Did Your Sexual Chocolate go bad?
Been hearing a lot of chatter on twitter whether or not this years foothills Brewing’s Sexual Chocolate had some issues. Since I was lucky enough to have a friend with an extra bottle a couple months ago, I decided to see if my bottle was a victim to internet rumors.
I can’t say that I’ve ever had this beer before, but my guess it isn’t supposed to smell like the New Glarus Old English Porter. However with that said, I think it smells pretty friggin’ good. Even if it is not the way it was intended, sometimes happy accidents can be beneficial. My beer has started to sour somewhat; there was a serious infected flavor to the beer. Now before people starting saying, “Aww Man you must have had to dump it”, I didn’t.
You see some times bad things happen to good beers; in even rarer cases the bad things can actually be enjoyable. As many of you know, I choose not to write negative beer reviews. It’s not my style or what I want people to read on Simply Beer. However, even while this beer was not what it was supposed to be, I rather enjoyed the dry tartness; almost sour, mixed with a strong bitter chocolate flavor.
I’ve read some unfavorable tweets about this beer going bad. My beer wasn’t bad, I don’t think it is what was intended, but not bad. It was simply different. So, would you have given this beer a chance?
