If I'm reading the Julian Code right bottled on September 10th 2013.
Poured into a goblet.

A 4.5 Rough pour created about two fingers of head, which came as a light brown, what I would think of as latte. Some lacing as the glass was swirled but didn't last long.

S 4.25 A bit over boozy but at 10% abv not unexpected. Slight hint of smoke and bread but chocolate and cherries dominated.

T 4.5 As the smell indicated black cherries and dark chocolate dominated but was not overdone. A bit of smoke but not as much as the smell would leave to believe. Very low bitterness with virtually no hop presence.

M 4.5 Quite thick, just what I would expect in an imperial stout, with slight carbonation and alcohol burn on the finish.

O 4.5 The 10% abv is hidden well throughout the glass, extremely smooth. I've had a few chocolate stouts and this one is by far the best of the lot. May be because it's an older bottle but the chocolate does not seem forced as many do. Overall Freaking delicious and I'm glad I stumbled on it.

Limited Bottling - Winter '13-'14
Pours tar black with a finger of tan head that fades first to a thin cap, then to sticky lacing. Very very sticky.
The obvious chocolate in the smell, but it doesn't completely dominate, leaving room for dark fruit (berries, raisin, fig), roasted malts, burnt sugar and faint light coffee. Smells nice and rich.
Starts pretty sweet, with lots of juicy plums, cherries and raisins covered in chocolate (a bit dark, but not too much). Burnt sugar, roasted (almost charred) malts and coffee keep the sweetness in check and start bittering things up, but not before some hints of vanilla, licorice and anise are felt. Hops don't have much to say, but the finish is dry, ashy and quite bitter.
Full body, sticky, low carbonation. Booze isn't perfectly subtle, but doesn't bother. It all kinda reminds of Kahlua.
Does bring in the "chocolate", really tasty. A great imperial stout, probably even better aged for some years.
