750 ml bottle shared among 3 people... pours a dark black with a one finger tan head. aromas of roasted malts and chocolate as the name suggests. Nice and smooth over the palate with a medium to thick body that carries the robust chocolate flavor all the way through the finish. Almost velvety.... a very good Belgian style stout... excellent.... although a bit pricey.

750 ml. brown Belgian bottle. Corked & caged. Weak pop released the cork. Poured out the same color as Guinness stout, a deep chocolate brown. Aromas are fairly average, nothing stands out above anything else. Some cocoa powder in the nose. Flavors are about as youd expect, since it is a stout after all. Nothing special here, just another gimmick as far as Im concerned. Sorry, I just dont get it. Certainly not worth the hype around this beer. Average beer at best.

Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - DEC 24, 2007
THOUGHTS: Been waiting a while to try this one. It didnt disappoint. While it wasnt 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 07 - What an utter disappointment. I really dig everything that Ommegang makes but this wasnt good in any sense of the word. A nose of bakers 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 wasnt 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. Wheres the indulgence in chocolate, because I sure in the hell couldnt taste it. You want chocolate indulgence, go with Rogues Chocolate stout or Youngs Double Chocolate stout. If you want a bloody mess of a beer, here ya go.

On tap at McGregors. 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 McGregors. 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 its 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!

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 Ive had. Arcadia Cocoa Loco Triple Chocolate Stout and Lion Stout are the only other two Ive 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.
