3.74/5 rDev -1.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Beer is dark ruby brown, with decent edge head, with minimal lacing. I really don't get much from the smell, there is a light chocolate hint over a raisiny backbone. The chocolate becomes more prevalent as it warms.
The taste is stronger, following the nose on the fruit end, but with more power behind it. Raisin and plum, with a light Belgian-banana hint. The chocolate is mostly missing, in my opinion. I get it in some tastes near the end, in others I miss it completely. Maybe I'm off tonight.
Overall, my first tastes of this beer cold from fridge were good. As it came to temp, the nose improved, but the taste actually started to weaken in my mind. This is a decent beer, but nothing great. I definitely wouldn't grab it if looking for a sweeter, dessert beer. But for a darker, Belgian style ale, it's worth a taste.

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.
