Poured from a 750ml bottle into a stemmed glass. The color is a dark black with a finger of tan head and some nice lacing left on the glass. The smell is dark malts here, there, and everywhere. The nose does open up once your past the dominant malty aroma and lets out some of that cocoa aroma I had been looking for. A touch of candy sugar sweetens the nose up a bit and gets me motivated to take the first taste. The taste has a nice roast malt flavor that has a hint of dark chocolate and a slight coffee bean flavor. There is a Belgian yeast character that is reminiscent of double that is mixed with a stout. The feel of this beer is medium bodied but behaves like a bigger beer. It will not hurt you but it try’s to scare you that it might be too much handle. It does have a reasonable drink-ability but does tend to challenge you at times. Overall, a great flavorful beer with great character.

Pours black. Aroma and taste are chocolate, malts, and is quite a bit lighter than expected.

Tap pour. Pitch black with off white head. Decent lacing. Raw coca, light roast and mild dark fruit. Restrained. Flavor builds. Plums and cherries. Stronger chocolate notes. More bitter than sweet at first, but the balance changes as you drink down. Moves into milk chocolate territory, with some molasses. A tad chalky on finish. OK.

Bottle sampled at Muckfest V on 7/11/14. Pours clear brown with a medium tan head. Aroma of malt, chocolate and slight band-aid. Less band-aidy than the first batch that came out in ’06 or ’07 or whenever. Malty and caramelly flavor with some chocolate before an estery, yeasty finish.

December 18th, 2012 - I like a good chocolate based beer in December. It not only fits with the season and atmosphere (which, near the foothills of Colorado, is mostly cold, but never bitterly so) and the holidays, which fill us to bursting with sweets and sugars like an overindulgent grandmother. For these reasons I plucked the Ommegang Chocolate Indulgence off of my storage shelf to enjoy on a cold and relaxing evening, spending a lot of time before I tasted it enjoying the rich Dubbel-like smell, with the extra lacing of strawberry, cotton candy and raspberry. The theme in the aroma seems to be tart and tangy sweets, and it’s a lovely blend, showing off with fruits that lend themselves well to a coating of chocolate. Which reminds me, I don’t sense much chocolate in the aroma. At last I check the flavor to see if that’s where it’s been hiding, and here there’s a shade of a blend: raspberry chocolate, like the coffee drink, but it’s faint. The body is lighter than expected, with a mixture of sugars and savories that again reminds me of dubbels, and a long aftertaste that exhibits tart fruits. But the chocolate is faded, and sometimes invisible. That doesn’t diminish the enjoyability of the beer, but it’s not what I expected, either.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown color with a moderate tan head on there. Nose is roasty with some bread in there and just a little bit of chocolate coming through. Taste is slightly sweet without having much chocolate to it, and has the characteristic Belgian yeast to it. OK, but nothing great, and a slight misnomer, in my book.

Bottle from 2007. Dark brown pour, big light brown head. Chocolate cocoa power, roasty, and more chocolate aroma. Chocolate, roasty flavor, oxidized from age.

Bottle thanks to mcbackus. Nose is like a chocolate covered cherry, as an oxidized kinda way. Taste is watery and not much else, kind of light cocoa. Ok.

Poured from bottle into a snifter Appearance – The beer pours an almost pitch black color with a one finger of tan colored head. The head has a fantastic level of retention, slowly fading to leave a good level of lacy islands on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the beer is heaviest of a cola aroma with a good showing of molasses and caramel. A dark chocolate aroma is there, but is overall rather light being complemented by some aromas of cream aroma. Some other darker malt smells and a little bit of a dark fruit smell of fig and prune round out the overall smell. Taste – The taste begins with a sweeter dark roasted malt flavor with the sweet being mostly of a dark fruit consisting of plum and fig along with a big chocolate flavor. As the taste advances the fruit flavors fade all while a milk chocolate flavor, with hints of vanilla and cream, take its place. Some molasses flavors also join the tongue as the taste advances to the end, bringing an even higher level of sweetness to the brew. While the sweetness increases, the roastedness increases as well with, more roasted malt and a tiny bit of char coming to the tongue. In the end, with a little bit of earth that comes to the tongue, one is left with a quite sweet and smooth chocolate flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side with a carbonation level that was a bit on the higher side. The body could have likely been a bit thicker with a carbonation level that would be better slightly on the lower side. After the beer sat and the carbonation dwindled some the feel was better, but overall it needed a bit more thickness. Overall – The taste and look were quite nice –big and dark with a nice chocolate flavor, but the aroma and feel were just OK. Overall a nice beer to try, but not really worth the big bottle price of over $10.
