Bottle 1/3/2013 poured into Hunahpu glass
Thanks to LiquidDegenerate for this bottle
Pour: Black as ever with a half finger dark brown head. Really no lacing noted.
Smell: Dark chocolate brownie. Some char. Vanilla and ever so faint cinnamon. A touch of coffee way in the back. As I let this warm the chile notes are just starting to peek out.
Taste: Massive amount of dark chocolate up front. A sweetness that I assume is from the vanilla. Cinnamon is there and as it warms the spice from the chile is more prominent.
Mouthfeel: This is a coat your mouth full bodied beer. Thick, chewy and viscous. Carbonation is low.
Overall: This is one huge beer that is best shared. A massive stout that as it warmed became more and more enjoyable. The cold hid almost all aspects of this beer but as I sipped it became a completely different beer.

Pours pitch black, bubbling up a great one finger dark brown head, lingers for a while until it turns to a thick sticky lacing.
Huge cocoa in the smell, lots of cinnamon and vanilla, milky and dark chocolate, fig, raisin, veggie chilli pepper, lower coffee notes, faint wood. The smell is incredible, with just a small hint of booze.
Roasty robust taste, huge with dark chocolate, riddled with dry plums and figs, spicy with a lot of woody cinnamon, rich vanilla, even faint licorice. Mellows down and gets a bit sweeter, with sticky molasses and toffee, only to be balanced perfectly in the end with some roasted coffee, dark malts and faint smoked woodiness. The chillies bring a nice warm prickle in the back of the throat, just enough so you know they're there. Taste really brings up all that's written on the label, amplified, rich and perfectly balanced.
Thick body, very smooth, with a very tiny bit of booze present, nowhere near disturbing. Full complex aftertaste, extra roasty.
A huge imperial stout, unique, worth any effort and future budget-hole to get again.
