brokensail (10547) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 10, 2010
A: The pour is a dark brown color, nearly black, with a finger’s worth of tan head. S: Lots of roasted malts, vanilla, and chocolate. The bourbon provides a nice booze note and some oak, too. T: The roasted character is quite intense on the palate, giving off an almost charred flavor. Underneath there is a good chocolate flavor, some hints of caramel and vanilla, and bourbon. M: The body is a little on the thin side from an imperial stouts. A moderate carbonation to go with it. D: A pretty nice imperial stout, though I would have actually preferred a bit more bourbon character (surprisingly).

Lubiere (9734) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 4, 2011
A deep dark stout with a thin brown head. In aroma, a smooth musky chocolate, light soy sauce, a bit salty, not bad. In mouth, a nice smooth and bitter chocolate, with toasted coffee beans, not very bourbon barrel-like but good nonetheless. On tap at Brewvival, Feb. 26 2011.

Cask Stillage from the Jug at the Denver Rare Beer Tasting, Wynkoop Brewery 25/09/2009 Big vanilla and some woody aroma. Beige head. Black very smooth on the palate and strong in alcohol with a little bitterness in a crisp and very dry coffee roast finish.

daknole (8856) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 15, 2010
LCBS 2010. Dark brown pour, rich tan head. Aroma is pure on top shelf bourbon, vanill and chocolate. Light roast. Flavor is creamy, sweet bourbon, rich oak, vanilla and toffee. Another beauty.

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 6, 2011
Served on draft at Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA on 5/26/11. Pours a dark brown color with a large creamy brown head. Good head retention and lacing. Huge whisky notes in the aroma. Almost too much. Also some chocolate, maple, and a faint bitter hop finish. The taste is roasted malts, nutty notes, whisky, chocolate and a leafy hop finish. Medium bodied.

Growler thanks to womencantsail. Pours with a black body and a small tan head. Aroma is chalky, dry, estery with some alcohol. Taste is barrel, some alcohol, vanilla and chocolate. A bit of wood tannins. Lively bubbles, medium bodied. Good.

Thorpe429 (5012) - , Illinois, USA - APR 13, 2011
Reviewed from notes. On tap at the Sexual Chocolate release in February 2010. Poured into my mini snifter. Color is black with a tan head and a touch of lacing. The nose brings some really nice notes from the bourbon-barrel aging, with bourbon, oak, and vanilla coming through along with some chocolate and roast. Taste is mostly bourbon and chocolate in a really nice combination. Good heavy feel. I preferred this to Sexual Chocolate and was really glad to have tried it. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 11-11-2010

nimbleprop (4536) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 9, 2010
Several pints at Sexual Chocolate Day 2010. Pours a watery, opaque black with a thin, slightly beige head. Aroma is mild, nutty, vanilla, milk chocolate as things warmed up. Flavor is very well balanced, sweet, vanilla, bourbon, wood, a little coffee, a little brown sugar, again more milk chocolate when it warmed up. Finish is sweet and smooth. This was really well balanced but honestly needed to come to room temperature to show what it really had.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 12, 2010
On draft at Sexy Choc day. Thick and oily looking, with a medium creamy head. Aroma just a bit too boozy, slightly obscuring the full roasted scent that I enjoy so much in the regular version. Slick mouthfeel, a bit thin, and mild bitterness on the palate. Enjoyable and warming but not quite complex enough for me.
