Poured from bomber to pint glass.

Pours a dark brown with a big brown head with decent retention, but nothing amazing. Smells of chocolate malt, cocoa, and some common Belgian spiciness. Taste is not as strong as I had heard. It's like a laid-back young's double chocolate with some clove and cinnamon-like spice. Mouthfeel is this and bubbly. Pretty drinkable, the taste wasn't amazing, but a 750 is fine for one person.

3.39/5  rDev -11.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.5

Pours a deep, dark mahogany with reddish tinge that can be seen with light. Thin khaki head is present briefly before diminishing to soapy lacing. Dark, but noticeably lighter and less opaque than a stout. Smell has milk chocolate, prunes, almond, and light malts; a bit underwhelming. Taste is mildly hoppy up front followed by some dry baking chocolate, as well as tobacco, and belgian yeast. Feel is a little too thin for my preference, moderate carbonation.

Overall, decent beer, but a misleading one. When I read "Chocolate Indulgence", I was expecting something on the lines of Samuel Smith's "Organic Chocolate Stout" or Rouge XS Imperial Chocolate stout, which are both absolutely loaded with intense chocolate flavor. Ommegang's simply hints at chocolate, and myself and seemingly many others wanted a bit more.

App. - Dark. Very dark pour with an extremely thick head (3/4 fingers). Much lacing present.

Smell - Not much here. Chocolate. Lots and lots of chocolate.

Taste - Holy Hershey bar batman! Seriously, lots of chocolate. Milky flavor as well.

Mouth. - Smoooth. Very palatable and easy to keep drinking.

Over. - There's just so much chocolate and cream. It's a great brew that I wasn't expecting much from.

On tap poured into a short tulip glass. The smell was faint of dark chocolate and hint of cream. The head was a thick cream colored 1 finger that holds for a short while. The taste isn't as chocolate as the name would lead you to believe. It was tasty with a mocha light dark chocolate hint.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from a 750ml bottle into a stemmed glass.

The color is a dark black with a finger of tan head and some nice lacing left on the glass.

The smell is dark malts here, there, and everywhere. The nose does open up once your past the dominant malty aroma and lets out some of that cocoa aroma I had been looking for. A touch of candy sugar sweetens the nose up a bit and gets me motivated to take the first taste.

The taste has a nice roast malt flavor that has a hint of dark chocolate and a slight coffee bean flavor. There is a Belgian yeast character that is reminiscent of double that is mixed with a stout.

The feel of this beer is medium bodied but behaves like a bigger beer. It will not hurt you but it try's to scare you that it might be too much handle. It does have a reasonable drink-ability but does tend to challenge you at times. Overall, a great flavorful beer with great character.
