Revisiting a 2019 vintage. Green pepper emerging, chilies really becoming more pronounced. Not too much oxidation or lingering heat, but the chocolate component is nice; overall holding up well.

I’m a big fan of imperial stouts, especially bourbon barrel aged. I’ve had a number of Prairie Ale’s stouts, and some Evil Twin stouts.
Not my style when it comes to stout. Weird flavor profile- the chiles seem to affect the balance. Too much of a Chile aroma and aftertaste.

The MF is smooth, but I was looking for a creamier MF.
Not much bitterness in the finish.
Brewed well. Not a favorite approach to stout for me.

*Poured into a Teku glass from a 12oz bottle*

This beer poured out a very dark brown, almost pitch black. It didn't have much of a head at all, but left a nice dark khaki lacing around my glass.

The aroma on this was very similar to Bomb! with some minor differences. I found that the chilies used in this were the most dominating aroma, followed by coffee and cacao. These aromas were then followed by a slightly acidic coffee note in the back-end with notes of vanilla and caramel.

I was definitely able to taste the base of Even More Jesus in this, but I thought that it overall reminded me more of Bomb. The taste followed the nose, giving me all of the spiced flavors of Bomb, but the base of EMJ followed the notes of coffee, vanilla, and chilies giving me lots of dark chocolate, licorice, and a touch of dark caramel sweetness. I found that as this warms up, there was a bit of a medicinal/herbal taste to this.

Like EMJ, the feel on this was viscous, thick, fudgy, and full-bodied. This had some moderate amount of carbonation to it, and was extremely easy to drink for the ABV. The only thing was I didn't like about this was the long and lingering bitter aftertaste on this. But other than that, the feel on this was very nice.

Poured from a bottle - pours black as night with minimal chocolate milk head leaving a ring of tiny bubbles and not much else. Nose is muted roasty malt,maybe a hint of chocolate and some faint chili aroma. Taste follows more or less with some coffee, chocolate and chili stepping up a bit. Seems like a diluted version of "even more jesus" with chili's added.

Pours pitch black, nearly impervious to light. Big mocha head slow to recede. Aroma is chocolate, dark roasted malts, a little yeast. Flavor is chocolate and chili pepper, but no heat (beer might be old), light coffee and sweet vanilla. Creamy and full bodied. Overall, wry reminiscent of prairie bomb with more body. Would like to try fresh, and barrel aged as well...

Pretty wild, poured a finger-width head that fizzed our after a minute. Smells up front of chiles, really nice scent with some chocolates sweetness up in there.
Tastes about as good as it smells, spice and vanilla with a little oak going on. Feels good, a rich mouthfeel while not overly thick. Goes down smooth with a lil kick. Pretty much an even more Jesus bomb! If you can imagine that. Great showing by two great American brewers.

This beer is DARK. It makes you wonder if you should pull out the Bible and pray to Jesus for the complete deliciousness it provides you. #lovely

12oz bottle code of 04919 (49th day of 2019 potentially?), opened 1-5-20.
Black stout with a 1/4" tan head...good retention at a solid cap. A few specks of lace.
Dark roast and perceived bitter coffee jumps out first. Charred malts and a hint of the potential spicy chilies that could be coming.
Roasted and slightly charred malts, coffee bitterness, just a faint hint of chili heat. No vanilla left. Bakers cacao - the dusty more bitter kind of chocolate makes an appearance.
Full body, low to medium carbonation...slick/oily mouthfeel. SMOOTH. Medium length roasty finish.
13% isn't apparent whatsoever. Coffee pops up and lingers longer after the initial "finish".
Very good - not the stunner I hoped for after having Christmas Bomb! for the first time recently.

Bible Belt pours a very deep, dark brown, almost motor oil, quit viscous with a deep, fine, tan head that leaves a thin veil of lacing. The smell comes off very rich and dark with a heavy espresso, cacao bean, licorice and roasted malts with a wish of sweet vanilla. The taste has a very heavy mouthfeel but coats the palette, ever so smoothly. Bitter coffee with a strong dark chocolate and roast malts with a slight heat from the chilies, as it warms.
