For fans of one of Foothills Brewing Co.’s most popular beer, the wait is almost over.
Released every year since 2009, Bourbon Barrel-Aged Sexual Chocolate is once again going on sale at the Winston-Salem, N.C.-based brewery. The 9.75 percent ABV “cocoa infused Imperial Stout” is once again being sold in 22-ounce bottles ($20), with a limit of eight bottles per person. Although the release has traditionally been held during the first weekend of September, “for various reasons,” this year’s version is being sold a month earlier on Aug. 8.
The original incarnation of Sexual Chocolate (9.75 percent ABV) was first released in 2007 and was the brainchild of Jamie Bartholomaus, who named it after a fictitious band in an Eddie Murphy movie.
