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.

3.39/5  rDev -11.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.5

Pours a deep, dark mahogany with reddish tinge that can be seen with light. Thin khaki head is present briefly before diminishing to soapy lacing. Dark, but noticeably lighter and less opaque than a stout. Smell has milk chocolate, prunes, almond, and light malts; a bit underwhelming. Taste is mildly hoppy up front followed by some dry baking chocolate, as well as tobacco, and belgian yeast. Feel is a little too thin for my preference, moderate carbonation.

Overall, decent beer, but a misleading one. When I read "Chocolate Indulgence", I was expecting something on the lines of Samuel Smith's "Organic Chocolate Stout" or Rouge XS Imperial Chocolate stout, which are both absolutely loaded with intense chocolate flavor. Ommegang's simply hints at chocolate, and myself and seemingly many others wanted a bit more.

App. - Dark. Very dark pour with an extremely thick head (3/4 fingers). Much lacing present.

Smell - Not much here. Chocolate. Lots and lots of chocolate.

Taste - Holy Hershey bar batman! Seriously, lots of chocolate. Milky flavor as well.

Mouth. - Smoooth. Very palatable and easy to keep drinking.

Over. - There's just so much chocolate and cream. It's a great brew that I wasn't expecting much from.

On tap poured into a short tulip glass. The smell was faint of dark chocolate and hint of cream. The head was a thick cream colored 1 finger that holds for a short while. The taste isn't as chocolate as the name would lead you to believe. It was tasty with a mocha light dark chocolate hint.
