Poured a 2007 of this brew into my Chimay goblet... a nice one inch thick tan head on top of a dark brown body. There was a little bit of visible carbonation zooming up to the surface. Good head retention and nice lacing on the glass during the drinking period.
Aroma of dark chocolate and earthy, pungent hops.
Flavor of dark, bitter chocolate, a roasted/burnt flavor followed by an alcohol warmth and slight residual sweetness.
Thick mouthfeel, just the right amount of carbonation to thin it out a bit so as to not be chewy. You can taste the bittersweet roasted flavors on your palate for quite some time after each sip (or chug depending on how much you like this).
All in all, excellent drinkability. Not too strong, well balanced flavors, good strong chocolate backbone. Glad I could share this brew with my girlfriend and looking forward to trying this one out again sometime soon.

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
