Pours an inky black with a dark brown head, nearly as thick as oil. Aromas of chocolate, coffee, currants and roasted make. Thick mouthfeel with coffee, chocolate, dark fruits and a sugary aftertaste with just a touch of alcohol. Almost tastes like its been barrel aged. Excellent beer.

On tap. It feels a little blasphemous ordering this, but I’m sure that won’t come back to bite me in the ass.
A: Solid black with a cappuccino head. Leggy.
N: Huge chocolate, espresso and molasses. Oh, there’s the soy sauce. Everyone say "Hi, major character flaw which people inexplicably like". Roast and char.
T: Restrained sweetness and bitterness. They’re there, they’re big, but they aren’t overwhelming.
M: Oily and heavy. A fine treacly mouthfeel.
O: After awhile, all I can taste is soy sauce. C’mon people. I want to like your IRS, but if you are going to dump Kikkoman’s in there, we are never going to get along. Murano (10) - - AUG 11, 2014
This beer pours thick and black, like oil. It has the aroma of a Tootsie Roll tree. There are major notes of chocolate and coffee in the taste, with an aftertaste of dark coffee grounds. This beer, much like the real Jesus, does not make things easy. It is good, but a hard beer to get through. There is a sweet, syrupy taste and feel. There are notes of dark fruit and something I find I have marked as "sorghum? chicory?" If nothing else, that particular note tastes like those words sound. I first tried it with a pecan pie and vanilla ice cream. You’d think that would be too much of the same tastes, but I quite enjoyed it that way (it has to be a very good pecan pie, though--not the kind served at Waffle House). This beer may be further enjoyed on certain submarines, especially those that never go below water. kathouse (1874) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - AUG 8, 2014
Pitch black with no head to speak of. Chocolate aroma, toast, and raisins. Creamy and heavy on the palate. Chocolate, bacon, and blackened wood flavors are delicious with a fruit finish. Yum! valpoaj (742) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - AUG 8, 2014
Tap pour - pure black body with a robust deep brown head - looks enticing and rich. Aroma is heavily roasted on the cusp of burnt with lots of chocolate, malt and coffee - some hidden dark fruit, but the chocolate shines. Flavor is top notch - bakers chocolate, some dark fruit, coffee notes,hint of tobacco, and heavily roasted throughout. Thick, creamy palate, this beer drinks well for its potency and was a treat to have on tap. Yum!

Un bomber partagé par Patrick. Un liquide brun foncée presque noir avec une mousse mince beige, rien de plus...mais le reste.ouf !!! Un nez de chocolat liquide avec des fruits rouges, c’est enivrant (dans le bon sens su terme et enveloppant). La bouche est tout aussi superbe, après une gorgée j’ai crié à ma femme...c’est bon ça !

Pours black as midnight, and has a brown head. Aroma is dark chocolate, dark coffee, raisin. Some other flavors come in like caramel, and raisin. This is a very dark beer and has a definite alcohol presence. It hits you hard. There is a lot of jesus in this bottle! Over all I would recommend it.

Tunique presque noire aux contours rouges. Tête foncée qui ne résiste pas. Nez hallucinant de tabac, d’amandes fumées, de chocolat, de grains maltés rôtis, de torréfaction et de guimauves calcinées. Saveurs intenses et riches de raisins, de fruits foncés divers, de chocolat brun et noir, de grillades, de noix rôties et fumées, d’avoine brûlée, de copeaux de chêne et de houblons bien capables de modérer la montée des sucres. Bouche fortement densifiée avec une faible infiltration des bulles et une texture sirupeuse. Finale de chocolat mi-amer avec des noix fumées au bois de hickory. Fantastico!
