Black black black....the head was even black... great chocolate aroma and taste....if I had to substitute chocolate milk for something else I think I would us this.... after standing outside on release day for 4 hours this was a great treat with a great meal... lives up to the hype

Pours black, with a brown head. Aroma is chocolate, roasted malt, molasses, dark fruit, coffee, and licorice. Flavor is roasted malt, somewhat bitter dark chocolate, coffee, and molasses. A nice medium to heavy body. Bottle #212/500.

Appearance: color was perfect and head was about 3in after pour and 1/2 when served. Aroma was very good raosted and cocoa bean, and toffee. Creamy to slightly thin. Good presentation to pallette and flavor. After drink hints of chocolate remained. Pleased overall.

Draft at Foothills on Release day. Black with nice braown head. Aroma has lots of sweetness, coffee and some chocolate raostedness. The flavor is rich with a great balance betwwent eh sweet and hop bitterness. Good full bodied feel. Bought 4 bottles and looking forward to sitting down with it for a more detailed session. Lucky me;)

Opaque in color with a finger sized dark brown head that holds it’s shape well. Smells of black molassas and chocolate. The flavor is of rich dark chocolate, roasted malts, molassas and licorice. Thick mouthfeel but silky smooth. This is only the second beer that stained the glass after it was empty. The other being Dark Lord. Way to easy to drink as the abv is not noticable. Had on-tap at the release.

wickedpete (634) - Lexington Park, Maryland, USA - FEB 2, 2008
Dark black with a creamy brown head leaving streaky lacing down the glass. Sweet, chocolate, and licorice aroma. Chocolate brownie flavor backed up by a slight roast character and bitter finish. Quite thick and chewy. I wish I could drink this all the time.

On tap at Sexual Chocolate Day, at a fine meal in the company of The Beer Cellar, TurdFerguson, and several other estimable folks from various sites. Having missed this on local taps last year, I was ready by this point to be let down after all the hype. Nope, this stuff rocks hard. Very thick pour, just like I like it; can’t see even a sliver of light through the snifter. A big body with substantial aroma, and it tastes even better. Not so much chocolate in the taste to me, though it’s there in the smooth finish. What I get is a LOT of dark roast coffee and that molasses is definitely in there strongly. The combination of flavors reminds me a bit of the Abyss, actually. Compares very favorably. Kudos to Foothills!

Draft at Tyler’s. Pitch black with a nice tan head and heavy lacing. Intense aroma of chocolate, rich black coffee, and sugar. Excellently balanced flavors...roasted nuts, dark chocolate, nice sweetness, and a little alcohol. Actually there’s surprisingly little alcohol on the flavor and the finish for a beer that’s this strong. It goes down as smooth as many well made stouts with half the strength. Lovely stuff...now if only I could get more of it somehow.

Foothills Sexual Chocolate Stout Bottle. Courtesy of Papsoe [Great two day tasting session @ Papsoe] Large reddish brown thick creamy head that mostly stuck to the glass. Pitch black color. Excellent lacework. The initial sniff came chocolate, sweet coffee, roasted malt, vinous feel, dried fruit mix. Over the palate amazing complex chocolate, liquorish, roasted malt, grain, plums and date. Quit complex. Full bodied with an average carbonation and thick texture light alcoholic texture. Heavy sweet flavor with counter bitter notes. Lingering chocolate and complex malt note finish. Wow that was extremely nice! Once again Papsoe delivers on every tasting! 8 / 4 / 9 / 4 / 17 = 4.2

RB#2700: Handbottled, thanks to Papsoe for pulling this out. Pours dark brown with a lacing mild chocolate brown head. Thick chocolate malty aroma with a mild note of dried fruit. Dark chocolate flavoured, solid bitterness. Finish lingers with a solid dark chocolate and a really heavy bitterness. Chocolate and bitterness overload - brilliant.
