Foothills Brewery in Winston-Salem, NC yearly debut of the Sexual Chocolate Imperial Stout was released on January 27th. According to Foothills, Sexual Chocolate is “a cocoa infused Imperial Stout – Opaque black in color with a dark brown head. Big chocolate aroma with notes of espresso, blackstrap molasses, dark sweet toffee and dark fruit. Smooth dark chocolate backbone with complex notes of coffee, dark toffee and dark fruit.” Ratebeer.com gave the stout an overall score of 100 and a style score of 95.
Foothills Brewery was one of the cooler joints in The Dash when I lived there in the summer of 2009 (along with Krankies, the Silver Moon Saloon, 6th and Vine, and First Street Draught House). They only made 1800 bottles this year and a barrel-aged form is released later in the year. And how great is the label?! I would love to try it.
