Appearance- Dark and porter like in color, almost completely black in color. Nice toffee colored dense rocky head which lingered long after the glass was empty.
Smell- Not so much chocolate in the aroma here, I get horse blanket, with hints of barnyard, and sweet candy along with some very earthy notes.
Taste-It has a nice clean start, very similar to a roasted porter in some regards. It finishes slightly bitter, and almost solvent like. The chocolate is very subtle.
Mouthfeel-The color of this beer would lead to believe that it would be a full bodied, malt experience. However just the opposite is the case. This beer is very light in body, almost thin. I think the yeast also contributes heavily to a nice dry finish.
Drinkability- This beer is like a cross between a Baltic and roasted porter, combined with some Belgian yeast. Overall decent beer, might pick a bottle up to stash in the cellar, and revisit it in a year.
Serving type: on-tap

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
