Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

Review from notes, Oct 2013, 750ml bottle poured into tulip

A- pours a dark brown color with a little bit of light shining through, creamy off-white head retains nicely

S- picking up more dark fruit than chocolate up front, some spicy Belgian yeast, caramel and fresh bread

T- dark fig/raisin flavors mix with light chocolaty malt, hints of toffee and coffee, spicy yeast on the finish

M- medium body with medium carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel that continues into a dryish finish

O- certainly not a stout, with more dark fruit than chocolate, still enjoyable though

Undated bomber given me in December 2013 and aged one year.

This is a chocolate ale for those who like their chocolate dark and not very sweet. None of the Hershey's milk chocolate effect here! The chocolate is one element in a mix of roasty flavors, but the chocolate doesn't overwhelm the stout. The beer is just a little tart, and has a bit of bitterness (like coffee bitterness, not the effect of hops). This beer is not sweet at all. Very tasty.

2012 batch consumer in January 2014. Held up well. Cocoa bark, hints of clove, slight banana, still packs a lot of flavor. Nice.
