750ml 2013 bottle poured into tulip 14/12/13, REVIEW # 2000!!!! I hope this ones worthy of such a milestone, big Cheers to the most awesome Rutager for the bottle
A black liquid right out of the bottle, just a thumbnail of cola for an edge when held to the light, shes dark alright, even the foams dark, three fingers worth falls after a few sips leaving no lace much to my surprise, second pours no different with nothing sticking
S bakers chocolate, coco, a little char, chilli peppers, cinnamon sticks, peppermint, molasses, faint vanilla, a little espresso, smells a little woody but I as far as I know this isn't barreled, just a hint of booze and plenty more chocolate
T some unburnt cigarette tobacco, (yes I've actually tasted a ciggy...don't ask questions!) strange fruity notes I can't quite place, and everything I smell, rich as all hell and the booze is gone, terrific stuff!!
M faint heat builds but never really accumulates to much, thick liquid, mellow carbonation stops short of creamy, peppers and chocolate syrup just keep going on the finish, and my lips almost stick together
O before this hit my glass I was impressed, the second I cracked the bottle I could smell the chocolate and I could see the darkness before the stream out of the bottle hit my glass, sexy at every turn
I almost feel guilty drinking this one by myself, "almost" being the operative word, quite worthy of the 2000 milestone. The warming chilli works great with this Alberta Winter evening but I couldn't imagine drinking this in the hot humidity of Florida

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.
