Grovlam (4154) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 13, 2008
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.

GABF. First beer of the event. Was actually running for Utopias, but this caught my eye. First and favorite actually. Dark pour with nice head. Lots of roasty coffee in the aromas. Flavor was more coffee, and crazy amounts of nice sweet chocolate. Very Very Good.

ChainGangGuy (4386) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - OCT 21, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 16, 2009 Appearance: Pours a near-black body with a thin, tan-colored head. Smell: Roasted malt aroma with full notes of melted semi-sweet chocolate, dark caramel, and nuts. Taste: Rich, roasty semi-sweet chocolate taste with hints of anise and molasses. Faint taste of peanut butter. Moderate acidity. Some grassy hops and light notes of coffee appear near the bittersweet finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. A mouthfeel as lusciously smooth as the name implies. Drinkability: Highly recommended, it’s a very tasty RIS from the folks over at Foothills. Kudos for hiding that 10% abv, too!
