COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Few times in the history of craft beer it has happened that a highly praised beer rises beyond mortal stardom into a higher godly league. Usually the recipe to make such heavenly drops is thick fudge-like body, pitch black color, amazingly overwhelming aromas of chocolate, coffee, dark fruits and muscovado sugar, obviously only made in limited amounts and most crucial of all – it must taste rare!

NikkTwist (1911) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 23, 2015
Bottle at Eulogy. Opaque black pour with an impressive sheet of dark brown foam. Lasting ring but only sporadic lace. Huge roasted chocolate coffee flavors. Fantastically full body and creamy finish. OMG! Really great stuff! Was not expecting this. Deep complex notes of molasses and espresso. Charcoal grill. Rich chocolate nibs. Black cherry. Leather jacket. Tobacco. Finishes way too creamy and smooth for a 12% brew! Fantastic!

rondphoto (2688) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - MAY 8, 2015
on tap @ Vino Bellissimo / Lima OH --- Opaque black/brown color, 1" brown head, full curtain of lace that slowly drifts back into the drink. Taste is chewy toasted caramel malt that moves into the palate with a minimum of fizz, and a bit of dried fruit, that, in spite of 75 IBUs, retains the toasted caramel through a long sweet finish. A solid, full-bodied brew.

Pistacho (37) - SPAIN - MAY 3, 2015
On tap at Irreale. Roasted cocoa aroma, with black olive and cofee hints. Sweet at first sip. Chocolate and cherry flavors. Perhaps unballanced acidity, ashtray notes from the roasted malts.

Atom (1668) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 5, 2015
Bomber of Even More Jesus for Easter, I think so! Pours a dark brown/black with a large dark brown head. Aroma of chocolate malt/shake, vanilla, molasses, sugar, with light coffee and roasted malt. Taste of sweet sugary chocolate, molasses, dark fruits, with some light roasted malts and lightly bitter coffee on the finish. Smooth and nicely balanced!

BMMillsy (1655) - Florida, USA - APR 4, 2015
Bottle from Gator Beverage. Nice little surprise when I walked in. This one pours pitch black with a very dark, half finger creamy head that settles like the top of a cup of espresso. Aroma of big peaty smoke, dark fruit, roast, chocolate fudge. Flavor follows with lots of smoked malts, roasty chocolate fudge, plenty of dark fruit, molasses. Big rich body, medium low carbonation, dry lingering smoke finish. Man, this is good. I’ve had double barrel Jesus, and assumed this was the base beer, but coming into this had no idea it was a smoked stout. DB Jesus had no smoke so I guess it was a different base. Really pleasant surprise as I love these smoked stouts when done right. This was done right.

Pours pitch jet black with thin tightly carbonated chocolate brown lacing. Aroma is rich chocolate, light booze, and sweet cherries. Mouthfeel is syrupy with notes of chocolate, oak, toast, light booze and chocolate.

Bottle in Pueblo with my Dad. Pour is pitxh black with a small brown head and good lacing. Vanilla, slightly ashy, some cocoa, toasted bread, toffee, and roasted brown sugar in the aroma. Taste is rich dark chocolate, some cinnamon, light smoke, some caramel, espresso, rich sugar, and some spice with a rich finish. Thick mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Pretty tasty.
