750 ml corked and caged bottle pours an ebony body with an attractive light brown head that leaves some extravagant lacing. Aroma of dark chocolate, creamed coffee, and light floral hops. Medium body. Taste is dark chocolate, chocolate milk, and roasty dark malts(some coffee notes) balanced by a pleasantly floral hops bitterness. Finish has a lingering fresh roast coffee aftertaste. A very interesting offering from Ommegang.

BeerandBlues2 (9081) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - NOV 24, 2007
750 mL caged and corked bottle received via trade from Beerlando. Pours opaque with an average, frothy and bubbly tan head, somewhat diminishing with good lacing. Aroma is average malt (dark chocolate, molasses, coffee), light hops (flowers), average yeast (mold, cheese) with notes of charcoal. Full bodied, alcoholic texture, lively carbonation, and a bitter, slightly dry finish. Long duration, light sweetness, moderate acidity and bitterness.

Pours to an extreme black, with a nice, tan head. Great, sweet aroma, lots of chocolate, reminiscent of a chocolate malted milkshake. Again, a good amount of chocolate in the body, but not too sweet to enjoy. Smooth, creamy, with a touch of cocoa powder. A little roasted malt on the finish, with bitter coffee. Easy drinking sweet "stout".

TheBeerGod (5045) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - NOV 23, 2007
Bottle - 750mL corked and caged. Midnight black. Tall foamy tan head fades leaving spotty lacing. Aroma is dark chocolates, soft dark oily coffee, roasted malts and light hops. Taste is chocolate candy, cocoa, bit of chocolate milk, roasted malts, cocoa, and light coffee. Very tasty! Body is creamy and smooth. Palate is medium but feel lighter in spots almost like a chocolate mousse. Ends with more dark chocolate, light coffee, cocoa and roasted malts. This would go great with any chocolate dessert!

KingpinIPA (841) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 23, 2007
Bottle via kmweaver. Dark color. Smell of chocolate, hops, malt, flowers and coffee. Taste of hops, coco, malt, caramel, roasted coffee and toffee. A little watered down. I was expecting more in this beer.

this was a very good beer, but it wasn’t what I thought it was going to be like. I don’t know how a ’foreign stout’ is supposed to taste so I can’t say it was bad in comparison. Nest to Brooklyn’s black chocolate stout & Youngs chocolate stout this beer was not to good.

Chapel (468) - Levittown, New York, USA - NOV 20, 2007
Dark brown pour with a tan head. Light and sweet aroma with just a hint of chocolate. Flavor was intensely of chocolate and esters. A bit of coffee/chocolate bitterness, not the kind I normally associate with hops, rounded off the finish. Rather dry finish.

NicerInPerson (337) - North of Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - NOV 20, 2007
The aroma was spritzy with carbonation and cocoa presence. The chocolate aroma was fruity and contained a bit of smoky and roasty characteristics. Raisins and prunes were also present. The beer poured into the chalice clear black with a brown moderate head which fell slowly to lace the glass. The flavor was acidic and carbonic with a strong acrid roasty characteristic. The acidity in this was was very high and the flavor quite thin and estery. Chocolate, dark bitter, was notable as was a bit of roast. The finish was bone dry with lasting impressions of dark bittersweet chocolate into the aftertaste and beyond. The body was medium and the carbonation was moderate but the beer was so dry that it was not creamy on the palate. A bit of alcohol warming occurred post consumption and the beer became more pleasant to consume as it warmed. Ok, but nothing special. 750 ml corked and bailed bottle.

jercraigs (7348) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 20, 2007
Bottle shared by DuctTape. Very dark brown almost black body with a foamy latte like brown head. Sweet, lightly musty malt aroma, with hints of dry cocoa. (7+) Sweet rich malt flavour with chocolate and cocoa notes blended well throughout. Light bitterness in the finish keeps it from becoming cloying. Smooth medium palate, interesting carbonation is tingly (3+) Very nice, less complex than expected perhaps, but quite good.

Looks like a stout, smells like a stout, tastes like a stout, finishes like a Belgian Ale? Kooky. It was very dark with a brown head. I get heavy smells of chocolate (duh) with some other sweet smells. The flavor is subtle, but chocolate does dominate. The mouth feel is creamy, but a tiny bit thin.
