3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2014 Bottle: Thanks, Ron. Thick, black pour with a mocha foam that settles to a thin film & moderate collar. Nice aroma of heavily roasted coffee & burnt brown sugar, charred nuts, a touch of underlying sweet creaminess, & some deep, dark cocoa. A little thin on the mouth, possibly overcarbonated. Flavors of espresso, rich & roasted coffee beans, dark chocolate malt, dry cocoa bean, a touch of cream, toasted brown sugar, & plenty of lingering, residual sweetness. Nice transition from roasted to sweet by the finish. Nice.

"light in body for 10% but smooth as glass. chocolate, hops, roast, fairly sweet flavor. seems like this could very well be the base beer, or very similar to the base of Soft Dookie. Well done."

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
4 pack of Jesus Juice. Pours thick and black like the handle on this lambic basket:
Yeah. Smells like tobacco spit and used motor oil. Skoal Classic Long Cut, to be exact. Oily and slick. Taste is semi dry and lightly bitter. Pretty well attenuated and unadulterated. Flavors of cigarette butts, tar, black patent malt. Heavily roasted. Slightly minty. Very, very well executed. This is a world class beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours pitch black with a small short-lived brown head. Aroma of roasted malt. Taste is of roasted malt, chocolate, dark fruits and a hint of vanilla and bourbon. Sweet and roasty. Low carbonation but I can’t figure out the body - it seems both full and a bit watery at the same time. Alcohol well-hidden. Well, not very complex or memorable - I’d call it solid and above average but not more than that.

Cervesa amb molt aroma a cafè i a cacau, també se li nota molt l’alcohol, recomanable prendre amb calma perquè evoluciona molt bé.

4.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Date on bottle: 08/23/13Appearance: Black body with a creamy tan head that fades very quickly and leaves a ring and lacing on the glass.Aroma: Mild notes of coffee and a hint of chocolate. Pretty light in the aroma department even as the beer warms up.Taste: Very strong presence of wood and a strong coffee flavor. Notes of chocolate with a very notable espresso aftertaste. Rich and enjoyable!Palate: It is full bodied without being too thick or sticky. Nice finishing bitterness that complements the aftertaste very nicely. Overall: An excellent beer. I wouldn?t call it perfect but it?s to the point where I internally consider whether it is, which speaks volumes of the quality of this beer. I would say that the only detractor is the aroma, otherwise it is absolutely amazing. Even considering the slightly limited aroma I would buy it again in a heartbeat. Strongly recommend.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Chocolate, roasted aroma, could have been more intense, but it’s very nice. Dried fruits in the background. Pours black with small head, but leaving a very nice lacing. Amazing taste, sweet, full of chocolate and roasty aftertaste. Rather low bitterness and low carbonation. Alcohol warms the throat, but it’s the only sign of beer’s abv (10%). Apart from the aroma, it’s amazing.

Pours pitch black with a large brown head. Smells of bourbon, chocolate, roast, hints of licorice. Taste is bourbon sweetness, hints of vanilla, chocolate, and licorice. Full-bodied with a velvety texture and smooth mouth-carbonation, Evil Twin Christmas Eve at a New York City Hotel Room finishes with a lingering bourbon licorice flavor.
