Pours jet black with a tight brown head. Aroma is of cocoa and yeast, more cocoa than yeast though. Tastes strongly of dry cocoa powder and mild roastiness. Full-bodied and a smooth, creamy texture and active mouth-carbonation, Ommegang Chocolate Indulgence finishes dry but not bitter. Bamaboy1975 (242) - Suffolk, Virginia, USA - MAY 12, 2013
Pours pitch black color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy dark tan head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of cocoa, dark chocolate, roasted malt, light char, raisin, prune, toast, toffee, earth, floral, clove, and yeast spiciness. Damn nice aromas with great balance, strength, and complexity of chocolate, dark malt, and fruity ester notes. Taste of cocoa, dark chocolate, roasted malt, raisin, prune, caramel, toast, toffee, earth, light clove, and yeast spiciness. Lingering notes of cocoa, dark chocolate, roasted malt, dark fruit, caramel, toast, toffee, earth, light clove, and yeast spiciness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance and complexity of chocolate, roasted malt, and yeast ester flavors; with nice robustness; and zero cloying flavors present after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a creamy and lightly slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice Belgian style ale! Great balance and complexity of chocolate, roasted, and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth to sip on. A very enjoyable offering. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone jvmiller (558) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - JAN 23, 2009
I thought this was a near perfect beer. It was so light and smooth, velvety. Hints of belgian sugars, light cocoa. So easy to drink and enjoyable. Not overly sweet at all, just perfectly balanced. I enjoyed every sip of this one. Truly wonderful. milljam (682) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 25, 2009

Pours a big black color which lets basically no light through. Has a nice 1-finger head that loofs like frothed chocolate milk and has incredible retention and lacing.
Has a nose of heavy chocolate with big malty and yeasty smells coming through. Has a bit of smoke in there, combined with a faint touch of alcohol, that gives it an almost scotch-like smell.
Tastes of lots and lots of dark, dark chocolate. Some dark fruits like figs and big, sweet cherries. Light coffee notes dancing around in there. Not much of an alcohol taste, but you get the feeling it’s pretty powerful at about the halfway point.
In the mouth this feels smooth, creamy and wonderful. Like a goth girls well kept favorite black velvet coat.
This is a pretty darn easy drinking beer. I think it would creep up on you though, if you didn’t watch yourself.

An extremely smooth beer, the title tells it all! A very nice chocolate flavor, leaving wanting for more! turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - MAY 17, 2008
Poured black with a huge, thick, creamy brown head.
Rich, roasty chocolate aroma.
Flavor is creamy, rich and roasty with a light metalic flavor at the end.
Good beer! Aubrey (3516) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - DEC 22, 2008
A sticky tan head floated on top of an inky blackness. Alluring aromas of dark chocolate and white cake wafted from the glass. Mouthfeel was rich and velvety, like rabbit fur. Flavors and aromas were wonderfully balanced and complementing. They did not smack you in the face with boldness, but they were nice. Notes of dark chocolate, tobacco, toffee, milk, sugared espresso and doughy yeast swirled together into a profusion of heaven on the tongue. It all seemed to work well together, too. A chocolaty bitterness followed and provided even more balance. What a great Belgian-style stout. pubscout (30) - Perth Amboy, New Jersey, USA - DEC 4, 2009
A nice chocolatey/coffeeish beer with which to finish a holiday meal--if you can’t get Utopias. Better yet, have both. I found it to be very pleasant to the taste and very smooth on the palate. Its flavor improved as it warmed. Nice to give as a gift to a lover of good beer--especially a stout/porter person. But infinitely better to receive...
