Normal Ommegang 750ml bottle, corked and caged. Wow, this is one dark beer. I am holding it up to the light and still can not see through. The head is a lovely light brown and seems to stay.

The smell is wonderful to say the least. Reminds me of an Impy Stout. Tons of chocolate and malt with a good measure of coffee mixed in. Some slight chalk as well.

Taste is well, not up the standards of the smell. Some odd metallic flavor seems present in the aftertaste. Before that, it seems smooth and inviting. Mouthfeel seems all over the place. There is good substance, it just doesn't want to come together. Back to the taste, bitter chocolate and some slight hoppy notes.

A unique beer to say the least and it pretty much delivers exactly what it says. In the end, I guess that is all you can ask for. Personally, I would split this among three to four people and pair it with either a strong cheese or a flourless cake.

look: 5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Undated bottle at 50 degrees into snifter
Aroma of chocolate
Head large (7 cm), light brown, creamy, slowly diminishing to 2 mm layer
Lacing good – reticulum covering most of glass, bubbles varying in size
Body dark brown, opaque
Flavor begins with chocolate and slight alcohol flavor; no hops, no diacetyl.
Palate medium, creamy, soft carbonation

This is an excellent chocolate stout, of which I usually keep a couple bottles around. The appearance is very appealing – large, creamy head and good lacing atop a deliciously dark brew, topped by the alluring aroma of chocolate. The flavor is chocolaty and delicious, with only the slight taste of alcohol detracting from the pleasure. Overall, a very exquisite brew.
