3.32/5  rDev -19.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

The label says February 2016
ALC 9.6% BY VOL
SRM: 53
IBU: 75

Appearance: The body is black and the head is a very short cap with a light brown color. The head doesn't last long and fades into a ring.

Aroma: There is a clear aroma of chocolate. To be specific it smells more like a brownie than something like raw bakers chocolate. The aroma has a sweet smell to it which is very nice. Alcohol is present on the nose which isn't a bad thing given the 9.6% but it is there.

Taste: Right up front there is this slightly bitter charred flavor with a touch of alcohol. It robs the front of the palate of any sweetness that might be there. The alcohol presence again is fairly strong and I'm not really getting any chocolate taste. It tastes a lot like an average Imperial Stout. There is a bit of a woody character in the aftertaste of the beer which is nice but the overall flavor profile makes me miss the chocolate that is present in the aroma.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied beer with a slightly off-dry and bitter finish.

Overall: It's pretty much like your average boozy Imperial Stout. It's good and it is an enjoyable stout but it's hard to be sold on a beer that says "Sexual Chocolate" and doesn't deliver any chocolate flavor.

Look: It pours black with a dark brown head that has some lacing.

Smell: It has strong chocolate aromas with coffee, roasted malts, and hints of hops.

Taste: There are strong flavors of chocolate, roasted flavors, floral hops,dark fruits, and coffee.

Feel: It has a heavy texture to it and has a strong aftertaste.

Overall: This is a strong example of a Russian Imperial Strong with strong aromas, strong flavors of chocolate and malts, and a rich, heavy feel with a quality bitter aftertaste.

Ewey, gooey, chocolate goodness. The aroma of cocoa is very evident, as is the delicious malt. This a very dark, rich, thick brew that grabs your taste buds with surprisingly dry taste. I was very impressed.
