Black pour, large frothy tan head that lasts. Very sexy in the glass. Aroma is yeasty, chocolate, some darker malts still. Somewhat rough, somewhat fruity. Medium bodied with a cheap chocolately finish. Somewhat interesting but not worth coming back to at the pricetag.

Bottle courtesy of Degarth. Iíve been wanting to try this one for a really long time. Shockingly this is my first Brewery Ommegang rating, I must fix that very soon. Black pour, or as near to black as can be, completely opaque. Medium sized mocha colored head. Mostly diminishing with some decent lacing. Aroma is very ashy, seems to be the theme of the night with the dark beers we had. Along with that I get some tobacco leaves, milk and dark chocolate, dark fruit and malts, and some sour notes. Flavor is very similar, rich chocolate and ash, but with an odd metallic twang about halfway through. Thanks for pointing this out, Dave *end sarcasm* ;). Body is medium-full, ashy mouthfeel and very chalky. Creamy despite all of that. Finish is lengthy, again all chocolate with some complimentary ashy notes, and some spiciness. Good, not great.

BBB63 (5743) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - NOV 28, 2007
Corked bottle and served in my Expedition snifter: Basically opaque with a slowly fading creamy tan head and left very good lace upon the snifter. The aroma has notes of bittersweet chocolate, walnut, leather, lactic acid, grassy and slight resiny hop, light charred wood and just a dash of espresso.

The taste is a lovely blend of rich cafe mocha and twangy bittering hops. The sweetness of the chocolate is balanced by the coffee and hop bitterness. Adding depth is some smoke, fig and prune. The mouth feel is not as lush as I hoped but then again it is quite drinkable and oh so smooth!

For me this is a well executed brew with just enough sweetness working with lactic and bitterness to make it oh so tasty. I will grab me many more bottles when they arrive in the local area. Thanks to Todd (MrBendo) for my advanced bottle in trade.

Black with big, foamy tan head / Big nose of bittersweet chocolate / Medium body, slightly metallic taste, a little thin with decent finish / Smooth flavors of bittersweet chocolate, coffee, and cinnamon with chewy, toasty finish /

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 28, 2007
On tap at the 2007 GABF: Pours a mostly opaque dark mahogany with a spotty-lacing froth of dark tan head. Aroma of slightly sweet and doughy dark chocolate and biscuity malts. Body starts fairly doughy and semi-sweet with some earthy, almost burnt dark chocolatey notes and a drier toasty finish. Could use a touch more sweetness, but pretty interesting.

Excellent. This is definitely a magnificent stout. The chocolate is huge mixed with just a touch of coffee in the flavor. It is a full bodied, creamy brew with a silky smooth finish.

Excellent Chocolate Stout! Effervescent like a Belgian, strong in flavor like a stout, choclatey like a chocolate stout and not too sweet.

Bottle. Pours a dark chocolatey brown with a decent sized light mocha head. Decent lacing throughout. The aroma is a blend of chocolate, dark roasted malts, cocoa. The taste is chocolate with a light beer aftertaste. Itís a bit watered down for a stout, grabs me more as a porter. The aftertaste is a good bitter chocolate. Itís a very decent beer, but not what I was anticipating.

Happy 10th Anniversary Ommegang! Many more!
From the wired up & corked 750ml bottle this pours a very dark brown body with a modest light brown head that laces spottily. It has an aroma of dark, slightly bitter chocolate, iced coffee, dark roasted malt, and a touch of sour cream. It has a thinner mouthfeel than I would have expected and just makes it into the medium bodied category. The flavor pretty well ecdhoes the aroma except that the malts seem slightly burnt and a dash of earthy bitterness is added. Pretty decent.

Tap @ House of Brews, NYC. Pours a deep brown color with a medium-sized tan head. Aroma is malt, chocolate, coffee, and slightly -detectable hops. Taste is chocolate and malt up front with a slight coffee aftertaste and alcoholic tinge at the end. Slightly metallic as well, but overall a solid effort.
