The cork popped violently, resulting in black gold splashing all over my kitchen and a little gush. In the commotion, I almost broke my Ommegang chalice. Wow....wasn't expecting that from this beer.
A - Good head, solid lacing. This beer is pretty black.
S - Aroma is a little muted for all the chocolate that's in here. Still some chocolate yogurt goodness and not too much else.
T - Whoa, I don't understand some of the so-so reviews here concerning lack of chocolate taste....this baby is loaded with bitter Belgian chocolate, and the aftertaste is long. Excellent. Manifests itself as a chocolate stout, then you get a little Belgian yeast fruit-and-spiciness and some mild hop.
F - Typically stout-like, but with a little of that nice Belgian softness.
D - Even though a little gushed out, I may have trouble finishing this 750. It's very good, but it does seem rich. I'll take one for the team, though. It would be better to share with someone. Choco-stouts aren't my favorite, but I am happy to have had the opportunity to try this.

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
