My new favorite non-barrel-aged imperial stout. Huge and sooo smooth. Rich layers of espresso, fudge, plumbs, smoke, beef jerkey, syrup...may as well stop there. Not only does this pack about every note I’ve ever tasted in the style, it’s incredibly smooth. Every layer transitions into the next in perfect harmony. Then there’s the silky smooth, massive, coating body with just enough drying bitterness to pull everything through. Jesus, this is good.

I’m expecting this to be on tap in heaven. One of the most chewy full bodied stouts I have had. Dense and opaque black color with dark chocolate fudge, burnt sugar, rich caramel, and light roast characters. Excellent.

Inky black brown, no head. Bright spicy fruit, dark chocolate, a bit of espresso. Quite bitter, strong sweet body. Heavy, quite a bit of alcohol. Oily. Long finish. Excellent.

33cl bottle from Chevy Chase Wine and Liquors. Black in color and thick with a small fading tan head. The aroma is intense as hell, typical Euro imperial stout profile, dark chocolate, licorice, molasses, coffee, earth. The flavor is sweet and chocolatey with a bitter coffee ground finish. Again, very intense. Full bodied and slick. Hides the booze well. Praise Jesus! This is a good brewski.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very very dark brown with minimal tan head. Aroma roasted malt, coffee. Full body, syrupy mouthfeel, some alcohol. Flavor is pretty sweet, toasty, mocha, some dark fruits, malt. Some interesting flavors and less alcohol presence than expected but I just could not get into this one, even though it’s not too sweet it’s overly dense and heavy and syrupy.

Intensiv malziger, angenehm süßer Antrunk. Weich herb, schokoladig, trocken, was in diesem Fall aber passt. Viskos, das nun steigend trockene Mundgefühl stört. Weich, unsüffig aber gut. 12/11/11/11//11

Many thanks to travlr for this beer! Deep roasted smooth nose. The beer starts thick and intense. Sourish-roasted, very dark and intense, super rich. Burned sugars, dry thick caramel, velvet and viscosity. Fantastic - not too sweet, extreme thick and smooth in one.

11.2oz bottle purchased at the Pearl St. Beverage Warehouse in Burlington, VT. Pours an oily, jet black with a thick, frothy, dark mocha, quickly dissipating head. Smells of cocoa, wood, currants and alcohol. Nothing special. Tastes of dark cocoa, slight currants and a good amount of alcohol coming through. Other than that, not too complex. Smooth mouthfeel, thick enough but nothing crazy. Honestly, preferred the café version of the Jesús. A little disappointed but still a good imperial stout.
