Cracked this open to drink while reading one of Jon's chapters!
A-very dark brown with a nice thick tan head
S-dark grains and dark belgian sugars. I usually hate it when any stout with a touch of belgian is automatically thrown in to the BDA or BSDA category, but this definitely smells like a BDA. definitely a roasted character to it.
T-comes in with a mellow flavor of dark belgian sugars and dark malts and slowly fades in to a more chocolatey flavor. it's a roasted chocolate flavor and it lasts awhile in to the after-taste.
M-dry medium carbonation with a dry finish
O-this is actually pretty good. it definitely tastes like a BDA, but still has a lot of good stout characteristics to it. it has a lot of good stout/belgian flavor while still being semi-low on alcohol content. i'm glad i'm not sharing this.

Pours black as a White Walkers soul with a very huge head...I had to slow down my pour to make sure i didnt over do it.Slight lacing and retention...so far so good.Smell is licorice and malt.First taste is not what I was expecting but maybe because of the Ommegang style I expected the siginiture taste of the Belgian style.This is NOT a chocolate bomb stout for sure.It does seem to melt in the mouth a bit but not a thick aftertaste.Do not let the name fool you.This is not a Russian Imperial Stout.This is much lighter and at first I was let down but after my first glass I get what they were trying to pull off here.Not bad at all. 3.5 out of 5 stars.
