Beer of the week

SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The first week of classes is mercifully drawing to a close, so it seems appropriate that the summer's first Daily Iowan beer of the week is Evil Twin Brewing's hilariously named Even More Jesus.

The Denmark-brewed imperial stout smells almost like soy sauce — it's sweet and salty, with subtle notes of chocolate and day-old coffee.

Even More Jesus looks like soy sauce, too; it pours jet-black, with a thin, tan head.

But the beer is considerably more drinkable than the Japanese sushi standard, especially considering its substantial 12 percent alcohol by volume. The brew is full-bodied and somewhat oily, with light carbonation, and it starts sweet before melting into a dark, bitter chocolaty finish.

Pick up a bottle soon, though — the brewer brags about the beer's rarity on its label, and no collection of funny beer bottles is complete without Even More Jesus.
