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.”

philipmeese (84) - Rowayton, Connecticut, USA - APR 29, 2014
12oz. bottle. Pours opaque black with a brown foamy head that rises slowly and stays. Clean chocolate, toasty aroma. A soft carbonation propels a heavy, but not syrupy, soft sweetness under a complex balanced and heavy malt body. The hot alcohol is very subdued. The body is solid without being sticky. This is a great sipping beer, and after savoring every sip, you come back for more. There is a long sweet, chocolate, malt finish that tapers gradually.

Bottle from andersons. Black pour and almost no head. Smoky and thick with bit of alcohol bite covered in malt. Smooth and tasty.

MiP (14656) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 4, 2016
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2016 Bottle, 12%. Vinous aroma, slightly sweet, red berries. Black colour. Small brown head. The first impression the flavour gives is sticky sweetness. Then comes some sweet and spicy liquorice, and even later a long and bitter raw liquorice note. Has some piney hop and a touch of jam. Sticky and oily mouthfeel. There is a bit of alcohol in the finish but nothing that hints at the 12% ABV and it does not begin to balance the sweetness at all. A great beer but could have been less sweet. Actually, the more I drink, the less I like it.

Big and bad with dark fruit and licorice joining the usual coffee and chocolate stout notes. Thick and oily.

Bottle. Black with a minimal khaki coloured head.. Aroma has chocolate, roasted malt, some sweetness and alcohol fumes. Taste is sweet with licorice, dark chocolate, roasted malt, espresso, hop bitterness that is well balanced. Full body, low soft carbonation, super smooth and thick mouth feel. Warming after taste.

Linnet (1442) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - JAN 24, 2016
soy sauce, licorice, raisin, chocolate, coffee, roasty, alcohol, hint of vanilla and molasses, rich and rewarding. Black colour, small mocha head, lacing. Heavily sweet, salty, lightly bitter, ABV evident, but not boozy. Fullbodied, oily feel, soft carbonation, long, salty, roasty and warming finish. Very good.

tricksta_p (2677) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JAN 22, 2016
Bottle at home. Aroma is lots of sweet liquorice, dark malt, sweet chocolate, soy sauce, plum, raisins, molasses, hoppy notes. Flavour is massively sweet, cloying and heavy. Body is full, sticky. A bit too heavily cloying sweet and liquorice forward for my taste, but still a pretty enjoyable beer.

355 ml bottle from Systembolaget. Pitch-black with small brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee, smoke, caramel, licorice, dried fruits and alcohol. Taste reflects the aroma, but is more sweet. Medium to full-bodied bodied. Medium bitterness. And low carbonation.
