Evil Twin 'Even More Jesus' Imperial Stout

Evil Twin Even More Jesus Imperial Stout 1
Evil Twin Brewing 'Even More Jesus' Imperial Stout. 12% abv. Dense black color. Finger of creamy mocha head, like melted ice cream. Outstanding retention and superb lacing. Nose of dark chocolate, roasted dark malt, black coffee, wood notes. Aroma of red wine emerges as the temp rises.

Front taste of bittersweet chocolate, molasses, dark fruit, vanilla ribbon underneath. Aftertaste is rich chocolate milk, emerging red wine, sweet bread, alcohol bite on the sustain with a dry finish. Full body. Mouthfeel is hot, creamy, thick, syrupy, astringent.

This is an outstanding beer, an imperial stout with an unquestionably full body and rich dense mouthfeel. The alcohol is high, but doesn't show its presence at first. Its astringent taste steps forward only after the temp rises to room and the volatiles in the head have simmered down. 

Imagine a chocolate milkshake made with chunks of dark chocolate, vanilla ice cream, a shot of Chambord, a splash of Cabernet Sauvignon, and a shot of espresso, served in a wooden cup. Wonderful, perfectly crafted beer. Strongly recommended.

From the brewery:

"A few times in the history of craft beer it has happened that a highly praised beer rises beyond mortal stardom into a higher godly league. Usually the recipe to make such heavenly drops is thick fudge-like body, pitch black color, amazingly overwhelming aromas of chocolate, coffee, dark fruits and muscovado sugar, obviously only made in limited amounts and most crucial of all - it must taste rare!"
