Thanks goes out to cvstrickland for this brew.

22oz. Bomber

Pours a very nice black color, very nice carbonation, with a very nice one-finger creamy tan head, with some nice small islands and thich creamy sticky lacing left behind. The nose is malty with lots of chocolate/toffee, slight roast note. The taste is awesome, malty, sweet, with some dark fruits, some vanilla, slight roast note. Medium/Full body, smooth. Very drinkable, what an awesome brew, so glad I finally got a chance to try it, Thanks Chuck!

This is an exceptional beer, but not worth getting up on a saturday, and waiting in line for. Kegs get to places other than the brewery, and you can enjoy the beer in the comfort of your favorite stool!

The beer is super dark, and the head is a dirty bone white

The smell is phenomenal, and is surpassed solely by the taste of this beer. the ABV is high, and while you can taste this it's not the most present taste, the chocolate, and hints of oak are what leave your lips as you lower your beer.
Warning, dont drink 2 and post!

Oh my, this is some tasty stuff. Pours a near black color with a creamy brown head. Huge nose of chocolate, coffee and sweet fruity malts. Taste follows suit. Lots of chocolate over a very nice stout. Chocolate is well balanced. Creamy body goes down well. Delicious. Anyone want to trade for a bottle of this?

Review # 200

Served on-tap at Foothills Brewery in Winston-Salem, NC during the 2010 Sexual Chocolate release into a Foothills Brewing Signature glass at the appropriate temperature (02/05/10). This review is for the 2010 batch.

A: Pours nearly black with a motor oil quality capped off with a finger of a tan head that dissolves to a foam and leaves some patchy and sticky lacing.

S: Wonderful aroma of milk chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, graham cracker, and some espresso/coffee. Hints of toffee and caramel are found as well.

T: The taste follows the nose and I must say that this is quite a tasty beverage. Milk chocolate, cocoa, and roasted malt highlight the profile along with layers of graham cracker, coffee, espresso, toffee, and some caramel. Wonderfully balanced and extremely complex.

M: Full-bodied with appropriate creamy carbonation. Thick at times, but never syrupy.

D: I could drink this all day long and it is so well-crafted and expertly balanced. The 10% is not found in the taste at all.

Overall I must say that is an exceptional Imperial Stout from Foothills and one that is deserving of its great praise. This was tasted at my first ever beer release and it did not disappoint. Great brewery, run by great people and producing some great beer! My Highest Recommendation.

Had this beer on the release weekend. I have to say that it was one of the best Stouts I have ever had. The glassware was proper and added appeal to the visual aspect upon arrival. The nose was outstanding but is was pinnacled by flavor and character. A long clean finish of roasted sweet chocolate and espresso approachable for beginner but sturdy enough for the aficionado. Congrats to the brewer. It was apparently sold out in bottle form and they were running so low that they could not fill growlers.

See ya next weekend!

Had one day after 2010 release.

A-very dark brown, redish tint when held up to the light, very fine light brown head

S-chocolate, cocoa nibs, slight coffee flavor

T-smooth, a little bitterness, chalky but a very nice finish

M-chalky leaves a lasting chocolate/expresso flavor in the mouth

D-a little to easy to drink it'll catch up with you quick

I've been wanting to try this one for quite a while so big thanks to kp for opening a bottle at the Brick Store.

This one pours pitch black, with no light coming through at all. The tan head is small and bubbly and leaves good lacing.

This is one of the best aromas I've had in a beer. It's sweet, like malted milk balls - dark malts with sweet chocolate on top. There is dark fruit and hints of coffee as well.

The taste is fantastic as well with a huge roasted malt backbone that is extremely well balance by generous milk chocolate and dark fruit sweetness. The finish actually has a slight espresso bitterness, but only as a complementary piece of this complex brew.

The mouthfeel is so smooth, but with ample carbonation that helps coat the mouth completely in the semi-sweet goodness.

I am thoroughly impressed with this beer and would rate it among my favorite imperial stouts. I may be slightly biased to the sweeter side of things, but either way this is a world class beer. Thanks again to kp for sharing this one.

Bottle 184 of 500 - Big thanks to drunkmonk for the opportunity. Cheers, Joel!

Pours an opaque brown color with a huge foamy dark tan head that fades fairly quickly. Spotty patterns of Belgian lacing in it's wake. The smell from beneath the cap is Hersey Syrup chocolaty goodness, from the pour a wonderful distinct dark fruit character comes through and hints of vanilla. As it warms you get more of a cherry vanilla barrel aged treatment. The initial mouthful is conditioned by the rush of alcohol. The fire is dampened nicely by the full bodied rich chocolate flavor dispensed in a silky creaminess. Big chocolate flavor mixed with the fruity taste of a barrel age treatment. Finishes with a chewy semisweet maltiness that lingers appropriately. Way too easy to drink. This one is labeled 9.75% ABV. Integrated well, has a really nice complexity that's a kick to consider. I never know where the line falls between a RIS and a Double Stout, but this is what i think a Double Stout is shooting for. Really nice effort. Highly recommended.

Bottle # 181/500

Pours black like an overdue oil change. Brown head falls quickly to a ring around my glass. Strong roasty smell of chocolate and coffee. Some pine and licorice aromas were also detected. The first initial sip, I tasted flavors of dark chocolate followed by black coffee. Finishes with a bit of crisp citrusy hops. Some bitter chocolate lingers. Alcohol is barley noticeable, just some slight warming in my chest. Mouthfeel is creamy, smooth and slightly heavy. Overall, drinkability is fantastic. I would agree this Imperial Stout lives up to the hype. Highly recommended!

Bottle 258/500, shared with balberts after getting it in trade from Shuajw. Thanks again.

A - Thick and black, little to no head, quite viscous as it pours.

S - Roasted barley, not as much chocolate as I would have expected.

T - Nice, complex smokeyness complimenting notes of sweetness and chocolate near the end. Leaves a bit of a bitter aftertaste.

M - Slightly carbonated, thick and smooth.

D - I'm not sure this is even relevant here, as the chances of following the first bottle with the second are almost none...

This is a great, complex stout that I wish I could get more of. I am glad I had the opportunity to try this from this brewing. There was a lot of hype surrounding this beer, and I think I can honestly say that it has earned at least most of it. Thanks again for the bottle Josh.
