Thank you Josh for sharing this amazing bottle.
Review from notes...
Poured out looking like Texas Tea, straight oil with 2 fingers of creamy mocha colored head. Excellent retention.
The aroma on this stout was simply amazing. Huge notes of chocolate followed by roasted malt, spicy chiles, vanilla and getting some cinnamon on the back end. All of the notes are in sync with one another to make a very delicious aroma.
An explosion of flavors filled my mouth with each sip. Decadent chocolate, chewy fudge, roasted malts, vanilla bean, cinnamon and very earthy chiles with some heat backing them up. Very complex and it only gets better as it warms.
Thick, chewy but extremely smooth. Low carbonation but it's the perfect amount for this stout.
This beer was insane. Extremely complex, smooth and delicious. This one definitely backs up all of the hype that goes along with it. Can't wait to get another bottle.

Thanks for sharing, Jeff. 2009 vintage. Sampled next to the Whiskey, AB, Rum and Bourbon.
A: Pours near black with a very thin light brown head. Almost no lace. Very thick looking.
S: No super smelling but I get light notes of fudge, chocolate, and something faintly spicy (chilies).
T: Chocolate definitely dominates followed by the cinnamon. Vanilla really comes through in the finish and aftertaste, and I get a vague hint of spicy chilies throughout. The aftertaste also has light notes of coffee and a touch of sweet caramel. Overall very chocolatey with a good dose of cinnamon.
M: Thick body, low soft carbonation, and a smooth and heavy mouthfeel that is a little tingly from the chilies. The alcohol is hidden well.
O: A very unique and interesting stout. I’ve don’t think I’ve had one that quite tastes like this beer. Good use of cinnamon. This beer was better than some of the –bal aged ones in my opinion.

4.53/5 rDev -0.9%
750 mL 2011 bottle.
Pours viscous and dark black with chocolate edges. Dark mocha head, fades to a collar, with some legs. Roast and chocolate nose with strong vanilla and cinnamon and light chili heat. Flavor is similar to Zhukov, not as unique as the nose. Roast malt and char are strong with potent vanilla sweetness and dry cinnamon. Chili spice is present in the finish, but not as strong as I remember from previous samples. Full, viscous body with light carbonation and an oily finish. Smooth, balanced and complex, an exceptional american stout, duh.
