Black with faint reddish-brown highlights. Head is typically Belgian, meaning it's got great retention and is several fingers high. There's some lacing, though it's sparse. The nose is chocolatey as you'd expect, though a fairly sizable component of ripe plum is also apparent. The Belgian-style yeast also leaves its mark with a bit of phenolic character (powdery aspirin-like note).
Chocolate is not as apparent on the palate as on the nose. As such, it comes across as a Belgian dark ale with a malt profile tipped toward the roasty end of the spectrum. Mouthfeel is not up to stout standards, being kind of thin and "watery," for lack of a better word. Ommegang kind of stumbles a but with this offering; it's still good, but not up to their typical level of excellence.
