A: Nice here. Pours dark. Dark tan head. Leaves good lacing. Carbonation looks on the money.
S: Again nice. Chocolate, smokey, a bit tart, some fruitiness. A bit boozy which actually balances it out.
T: Really big taste that is solid but overpowered by the booziness. A great smokiness, chocolate comes through a bunch. And it's actually good chocolate with a sweetness not a bitterness. A bit sharp which I think is the alcohol coming through (although it isn't that high of an ABV). Great tastes but just a bit off balance.
As I got more into the beer the positive flavors seemed to fade being replaced by the sharp acidlike note...
M: Medium body. Carbonation is on the money. A bit dry for the big flavor notes.
Overall the first few sips of this were killer bring a huge smoke and chocolate note. But as I got more into the beer these nice flavors faded into something lighter and more aggressive. Worth a try.

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
