3.5/5 rDev -8.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: Opaque black body with a one finger soapy tan head. Laces nicely.
Aroma: Get the chocolate right away, rich dark cocoa. Almost roasty. Not getting much else.
Taste: Dark malts on the front end and then all dark chocolate through the finish. Surprised there aren't more flavors here considering it's a Belgian. Some dark fruit notes right before the finish but almost missable because of the great chocolate flavor. Not quite as robust as I was expecting but decent for 7% ABV. If someone handed this to me and said I was a light Porter I'd probably believe them.
Mouthfeel: Closer to thin than medium in consistency, which might be partly do to the effervescence. Average drinkability.
Final Thoughts: As a beer it's pretty good but as a Belgian it is a little one-dimentional. Chocolate lovers rejoice. Would I drink it again? Probably not.

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.
