Even More Jesus

Even More Jesus is, at 12% alcohol, a beefy imperial stout. It's produced by Evil Twin Brewing, a Danish outfit, in Stratford, Connecticut. Sold in austere pint cans (instead of Evil Twin's typically ostentatious and awesome ones), this bad boy lets the beer inside do the talking.

This brew looks like a frothy cup of espresso--deepest brown and topped with a thick tan head. It has a nose that is curiously understated, but rather complex. There are aromatic notes of roasted malts, leather, dried fruit, and cocoa. The flavour combines a lot of similar elements--leather, raisin, roasted malt, and chocolate--with a huge dose of boozy heat.

Yet another gift from KC, to whom I'll always raise a glass. I thought this beer was damned impressive. It has outsized flavour, but manages a refined profile. Also, for such a strong ale, this imperial stout was miraculously not over-sweet.

Rating: 9.0 out of 10.
