3.73/5 rDev -2.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75
A: just about pitch black; dark mocha foam fat as a few fingers leaves some lace behind
S: dark roasted malts, some hints of darker, moldy fruit; bitter herbs and earthy aromas
T: bittersweet dark roasted malts, chocolate char; muted, buried fruit; spikes of bright yeast and spice - bittersweet cocoa notes are frontal, but have an herbal, almost astringent character
M: thin and quick; medium-light body, bittering; moderately smooth, slightly sticky/coating
O: not overly impressed, but the caveat here is that I prefer a dark beer such as this to have more body and richness; for a beer with "Indulgence" in its name, I expect a more luxurious experience. Still appropriate for fans of chocolate stouts and porters, and dark Belgian ales.

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.
