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.

Darwenus (844) - Virginia, USA - JUL 16, 2016
Not as good as Even More Jesus, with a lot more boozy/alcohol character and not as much complexity. Pours black with average head, the aroma is anise, very bitter, burnt roasted malt, some alcohol. Malty up front on the tongue, but the finish has enough strong alcohol character to almost be medicinal, at least in comparison to the far better EMJ.

heavy (2662) - Split, CROATIA - JUL 16, 2016
Apr. ’16. A 0.33 l bottle that poured a bit hazy, very dark brown, almost black body with a small brown head. Fine, very fine roasted malt aroma of coffee, dark chocolate, dark fruits like plums and raisins. Flavor was lightly bitter roasted with a strong pleasantly sweetish note, too. More of the same, with a medium complexity although very balanced. Full bodied with a long, nicely rounded finish. Only lightly warming, the alcohol was well subdued. A nice one!

Turboninja (468) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 13, 2016
Bottle@Konttori, Tampere, Finland. Strong aroma with licorice, plum, some chocolate and bourbon. Pitch black color with minimal/small light beige head. Strong taste with plum and licorice. Some coffee and just slightly roasted malts. Balanced with medium taste spectrum and medium/short aftertaste with plum and licorice. Strong body with light carbonation. Overall, superb product with emphasis to sweeter nuances with cost of malty flavors.

rodenbach99 (4153) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 11, 2016
Style et résumé: Imperial stout.
Comment: En fût au Saint-Bock finale Euro 2016.
Portrait: Une robe brune foncée presque noire. Un nez de chocolat, de café torréfié. Une bouche agréable, piquante avec une touche d’alcool. Des saveurs marquées par le chocolat et la mélasse. Une belle rondeur se développe en se réchauffant.
Note: 7+/10

Bif (1983) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 2, 2016
Bottle. Pours a black color with a foamy head and lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate and trace of smoke. Taste of roasted malt, dark fruit, dark chocolate and coffee. Bitterness that lingers into a dry finish. Full body, with a robust character. Well crafted with no hint of the 12% ABV.

tightslice (848) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUN 27, 2016
Bottle from Beltramo’s in Menlo Park, CA. Aroma is coffee, charred fruits, dark chocolate. Taste is smoked, charred dark fruits that have been fermented into a boozy black concoction that will haunt you. Amazing.

Bottle (from beergium). Pours dark brown. Aroma is sweet and bitter, roast, fruits, alcohol. Flavor is sweet and bitter, roast, cherry, malt, ash. Finish is sweet with dry bitterness and some booze. Overall: ok-ish, but too boozy and somewhat just not balanced.

suurjuust (2770) - ESTONIA - JUN 25, 2016
Bottle shared by Mart. Almost black beer, very small head. Nose is chocolate and coffee, hints of booze in the background, licorice, some sweetness, some citrc hops. Flavor is sweet, way sweeter than the nose would suggest, caramel, some roast. Slightly sticky finish, caramel and chocolate, some alcohol. Lots of booze in the aftertaste. Too much booze.

Salwal (307) - GERMANY - JUN 24, 2016
Bottle at home poured into nosing glass. Pours pitch black with thick beige to brown head. Nose of roasted malts coffee and liquorice. Taste is quite bitter for a Stout, intense residual sweetnes, sticky creamy mouthfeel. Plums, raisins and dryed fruit in General. I like it while I find the sweetnes a bit out of bounce...

anstei (1012) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - JUN 16, 2016
Tap at Erzbierschof Zurich. Faint nose of boozy burnt malts, but really low. Strong taste though, some sweetness, healthy bitterness, still boozy and powerful. Charming palate, strong nuts and booze again. But all that booze actually works really well and is not off at all. Nice, but not overwhelming.
