Sexual Chocolate

You never know what you might find!
So, I take a completely unplanned trip up to Asheville, NC for the weekend and while I’m hanging out in Brusin’ Ales, one of the customers (Scott) says that the Mellow Mushroom (a few feet away) has just tapped their keg of Sexual Chocolate! Happy coincidence.
After all the hype surrounding this beer, and all of the trouble that people have gone to in order to get it, I found it a little perplexing/strange/amusing that it should be sitting there and being liberally served in pints for $3.75!
Anyway, it pours the standard black color with a fast receding head and some (but not a great deal) of lace. Nose is definitely the strongest attribute of SC for me. Wave after wave of deep, rich, milk chocolate notes with touches of additional burned after tastes too. Creamy chocolate followed by alcohol and roasty burn.
The alcohol catches up with you quickly here, and it diminishes the drinkability. It’s a beer that is not really easy to consume, and I suppose that it’s not supposed to be, but I found it a little harsh on the back end.
A two-part experience for me. Softer, creamier notes up front and the traditional bite and alcohol of a RIS at the back end. Alcohol is a significant factor here and it means that I will probably sit on the one bottle I’ve got.
