Darkest and thickest stout I've had. This literally pours like motor oil. Get a burnt taste right off the bat, then small licorice and then roasted taste, dark chocolate with smokey and sugary flavors following. Glad this is sold in cans now, although it was a little tough to finish 16 oz solo. Real good stuff though.

It's been a while since I've reviewed an imperial stout. Decided this would be a good one to get started with again.

L: Dark, black like death in the glass. Two or three fingers of dark tan foam fills the glass immediately. Little to no lacing but this thing just looks amazing. Pours out of the can like motor oil

S: Chocolate, molasses, dark fruit, maybe some licorice, some smoke

T: First flavor is burnt malt then some vanilla and even a little fig. Hardly any booze in the taste of this and it's 12% so nice job masking.

F: Perfect - Not too thick but a little chewy. Also has a medium carbonation in the balance.

O: This beer is fantastic and rivals some of the best Imperial Stouts I've had. Highly recommended.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Used motor oil black with no head and obviously viscous as heck. Aromas of dark chocolate and molasses. Taste is at first delicious but quickly becomes overly sweet. Mouth feel is Full-bodied, uncarbonated, cloying. Overall, if I only had a 2-4 oz pour of this, I'd probably love it, but trying to kill a bomber or even a full pour would be impossible for me due to the sweetness and weight of this beer. Unfortunately, 3/4 of it went down the drain.

Pours like a black hole leaking 20W-50 motor oil. It's blacker than black, Spinal Tap black. Head starts medium brown and lightens a bit as it settles. Very fine lace. If a beer could look intimidating, surely it's this. This beer looks like what you serve when Henry Rollins or Chuck Norris comes by, and you don't want him to think you're a wimp.

Smells like malt, cocoa, licorice. So far it seems a lot like Ten Fidy. Which, of course, is high praise. Maybe this could be subtitled "twelve-nuthin."

Taste is sweet, intense, licorice, molasses, hints of honey or corn syrup, more licorice. Damn, it's just a bit too sweet for me to actually enjoy. Pushed it just a bit too far. But, for me, no.

Mouthfeel is rich, awesome. Perfect carbonation, fine, not overdone.

Long finish, perfectly consistent, actually rather subtle considering the rest of the beer.

There's some good stuff in here, but it's just too damned sweet. I tried to like it, tried to convince myself, but no: A few sips and it goes in the sink.

Honestly, if you like Imperial Stouts, this brew is in the world class arena. I've drank a ton of excellent imperial stouts.. NONE were more intense, thick, chewy and substansial than this one.. Amazing fudge, char, coffee and a perfect bit of sugary sweetness. It's rare that malts were brewed so (nearly) perfectly..

Even More Jesus is World Class.. And then some.. Magnificent!...

Pours a pitch fuckin' black color. The head is a finger high and dark tan in shade. Retention is fabulous, aided by the dense, creamy texture. It leaves almost a solid wall of lacing on the glass, too.

This smells like roasted heaven. The first whiff of the aroma leads to a ton of dark chocolate, but the roasted malts build as this opens up. There are additional touches of piny hops, smoke, espresso, and really dark caramel. I think some stone fruit esters would send this excellent aroma way over the top, but it smells killer regardless.

The taste of the beer opens up with plenty of smoke. Dark chocolate and heavily caramelized sugar rounds out the middle, leading to an espresso-laden crescendo. Hops also close the palate fairly assertively, blending very well with the umami and roast flavors. This seems to feature a few shouty yet balanced notes, with additional subtleties lying in the background. All in all, a textbook example of a Scandinavian-style imperial stout.

My mind boggles how such a thick, creamy beer can be so agile on the palate. The hops and roasted malts are earning their keep when it comes to this stout's texture. Carbonation is fairly gentle, being obscured by the fullness.

This shit's like Storm King on steroids. Of course, it's still remarkably easygoing for its gravity - to the point of being dangerous, in fact! Now that this is in cans - and somewhat reasonably priced - this will become a go-to for me in the future.

4.27/5: Well, it's not quite as good as Jesus...but it isn't far off, either

A thick chocolate velvet ness that sticks on ones palate like glue op paper. With just a touch of smokey-ness to make it interesting. Man what a brilliant beer and that without any barrel aging.

Somehow even more jesus from evil twin - Big fan of this here guys. Read up;

L: Beautiful can. Has me believing. What year is this?? Upon a confident pour, the head was a raging, dark, deep, turbulent brown universe, settling eventually into a noble fizzy halo round the glass for the entirety of the drink. Fucking nice, if you’ll pardonnez le frenche. The strangest, faintest lacings left on high. Liquid is jet black.
S: Mocha. I smell mocha. I also smell charcoal, a sort of char, woodsmoke. Definitely alcohol. I’m interested.
T: Liquid leather. A deep, creeping fruit emerges in and after the sip. But before this, at the front of the sip, is baker's chocolate, a railroad sort of metallic taste, an presence of the finest fresh-roasted coffee beans, and a sooty active carbonation, all kick off the flavors in a very heavy, wet, nimble way. More to come on that later. After a time, literally strawberries emerge. Mango. Guava, a very distant, exotic hop. In the end come up again rustic, smokey tones that play out slowly. Lingers exquisitely. Starts like the spark of a match, rides like the flame of a candle, then sets like the sun. FINE AS WINE. Haha, finer! A true stout.
F: F: Its viscosity is over-hyped! Just saying what I feel about what I got. Seen thicker from such breweries as OB’s, SA’s, even san diego’s Stone! But stop right there, and please allow me to say that this thing’s viscosity is very high. It is thick, frothy, oily. It’s about level with perhaps St George’s Cavatica in terms of thickness and some other ways. Its mouthfeel is an absolute smorgasbord, with smooth, ashy, oil-slicky, nearly lager-y exhibition. In this respect, it has a sort of expanding feel on the mouth, it feels like a marshmellow! I know, it’s a lot to sip on, but its after-effects feel especially amazing; just don’t underestimate the excellent post-sip experience on the palate!

O: Evil Twin is up to some sssssshhhthtufffff here… this one got to me, and, to me, proved it. What are you up to, my Evil Twin…

Keep cherishing, keep drinking, keep livin’. Thanks for reading! Check back soon.
