look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Arrives at the bar with an almost black color and the darkest head I have ever seen on a stout; not much lacing, however, which might have been due to the pour as much as the beer itself

Smell: The best part of the beer with a distinct aroma of tropical dark chocolate flavor; I bought my wife an assortment of 75% single origin chocolates from Chocosphere for Valentine's Day and this smells just like those bars taste

Taste: Dark chocolate flavors caress that palate from the start; after the swallow the roasted bitterness creeps under the covers and the two sensations couple to the climax

Mouthfeel: Thick body with moderate carbonation; a really hot finish

Drinkability: Rather determined toward its goal, this libation is lucious and titillating but it's just a bit too hot for me to handle; next time I'll return to the safer zone of the Total Eclipse Stout

Served on tap at Foothills 2.11.2007.

This is Foothills Valentine's Day release (actually released before V Day but I assume the release date and V Day are not purely coincidental, given the name).

Pours a beautiful black color with a perfectly chocolate colored head of a substantial size. Head is fluffy and full of body. Beer is completely opaque and is quite viscous. ABV is around 10% but the alcohol is very well hidden.

Tons of chocolate in the aroma and flavor. I could see where the name came from as the aphrodisiacal quality is certainly noticeable with all of the chocolate flavors and aromas here. Nice hop presence as well.

I could drink this stuff all night. Mouthfeel is not quite full bodied but it certainly is typical of an imperial stout. ABV very well hidden for an impy stout. This was a wonderful beer and certainly able to be enjoyed by you and your sweetie.
