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.
Serving type: bottle

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
