Sexual chocolate

Pours pitch black with a thin layer of brown head that is quick to dissipate. Spotty lacing.

The nose is full of bakers chocolate, dominating the nostrils. There is some roasted malt working it's way around. Quite inviting.

The flavors bring notes of semi-sweet chocolate and roasted malts. The chocolate is smooth and delicious. This is a mighty fine brew.

The mouthfeel is silk-like and.velvety. Heavy and full-bodied. Light carbonation.

Overall, awesome beer that lives up to the hype. Great chocolate flavors here.

A: poured a dark as night black in color with a nice finger worth of head which was dark brown and left plenty of lacing sticking to the glass.

S: not too much going on in the aroma, pretty basic components such as roastiness, some chocolate notes, maybe a hint of molasses and very muted coffee undertones. I did however get some oat grains coming through.

T: like the aroma it carried over to the flavor consisting of milk chocolate notes, slight coffee was noticeable, a bit of roastiness, hints of molasses, and nice oat grain accents with a little bitterness.

M: the brew was medium in body with a fair amount of carbonation which had a sweet, roasty, slight astringent, oat grainy, milky, and slight bitter finish.

O: just an average imperial stout that is IMO way overrated but just OK all around. Didn't see anything special about it.
