2013 bottle, poured into Sexual Chocolate teku glass

A- pours pitch black with a small light tan creamy head that reduces to a ring, leaving just a few patches of lace

S- prominent barrel aroma with bourbony oak, sweet molasses, toffee, fig & raisin and a hint of vanilla

T- bourbon and oak up front that compliments the base beer very well, really bringing out the molasses flavor. Good chocolaty base with dark fruit notes, leading to a finish of oak, bourbon and vanilla

M- medium body and carbonation, foamy mouthfeel that leads to a smooth and slightly warming finish, abv is hidden pretty well

O- the bourbon is nearly perfectly integrated with an already solid base beer. I wasn't blown away by the original Sexual Chocolate, but I was really impressed by this version

Not sure on the vintage. Stout-like appearance, black and opaque, with a nice cap of dark brown head that retained as a ringlet, leaving a few streaks on the glass, dabbed with light lacing. Roasty dark malts in the aroma, dark chocolate, bourbon and vanilla. In the taste, good blend of bourbon/vanilla/coconut sweetness and chocolaty/malty roastiness, with neither really taking dominance, lesser notes of coffee, cocoa bitterness, and toasted oak, slight hop presence in the finish. Medium-full body, smooth, not too hot, quite drinkable. I didn't really think this was too distinctive in the world of barrel-aged stouts, but what it was, was a good and tasty beer overall. A major improvement over the rather lack-luster regular version.
