Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - DEC 24, 2007
THOUGHTS: Been waiting a while to try this one. It didnít disappoint. While it wasnít all I dreamed it could possibly be, it was very nice. But a little one sided. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a dark brown that was black and opaque in the glass with a large to huge tan head that mostly diminished but lasted a while and left excellent lacing. The aroma was milk chocolate, mild coffee, cocoa powder and very slight alcohol. The initial flavor was lightly sweet and bitter, while the finish was light to moderate sweetness and moderate to heavy bitterness with an average duration. The flavor was cocoa mostly and a little coffee. The medium body was creamy with fizzy carbonation and a lightly astringent and ever so slightly chalky finish.

NorCal December í07 - What an utter disappointment. I really dig everything that Ommegang makes but this wasnít good in any sense of the word. A nose of bakerís chocolate, chalk, roasted malts, a subtle fruity/cherry aroma, and very, very light coffee. What I found unappealing was the strength of the nose, which I found everything to be too subtle. I was hoping for a really strong nose, but it just wasnít there. Appearance was dark brown in color, thinnish head and too watery for a stout. Flavor...as best as I can describe...was bloody. Like a bloody nose. Slightly smokey and a very, barely detectable amount of chocolate. Whereís the indulgence in chocolate, because I sure in the hell couldnít taste it. You want chocolate indulgence, go with Rogueís Chocolate stout or Youngís Double Chocolate stout. If you want a bloody mess of a beer, here ya go.

On tap at McGregorís. Nice sweet chocolate aroma. At first taste the alcohol was very aparent. I thought it would have been higher than 7%. As it warmed the great chocolate flavor came through. Thanks JB.

Great stuff, on tap at McGregorís. Creamy, a bit alcoholic in the palate. Smoky, chocolate aroma. Great appearance, in a fluted glass, very dark with a thick creamy head.

UPDATED: JUL 12, 2009 750 poured into a snifter had a huge frothy brown head that stayed through the whole tasting, dark chocolate black in color with such a nice look in the glass. aroma of chocolate milk, chocolate roasted malt, light alcohol, cocoa, and hazelnut. mouth feel is so velvet smooth, absolutely no bitterness, silky cocoa chocolate, mild roasted malt, on the more dry side for a stout, but so amazingly smooth to drink, just the perfect balance of flavors. not an over the top brew but so tasty in itís simplicity. definitely fits the profile for a foreign stout, has the taste i have come to expect from ommegang, and had much more to offer in flavor as it warmed up a bit in the glass. way to go on this one, truly an indulgence as the label states!

On tap at Pizza Port. Dark brown with a fizzy tan head. Chocolate and alcohol aroma. Dark chocolate and alcohol taste with some fruit notes.

AOF (306) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - DEC 22, 2007
Ridiculously full, frothy head on top of a dark black beer. Thick creamy lacing throughout the entire drink. A truly beautiful beer to look at. Nose is a bit dissapointing and somewhat thin. Soft bakers chocolate, yeast, mocha, and typical belgian apricot. Light to medium bodied with a creamy texture. However, this is somewhat over carbonated in my opinion. A stout only in appearance, this beer retains more attributes of a begian ale. Still, very unique and a fun beer to drink.

UPDATED: DEC 23, 2007 On tap at the Vintage Estates in Eastern Ohio. One of the better foreign stouts Iíve had. Arcadia Cocoa Loco Triple Chocolate Stout and Lion Stout are the only other two Iíve tasted and this is much more palatable than either of those. Has a mild Nestle Quick aroma. Beautiful dark brown-black color with a head that is rocky chocolate mousse. Alky is present and it is medium at first then it constantly builds on the tongue and the back of the throat. At first it is not 7% then it is. Comes on rather strong but not overwhelming. Is not rude. Very mild carbonation. Overall, a little watery on the palate, in a good way. Holds a decent alky kick without being offensive. IMHO a little too expensive for what you get.

JPDIPSO (5597) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 22, 2007
Brown color with a hint of orange when held to the light. Fairly simple aromas with toasted and roasted malt and mild cocoa. Moderate, creamy, mocha colored head. Nearly thin in feel, somewhat typical of Belgian stouts. Candi and light brown sugar sweetness in the front. Dry dark chocolate and a touch of chocolate malt in the middle. Quite dry in the finish and linger with some more dry cocoa flavors hanging about. Just a hint of tartness shows the yeast profile. Seem simple, but yet nothing to complain about. Thinking back to the Choklat form Southern Tier last night, this one seems like a pale lager. In a way Iím slightly saddened that a good brew is thought less of because it is not over-the-top and complex beyond reason. In other ways Iím elated that what once would have been thought a big brew is now just a blip on the radar.

A particularly good chocolate stout. Thereís a light chocolaty malty aroma, the flavor is full but the chocolate not overpowering. Too often brewers make chocolate stouts taste like sweet chocolate with a hint of stout instead of the other way around. Pleased to say Ommegang got it right.
