by RyanK252 from California

Cellared bottle of unknown age poured into a Bell's Brewery snifter

A: Pours basically black with a frothy dark chocolate brown head that settles to a thin layer and leaves a little light lacing.

S: Roasty, light char, rich chocolate, fudge, a bit earthy, and some toffee and burnt sugar sweetness.

T: Roasted malt, a little char, chocolate fudge, a hint of coffee, earthy, faint herbal pine, and a little toffee and burnt sugar sweetness.

M: Full body, moderate carbonation, % is very well hidden.

O: I've had this bottle for who knows how long, finally got around to just cracking it. Really solid straight forward imperial stout, holds its weight impressively well.

A thick black pour, if it wasn't for the small dark brown head and a nicely laced glass I might have mistaken it for dirty motor oil. Snot locker gets ash, coffee, vanilla and licorice. Buds get all that but the coffee and licorice are at the forefront. Body is thick'n oily, a really nice sipper. I'm assuming that this is the Spanish version of Even More Jesus, it's as good as the American version and one of the best American imperial stouts I've had.

On tap at Growler Run in Oregon City.

The beer pours the expected blackish brown color with good head retention and lacing. Getting a lot of roasty aroma on the nose, along with some light coffee, licorice and vanilla. The flavor profile replicates the nose pretty closely in this moderately sweet stout, but with some nice dark chocolate flavor as well. Mouthfeel is a bit thin for the abv., but with a fairly long, roasty dry finish. Alcohol is very well integrated into the flavor profile. I would not have guessed this is a 12% abv. beer.

By today's standards, this is a pretty lackluster effort I think. It's a decent glass of stout, but there's nothing memorable or distinctive about it. This is not a beer I would order again.

11.2oz undated can poured into a Spiegelau stout glass at just above fridge temp 12% ABV. The beer pours dense very dark brown with chocolate tan colored head. The head recedes to a thin ring and single layer of bubbles. The aroma is char, dark chocolate and ethanol. The taste is semisweet ashy, charred malt with a hint of caramel and chocolate. Moderate bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium plus bodied with average carbonation and a mostly dry finish. Overall, ok. Nothing special, but the can was purchased on closeout, so no idea how old.

Brewed at Companyia Cervesera Ltd., Catalunya, Spain. An aged bottle. At least five years old but well cellared. 12% ABV. Poured into a small-stemmed tulip. A faint “psth” of gas when opened this one. A full pour.

This beer held up very well after 5+ years in the cellar/fridge. A pleasant drink. Glad I popped it open when I did. 4.25

A – Pours black, opaque, a bit viscous, with a half-finger dark mocha brown head that dissipated quickly to almost nothing. Shows good alcohol viscosity. Very minor lacing. 4.0

S – Aromas of dark and milk chocolate, roasted malts, no burnt or bitter aromas, but aroma was generally lacking (is this due to the aging?). 4.0

T – Mocha, dark chocolate, roasted to burnt malts, faint sweetness, a little cardboard (which is maybe a result of the zero carbonation. 4.25

MF – Medium heavy bodied with a semi-dry finish. Zero carbonation resulting in no finishing carbonation bite. Smooth and warming. 4.25

12oz bottle

Glugs out pitch-black, a very slight ruby ring of light penetrates the outer edge. But barely. Smells like chocolate cake, a bitter dark chocolate cake. Taste is very rich and decadent: no alcohol in sight, not even in the feel (I can feel it in my liver maybe), just overly sweet choco-lined, hop-tinged malt-bomb. Slick and sweet and slight spice on the tongue.

Supurb big stout. 12% and it drinks like an EdmundFitzgerald

Black, syrupy, virtually no head. Smells a bit soy-like. Smooth mouthfeel, good thickness. Taste is definitely some soy, from the age? Bit of roast, plenty of licorice. Easy to drink, quite enjoyable, but not as crazy or adjuncty as most ET, I guess.

Not "outstanding" in any way. One dimensional, far too bitter. Once again Beer Advocate goes for alcohol, rather than taste, aroma, or flavor. It lacks all of those.

L - Pitch, opaque black - comes out of the can like motor oil - with a very minute dark tan head that dissipates quickly leaving behind no real lacing to speak of.
S - A lot of rich fudge and roasted malts on the nose.
T - Follows the nose: tons of rich, dark fudge and roasted/toasted malts throughout. Some toffee and smoke.
F - Full bodied with a moderate amount of lacing. Smooth and creamy.
O - A pretty standard, but well executed imperial stout.

Brewed in Barcelona, Spain. 11.2 ounce bottle. More rich and dark as night beer. No head. Smells like alcoholic chocolate cake or cocoa and a hint of smoke. The taste is smokey and bittersweet chocolate. No alcohol. Another smooth as silk mouthfeel. The hint of bitterness on the back end is righteous. Overall a fine American Imperial Stout that would make an awesome dessert beer paired with anything chocolate.

330 ml bottle - Imperial Stout Aged on Brandy Barrels. no date

pours jet black, thick like used motor oil - dark brown colored head, that fades to a thin ring around the edge of the glass. but that ring stays to the bottom of the glass. aroma of bitter espresso, black cherry, a bit boozy, I get the brandy. similar flavors in the taste, a bit sweet, a touch acidic, quite roasty. thick, viscous, lower carbonation.

overall pretty good - but doesn't quite meet my expectations given the $8 price tag.

I have no idea why this beer suddenly jumped off the shelf at me after having passed it by 33 times, but hey. 12 oz. bottle.

Black, with an imperceptible amount of visible carbonation. The nose brings a small Caribou three doors down, a snifter of brandy within arm’s reach, & flecks of chocolate & char.

Aun Mas A Jesus is a bit store brand. Yes, there are some deep sweet malts, a nice roast, & like the nose, a bit of char that burns into smoke, but it’s all rather routine. Fingernail of chocolate, growing bitterness, but the finish on this is all cold, ice-smooth brandy. Dry, almost harsh, as the grainy bitterness fights with the brandy for supremacy, & the brandy comes out on the bottom.

Ultimately this doesn’t check many boxes for me, except for the spot-on use of the brandy barrels. Overall a good, solid beer in a field crowded with them.

12oz can. Poured out an opaque, jet-black color with a small, light brown head of foam. It smelled smoky with roasted coffee, chocolate and toffee. Strong roasted coffee taste with dark chocolate, toffee and roasted malt.

11.2oz bottle. Brewed in Barcelona, Spain, at Cervesa del Montseny. No dating information found.
Black, opaque colored body. Thin cap upon pouring but this disappears and leaves some surface swirls from rising bubbles and a ring. Leaves a scattered pattern of spots for lacing.
Aroma is dark roasted malts and molasses.
Taste is solid with dark roasted malts, molasses, dark strong coffee, chocolate, and hints of tobacco/leather.
Medium mouth feel. Carbonation is lower in expression but supportive. Finish is dry and chalky.
This is a straight forward, punch in the face type higher ABV% stout without adjuncts. Fudgy, and free from sweetness.

Pours nearly black with a thin ring of mocha foam in lieu of a proper head. Aroma smells of brownies and hot cocoa with hints of caramel, molasses, and herbal hops.

The taste is surprisingly mellow at first blush, featuring a melange of roasted malt, molasses, coffee, and chocolate, before finishing with rumors of earthy hops and burnt ends. Alcohol is fantastically well concealed for its weight. Medium body and negligible carbonation make for a smooth, silky slick mouthfeel that reinforces its drinkability.

Overall, this might be the best Jesus variant I've had thus far. While it lacks the slash and burn bombast of the original, that same mellowness and nuance bolsters its intrigue and palatability.

Very nice imperial stout - a little less coffee and more dark stone fruit and alcohol flavors compared to the Aún Más Café Jesús version. Pours a deep dark black color with minimal head or lacing. Smells of dark chocolate, dark roast coffee and caramel. Taste follows the nose, along with raisin, plum, vanilla, malt, brown sugar and molasses. The coffee taste isn’t as strong as the Aún Más Café Jesús brew. Smooth, slightly creamy, thick mouthfeel with just enough carbonation. The high ABV is a little more noticeable even before the beer warms for a few minutes.
