Chocolate Indulgence offers a thick tan head of foam resting atop of the rich onyx-hued liquid. The aroma immediately speaks of dark chocolate and dark malts. The gentle herbal notes of perle hops compliments the darker aroma notes, making the beer fully savory to all the senses.

Enjoyable chocolate stout, better than most versions of this style. A good choice to pair with dessert.

Served in a snifter at the Union Brewhouse in Weymouth.

Appearance: A one finger mocha head was poured that reduced to a puffy layer. It is a pitch black color with no vision of anything. Spotty lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Spicy yeast, dark fruits, chocolate, caramel, toffee, earthy, and bready.

Taste: You pick up more flavors as it warmed up and some roasty and bitterness in there too.

Mouthfeel: Silky, creamy, smooth, medium to full bodied, and medium carbonation.

Overall: Not sure if this is a dark ale or stout, but I'm happy either way. Got better as it warmed.

2007 Vintage Bottle poured into a stemmed Ommegang glass.

L - Poured chocolate brown with a tan head that quickly dispersed into a thin bubbly lacing.

S - Chocolate dominates in a big way followed by ripe fruit and raisin. Delicious!

T - Chocolate with a slight bitter coffee taste. Hints of ripe fruits. finishes with a slight metalic taste. Very tasty.

F - Light mouth feel, but but viscous enough to leave a slightly sticky mouth feel.

Not a stout as the name would dictate, but a very tasty Belgian Dark Ale.

Dark body that is about one shade under full black with a big tan head the builds and hangs around lacing the glass nice. Really gorgeous beer. Subdued smell with cocoa, dark malt, coffee and herbal notes. Taste starts off sweet, some chat notes from the malt and some sweet dark fruit notes come through. Chocolate makes a big appearance mid palate starting sweet and ending bitter with some herbal hop flavor and coffee. Mouthfeel is medium body and medium carbonation which starts active on the palate and goes fully creamy with some slight dryness. Overall I wasn't sure what to expect but this was an enjoyable beer that brought chocolate flavors with a good balance of sweet and bitter.
