4.94/5  rDev +16.2%
look: 5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Appearance – Pitch black with a dark chocolaty foamy head. The head dissipates slowly to a thin layer that leaves a very nice lacing on the glass.

Smell – A strong scent of coffee, chocolate, molasses, brownie, and heavy malt. Excellent.

Taste – Chocolate, coffee, molasses, and lots of malt. This is a strong tasting, very delicious stout. Awesome!

Mouthfeel – Creamy, somewhat syrupy, lightly carbonated, boozy, but smooth.

Drinkability – This is similar to Even More Jesus, except this is maltier, while the Even More Jesus has a sweet liquor type flavor (anise?) which is also very good. Both are excellent, but to me this is more of a “classic” stout. As of this review, this is my all time favorite beer!

I had this at the opening of Torst in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.

It pours in a pitch black color with a thin head with some lacing. The aroma is amazing, big bitter chocolate, slight coffee, just amazing and inviting.

The taste is gorgeous. It has a smooth bitter chocolate flavor with some coffee. The sweet and bitterness is balanced. It almost has a vanilla creaminess to it from the carbonation.

The mouthfeel is perfect. Big and around, but then it just finishes off so perfectly. I want to emphasized how good it is. It just cuts off the tongue after a smooth easy finish and you want to have more. That is dangerous for 12% ABV!

With some chocolate flavor or heavy stouts out there you get an aftertaste and the throat and mouth just close up to drinking more, this has none of that. There’s no sheen or finish on the tongue.

The comparison I can make is Alesmith Speedway Stout and maybe Brooklyn Chocolate Stout. However, unlike Speedway, it lacks a booziness. It just is smooth all around.

Balance, drinkability, mouthfeel, this beer just does it. The best Imperial Stout I have had next to Bourbon County Brand 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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

11.2oz bottle into a snifter

A: Pours absolutely pitch black with two fingers of medium brown, dense foam.

S: Dark, burnt malts dominate. I get tobacco, dark chocolate, burnt sugar, toffee, and prunes. This is a kitchen sink stout, but in a good way. I can only imagine how many specialty malts are in this one. As the beer warms, I get significant roast.

T: Dark chocolate and hop bitterness is supported by burnt sugars, toffee, and prunes. Balance between sweet and bitter is nearly perfect, this beer has many flavors on both sides that contribute to its complexity. Like the aroma, I get some roast as the beer warms, particularly in the aftertaste. Booze is evident, but it certainly doesn't seem 12%.

M: Medium to thick mouthfeel with appropriate carbonation.

O: This beer is extremely complex and extremely tasty. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I just wish it wasn't so expensive.

A side by side with Even More Jesus. Bitter dark chocolate. Kinda smoky. Pitch black, very thin head. Smells smoky. Very viscous. So good. I definitely prefer this one. Joy.

A - Very, very black pour. Thick with a dense brown head of one finger. Mild carbonation coming up. Spattering of lace and a mild retention. Pretty typical of the ABV.

S - Rich. Some booze, spirits, wood, milk chocolate, tobacco.

T - Way more roast, booze, chocolate, coffee very prevalent in the finish. Charred and roasty with big dark chocolate elements. Complex.

M - Nice big bitterness, super dry finish. Big thick body, mild carbonation.

O/D - Awesome. Super complex and flavourful. Assertive ABV can't be felt and seems pretty dangerous. Tasty, tasty stuff I would love to have again.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a Cigar City snifter at Tryst in Delray Beach, FL.

A- Pours a totally opaque black color with pretty much no head, just some light brown bubbles and a thin ring around the edge of the glass. Tiny specs of lacing stick to the glass.

S- Just all dark roast and some booze. There's also a faint hoppiness detected with some short, sharp sniffs.

T- Incredibly smooth considering the ABV with notes of milk chocolate, vanilla and molasses. Some char comes through as the beer warms. Definitely a sipper but it could be drunk quickly if one has a palate for high gravity stouts. The hops also start to show up as the temp rises.

M- Unexpectedly thin with low carbonation and a hefty body.

O- Very straightforward and certainly worth the $17 for an 11.2 oz bottle. Evil Twin's beers may be pricey, but damn are they great.

11.2 oz bottle at about fridge temp poured into a snifter.

Pours out an oily thick midnight black color with a thin dark mocha colored head. The head doesn't really last, only keeping a thin ring around the edge, but some thick dark brown legs are left all over the sides of the glass after a swirl. Keywords: black, oily, thick.

Deeply charred, bitter roast, bitter dark dark chocolate, some warm booziness, almost port or bourbon like in a way, that seems to blend in so nicely, really compliments the beer, hints of chocolate cake and as it warms hints of dark fruits.

A really nice tasting impy stout. Burnt bitter roasted malt, bitter dark chocolate, sweet burnt sugar, dark caramel, chocolate brownies. nuances of tobacco, dark fruits. A bit of a warming effect that works well with the beer, but in no way is it overly boozey. Finishes with a really nice deep bitter dark chocolate flavor that really lingers and almost tastes like German chocolate cake at times. As it warms the chocolate flavors are just amazing. What a complex stout!

Amazing mouthfeel. Thick, sweet, oily, viscous, smooth and velvety. A lower carbonation which obviously works well.

Maybe one of the best non barrel aged stouts I've had, so I can only imagine how heavenly this would be in a barrel. It's hard to pick a better one between this and imp. biscotti break, I would almost say this is better, because although I love the coffee in biscotti, I'm not a huge fan of the toasted malt notes, where this is straight deep dark burnt roasted malt. Buy this if you can, well worth the cash.

T - Smoked malts, espresso, dark grains, tobacco, roasted malt, vanilla bean , milk chocolate.

M - Viscous, low carbonation.

O - World class, I prefer this version to the Even More Jesus version.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Brooklyn chalice.

Appearance: Pours jet black with a moderate amount of bubbles. Solid finger of dark brown head that settles into a thin creamy layer.

Smell: A very rich and roasty dark malt driven aroma with a scent of dark chocolate, coffee, and dark fruit. Dark roasted barley malt with a scent of dark chocolate, coffee, burnt toast, biscuit, grains, yeast, and smoke. Sweet hints of molasses and cream. Dark fruit hints of raisin and plum. Subtle earthy hops. A really solid dark and bold aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a rich and roasty dark malt forward taste with notes of dark chocolate, coffee, and dark fruit. Dark roasted barley malt with notes of dark chocolate, coffee beans, toast, biscuit, smoke, grains, and yeast. Dark fruit undertones of raisin, fig, and plum. Sweet taste of molasses and cream. Light earthy hop notes in the background. A very good taste.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Rich, creamy, and syrupy. Alcohol heat is hidden well.

Overall: A very good take on an Imperial Stout. Big in your face roasty malt notes with some nice dark fruit underneath.

11.2oz bottle poured into a snifter, 2014 vintage

A- pours a pitch black and thick as motor oil with a one-finger dark tan head that reduces to a thin film, leaving plenty of lacing and alcohol legs behind as it settles

S- aroma stars with dark chocolate, mixing with a lactose sweetness. Notes of fudge, herbal coffee, roasted & charred malt, black licorice, short, port & a hint of caramel, Plenty of robust aromas coming out of the glass

T- robust blast of roasted, slightly charred malt hits the palate immediately, quickly followed by bitter dark chocolate, port wine, fig & prune, oak, and sweet toffee/caramel. The finish brings more bitter dark chocolate, along with black licorice and smoky char on the linger

M- thick and heavy body with low carbonation leads to a creamy mouthfeel that continues into a chewy, creamy finish. After a year of aging, the ABV is hidden brilliantly

O- another home run stout from ET. So complex, yet drinkable, and gets better as it warms

330 ml bottle into snifter, 2015 vintage bottling. Pours dense pitch black color with a small dense dark brown head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of huge dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, fudge, dark bread, molasses, licorice, raisin, prune, fig, leather, tobacco, wood smoke, light char, herbal, light pepper, and roast/smokey earthiness. Incredible aromas with fantastic complexity and balance of dark/roast/bready malt and moderate earthy hop notes; with great strength. Taste of huge dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, fudge, dark bread, molasses, licorice, raisin, prune, fig, leather, tobacco, wood smoke, light char, herbal, light pepper, and roast/smokey earthiness. Good amount of herbal/spicy/roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, fudge, dark bread, molasses, licorice, dark fruit, wood smoke, light char, and herbal/roasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity and balance with intense robustness of dark/roast/bready malt and moderate earthy hop flavors; with a great roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and extremely full bodied; with a very creamy, silky, slick, and fairly sticky/chalky mouthfeel that is insane. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a small warmth lingering after the finish. Overall this is a world class imperial stout as expected. All around incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt and moderate earthy hop flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the huge ABV. This is nearly identical to Even More Jesus as expected; but it seems to be stronger on earthy hop flavors and bitterness; which also seem to make it drier and smoother overall. An insanely amazing offering all around.

Super fudgy goodness, from the motor oil pour to the big smooth body, to the creamy chocolaty flavors. does not get overly sweet; rather a solid double stout.

Evil Twin is one bad mother-stout-maker. Like Even More Jesus, Biscotti, the other A Jesus beers, this one is rich and chewy. A slow roll of dark chocolate from the front end to the back end. A delicious stout that only grows in complexity as it warms to room temperature. Coffee notes, a dark roast, but all slathered in thick fudge-like chocolate.

11.2 ounce bottle. Served in a DFH snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with about a quarter inch tan head that fizzled away quickly. There's a good amount of lacing. Aroma is great, the brew smells like roasted malt, chocolate, molasses, and dark fruit. Taste is similar to the aroma, but there's also the addition of some vanilla, burnt/charred malt and some coffee. Nice mix of sweet and bitter flavors in this stout. Mouthfeel/body is full, it's thick and creamy with a moderate amount of carbonation. Pretty good stout, I wish it came in a bomber because the small bottle left me wanting more of this brew. $7.99 a bottle.

Poured into a Fremont small snifter. Pours pitch black with a thin brown head with good retention and light lacing. Aroma of toasted dark malt, mocha, mild dark chocolate, vanilla and a bit of coffee. Flavor is dark toasted malt with a hint of sweetness, peaty smoke, dark chocolate, dark dried fruit, finishing malty, slightly smoky with a light hop bitterness. Medium, nicely creamy body, good mouth feel. A very pleasant dark, toasty and mildly smoky imperial stout with great balance and so densely flavorful that the ABV is barely noticeable. Superb. Pricey, but rewarding. Evil Twin sure know how to pick its participating breweries. This Spanish one knows its chops.

As some folks believe that Jesus is black. If so, the fine folks over at Evil Twin show that black Jesus may not be enough- for those occasions, they bring us Aun Mas Jesus!

The limited Christmas time release pours with lighter carbonation than usual and causes an inky black appearance. A light swirl leaves tawny bronze legging on the glass, looking much like brandy. Casual bubbles climb to the rim of the snifter and form an espresso-like creme. Dainty in its foam stance, yet masculine in color and texture- its obvious that this is no ordinary stout.

A culmination of roast, sweet, and booze rise to the nose with a strong, succulent, and complex scent. Rich espresso is again reaffirmed, but unexpected elements of sherry, port, and merlot add a vinous and fruity set of aromas to the roast. Complementary notes of chocolate, walnut, and light smoke keep the waves of aromas coming.

The first sip of the stout curls onto the tongue and saturates the taste buds with savory sweetness of port wine, bittersweet chocolate, and seared toffee. Its lush taste is aided by vinous esters of red grape, dry sherry, and tannin-rich oak. Cherries, raisins, and plumb layer onto the roasty and winy taste and ensures new flavors with each sip. A forgiving finish of burnt embers bring on notions of smoke and wood extend deeply in the gullet and melds right into the next savory sip.

With its low carbonated creaminess, the beer seeps into the mouth, again like port wine and satisfies the need for both sweet and savory textures. Its oily coat clings to the mouth and draws out into a long bittersweet finish. Brandy-like alcohols ensure a spicy-warm aftertaste with mild wood bitterness.

"Even More Jesus" is a highly satisfying stout that's not for the faint of heart. It's an extremely complex ale but not complicated. It's both aggressive and forgiving, robust and soft, spicy and silky- it's everything you want in a beer named for Jesus, and maybe even more!

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.

Poured black with a dark brown head that disappears almost instantly. Smell is chocolate with roasted malt and you can get a hint of alcohol. Taste follows the nose with dark chocolate, roasted malt, and licorice. The alcohol is hidden pretty well but it becomes part of the aftertaste the warmer the beer gets. The mouthfeel is very thick, almost like drinking a shake. It works well with the amount of carbonation. This is a great Double stout by Evil Twin.

A- Black, ink black. Dark toffee mocha head which doesn’t last. Some lacing, not much. Little effervescence
S- chocolate, fudge, cafe espresso. Fudge is most prominent, no boozy smell present.
T- Again, fudge and espresso. Dark chocolate.
M- Mouth coating, Thick, velvety, Finishes nice & smooth.
O- Great easy drinking imperial stout. Lasted about 45 minutes and the flavors crept out over that time period. Would buy again, but at 10-14 bucks a bottle, hard to stomach (the price, that is).

appearance- Black in color, tan colored head, and pours about a half inch tall head.

aroma- Roasted coffee, roasted malts, milk chocolate, and dark fruit.

taste- Surprisingly leans on the sweeter side at first with milk chocolate and vanilla at first, but then coffee and roasted malts come in and balance things out. Finish leans more towards the coffee along with some chocolate and dark fruit sweetness. Alcohol presence is very low and barely noticeable at 12% abv.

feel- The feel is great on this one with a thick, chewy, and creamy texture.

overall- I was a little skeptical going into this considering I didn't like the bible belt prairie collab, but this takes even more jesus and knocks it up a peg. The coffee is great and not too bitter or roasty, and the chocolate is fudge like in taste and feel. In relation to other coffee stouts this above average, and this drinks more like a dessert beer than a coffee stout like FBS. This is a great beer, but given the insanely high price tag, I would not purchase this again. I was well worth the one try though, and if it were half the price I'd gladly buy this again.

T - Delicious. Tastes of burnt coffee, just the right amount of bitterness. Super balanced flavors with alcohol.

M - Full bodied, rich, creamy, fantastic mouth.

O - This is just outstanding, as I expected it to be. I will drink this again and again. If you like imperial stouts, don't miss this.

I had this second at our annual stout tasting -enjoyed chilled from the 1year old bottle in a glass.

The color is black opaque with medium tan head with tiny bubbles and no lace. The smell is strong with cocoa and moderately smoky malt aroma with slight yeast adding to the rich caramel aroma with low alcohol in the nose. The feel is great with big rich body and smooth feel with medium high sweetness and mild spice with gentle alcohol as it finishes semi-dry.

The taste is excellent with strong dark cocoa and toffee-mix with sweet roasted nutty flavor and mild caramel-like taste with a mild woody spicy quality mid palate with mild bitterness of dark roasted malt and hint of smoke with roasted flavor which is long with rich boozy intensity. Overall this is a very good Imperial stout with big malt complexity and rich roast with coffee in the taste even though there was none in the brewing process with lots of character and complexity easy to drink for such a high abv stout -this was my second favorite of the group of stouts we opened
