look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Consumed 4/6/13

Appearance: Jet black at its core, with some dark brown around the edges - big, light tan head - keeps a nice cap - leaves some spots of lacing

Smell: Roasty, burnt, and big - dark chocolate, cocoa, chocolate malts - burnt, with a touch of char - something that smells a bit woody, kind of like this was barrel-aged (except it's not) - nicely rich

Taste: Yup, sexy - a range of chocolate flavors - dark chocolate and burnt cocoa - some burnt coffee - a nice, moderate level of sweetness, with a touch of burnt molasses and toffee - some burnt and charred bitterness - lightly acidic overall, finishes very dry

Mouthfeel: On the heavy side of medium, nicely carbonated, very dry finish

Overall: (Insert sex joke here)

This is an undoubtedly solid RIS. There are some nice chocolate flavors, and a lot of burnt goodness. This was better than expected.

Thanks to Eli323232 for the bottle. Split with angrybabboon.

Appearance: Pours a creamy near black. Head is tan, creamy, and thick. Drops to.a small rocky cap with a slightly larger collar. Thin sheets and notches of lacing. Relatively clear.

Smell: Tons of chocolate. Bitter cocoa with a strong milk chocolate sweetness. Grassy chocolate and roasted malt. Some backing caramel sweetness. Fudgey. Dark chocolate cake complete with frosting. Baker's chocolate. Husky grain. Sweet and rich.

Taste: So much chocolate. Milk chocolate sweetness, bitter cocoa and baker's chocolate. Nice punch of dark chocolate. Sweet like lactose. Boozy dark hot chocolate. Creamy is a flavor right? Some dark fruit, mostly raisin with a touch of cherry skin in the back. Light touch of alcohol on the finish. Gritty unrefined chocolate. Some touches of roasted coffee bean. Nicely roasted. Solidly balanced.

Mouthfeel: Creamy and smooth. A touch of backing gritty cocoa. Body runs slightly higher than medium with a moderate to low carbonation.

Overall: Chocolate sex potion.

Better than anticipated. A nice use of everything chocolate. Sweet and bitter and worth the name. I'm looking forward to a cellared bottle.

January 2012 Release

Thanks to my mother-in-law for saving this one to share with me on Easter.

A: Pours an opaque yet clear jet black in color with some light amounts of visible carbonation and some light to moderate dark brown, amber, and cola colored highlights. The beer has a half finger tall creamy dark tan head that slowly reduces to a small patch of extremely thin film and a very thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of dark chocolate over the top of roasted malts. There are some very light hints of anise and dark fruit but the primary aroma is that of the chocolate.

T: Upfront there is a light amount of dark roasted malts that is quickly overtaken by the strong flavors of dark unsweetened chocolate (like the bars you get that are 60%+ pure cacao). There are some very light hints of anise and coffee. Very light amounts of bitterness that does not linger for too long.

M: Just shy of heavy bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth and creamy.

O: Very easy to drink and very enjoyable - the alcohol is very well hidden and there is a wonderful complexity to the balance. Overall the beer is well balanced by being neither too sweet nor too bitter. Very excited to finally review this one.

sexual chocolate is a great name. i like the smell... smells creamy. and i like black beers and this one is really dark. the taste is nutty and woody.. i dont get much chocolate. its earthy. i have had better chocolate beers..(imperial mokah from southern tier and chocolate yeti from great divide). my biggest problem with this beer was the $16.50 price tag for a 22oz. this is a good beer.... dont get me wrong, but there are better beers for the price.
