Appearance is a standard stout-dark, not much going on in the way of foam or lacing, a little thinning on the edges. It's great where it counts, though, in smell and taste: roasty and sweet with notes of chocolate and a mildly bitter malty finish. A little thin, but possesses a good alcohol kick. Very enjoyable.

A- Incredibly motor oil midnight black pour from the 12oz bottle into my glass. A thick and creamy dark mocha cap forms to about an inch high top the brew with great retention. Thick blankets of lace cascade down the glass after each sip.

S- Roasty is the first and most important word that comes to mind in this aroma. Roasted barley runs the show with chocolate, espresso, ashy and burnt grain notes big time. Dark fruity brandy, vanilla sweets, overly toasted nuts, cocoa nibs and some dark wine fruitiness.

T- For my palate, the barrel comes out with some major intensity here. Wet, old wood with the dark fruity brandy and very vinous, tannic notes all over the taste buds. The oak is especially strong and it competes with the roasted grains for the forefront. Almost a bit too much of the barrel to be honest. Cocoa powder, espresso beans, burnt sugars, burnt nuts, ash, roasted barley, caramel, vanilla sweets, blackstrap molasses, apples, dark wine, licorice and anise come to mind.

MF- Very thick body with an incredibly creamy texture and a definite slickness. The carbonation is at a medium level and comes off as subtle but makes everything super smooth.

Very smooth and somewhat easy going for a 12% Brandy Barrel RIS. The barrel is a bit much in the flavor as wet wood, oak and tannic properties of the brandy vessel really, really compete with the roasted grains to be the star. At the same time, the barrel tastes really good and that must be appreciated.

330mL bottle from Sprayberry Bottle Shop (Marietta, GA). 10.99. No discernible bottling date. Served in a Barrel and Barley teku.

Pours oil black with a finger and a half of deep mocha froth. The head fades to some wispy surface swirls and a full necklace. Only a few small scales of lace remain on the glass.

Roasty, boozey aromas of cocoa, brandy, wet wood, cooked sugar and some piney, earthy root.

Flavors include brandy-filled dark chocolates, toasted oak, burnt coffee, molasses, pine bark, apple skins, charred caramel and a few swift kicks of booze. Particularly as this nears room temperature the flavors mix beautifully.

Full, rich, smooth creamy body with soft carbonation. Burnt apples, dark chocolate and earthy oak play on the palate in the long, roasty aftertaste.

Yet another big, bold, tasty stout added to Evil Twin's already impressive repertoire. Aún Más A Jesús strikes a great balance of base stout and barrel. As with many of their offerings the price keeps me from buying much but certainly no regrets on purchasing this bottle.

Good density on the pour, with trademark brandy sweetness highly apparent on the nose. Bouquet is the best thing about this beer, which isn't necessarily a negative. Definitely get the base stout profile coming through, with a medium-firm middle. Coffee not as dominant in this iteration. Well played.

Looks smells and feels stellar but taste is all burnt roast and nothing like the evil twin jesus line.

12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter. Pitch black and heavy with 2 fingers of thick, fluffy, khaki head that maintains a nice collar.

I was quite impressed by this one. No , it's not the most complex stout, as it focused heavily on rich roasty dark malt, but it does that very well. Captures those extremely dark roasty notes without much bitterness/charred/burnt flavor. So it trends to the sweeter side but that's ok with me. A hint of bittersweet dark chocolate gives it a touch of balance. Mouthfeel is incredibly creamy and silky smooth. Drinkability is unbelievable for a 12% stout. Wouldn't hesitate to down another one of these.

Pours inky with little head or carbonation. Aroma has roasted malt, cocoa & a little vanilla. Very smooth for such a heavy stout, creamy mouthfeel, lots of bitter chocolate malt, a little dark roast coffee (especially on the semi-bitter end)...doesn't try to reinvent the wheel, very solid straight-to-the-point beer.
