look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Inky dark pour... no significant head or lacing. Pours pretty much still.

S: Rich and roasty... chocolate and fudge and coffee.

T/F: Follows the nose. Rich and decadent... dark chocolate, burned sugars, licorice, chicory, and espresso. A nice mix of bitter and sweet. Tobacco and molasses. Thick and sticky on the tongue... very light carbonation. Smooth. Warming and boozy. ABV is present but not overwhelming.

O: An outstanding big chocolatey/roasty Imperial Stout. One to seek out.

Served in a snifter glass from the bottle.

Appearance: Thick black body with medium bubbles and a heavy dark tan head rising roughly half a finger's length. Head drops before first sip with eben lacing and no stickiness to the glass.

Smell: You feel coffee beans with hints of brown sugar. Deep aroma which might mess with addiction.

Taste: Complex and slightly sweet but yet it comes off heavily malty. Smooth espresso with a dose of dry hops which will confuse most folk after two sips.

Mouth: Sticky brew and comes off a touch chewy with a chocolate yet bitter finish. Carbonation medium and body is super full.

Overall: Nice pick up, the spanish version of Even More Jesus still packs a punch and just edges it's American counterpart. Granted I get more bang for my buck on the american version but still worth grabbing a bottle if you love imperial stouts. Salud!

i have been seeing this around for years and finally got a chance to have it, on draft no less! its an enormous beer, like all of these in this series, just colossal stouts. this is shiny and obsidian black, as dark as they come, with a short but dense tan head on it from the tap and as much black malt character as i have known in any beer really, its ashy and burnt tasting, i get the barrel char thing without any barrel here, smoke and charcoal and all of it, almost like an extinguished cigar in my mouth, but its appealing at the same time that its absurd and intense, seemingly for the sake of it. some caramel sweetness from the malt a little earlier on balances it some, and hints of black licorice and good espresso to give it some nuance aside from the intensely dark and bitter barley in here. the booziness is high too, which exacerbates all of this, and the body is as thick as taffy, this is gigantic and intimidating, but the flavors really do work well. some of the variants of this make sense, brandy barrels to sweeten it up and round it out, chili pepper to give some heat to the darkness, but on its own its pretty interesting as well, just something that is hard to drink much of. a neat expression of the darkest side of grain in brewing, for how little of it i actually want to consume, i like and respect it a great deal.

Pours pitch black color with a 1+ finger tan to brown colored foamy head that was full of tiny bubbles, dissipating very slowly and leaving really nice spotty lacing that clings to the side after each sip, leaving islands of scattered foam.

Smells of dark chocolate, burnt coffee grinds, molasses, brown sugar, light soy sauce, fudge, cocoa, espresso, hints of dark fruit, smoked malts and char or fire burnt wood. The sweetness is balanced by the roasty malts and ash, which brings a lot of chocolate variants to the nose. Rich and nice to inhale.

Tastes like it smells with rich dark chocolate, burnt coffee grinds, milk chocolate, molasses, brown sugar, light soy sauce, toffee, hot fudge, cocoa, espresso, Hershey's chocolate syrup, roasted grains/malt, ash, smoked malts, char or campfire burnt wood. There's a hint of piney hops and trailing dark fruit, but this is basically a complex arrangement of chocolate and roasted malts. Little to no hop balance, but the brew is delicious so it works.

Mouthfeel is thick like soup with a slight bitterness, smoky aspects and tasty chocolate and coffee notes that slide down easy since the carbonation is very mellow and the feel is creamy and smooth with some texture in the mix. Add in the fact that this completely hides the 12% ABV and to me this is how an imperial stout should drink.

Going to España in July to run with the bulls and hope this brew will be available there as it was very smooth and tasty.

L -- Pours a very dark black viscous body with a one-finger dark brown head produced with moderately aerated poor. Good retention and excellent lacing. Some alcohol legs as well.
S -- Smoke, molasses, brown sugar, burnt honey, bourbon, oak, fudge, coffee ice cream, char
T -- Rich fudge, ash, unripe stone fruit, dark roast coffee, herbal bitters. Quite rich and biting
F -- Wonderfully soft, smooth, and fluffy mouthfeel that jumps off the palate. Big mouthfeel, minimal silky carb. A little too much charred bitterness on the finish, but still immensely drinkable for the ABV
O -- Unsure why this bottle is so expensive @ $12/12oz bottle, but it is good! Aun Mas Cafe Jesus is better
