COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Chocolate Indulgence offers a thick tan head of foam meeting atop a rich deep hued liquid. The aroma immediately speaks of dark chocolate and dark malts. The gentle herbal nose of pearl hops compliments the darker aroma notes, making this beer fully savory to all senses.

MartinT (9592) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 30, 2007
My Bottom Line:
Roasted malts morph into dark chocolate, as various dark fruit render complexity to this plump yet drinkable Belgian-style Stout.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam decorates the brown-sleeved blackness.
-Carbonation is comfortable and helps the round mouthfeel to build an authentically Belgian mouthfeel.
-Roasted malts and leafy hops proffer enough bitterness in the finish to create balance.
-Roastiness is rather intense, creating vegetal allusions at times.

Bottle.

pours black with nice lacing and a large creamy tan head. wonderful aroma fresh baked chocolate chip cookies...slightly burnt. flavor is chocolaty and lightly bitter with a touch of fruit and yeast. a medium bodied beer. low carbonation, almost milky. not too robust in flavor but just enough. aroma is my favorite quality. leaves a nice powdered cocoa aftertaste.

Bottle from Capones. Onyx pour with minimal dark brown seeping out thru direct light, and a huge, fluffy, 3-finger or so dark brown head. This one looks great. Aroma is chocolate malt, cacao, chocolate syrup, nuts, figs, brown sugar, and some funky notes. Tastes chocolate malty, w chocolate syrup, cacao, figs, raisins, and nuts. Stays somewhat sweet, with a rich, complex palate, and mild notes of funky yeast toward the end. I enbjoyed this one a lot.

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 28, 2007
Pitch black, lacy off-white head with a lasting cover. Powdery, chocolatey, light vanilla-like nose is quite coherent and well-integrated. Roastiness is also rather present in mouth where its wears a cocoa cloak. Strong chocolate flavours all throughout. Moderately high effervescence. Medium bodied. Minimal vegetal undertones. A chocolate beer indeed, it has some components of a stout, but Id hardly call it a stout and it has a certain Belgian feel to its yeastiness, but cant be compared to the few Belgian black ales. Unique and interesting, but I imagined it better, more special and above all more complex for this high-end market it is aimed at.

750ml bottle. I actually missed this at the BCTC festival this year because I was busy falling out of chairs and annoying people I didnt know back at camp. So its pretty cool that its out now and I get a chance to try it, even if people werent too impressed at the festival. Nose is pretty much straight cocoa and mocha, which is quite nice, and maybe theres a little bit of ash in there as well. Low carbonation, which isnt much of a problem, and the first taste is a little sweet. Theres a good amount of milk chocolate and cocoa in there, for sure, but also some "bottle" flavors - sort of a glass and plastic flavor, if that makes any sense. Mild and subtle, its fresh and lightly sweet, not heavy in any way. I enjoyed it.
