3.5/5 rDev -8.4%
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.
Serving type: bottle

3.76/5 rDev -1.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
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
