It pours black with a brown head. The head last s good while and leaves plenty of lacing. There are aromas of chocolate, roasted malts, some dark fruits, with hints of hops. It has flavors of roasted malts, chocolate, hoppy flavors that are most like herbs, and coffee. It is medium bodied with a bitter punch to the palate. It has a good amount of carbonation and is moderately bitter.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice deep black color. Opaque. Scent is heavy barley and some roast malt with bitter cocoa beans. Taste has this up front bite and settled to a bitter walnut. Here?s something odd, it had the taste of eating snow as a kid too with the earthy bitter. Heavy carbonation. Tap

Take the Black hits on the exact notes you expect it to when you read the label and see how Ommegang brought it all together. It has a chocolately taste, but it’s subtle because of the hops. A good beer.
