12oz bottle. Served in a snifter glass. Pours a thick dark black body, one finger offwhite head, short retention and not much in way of lacing. Smell is decadent chocolate fudge, brown sugar, caramel, light smoke, more sugar. Sweet. Flavour pretty much follows along these lines. Lots of sugar, definitely a low attenuation beer. Caramel, brown sugar, chocolate, light smoke, a bit of roasty coffee. Pretty much par for the course from Evil Twin. Mouthfeel is medium fuller bodied, slightly sticky, lingering sugary sweetness on the backend. Solid imperial stout that does it in a pinch when you're really trying to finish off that little last bit of Insulin before you can go to the pharmacy and get a refill.

Moderate to vigorous pour yields a one inch tan head over a dark brown, almost black, body with some lacing. Nose of roasted malts, roasted coffee, espresso, and some chocolate. Taste mirrors nose nicely with a bit more of the chocolate coming forward. Nice feel and overall, a very good offering which gets better as it warms. Cheers!

L: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a dark brown / black color and an opaque consistency. There was a small amount of creamy, tan-colored head that quickly dissipated. Decent lacing.

S: A pretty good, but not great, aroma of chocolate, roasted malt, coffee, and dark fruit.

T: Tasted of a moderate amount of coffee, some roasted malt notes, a good amount of dark fruit (plums, raisins), a light grassy quality, dark chocolate, and caramel. A decent enough flavor, but it seemed oddly subdued in some ways. Nonetheless, it's still pretty tasty.

F: A fair amount of carbonation with a smooth finish. Medium-bodied.

O: For the most part this is a drinkable beer. It has its flaws, but is still worth a try.

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.
