2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a dark cola color with a clean water aroma mixed with a slight coco powder. Taste is a little blahand watery for a stout. Minor chocolate taste, with a very quickly dissipating aftertaste. I had high hopes for this beer but was slightly dissappointing.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep dark brown almost black. It has a nice thin tan foamy head. The aroma is roasted, almost burnt, coffee with a hint of cocoa. The taste is crisp with a rich roast coffee taste. Chocolate is more in the aroma than taste

On tap at Freshcraft. Almost black with a tan head and light lacing. Aroma and flavor of chocolate, caramel, sweet malts, and dark fruits. Creamy and smooth with a medium body and a sweet finish.

Bottle. Dark cola colored with a big tan head. Aroma is oat and roasted malt. Not getting any chocolate. Taste adds some light hop bitterness, but again not getting any chocolate. Medium chalky palate. Not bad but it's odd to me I'm not getting the chocolate. Bad bottle perhaps?

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle in lieu of chocolates for Valentine’s Day. Pours dark brown with a thick, tan head and an immediate strong aroma of dark chocolate. The beer is very smooth and has almost no hint of alcohol. However, the aroma is much more complex than the taste and surprisingly the flavor was more nutty and yeasty than actual chocolate. On the other hand, beers like this get cloyingly sweet, but this was definitely not. Overall, a little thin, but enjoyable and great for the occasion.

Had this at a tasting. Big disappointment from Ommegang. This was super thin and had zero chocolate flavor.

Pours black with a thick tan head. Not much for aroma and fairly bland taste with hints of chocolate. Disappointing.

It poured a clear amber color with a small white head. The aroma was of spicy citrus, tea and some earthy yeast. The taste was a bittersweet dark chocolate and cocoa even though the chocolate qualities aren’t extremely obvious.
