bottle from friar tucks , dark brown pour w big foamy light brown head. aroma of malt and cocoa, some taste of chocolate and caramel. decent aspidites (1272) - manteca, California, USA - NOV 27, 2007
Mild grain astringency and roasted malt nose. Astringent bordering on tannic palate. Mild cocoa and anise notes fit well without overpowering. beerlover1946 (8) - albany, New Jersey, USA - FEB 11, 2006 does not count
overall a very good beer. i find the name to be quite creative and that is what drew me in at first. it’s a very good beer with a very deep color and a tannish head. i would recommend this to anyone. oldrtybastrd (5002) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 1, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2006 Pours a nice dark color with a tan head. Aromas of chocolate/roasted malts and kind of fruity? Taste was of roasted malt and some coffee and kind of floral taste. brocker (99) - Salina, Utah, USA - JAN 27, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2005 Alas, an answer to the age old theological question. "What were they eating at the last supper"?
With this piece of the puzzle, we can safely assume it was buffalo wings and pretzels.
The Son of God angle is unique, but very risky.
You see, if you go with your dark underlord Satan theme you can’t go wrong. Drinking a bottle of something like Satan’s Nut Sack Brown Ale, you think "ah, tough name." You drink it and it’s nasty, and you figure, " what did I really expect, after all it’s Satan.
With the Holy Jesus beer it just seems you can’t be let down because God is good.
This beer was pretty good, but certainly not perfect. I’m a little let down. So now I question. Am I as Job was? Is God testing my faith? Are the people at Mendocino Brewing false prophets?
What would Jesus drink?

22 oz. bottle. Pours opaque black with a small dark tan head. Sweet mocha aroma. Dark, sweet chocolately flavor. Well-balanced, nice mellow aftertaste. Pretty much a standard stout. jimhilt (2610) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 13, 2004
Pours with a good brown head that doesn’t leave much lace. Midnight black, light does not pass through it. Medium bodied, nose is burnt chocolate. Good mix of hops and malt, smooth, starts sweet and finishes with a slightly bitter finish. $4.20 for a 22oz. bottle BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAR 3, 2004
Dark black color, nice creamy tan head. The aroma has some sweet notes of chocolate and lots of roast. Some toffee and caramel show through as well although a bit metallic. The flavor is more sweet & fruity than roasted but not very balanced and dirty metallic tasting. Finishes very metallic like sucking on a penny, seems too dry maybe. Just looking at the picture on the front makes me think about how dirty this beer could be. DCopperfields (146) - New York, USA - FEB 9, 2004
This poured a dark amber color, with a pretty big, tannish head and substantial lacing ringing my glass.
Nice aroma of roasted malt, and just a succinct of bittersweet chocolate and roasted pine nuts.
Medium mouthfeel, roasty in flavor with good malt up front, and not a lot of sweetness. Hop balance follows, nice and crisp. Creamy and smooth.
I don't know why this beer is listed as a stout. This is not a stout or a porter, but a very good brown ale. L'chaim. LordNeuf (136) - Acton, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 16, 2004
Simplicity in it's style. Dark stout of roasted malts, with a thin coffee/chocolate finish.
