A - pours a deep opaque black. Rigorous pour yields a thick milk chocolate foam. Leaves some streaks of lacing on the glass as is slowly dissipates.
S - aroma is soft yet rich. Notes of cacao, carob and slightly roasty malt. Comes through more like multigran toast. Yeast adds notes of raisins and mild white peppercorns.
T - grainy toasty flavors up front. Light touch of sugery sweetness. Deep dark chocolate flavors. Carob and cacao. Even a wisp of coffee creating a mocha note in the center. Some dark dried fruit character on the backend mostly raisin with maybe a hint of dates. Slightly peppery finish with a tinge of alcohol heat which lingers.
M - medium bodied. Slightly watery texture. High carb.
O - they should change the name to dark chocolate indulgence. I love that it is a desert beer but on the drier side. Tons of chocolatey character but not cloyingly sweet. Great stuff.

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
