COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
“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.

Tap at Torst. Umami nose, chocolate, soy sauce, licorice, some wood, lots of berries, esp. blueberries. A bit phenolic. Very fruity flavor, berries, chocolate, cherry, tart fruits. Interesting, tasty, a bit too fruity-sweet but good.

Appearance: It has an oil colored black body with a small but present fluffy light brown head. It leaves very fine bubbles on the glass. It has a very nice head, especially for such a high alcohol beer. Aroma: I get a heavily roasted coffee smell along with what smells like oak. I get a bit of alcohol on the nose. Taste: It is very rich and robust in flavor. At first I am hit by a dark roasted flavor like a combination of charcoal and rich dark cocoa. It reminds me of biting into a Hershey’s Special Dark chocolate bar, only richer and much more bitter. I get an oak flavor, which is shortly pushed out of the way by a bitterness that starts at the back of my tongue and moves throughout the mouth. Oddly, burping gives some pine-like hop presence. It is a very strong bitter beer. I caution drinkers of stouts who want a more mellow drink, that this is not a beer to be taken lightly. Palate: The presence on the palate is great. It is smooth and very heavily bodied. This is a palate dominating beer. It would take a substantial food dish to pair with this. Overall: This is a fantastic beer. It is bold, it is strong, it is a beer that shouts right at me with flavor. It is very rich and bitter, so again I would say that lighthearted stout drinkers be wary of this, a true Imperial Stout. Food pairing would be a challenge. I think it would go well with a rich barbeque dish or some grilled steak to complement the flavors instead of opposing them. I would drink this beer again, but not more than one in a sitting.

Bottle to glass. Pours an almost pitch black color with a creamy medium brown head. Aroma is a faint but pleasant roasted malts, slight burnt bitterness. Flavor is roasted malts, chocolate, molasses. Syrupy mouthfeel with a sweet roasted molasses finish. Delicious.

Not sure how this is a variation of Even More Jesus, but I’ll roll w dat. Seems a little less fudge-like. Still pours like motor oil and is friggin delicious. Maybe a tiny step off, but significantly cheaper at $4 per when getting a 4-pack. Loads of roast, chococlate, bitter and sweet, licorice. Decadent beer for sure, though it never seems hot at 12%. Evil Twin sure knows how to make stouts...

Bottle. The pour is black with a very light carmel head. The aroma is mostly malt with a hint of dark fruits. The taste is big and bold. A little bitter upfront. A nice thick stout. Something in the taste that I can't put my finger on, a little tartness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mcberko (6272) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 15, 2014
12 oz. bottle, pours black with a small brown head. Aroma brings out dark cocoa, roasted malt, and some liqueur. Flavour is rich and complex, with loads of liqueur, roasted malt and cocoa. Rich, elegant and highly drinkable, hiding the 12% big time. Absolutely decadent stuff.

Bottle. Pours black with brown head. Nose/taste of fudge, roast chocolate, bourbon, oak, black licorice, anise, earthy resin, roast coffee, toasted and burnt marshmallow and smoked vanilla. Full body.

Poured into a stout tulip. Jet black with a coffee colored one-finger head that drops to a ring. Bold aromas of boozy raisins and currents with hints of chocolate that is a bit hard to describe. Silky smooth mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Sweet malty roastiness (with hints of smoke) lingers on the palate. Incredibly balanced and complex (so much so that it's hard to describe). A stellar drinkable imperial stout (though at 12% I'm not sure more than one is on the table). ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

vyvvy (3951) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - AUG 6, 2014
Pours very dark brown with a deep burnt orange head. The aroma has heavy roast, whoppers, yoohoo, soy sauce, anise and chocolate. It has a full body that’s smooth, but then feels crisp with the sharp carbonation. The flavor starts off with dark chocolate, cinnamon, roastiness, light char, anise and coffee. The finish has earthy hops, smooth licorice and lingering oiliness. Really nice.
