3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark black with some highlights at the edges. A big thick tan head that leaves nice lacing. Aroma of dark fruits and a Belgian twang but only a hint of chocolate. Taste follows nose with some fruitiness, Belgian character and some roastiness and cocoa in the background. Finishes semi dry with a bit of bitterness. Mouthfeel is creamy with a medium/full body and moderate carbonation. Tastes closer to a Belgian Strong Ale with a bit of chocolate. Not enough stout character or chocolate but wasn’t bad, just not as advertised or expected.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
The first Ommegang brew that I was not wow’d by. However, had I not had such high expectations it is still an above average stout.
Aroma is malty and mild. Espresso dark. Thin minimal tan head. Fairly light mouthfeel. Very Mild bittersweet chocolate behind a mild Imperial stout.

I was disappointed in this beer. The chocolate flavor was lacking to say the least. At the bottom of my list as far as Stouts are concerned.

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.

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

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?
