    I'd be more excited if it didn't have coffee, but I generally love these types of beers (minus the coffee)!

    If Cafe Jesus and Chili Jesus are any indication, this will rise to the top of all of those hitting this trend.

    It does sound like a cross between the two beers. Frankly, I think those are very good, but not excellent entries in the Jesus series. For whatever reason, the Cervesera del Montseny versions just don't resonate with me as much as the Westbrook versions (especially if you consider beers like From Amager with Love as extensions of EMJ).

    I found the Chili Jesus to be one of the best Chili Stouts I've ever had.

    anyone know why they label it as a Malt Beverage as opposed to a Stout (like they used to)?

    Could be just the freshness of when I had it, but the Cafe that I had was well balanced but not a huge coffee bomb. Anyone else experience that or did I wait too long to drink mine ? With that being said hoping this version is as well balanced, but with more coffee

    Are Evil Twin beers worth the price? They seem to just collect dust at every bottle shop due to the high cost. I think I've had one of their beers and thought it was nothing special.

    As with any brewery it's all subjective. Some of the beers are, some aren't. I would spend $40 to drink Pappy Jesus again at Tørst.

    They vary, but their stouts and porter are generally strong.

    Imperial Biscotti Break and Even More Jesus stand tall within the lineup. I'm also partial to Lil B, I Love You with My Stout, and Christmas Eve in a NYC Hotel Room. Double Barrel Jesus and Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Biscotti Break are always worth their high cost of admission, IMO.

    Opinions will vary on the variants like Imperial Doughnut Break and IBB Natale with a Cherry on Top, and the Café and Chili Jesus, but they're at least good, IMO. From Amager with Love is awesome, IMO.

    Among non-stouts, opinions probably will vary more, but Molotov Lite does have its fans.

    Thanks. I will give them a shot. It's just easy to pass given all the affordable beers from heavy hitters like SN, Founders, etc.

    elektrikjester Aspirant (232) Nov 15, 2008 Georgia

    Evil Twin is far from what I'd call affordable beer, but its stouts are generally quality products. EMJ and IBB are brewed at Westbrook, and their fingerprints are all over these beers, if that's a thing to you. Ditto for Double Barrel Jesus, Cognac Jesus, and the Pappy's versions, which were barreled at the same time as WB Mexican Cake.

    Some people think these details don't matter much, but I think otherwise.

    The only point I will add is that IBB is better the fresher it is.

    Not to thread jack, but they also just posted another new brew -- a 4.2% version of IBB

    Does anyone else think it's slightly tacky that most of the Jesus beers are 12% and also distributed by twelve percent. At first cute, now I'd like to see different (read: higher) ABVs

    I totally disagree, 12% is pushing too high abv for me. 10% is usually about the max I like drinking, and those Avery beers are just stupid imo.

    I bought a 12oz bottle today at a bottle shop in Nashville for $8.99. I really like the Aun Mas Chili Jesus so I figured I'd give this a shot & the store only had a couple left. Hope it's worth the cash.....

    Imo it's hit or miss as far as "worth the price" but if you pick wisely you find the gems. James Beer was amazing, the Molotov series is good as well.

    I found the Chili Jesus to be one of the best Chili Stouts I've ever had.

    I found that one to be a miss imo, I hoped for much more chili heat, more on par with Central Waters' Space Ghost Chili Stout.

    I'm right there with you; I loved the Chili Jesus.

    I was a bit letdown by Coffee Jesus (perhaps I had too high of expectations because of my, um, heavenly experience with the Chili version).

    i'm right there with you, their stouts haven't blown me away like double negative or any of the speedway stout varieties. Idk if its cause Jeppe likes to overload his stouts with Domino sugar rather then malts. ( went to two roads and saw pounds upon pounds of sugar and asked what that was for, was told jeppe uses sugar as one of his main ingredients in his brews)

    other then that i never understood the hype behind them, idk anyone who wants to drink a 17% ipa that burns more then anything.

    The Jesus beers are probably the closes to being "worth the price." I only had a taster worth of James Beer, which I thought was good. I don't think that beer is "worth the price," at like $14 for a bomber of a 3.5% berliner. I love berliner's but that one didn't do it for me.

    Molotov Lite is brilliant, especially for the package (4-pack of 16 oz. cans). I grabbed a $20-22 bottle of Molotov Heavy, which I'm not sure is worth the price, but I hope it is. I likened it to the pricing of a bomber of 120 minute. I'm excited though. I don't know if I should treat it like 120 and age it for a few years.

    Chili is one of my favorite spiced/"hot" stouts. Phenomenal.

    It's probably an old bottle, I wrote that four months ago and had it even before that. I'm guessing a lot of the heat fell off.

    As for CW, that uses ghost peppers, I would expect it to be hotter!

    Give Ghost Face Killah a try :slight_smile:

    I had chili Jesus and thought it was just a bit lacking in the heat department. I was wondering if the chili was prone to falling off with age. After reading your post I'm guessing it is.

    Haven't seen anyone else post the answer, but this beer is an amalgamation of all (Todo = All) the Jesús variants — Chili, Cafe, Aún Mas, etc. . . I'll post more once it comes in.

    This one will be one of the most expensive single bottles (11.2 oz), and only available by the single bottle (at least in this market).

    Good god. $8.99 actually sounds like a somewhat reasonable price for this brew if it's anything like it sounds (DELICIOUS). I'd love to pick up a couple at that price, yowsa!

    I 've been mostly disappointed with their beers of late. Overpriced and overrated.

    I wrote a review on this todo version. Just like people are saying, resembles bomb! But better. Lots of heat from the chilis. Def worth the price

    Love this one, I try to get it when I can since it's one of the very few beers my father, an avid budweiser drinker, actually asks for when he visits. Hope to see it now that I am in NV. Cheers!

    Atlanta got it last week, $6.99-7.99 retail. I'm tempted but after drain pouring four bottles of Cognac Jesus (all infected), I'm leery.

    This is really great stuff. Don't worry about infection, it's not barrel-aged. And I would try contacting Evil Twin or Westbrook regarding Cognac Jesus. That's $100+
