Shared this one with Brez07, thanks to advent.

A: Deeply brown with glowing amber edges. Slight mocha head with slight retention.

S: Way more chocolate in this one than I got from regular Sexual Chocolate. Barrel has imparted some nice dessert/pastry traits. Has a certain nostalgia too it, reminds me of freshly baked cinnamon rolls I used to get as a child. Expect this is the grown version and the alcohol notes are obvious.

T: This one is more in tune with its cocoa moniker, although there's still some smokey tones from both the barrel and malts that seem to win out. Fortunately these also impart some vanilla and brown sugar flavors.

M: Creamy yet also a little thinner than you'd expect. Normally I don't dig on medium bodied imperial stouts but this one manages to still have a velvety feel.

D: I enjoyed this way more than the standard offering. Not the best barrel aged beers I've had, but probably one of the better barrel aged treatments considering the level of improvement this version has. Some nice blending as well, I'd say this was bottled ready to drink, I don't see this really going anywhere with age.
