Bottle purchased in Winstom Salem prior to this year’s Sexual Chocolate release. Shared at a recent tasting and served in a SAVOR snifter. Pours nearly black with a short mocha head and a thin collar after the head receded. The nose carries a good amount of the honey. Really as advertised there. Behind that was a good amount of chocolate and coffee plus a bit of roast. The flavor also carried the honey along with a pretty heavy chocolate presence. Light roast backing. Moderate sweetness and a medium body with light carbonation. Really a nice brew all around. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 06-13-2011

Sweet chocolate and toffee nose with lots of dark fruit and some vinous notes. The taste is moderately sweet and moderately bitter, it’s very chalky with lots of ash and burnt malt, rather astringent, some smoke, lots of caramel and milk chocolate.

Nephilium (1407) - Ohio, USA - MAY 20, 2011
This starts with an amazing coffee nose, with a touch of underlying sweetness. It pours an opaque black with a quickly fading light tan head. This beer has an interesting flavor profile, where the sweetness of the honey comes out and contrasts the roasted flavors of the malts. There’s a touch of hops in the finish as well, and the alcohol is well hidden for a 10.5% beer. Overall this is a really tasty beer, and I wish I could get my hands on some more of it to cellar away for winter.

TURDFERGUSON (3969) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 4, 2011
Bottle. Brownish black with a thick tan head and great lacing. Aroma is mainly roasted malts, a little bit of chocolate and booze as well. Flavor is burnt roasted malts, molasses, bitter coffee, light cocoa. Finish is much more bitter than I like with a lot of black strap molasses. Wow, this is bitter. Honey is nowhere to be found.

msante79 (2211) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - APR 17, 2011
On tap at Duckworths. Pours near black with tan head. Aromas of roasted malts, chocolate, some coffee and caramel mixed in as well. Flavors of burnt malts, sweet chocolate, espresso, soy sauce, and a bit of booze. Nice mouthfeel. Liked this a bit more than Sexual Chocolate as it had a bit more complexity. Nice stout.
