ook: Looks like a imp stout ought to. Very dark, nearly opaque. Some deep ruby highlights when held to light. Thick creamy mocha head.
smell: Rich, chocolate, roasty coffee fudge. Decadent and smoky.
taste: Rich decadent coffee, dark fruit, and cream with a slightly bitter finish.
overall: An extraordinary imp stout in a time of extraordinary imp stouts. Well done.

A - Pours pitch black with a dark toffee colored head that's creamy, thick, and sticky. Very, very, sticky foam lacing - cotton candy-like in appearance.

S - Dark bittersweet chocolate malt, coffee, toffee, char, and light smoke. Nice and bold overall.

T - Even better than the nose. Dark chocolate roast, some hints of chocolate fudge, coffee beans, char, smoke, some roasted toffee, leather, light tobacco, and a moderate lingering dark chocolate bitterness.

M - Full medium body without being too heavy or syrupy, lip smacking sticky.

O - Ranks right up there with the better stouts I've ever had. Nicely done.

A - Pours with one finger of deep, dark, orange-brown foam on top of a completely opaque, black body. The head settles very slowly and leaves nice lace on the glass.

S - Dark, sweet malt with notes of chocolate, espresso, and vanilla.

T - Thick, oily chocolate up front with notes of fudge and espresso. Some charred caramel and licorice in the middle, which leads into a finish of dark fruit, old leather, and smoky, spicy dark chocolate.

M - A thick, oily body, moderately low carbonation, and a surprisingly well balanced finish.

D - Very complex and flavorful, but also unusually balanced and drinkable for a beer of this strength. The rich, intense dark chocolate takes the lead but it is supported nicely by a range of sugar, spice, fruit, and even some woody notes. This is absolutely worth the price if you can find it.

Black and shiny with a few bubbles of dark tan froth. Smells of dark fruits, dark chocolate, and faint smoke. Tastes of dark chocolate, grain, gum, vanilla and dark fruits. There's plenty of chili and boozy heat through the finish and down the throat. Medium to heavy in body and viscous.

Fairly complex and hotter than most makes for a very interesting experience. One I would definitely like to repeat, but maybe not so often.

Drank from an 11.2 fl. oz. bottle purchased at Liquor World, Cambridge, MA
Served in a snifter

Spectacular appearance. The viscous, pitch black, ominous looking liquid was capped by tight, creamy, bubbly, two-finger tall, mocha-colored plume. Amazing for any beer, never mind one that clocks in at 12% ABV. Tons of drippy lacing along the glass. The crown slowly dropped to a thick, bubbly mass of froth.

The aroma was solid. Some smoky, peaty notes were a bit of a surprise initially. Tons of deep, dark, charred malts. Quite ashy. Slight chalky yeast presence. Perhaps I had Scotch on my mind, but I also seemed to pick up some salty notes as well. Good dose of bakers chocolate. This reminded me a bit of burnt brownies. As the beer warmed, the nose turned sweeter. Brown sugar and raisins were noticeable.

Super roasty, charred malts dominated the flavor profile as well. Smoky. Peat smoked malts were apparent. Slightly salty. Hints of day-old espresso in the center. Somewhat woody as well. The finish was bitter and dry with subtle earthy hop notes. Like the nose, the flavor profile turned sweeter with time. Dark fruits were noticeable. Quite raisiny with a touch of brown sugar as well. Although not nearly as smoky or as peaty, I definitely saw similarities between this and Auld Yin, Evil Twin's Scotch barrel-aged imperial stout.

The mouthfeel was moderately thick and slick. Smooth on the palate with an ultra fine and mild carbonation. Almost a touch flat.

Flavor-wise, the most impressive aspect of Aún Más A Jesús was how well well it hid its high ABV. Although I can see many people liking this beer, it was far too ashy and bitter for my palate. Also, at $11 a bottle, there are numerous better options available.

A very nice beer. I don't think I like it as much as the cafe version, but that's just personal preference. This one pours just as viscous and inky black, with no head. The smell is all licorice, but the taste adds massive bitter chocolate and roasted notes. Silky in the mouth, but with a very long finish. Quite dry, very little sweetness here at all. A fine imperial stout indeed.

wasnt overly impressed with this one. yes, it looked sexy on the pour - great roasty notes of dark malts, coffee & chocolate on the nose. bitter espresso and dark malts on the palate. feel is a bit thinner than I would like for the style, and especially given the fact that the alcohol is a bit noticeable - slightly watery texture with an alcohol burn is enough to turn me off from an imperial stout... and in this case especially so, because i didnt get any sweet notes to provide balance. all and all I think this beer is a bit of a mess and although it looked and smelled nice, it doesnt hold a candlestick to the imperial stouts that i would consider top notch. not the first time ive been let down by an evil twin stout, starting to think these guys are highly over rated. I would avoid this one, despite the availability and shiny packing, its not worth it.

A: The beer is absolutely jet black in color and poured like the consistency of motor oil, eventually foaming a bit at the end to produce an eighth of a finger high mocha-colored head. This died down into delicate lacing covering the surface and also left a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: There are light to moderate aromas of dark chocolate malts in the nose along with some notes of coffee beans and hints of roasted malts.
T: The taste is similar to the smell but much more balanced and has a light amount of bitterness. Hints of burnt malts and licorice become evident as the beer warms up. Only slight traces of alcohol are perceptible.
M: It feels a bit shy of full-bodied on the palate and coats your mouth a bit; a low to moderate amount of carbonation is present. There are some slight hints of warming from the alcohol and dryness towards the finish.
O: This beer has a great balance between the malts and hops and hides its alcohol especially well considering the strength. It's quite bitter for such a strong stout, which negates any stickiness. As such, it is a very drinkable imperial stout.

Had this last night with Jeppe at the Max's Baltimore Beer Week event.

Just such a rich smooth smoky smell and flavor. Complex but never offputting.

In comparison to the Even More Jesus I would say this has a tiny bit more smoke flavor while the Even is a little bit smoother and slightly more vinous.

Definitely worth seeking out.
