Opaque poor with a thick brown creamy head. I bet this is why they named the beer “Sexual Chocolate”. Gorgeous beer that actually looks ummmm “sexual”.
Heavy chocolate malt aroma with faint hint of alcohol. This beer is delicious. One if the best I’ve ever had. Sweet rich dark chocolate with a hint of alcohol on the back end. Thick creamy mouthfeel. Foothills you nailed it with this beer. Certainly a beer everyone should try at least once.

An old vintage. Beer exudes a ton of cocoa and stands up to time. Not overly aromatic or thick but contends extremely well as I tick this stout even if its 10 years old.

Picked up a single from TW-Greenville, SC 7-27-22 for $4.49. Guessing it was bottled in February 2022; consumed 11-29-22.

Beer poured black with a very nice tan head that has some great hang time.

Nose has hints of roasted malts, cocoa, and coffee. Develops the more it warms.

Taste is a larger malt base that is medium to heavy roast that emits notes of coffee. Cocoa addition along with a pretty substantial hop addition balance each other out. Finishes very roasty and dry.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and smooth.

Overall better than i thought it would be given the name. This is a heavily roasted and hopped beer and not necessarily a dessert stout.

Had on tap at the Foothills Brewpub. Pours a deep black color with a thin off white colored head that leaves a little lacing down the glass. Smells of deep roasted malts, hints of chocolate, coffee, and a hint of caramel / brown sugar sweetness at the end. Tastes excellent, nice roasted malt, chocolate taste and a bit of caramel at the end. Smooth, rich, full bodied, perfect amount of carbonation, feels lighter than it is. Overall, this is an excellent rendition of the style and one I would come back to.

Rich dark chocolate flavor balanced on a nicely structured dry malt backbone. Thick, lacey finish.

Dark brown, approaching black, with three fingers of foamy, dark khaki head. Decent retention gives way to thick rings of lacing.

Dry cocoa, umami, a hint of plum and a good whiff of carbon dioxide in the nose.

Bitter baker’s chocolate, plum, roasty umami and toasted malt in the taste. Dark and fairly bitter.

Thin bodied for an imperial stout these days. Lightly creamy (milky?) with fairly strong carbonation.

Nice dark flavors in this one, but with an underwhelming feel and more carbonation off-gassing than I like.

Bought a 22 oz at Kroger's on sale. Sunday afternoon porch lunch with the DW! Some flavors and sharpness that we can't place. It is robust. Really wouldn't say anything chocolate here, though. It is roasty, though. To me, it's an odd stoney taste. Not overly sweet for an imperial. Great color, and the head is beautiful in darkness. A lot of time seemed to go into making this one, though. It is rich and complex in many ways.

Black opaque with a half finger of rusty beige head.

Smells of molasses, dark chocolate, and taffy.

Tastes of taffy, black strap molasses, licorice, and maybe chocolate.

Medium, highly frothy body, with lots of carbonation. Very light feel for the ABV.

I've been waiting for 6 years to try this Jan 2020 version. Very disappointed. It has the name, and a decent mouth feel, but other than that, I'm not really digging it. $16.99 a bottle! I got it in Asheville, NC and am drinking it in Clyde, June 14th, 2020.

Had a 2016 (10th anniversary) bomber bottle in April 2020. I thought it was outstanding.
