Colour is a deep black. the head is medium and has a nice light brown corlour.
The nose is deep with malt and chocolate aromas
The taste is everything the nose promises with strong taste of roasted and bitter and certain chocolate smoothness witch ends in a dry hopped aftertaste.

Shared by StFun at the Pre-Sex gathering - thanks, Josh!!! BAM, what a big nose on this oily black pour. Sometimes, you just want an imperial stout that’s more or less a face-ripper. This is more or less what you get with this beer. Slick and thick mouthfeel, with a lingering chalky palate. Roasts and bitter flavors everywhere, with some creamy chocolate smoothness easing the delivery. As intense as it is, it’s not harsh. Very well done.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Shared by someone nice at the sexual chocolate release. Pours a dark black that allows more light than i would have expected, and a head that is much darker than the beer lets on. Interesting pour. The nose is roasty, chocolate, coffee, some sweetness, a phenolic aspect to it as well, some alcohol comes through. Flavor is earthy, some grain bitterness, chocolate and coffee roast, warming, mild waxy bitterness. Warming and bitter on the palate.

Black colored with medium sized beige head. Rich aroma with roastiness dominating, vanilla and some bourbon also present. Medium to full bodied. Flavor is also strongly roasted and caramelly. Vanilla also with vinous tone, which lasts in drying and hopped aftertaste.
