Got as a gift in the variety pack for Christmas.
Finally got to this one tonight.
Had after dinner with some chocolate cupcakes.
Poured into a tulip glass. Immediate foamy head, evenly distributed over the top of the glass, about 2 fingers, remained for quite a while at each pour.
Very dark. I can barely trace the chocolate smell though, I am getting a very Belgian yeast/malt that almost overpowers the chocolate.
It is a strong tasting Belgian dark, full bodied and it does have a good stout-like flavor to it.
However it is indeed lacking in the chocolate aspect as many reviewers have also noted.
Compared to the Rogue Chocolate Stout, the double as well, it's severely lacking in this area.
I almost wish they just stuck with the Belgian dark because based on the description, it's lacking. Maybe more of a bitter, almost bakers chocolate?
But it is a good beer nonetheless. Once I got past the tough smell, the beer is enjoyable. It is a hefty ABV that is quite noticeable as well.
Ommegang does good work, but this one is a bit lower than I would expect.
Again, good, just not great as expected.
