to prevent a cloying finish.

Mouthfeel is full bodied and very smooth.

Overall an interesting and good beer, fun to try, and the price is super reasonable! Look forward to trying the variants that await in the beer fridge!
