There is a new variant of Evil Twin Brewing’s Even More Jesus on the way that promises to be sweeter than anything that has come before.
The beer is Even More Jesus Bourbon Maple Syrup Barrel Aged, a 12 percent ABV imperial stout aged in BLiS Gourmet bourbon-flavored maple syrup barrels. The original version of the imperial stout was first released by the Brooklyn, N.Y.-based company in 2012.
This is not the first time that Evil Twin has aged one of its beers in Blis barrels, after it announced that Michigan Maple Jesus would be released sometime this summer and it has also teased a version of its Imperial Biscotti Break that uses the barrels as well.
According to a label filed with the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), Even More Jesus Bourbon Maple Syrup Barrel Aged will be packaged in 22-ounce bottles at Mount Pleasant, S.C.-based Westbrook Brewing Co.
In an email, Jeppe Jarnit-Bjergsø, owner of Evil Twin, told Tenemu that the beer is still in barrels, and that it is not scheduled to be released for at least “3-4 months.”
