Poured into a Tulip glass.
A - poured a very dark brown with a light brown milk chocolate three finger head. very frothy and creamy looking. unfiltered as well...you can see floaters haha.
S - smelling dark fruit.raisins, cherries, plum, licorice...all of those are dominant and barley any chocolate ...and a tinge of alcohol. cinnamon pops through a little bit as well.
T - very well carbonated. But for a beer called chocolate indulgence it should be more chocolatey in my opinion....getting a lot of dark sweet fruits and only a hint of chocolate....if that....alcohol is apparent in the nose but well hidden after swallowing. After having founders breakfast stout this year, i dont think any "chocolatey" beer is going to top that..Im not liking this that much.
M - Creamy and well carbonated. fairly drinkable.
Overall...its a good looking beer but the taste wasnt there for me....dont get me wrong its a good stout. but with a name like that...the taste has to live up to it.

Appearance: deep dark brown-red. Nice plush tan head on the pour.
Smell: bright Belgian characteristics are up front. Darker chocolate notes in the background. Maybe that will change as it warms.
Taste: much like the nose, though the chocolate and Belgian notes are more evenly balanced.
Overall: good beer, not great.

Stout? It is not a stout. Does not appear to be a stout. Does not smell like a stout. Feels okay enough to be a stout. Something is missing though... Oh right. The chocolate and stout part of the Chocolate Indulgence Stout. Only indulging in really okay non-stout
Serving type: on-tap
