I poured this belguin dark ale come stout into my Ommegang tulip glass.
The appearance is dark and stout like with plum hues around the edge of the glass. There is considerable head that dies off to strong skim of fine bubbles across the top of the beer.
The aroma is subtle chocolate with some roasted notes and a hint of raisin.
This is a complex beer for taste. Smooth chocolate hits the tongue first followed by some hints of spicy yeast and plum. This is not just a chocolate beer it is like a milk chocolate drop with sweet spicy like plum filling. The aftertaste is abruptly dark chocolate bitter with a hint of roasted coffee. A wholly pleasant experience.
I had expected a more syrup like consistency yet the mouthfeel is thin yet coating which does well for this beer.
A very drinkable beer that I had suspected to be a dessert beer. Chocolate Indulgence is however a beer for any occasion.

Aroma of chocolate

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.
