Had on tap at Duckworth's in Ballentine in Charlotte, NC. Pours black with a nice brown head. Great roasty aroma also may be a touch of coffee as well. taste of dark chocolate, coffee, dark malts may be some espresso. Very well balanced and a very well done beer to say the least. Its definitely thick with pretty good carbonation. Overall I love this beer and if you can get your hands on I would recommend at least trying it.

2013 22oz Bomber poured into a snifter

First time having the Sexual Chocolate...a virgin if you will. Big thanks to CarolinaKevin for the bottles!

Nice pour...viscous jet black with a 2 finger dark tan head which slowly dissipates to a lasting foam ring. Looks very nice...among the best I've seen.

The aroma lacks a bit from what I expected to be honest....really was looking for BIG strong chocolate notes but was only hit with slight chocolate, molasses, and some ethanol.

Here we go...the flavor really makes up for what the aroma was lacking. Lots of dark chocolate, caramel, toffee, coffee, dark malts, bitterness from both hops and cocoa. Very nice and well balanced!

The mouth feel is where I feel that this beer really shines...viscous and sweet at first but finishes light with a bit of ethanol. The carbonation is perfect...I hate over carbonated stouts but this one's where it should be.

When I think of my favorite (non-barrel aged) imperial stouts, Founders is on the top of the list, but this one is a serious contender...it may even took first place! Really a great stout that could use a bit more aroma, but ultimately satisfying my Jungle Fever!

Poured from a bomber into a Westbrook tulip.

A: Pitch black, motor oil-esque pour with fantastic 2 finger dark khaki colored head. Head dropped from 2 fingers to 1 after a few minutes but stuck around pretty well after that. Beautiful lacing.

S: A lot of chocolate and coffee on the nose. Maybe a little of booze? Smells about like you would expect.

T: Espresso, bitter dark chocolate, maybe a little molasses? There is the bitterness you would expect from a RIS, but it's not overdone. This is a plus in my book. It's still a sipper, but it doesn't feel work to put it down.

M: Full bodied, medium carbonation. Some creaminess and moderately dry finish.

O: One of the more drinkable RIS's I've had. I'm glad the chocolate wasn't overdone, but I wish there was just a little bit more in the flavor. It's a very good RIS in my mind, but would have been a little better with a little more chocolate given the name of the beer. Maybe it's not the best RIS ever, but it's still a very good beer in my mind and worth a try if you run across one.

4.05/5  rDev -1.7%

Had on tap.

Appearance is ptich black with a fairly thick dark brown head.

Tons of dark chocolate and dark roasted coffee on the aroma. Some notes of burnt caramel and toffee as well.

More roast on the flavor along with espresso and dark chocolate. Some hints of dark fruit although this is buried pretty deep below the chocolate, coffee, and caramel. A lot of sweetness with this beer with a pretty heavy body. Definitely a sipper.

Overall, this is a good beer but I am not blown away by it. I really enjoy the chocolate and coffee flavors but it is just a little on the heavy side.
