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.

reebtogi (4183) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 15, 2014
355ml bottle pours black in color with a finger and a half of light brown head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is dark fruits with chocolate and hints of coffee. Taste is a roasted grain and hop bitterness with a chocolate malty and fruity sweetness. Medium to heavy bodied with moderate carbonation. A well balanced and tasty imperial stout that is definitely worthy of sampling.

Bottle from Tacoma boys. Pours black. Thin tan head. Scent is cinnamon and molasses. Taste is pretty boozy, chocolate. Sweetness and alcohol linger a bit. Tasty brew.

notalush (4852) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 4, 2014
Fairly thick black pour - faint tan lace - nose of fig, tamarind, espresso, licorice/anise, some roast/bitterness, but also a strong-ish alcohol presence - slick mouthfeel, low carbonation - flavor is a little harsh - sharply bitter, with some strong ash character - this is followed by strong sweetness, raisin, tamarind, chocolate - finish is more intense bitterness and ash, along with alcohol heat - diaappointing considering the aroma.

Elwood (3161) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - SEP 4, 2014
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from State Line Liquors. Pours a viscous black with a huge and very long lasting dark brown head. Strong burnt malt notes in the nose. Vanilla, mocha, fresh ground coffee, a little milk sweetness, slight port and brandy notes. Alcohol is present but expected at this ABV. Chewy mouthfeel with a lingering finish. Tasty.

jimhilt (2403) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 3, 2014
Pours a two finger light tan head that fades quickly leaving traces of lace. Black color no highlights. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Dark chocolate & molasses nose and flavor is sweet chocolate, molasses some bitterness with finish. High ABV is noticeable. Nice imperial stout. Pricey at $4.99 for a 12oz bottle from Julio’s Liquors Westborough, Ma.

ajnepple (2165) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - SEP 1, 2014
4-pack of 12 oz bottles from Mile High Wine & Spirits. Thick and black appearance with a large, lingering light brown head. Aroma and flavor of roasted malts, bitter chocolate, coffee and light earthy notes. Rich and full-bodied with a lingering finish. Fantastic beer and priced right considering it’s ABV (12oz/$3.75)

chucklemation (475) - Pontiac, Michigan, USA - AUG 31, 2014
Pours a jet black with a thin tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, oak, and another off aroma I can’t identify. Flavor is similar, with a pleasant sweetness. Not bad, just a bit off.
