COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
On a pilgrimage for immortal craft beer we tripped on these heavenly drops of amazingly overwhelming aromas, a thick fudge-like body, pitch black color and obviously only made in limited amount. And then the taste....even more jesus! Produced and bottled by Evil Twin Brewing at Companyia Cervesera del Montseny SLL. Catalunya, Spain.

Bottle. Black beer with a thin brown head. Chooclate and rich malt aroma with toffee. Rich malt and licorice flavor with chocolate. Medium-plus bodied. Rich malt and toffee lingers with licorice and chocolate.

ABUSEDGOAT (2538) - California, USA - JUN 14, 2016
Black pour, tan head, decent lace/retention. Aroma is roast, coffee, chocolate, darker fruits, dried fruits, light anise. Medium to full body, well balanced with a fairly dry finish. Pretty nice for a non BA one, but grossly overpriced. Expedition stout is a $20 6 pack here and it’s better. This was a $9 bottle...

koleminer20 (2113) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUN 13, 2016
On draft at Beer Belly in Albany. The pour is light black with a little garnet around the edges. There is no head and no lace accordingly. The aroma is smokey. Fuck. There is a lighter milk chocolate thing happening that’s alright I guess. Smoke controls. Big malt and light bitter roast. I wish the Jesus series didn’t suck. The flavor is smokey as well. There is a bitter roast and some dry dark chocolate, but the smokiness just sucks. This could be much better without that shit. The mouth feel is thin and watery with a very light carbonation and a lingeringly smokey aftertaste. There is a hint of dry chocolate, but it’s light. I dislike this beer purely based on the smoke. God damnit.

ebone1988 (1182) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - JUN 13, 2016
Aroma is roasty, smoke, chocolate, coffee, not real complex. Appearance is black, light brown head, thick looking. Taste is smoke, roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, mostly smoke. Mouthfeel is heavy body, light carbonation, smoke aftertaste. Overall, this is good but lacking complexity. Pretty much the same as regular Jesus.

Franckg (987) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 12, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 12, 2016 Bouteille achetée en août 2015, bue après moins d’un an. Robe noire parfaitement opaque avec un léger col de mousse brun foncé rocailleux qui s’estompe rapidement. Arômes de malt rôti, alcool, chocolat noir, grains de café entiers, baies confites, mélasse, sucre d’orge et une touche de houblons resineux. En bouche, café expresso et chocolat noir. Pointes de malt rôti, baies foncées, pruneaux séchés. Arrière-goût de chocolat noir avec notes de vanille. Légère chaleur d’alcool même si celui-ci est bien caché. Texture veloutée et corps bien rond. Grande complexité, faible carbonatation agréable. Excellente.

Bottle from Belmont Station, Seattle
Oil black color with small brown head. The aroma is milder than expected, but the body makes up for that; full bodied, lovely chocolate flavor with some roasted malt, the sweetness level I like. Powerful and harmonious.
Excellent.

thepatrickman (693) - Durham, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 9, 2016
Bottle tried side-by-side with Even More Jesus. The flavor is very similar to the regular EMJ, bordering on exactly the same, but that’s only a compliment. This is chocolate, fudge, raisins, and dark fruit all packed into a rich, diabetes-inducing bottle. Seriously tasty.

Bottle. It poured a black color with a tan head. The aroma was of chocolate, roasted malts, marshmallows and alcohol. The taste was similar to the aroma with more chocolate, marshmallow, molasses, dark fruits and alcohol. Very tasty.
