You haven't tried Brewery Ommegang's Chocolate Indulgence Stout until you've had it off the tap.
Ommengang Chocolate Indulgence is completely different from the tap versus the bottle. Cocoa nibs are fragrant and present in the taste. Pillowy tan head collapses into a tan ring that laces and etches the glass all the way down. Minor alcohol burn blooms into rich chocolate and vanilla finish that ends with a coffee bitterness. Lovely and the tap is far superior to the already impressive bottled. In my bottle review I say it's like kissing Willy Wonka. On-tap is like you've invited the Oompa-loompas and stayed the night. Especially impressive ay 7% alcohol. You haven't tried Brewery Ommegang's Chocolate Indulgence Stout until you've had it off the tap.
I enjoyed this on tap at the Black Dog in Urbana, IL, and point you to my review in Beerfly: great BBQ and fantastic beer.

Undated bottle at 50 degrees into snifter
Aroma of chocolate
Head large (7 cm), light brown, creamy, slowly diminishing to 2 mm layer
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.
