Foothills Barrel Aged Sexual Chocolate

BA SC10% ABV. Barrel-aged Imperial Stout from Foothills Brewing in Winston-Salem, NC. Finally got to land one to cross off yet another beer on my wish list. Pours espresso and the thin tan lacing recedes to a slight ring that leaves some splotch throughout. Aromas of smooth bourbon and cocoa with a just a touch of heat. Sweet caramel barrel notes with some dark chocolate. There is some minimal char in the periphery as well. There were some buttery chocolate notes in the flavors along with some light bourbon which was upfront with an oak backing. Light roasted malts, brown sugar, and nuts as well. Medium light bodied with a smooth and medium carbonation finishing off with charred oak. Overall, a little thin and light on the flavors which was mildly disappointing, but nonetheless, better than the regular Sexual Chocolate. Very easy drinking and dangerous – I booked a vacation for me and the missus over budget by $1k while drinking this chocolate baby.
