Dark almost black in color, creamy brown head, Smells of cocoa rather than chocolate. The head leaves some nice lacing and there's a lot of sticking to the sides as you drink this beer. You can taste some bitter sweet and semi sweet chocolate along with a large amount of cocoa. This beer is very smooth and has next to no bitterness except a tiny bit at the end. Tiny bit of roasted coffee in the after taste. Overall a great brew I had it out of the bottle and on tap at the brewery on it's release day. I don't know after the first I had another bottle with a friend. At 7%ABV I think this could use a little mellowing from cellering to smooth it out a bit more.

Poured out of a 750ml corked and caged bottle that came with a nice Ommegang goblet. The color is very near black, the only brown I could see was when I held it straight against a light source and then it was only on the outer most edges. The tan head is thick and leaves some nice lacing. The smell is of semi-sweet chocolate, perhaps a touch of smoke. The taste is of powdery cocoa, bitter chocolate, carob, light roasted coffee and a metallic twang. I pick up a very slight fruitiness every now and again. The feel is silky smooth and well bodies; the metallic aftertaste is a bit undesirable. Great brew, great chocolate flavors mixing well with the roasted malt. Definitely a sipper, hard to finish off the 750 ml.

shared a bottle at union jacks pub glenside with fellow staffer and 2 patrons. chocolate isnt over the top .... great stout with nice mouthfeel. perfect abv. good balance for this type of brew.i usually cant take a 250z. of imperial stout to the head until 'round xmas time.. but this was quite easy (with friends).will try it on draft next.

On-tap at Cole's at $9 a pint. Mike, you are the best at getting stuff like this in. Deep chocolate, I expected to sip but it went down quicker. Lots of lace and full mouthfeel. Bitter finish and more bitter baking chocolate edge aftertaste, rather than sweet or bittersweet. I must have again..for dessert.

750ml bottle, served in a goblet.

A - black as night with a foamy tan head that thinned out some, leaving lots of lacing on the glass.

S - cocoa aroma is strongest, faint aromas of malt and yeast are also there.

T - good tasting brew, chocolate is there, but not overpowering. Sweet tastes of roasted malt and cocoa. Some yeastiness is evident on the swallow.

M - full bodied and mildly carbonated.

D - a dessert beer, for sure. Enjoyable brew at 7%abv, but too heavy to have more than 1 or 2 glasses of.

Final Note: Happy 10th Anniversary Ommegang, keep up the good work!
