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.
