Bottle from Premier Gourmet. Incredible imperial stout. The aroma is mostly chocolate malty and it is irresistible. Black fudge appearance, with 1/4" retained head. Smooth as silk, long roast chocolate finish. Great drinkability. Alcohol well hidden. Excellent.

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.

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!

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

Appearance: Pours dark as motor oil, with the head the color of milk coffee; very leggy but not much lacing to show for it

Smell: Dark chocolate and coffee tones dominate, with a smoky, roasted Anaheim pepper edge

Taste: The roasted Anaheim pepper tones grow in prominence in the flavor profile, bringing an interesting counterpoint to the chocolate and coffee flavors; licorice sweetness appears on the back end to add further balance

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with low to moderate carbonation; some warmth in the gullet

Overall: I really enjoyed the unusual flavor profile that the smoked pepper tones bring here; having had quite a few stouts that bring the heat, this one's lack of burn brings the pepper flavor to the fore

Poured from the bottle into a goblet.

The beer pours a black color with a half finger of thick tan head. The head sticks around quite nicely while you drink this one. The smell is full of intense roasted malt with a dark fruit note underneath. There are some hops in the nose, but the roast definitely dominates. The intense roast carries over to the taste, which seems to be normal for Evil Twin stouts. The hops combine with the roast to create an intense bitterness. The chili heat shows up in the back end of the sip. The body is on the thick side with smooth, tingly carbonation. I liked this more than I remember liking the base beer. The peppers made this one more interesting. I'd have more if the situation arose.

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.

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.

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.

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

Pours a pitch black with a pinky of cocoa colored head. Good lacing, nice viscosity, plus alright head retention

S: Chocolate, raisins & some booze & vanilla at the end

T: Chocolate, some red pepper, very dry up front. Dark chocolate, a little pepper heat, dryness & a faint bit of coffee

MF: Medium body, minimal carbonation

A good take on the style, but too similar to Bomb! I'd just soon drink that since it's cheaper & better. Glad I got to try it!

A: Pours an opaque jet black in color with some very dark brown at the edges when held up to the light and slightly thick looking (like oil). The beer has an eight of a finger tall very dark mocha head that quickly fades to a small patch of extremely thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of dark roasted malts, chocolate malts, and coffee.

T: Moderate to strong flavors of dark roasted malts with some notes of chocolate and coffee. There are some lighter notes of burnt malts and licorice. Some light flavors of alcohol. Light to moderate amounts of bitterness that lingers briefly.

M: Just shy of full bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly creamy and coats your mouth with some light alcohol heat and dryness in the finish.

O: This is a very enjoyable really big stout which is something I very much enjoy - there are wonderful flavors and aromas with good complexity. Also, this beer is a righteous looking stout - dark and thick. The flavors are well balanced and it goes down rather easily for as big as it is...

Poured from an 11.2 oz bottle into my Devil's Backbone glass. Pretty close to black in color with a thin tan film barely covering the top. Decent lacing as I drank it.

Aroma has a nice mix of milk chocolate and roasted malts. Little bit of dark frit to it as well as a bit of a leathery presence. Pretty smooth and flavorful aroma overall and pretty nice for the style.

The taste shows more of the milk chocolate flavor up front while the finish has more of the roasted malts and smoky flavors coming out. The finish is dry with some resiny hop bitterness to it. There is some dark fruits to it as well. It comes together pretty nicely.

The mouthfeel is on the heavier side with low carbonation. Overall, it was a pretty solid beer of the style all around. The flavors all came together pretty well. It was bold, flavorful and a pretty nice beer to sip on this evening.

Bottle split with my wife tonight. Served alongside the coffee version.

The beer is near black. Opaque and viscous. Small, oily beige head in a filmy layer rests atop the beer. The aroma is huge. Didn't even need to get my nose near the glass. Chocolate and dark roast initially, followed by vanilla and a touch of alcohol. What little alcohol there was in the nose is virtually nonexistent in the flavor. Masterfully hidden. Big and bold stout. Rich and robust. A slow sipper one could easily drink too quickly. A beer I would thoroughly enjoy having again and one I'll be looking for in the future.

330 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Inky black. Not much head. Thin mocha collar. Glass staining. Great body.

Smell - Molasses and bucket of black patent malt. Definite alcohol presence. Slightly fruity.

Taste - Sweet and boozy up front. Less roast. More caramel. Sharp alcohol bite in the finish. Some chocolate and alcohol blended together in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Boozy. Medium bodied. Slightly acidic.

Overall - I remember enjoying Even More Jesus a lot more than this. Missing some of the roast I remember.

Poured from the bottle into a large snifter glass.

Deep thick and two finger tall very dark rich mocha brown head on top from the pour. Comes out quite viscous and slightly oily, with dark black walnut color and not a speck of light getting through. Head settles slowly to an almost milkshake like collar, with a nice top that is shiny but not too slick or oily looking. Excellent super dark looking brew.

Nutty and charring dark aroma fills the senses on first whiff. Velvety and rich creamy flavors fill the nose with a bit of spicy tones of clove and to some degree almost like a hot pepper. Dark cocoa powder, fudge sundae cake and roasted dark malts just come out rich and big.

Palate makes some nice pleasantries. Solid and almost easy drinking porter like feel, with a slightly milky texture on first sip. The nose leads on to give what the palate expects with some differences. Lighter chocolate roast, and a very interesting almost spicy chocolate pepper character. Aftertaste lingers with warm coffee qualities as well, and a mild tinge of tobacco sourness slightly. Almost charring woody smoke a bit too, with a lingering pepper like tingle as the beer warms up.

Real interesting, and I am liking this spicy angle to this beer with no added pepper like ingredients. Real fun and tasty stout.

Bottle from Binny's - Lincoln Park. Served in a Russian River tulip.

A - Dark reddish-mocha foam settles to a thin collar, leaving a few wisps on top and a few specks of lace. Pitch black body.

S - Fudge, dark chocolate, light soy and umami, vanilla, roasted nuts, and mild smoke and charred malt flavors. Quite sweet, but with sufficient roast to keep things form getting cloying.

T - The taste verges a bit more to the char and espresso side of things, with more smoke, roast, and dark chocolate. Again, there's a mild umami note, as well as hints of anise and fudge. Alcohol is pretty well hidden, but I could have stood for a bit more of the chocolate cake sweetness found in the aroma.

M - Full-bodied and viscous. Pleasant medium-low carbonation, melted chocolate texture but not overly sticky. Slightly dry and burnt in the finish, with a smokey residual feel.

D - I liked this about as much as I liked Even More Jesus; in fact I came up with the exact same score without even looking back at my older review for that beer. It's a well-made Imperial Stout but not quite worth the premium pricing. I'd drink it again if I had more disposable income or if someone offered though.

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.

11.2 oz bottle shared by Chris. Thanks.

Pours a dark black with a dark mocha head. Smokey, peaty aroma of ash, dark chocolate, roast, and char. Flavor starts with a mild chocolate and roast malt presence before descending into the depths of char and smoke, burnt coffee and powder. Viscous, thick body with soft carbonation. Not a bad beer, but not for me.

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.

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.

Pours viscous, pitch black and opaque with a one finger beige head that quickly settles into a thin, lasting ring.  Spotty lace left behind.  

Sweet boozy aroma with a decent amount of floral hops, burnt sugars and roasted dark malt.  Subtle earthy pine needle followed by sweet, fudge-y dessert-like chocolate notes and deep roast.  Chocolate, coffee bean,  caramel, toffee and alcohol sweetness along with burnt toast, oatmeal and smoke.

Viscous and full bodied with a really nice balance of earthy hops, boozy sweetness, sweet chocolate and dark roasted malt.  Earthy, resinous and piney hops provid a nice bitterness that compliments that roast and counters the dessert like sweetness.  Grassy pine needle bitterness up front, but not too much, followed by boozy heat, chocolate, caramel and toffee.  This is coutered by smoke and a robust roasted coffee bean presence along with some dark chocolate, oatmeal, burnt sugars and toast.  Plenty of alcohol sweetness but the high ABV is excellently masked.  Never would have guessed 12%.  Really complex and definitely a sipper but it's deceptively drinkable.

Poured a black body with khaki head and no lace at all. Roasted, even coffeeish, aroma with touch of chocolate in smell. Smooth and silky yet sticky and sweet, balanced between roasted malts and a milk chocolate presence and at times it even seems to have touch of dark fruit like raisin or plum. Slightly dry finish with well hidden abv and very enjoyable.

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 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.

Pours an opaque color black like oil with similar viscosity. Coffee, chocolate, more coffee, some roasty notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Full bodied and thick. Finishes with coffee and chocolate.
