Style: American Double / 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!

Looks awesome coming out of the can, like oil gushing from a Texan well. Pitch black oil with 3 fingers of beige, orange tinged head.

Smells fruity and floral, like molasses and caramel and tar and black liquorice. A hint of alcohol as well.

Brown sugar, molasses, tobacco, tar and caramel, floral notes, as well as fruity notes. Alcohol is well hidden.

Thick and oily body, with moderate, slightly foamy carbonation.

Got in Albany, NY, and drinking it in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Really good brew, awesome name!!! All round amazing.

Rich cacao, dark chocolate, roasty, umami, bitter chocolate, dark fruit

Similar to Marshal Zhukov with the savory rich character. Almost a light smokiness as well

16 OZ can; drank only a few weeks after it appeared on the shelves. This tasted a lot like North Coasts' Old Rasputin. Not bad, but I expected more out of a 12% ABV beer.

Pours a thin, oily black with a very faint lacing. Aroma was very off for me - there is some distant roasted malt, bitter baker's chocolate and wet oak, but there is a raw astringent smell bordering on the dreaded nail polish though it doesn't quite reach that level, but it certainly throws it off. Taste is a little better - very heavy on bitter cacao notes with some dark malt & a tad of vanilla - but still has a bit of wet cardboard / wood flavor. Maybe it was just a bad batch cause I have had the aun mas a Jesus - same recipe brewed at a different location - and it was noticeably different. Not awful but floats around mediocrity at best.

Pours jet black from a can, big frothy head that lingers and then coats the glass with a dark brown film.
Aroma is roasted malts, cocoa, coffee.
Taste is dominated by heavily roasted flavors.
Thick, chewy, oily texture just coats the mouth.
This is one fabulous beer, highly recommended.

On-tap served in a snifter at Hair of the Dog, Bangkok.

Pitch black in color with very rich fluffy tan head with excellent retention, it just slowly dissipates to everlasting foamy layer covering the surface and leaves numerous intricate and sticky lacing patch all along. Gorgeous.

In a nose, milk chocolate, coffee, cocoa, licorice, some roasted with subtle astringency, vanilla, caramel, toffee, charred nut, brown sugar, a little smoke, dark bread, hint of dark fruits, cherry, and a little alcohol trail.

Boom, the palate instantly soaks with generous dose of sweet/milky/creamy chocolate, espresso, mocha, vanilla, toffee, caramel, nut, licorice, and brown sugar. It is quite sweet overall with a bit leverage by roasted and burnt profile as well as suggestion of dark fruits and cherry. Subtle sweet and warm alcohol at the end together with all those chocolate, coffee, and roasted malt flavors persistently rolling in.

Full body, rich, with silky smooth mouthfeel and rather low carbonation but it is crisp enough to carry all the things well inside the palate, very dry finish.

Bold, rich, complex and very tasty chocolate/coffee Stout with complicated notes of dark fruits and cherry to get it more exciting.

Black, too much sweetness and roast for me. To be expected with the abv, but it's obscene. This is a thick brew for sure.

Deep brown with a chocolate brown head that rises up a half inch high and settles out slowly to a frothy cap. Low aroma of cocoa and marshmallow, a hint of coffee. Rich flavor of darkly roasted malt, a little ashy, mix of cocoa and espresso, some cola, and a hint of leather. Very rich and complex. Full and rich mouthfeel, finishes a bit tannic. Really good beer.

22oz bottle stored appropriately in the cellar for ~8 months. Dark black pour with a brown-corduroy-pants colored head that lasts. Aroma is charcoal, fudge, roasted malt. Taste is roasted malt, cherries, dark roast coffee grounds, charcoal and bitter chocolate. Thick and sweet and heavy on the palate. Huge beer in every way.

Reviewed as: American Double / Imperial Stout
Misc.: N/A

Went to this place with the intention of trying and reviewing two barrel-aged stouts. This was after eight 4-oz. tasters each at Craft Haus and Bad Beat. Decided on Even More Jesus and Bomb! over a Russian Imperial Stout from Joseph James. Did not know anything about this beer beforehand. Phone had died, so was doing this review on chicken scratch on basically a napkin. Also was a rushed review.

Poured a pitch black color with 2-to-3 fingers of frothy tan head when I got it. World-class layered lacing. Almost perfect retention. (Sight - 4.50)

Smelled mocha, chocolate milk, espresso, toffee, caramel, pecan and hazelnut. (Smell - 4.25)

Tasted mocha, espresso, milk chocolate, toffee, caramel, cocoa, pecan, maple walnut and hazelnut. (Taste - 4.00)

Medium body. Creamy texture. Soft carbonation. Long, smooth finish. (Feel - 4.50)

This was a very good imperial stout. Would love to try it again. (Overall - 4.25)
