Black as the coal mined from beneath the brewery Black Jesus is a black IPA brewed with biblical quantities of premium American hops and special dehusked German roasted malt. A second coming for the church of the IPA. Enjoy with Chocolate, cold meats or just loaves and fishes.

Like many black IPAs, a confusingly enjoyable hybrid. Nose has grapefruit, dark fruits and light coffee. Taste has milky coffee, soft toffee and chocolate, pineapple and grapefruit. Medium body, slightly creamy mouthfeel. Very dark brown with off-white head. Good stuff.

Brasserie du North Yorkshire ,UK. Inconnue au bataillon,cette bière a attirée mon attention d’abord par son étiquette franchement réussie et surtout le nom, Black Jesus, donc, Lord Have Mercy !!! c’est une Black IPA, tout est dit.au service, une belle mousse crémeuse, fine ,qui disparait assez vite. Au nez ,c’est assez étrange, déroutant meme, alors en vrac, fruité, chocolat au lait, un peu café grillé, beurré (?!!),on s’attend en bouche à du sucré, du suave,et au début,c’est ça ..sauf que ça dure pas..ya Jesus qui se rebiffe, y tend pas l’autre joue,y sort le nunchak, le gonze, sbraaaaak dans ta face, l’amertume bien sentie te remet à ta place de pauvre pécheur...Bien sympa, parceque ça n’en fait pas une bière extrème pour autant, ça passe bien, trés bien meme, une belle réussite.

A Jekyll & Hyde beer - beautiful fruity nose with a long bitter taste with both hops (clean & fruity) & Carafa malt (dark chocolate) contributing. Rated by BrewTom

UPDATED: JUL 29, 2016 Cask @ Fox & Goose, Hebden Bridge. Black with a thin creamy off-white head. Has some roasted malt aroma, but it’s not very stated, although it’s slightly more so in its taste.

On tap in BeerCab. Nice color so black. Small and off head. Chocolate aroma, hoppy notes too. Medium-high bitterness, milk-chocolate and grapeful in taste. Medium-high body. Roasty-bitter finish.

Bottle. Black with tan head. Roasty aroma of coffee and chocolate. Taste is similar, roasty with some resinous pine in the finish. Decent body with a mild bitterness. Decent but perhaps used to be hoppier
