Bottled Feb. 2016. Poured into a snifter.

Looks like a dark colored chocolatey stout. Big foamy head, nice lacing.

Smells like chocolate and coffee, but not overly great though. Average nose.

Taste is solid, but not really sexual chocolate as it implies.

Thick mouth feel with long finish.

Overall it's not worth the hype or the price. At $19 a bottle I don't recommend. The label is dope, the name is dope, but the beer is just good.

Black pour with brown head. Slight hint of chocolate and coffee. Nice on palate with lingering of coffee on the backside. Very nice beer.

Revisiting this beer on 4/17/17. Bomber from February 2017 poured into a tulip! Jet black with a inch of tan head that eventually fades, lacing that rings when consumed. Smells of rich roasted malts, big chocolate nose, dark fruit, and coffee. The taste is mostly roasted malts and chocolate in a positive way! The feel is full and slick with a bit in the end. Overall I enjoyed this beer, a year ago I had it on tap and I got soy sauce, this bomber from February 2017 is very delicious. Cheers

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.
