“When I copied the famous Even More Jesus, I had to ask myself as an artist, why am I doing this? I didn’t honestly know. It was just an instinct about beer as pure form… in a sense this stout is like a metaphor for freedom - the sum of all the beauty that surrounds me and my perfect contemporary existence.”

Hoozah, I love a good stout. Oil black. Thick tan lacing. Coffee. Slight nuttiness. Hot aftertaste (11 abv) but not overpowering.

Shark_Pants (303) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 24, 2015
Dark as a collapsed star with sizeable frothy mocha head. The aroma has heaps of dark chocolate, some vegemite, leather, port wine and molasses. Very roasty taste and wow, a big whack of booze. Somewhere in and around the alcohol punch in the face is golden syrup, cola, dark chocolate, port, earthy hops and a hint of vegemite. Viscous and full bodied. Very big imperial stout but would be better with more subtleness with the booze and less sweetness.

Botella de 33 cl en el momento en cimmeria el 17-01-2015. lote 176:14. color negro intenso con espuma beige bastante oscura que desaparece pronto hasta quedarse en pequeño anillo. Aromas intensos de maltas tostadas, algo dulces y bastante sensación licorosa. Sabores también de maltas tostadas, dulces y con toques de frutos del bosque, ligeramente ácidos, seguidos de algo de cacao y frutos pasos, ciruela, uvas, todo ello con una abundante dosis de alcohol que le da un buen toque de licor. Cuerpo medio a intenso con 12 vol que se van notando cada vez mas según va calentando. Paso ligero con algo de densidad y pastosa, pero en general fácil de beber. Similitudes de licor. Bastante buena grandes dosis de alcohol y sabores intensos.

patrick767 (3672) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 18, 2015
tap - Pours black with a very small tan head. The aroma is of dark roast malt and is also really boozy. It tastes of sweet chocolate malt and alcohol. It’s full bodied and not subtle, that’s for sure. It’s a good beer overall but even at this level of alcohol a beer doesn’t have to be so boozy.

Defreni (2687) - Husum, DENMARK - JAN 18, 2015
Flaske: Kulsort øl med et fint skumhoved. Duften er tørret frugt og lidt humle. Smagen er let tør men masser af sødme. Meget drikbar og de 12% er fuldstændig skjult. Lækker øl.

Vells (773) - Riga, LATVIA - JAN 17, 2015
Pleasantly warming, smooth. Huge beer. Intense roasted malts, even burned, quite intense choco, vanilla, molasses, light licorice. Lovely dried fruit notes. Not too pushy, but intense sweetness balanced with moderate bitterness. Awesome brew.

In short: subtle sour robust stout.
Pours black with some nice tan head. Short head retention, some lacing. Roasty, liquorice, some sour aromas. Medium body, flat carbonation, viscous texture. Taste follows the nose, roasty, spicy, coffee, chocolate flavours, again a subtle sour note. Quite enjoyable.
