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.
