look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
Poured from a 750 ml corked bottle into a Duvel tulip glass.
Appearance: Pours a dark brownish black with a moderate amount of bubbles. Huge four finger tan head with decent retention. Leaves a good amount of creamy lacing around the glass.
Smell: A rich, sweet, and roasty dark malt forward aroma with big hints of chocolate, coffee, and toasty biscuit. Dark roasted malts with upfront hints of chocolate, cocoa, coffee, biscuit, grains, toast, cream, caramel, toffee, nuts, and some Belgian yeast. Sweet scent of brown sugar. Dark fruit hints of cherry, raisin, fig, plum, and dates. Subtle hints of earthy hops in the background. A pretty solid roasty aroma.
Taste: Like the aroma, a roasty and sweet dark malt driven taste with good toasty notes of chocolate, coffee, and biscuit. Dark roasted barley malts with a good taste of cocoa, dark chocolate, coffee, biscuit, grains, toasted bread, caramel, toffee, cream, and nuts. Notes of Belgian yeast and a sweet taste of brown sugar. Solid presence of dark fruit with notes of raisin, fig, dark cherry, dates, and plum. A pretty nice taste.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a medium to high level of carbonation. Creamy, slick, and nicely smooth with a somewhat drying finish.
Overall: A pretty solid twist on a Belgian style dark ale. Good chocolate and coffee notes with a balanced sweetness and Belgian yeast presence.

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.
