3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thick black pour, mocha head with a nice, glass coating appearance and some decent lacing. Aroma of smoke, coffee, burnt caramel, coffee and chocolate. Flavor has a slightly more oily, charred presence along with more coffee, booziness and a good helping of dark fruit and piney hops. Thick syrupy,creamy feel on entry, slightly drier, syrupy feel after that with a lightly chalky finish and light to medium strength slightly sharp carbonation. Good stuff, complex and flavorful, has a nice boozy warmth without tasting too boozy in the taste or smell and tons of roast, coffee and just the right amount of smoke and hops to keep it interesting. Tasty for sure, but at $9/12oz., not a repeat buy, cut that by 1/2 or 2/3 and I might think about it. Too many better beers for less.

Bottle at Max’s Taphouse. Pours jet black with a thin khaki head. Leaves trace lacing in the glass. Huge malty chocolaty notes on the nose and tongue. I can’t say I’m getting much coffee action out of this. It does hide it’s booze well but this has been my least favorite, though still quite good, of this series.

330ml bottle courtesy of Steve. This was the booziest o the Jesus lineup. Pours out black with a small beige ring. Aroma features lots of coffee, dark roasty malts and some semi-sweet chocolate. Taste brings more roast malts and coffee, mildly sweet finish and lots of alcohol heat.

Negra turva com pequena/média quantidade de particulas suspensas, espuma marrom cremosa de média formação e boa persistência. No aroma bastante café torrado, licor, leve baunilha e tabaco. No paladar uma mistura de amargor intenso e médio dulçor caramelado. Corpo licoroso e média carbonatação. Final reforça o café torrado e tabaco, álcool um pouco acima do desejável mas aceitável.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours black with mocha foam head that is fine and leaves a ring of foam hugging my glass. The aroma is of smoke, chocolate, booze, earthy coffee, and a sugary sweet scent. Tasting is rather smooth with a full body and mouth feel. I picked up on a mildly bitter roasted coffee taste. There was also flavors of chocolate, sweet sugary malts, and a pleasant booze taste. Overall this is a nicely done coffee stout. For a 12 abv brew it was balanced and goes down well.

Consumed for “Drink It Now” day, hosted by GenDV138. Poured a pitch black color, small dark tan head. Aroma was lots of roasted malts, ton of chocolate and a blast of coffee. Flavor was roasted malts, creamy chocolate. This is pretty pretty good, probably the best one of these Evil Twin beers in this series that I’ve had.

Draft... Pours black with a small, creamy, cappuccino-like head. Decent retention. The aroma is all about Mocha Mocha Mocha – and some fudge. Full-bodied and velvety with Key West carbonation. The flavor features tons of charcoal, dark chocolate and deeply roasted coffee. Lengthy, carbonic, black mocha finish. This is really heavy on the coffee. It’s liquid intensity. Too intense for me. Still, I have to tip my cap to quality.

Lovely giant coffee stout, pouring layers of thick, roasted chocolate goodness on top of a healthy java backbone. Cherry notes pop up for a second, then melt into an anise-tinged mocha finish. Fades sweet and syrupy, with a lingering bitterness giving up the slightest boozy heat. But no friggin’ way you’d ever believe this thing is 12%. Man this beer is tasty.
