“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.”

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.

Maakun (1242) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 20, 2015
Shared bottle. Black with small beige head. Marzipan, chocolate, sweet herb candies, very sugary, some cognac notes, roasted bitter coffee, strawberry jam, Italian herbs. Very sweet with light roasted bitter finish. Medium to full bodied with quite some booze. Nice stuff, but very sweet and boozy without the matching thick body or strong aroma. Still nice though.

kajser27 (173) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 20, 2015
Thick black, quite dark tan weak head which almost immediately turns to only a ring. Aroma is of dark fruits, licorice, walnut, chocolate and roasted malts, sweet. Taste is quite sweet, follows the nose with dark fruits, walnut liqueur, molasses and more pronounced chocolate and roasty notes. Bitter roasted dryish finish. Full bodied, thick, low carbonation. Alcohol heat present and alcohol is somewhat noticable.

Maris (1116) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - MAY 11, 2015
From a 355ml bottle on 11/5/2015. Pours a very dark brown with a small head. Has a strong malty aroma, featuring masses of chocolate and caramel, a hint of roastiness and a whiff of booze.The flavour is just massive - super sweet with dark and milk chocolate, caramel, brown sugar, fugde, cocoa, licorice, vanilla and treacle, set off against burnt/roasted malt, soy and some firmish hops. Has a sticky, syrupy texture with soft carbonation. This is a crazy, huge, complex, delicious, truly magnificent dessert beer.
