Thank you so much to sliffy and ogglethorp for working this out. The aroma of this one was actually better than the beer itself. I got rich coffee and dark chocolate notes from it and was pretty excited for the follow through in taste. I didnít pick up as much of the coffee, and only a slight bit of toffee but I did get a blast of bitter cocoa. Great beer, but I even like Founders Breakfast better.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I have the opportunity to try this treat thanks to brentk56, thanks a million Brent! Sexual Chocolate produces a bit of a gurgle when poured from the glass. The thick body appears midnight black and is one of those stouts that actually suck in the light and make the room darker. The soft pour produced an ample two + finger mocha colored head that fell painfully slow to a thick cap and left solid spots of lacing on its way. The lacing and head are quite impressive for such a big beer.
The aroma is quite different than I expected. I expected a lot of chocolate/cocoa but my nose is greeted with bold dark fruits, some ripe and some not. Thereís a handful of blackberries right off the bat, half of which I would say are under ripe. Sweet sugary molasses plays a big role in the nose as well showing throughout. A quick flash of coffee rolls through the middle before the underlying cocoa shows itself faintly. A ghost like vanilla quality shows up here and there to add depth to the aroma but the dark berries rule the roost. There is a clean alcohol that seems to accentuate the berriness even more.
The flavor seems to follow the nose fairly closely. Dark fruits (most noticeably blackberry) lead the way drizzled with molasses for a little added sweetness. A roasted, almost scorched, maltiness grows on the back of the tongue along with a piney, aspirin like bitterness. The cocoa that was added is much more noticeable on the tongue then in the nose. Itís faint upfront but grows as Sexual Chocolate works its way through my mouth and combines with the roasty and hoppy bitterness on the swallow to even things out a bit. Maybe Iím being picky because I really do enjoy the flavor but the flavors on the finish seem to be out of place and struggling against each other.
When this beer is a little on the colder side the body seems a bit thin but as it nears room temperature things fit into place. The body is still a touch light at first but quickly becomes thick and velvety as it works itís way through my mouth. The bitterness grows as I continue to drink causing my tongue to feel the numbness to the point it even moves out to my lips over time.
This is an easy drinking beer and my glass is going down awfully easy. I can see this beer wearing me out after awhile though. A bomber is more than enough in a sitting, even in a long sitting.
Sexual Chocolate is a high quality beer from Foothills and Iíd love to get my hands on more of their brews. I do enjoy this beer but it seems to get caught in the shuffle with all the other quality RISs out there. Itís well made but is missing that something special to set it apart. Thanks again for the sample Brent!

at Savvy1982ís tasting - Aroma of strong chocolate smells, light dusty malts. Some head, some lacing, nice dark colour. Nice chocolate flavour, not too much, balanced with the malts and hops. Itís very even all around, lasting cocoa flavour but fades away cleanly from your mouth. Itís very smooth, dark and choclatey. I would definately get this one again.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours out blackest black and topped with a creamy tan head, swirled lacing, from the 22oz. bottle courtesy of Dan (dkachur): Not a powerful aroma, but a sum of varying muted notes- simple and wonderful. Roasted malts, a mix of milk and bittersweet dark chococlate, black coffee, thick caramel syrup, toffee hard candy, molasses, dark esters, sweet malts, and light alcohol. Extremely smooth. Extremely silky. Flavor waves of roasted cocoa nibs, an espresso kind of kick, toffee, dark plum, pulpy cherries, and roasted malts. Drinkability: Not a hard, imperial stout. Itís really a milkshake of subtleties. Pairing: 90% raw cocoa straight from South America. Rebuy: Yes. Totally. Totes to mah goats. #395 on 13042010, DG.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Pours a deep reddish black-chocolate color. Aroma is cocoa with intense berry-like fruitiness. Taste is roast and chocolate with hints of strawberry, caramel, and burnt bread. Fairly light mouth feel for an imperial stout. Pretty good, but not worth the hype, in my opinion.
