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.

Pours very dark brown with small tan head. Strong coffee aroma. Tastes mostly of coffee maybe a little bitter dark chocolate but not much. Was expecting a little sweetness and got a little bitterness. Not bad, an average to slightly above average stout.

750mL bottle, pours black with a substantial tan head. Aroma of bitter dark cocoa, slight espresso and some roasted malts. The mildly bitter dark cocoa is what jumps out to the palate, with a light (for a stout) body, and a bitter dark cocoa finish. Quite nice.

Review from notes, sampled 1/2/2008 Pours a dark brown with a large head that dissipates quickly. Smell is of chocolate, some coffee, and a fruity smell from the yeast. Taste is more of the chocolate and coffee with a funk in the finish that I found unpleasant. I think it was fruity esters from the yeast and while I might enjoy that in another beer, it seemed out of place here. Mouthfeel was a bit on the thin side, carbonation on the high side. I had high hopes for this one, but I didn’t really enjoy this it.

Chocolate + beer= Willie Wonka’s Factory if it was run by Charlie Sheen. I enjoyed this beer, and its rich dark color. Its chocolatey taste and aroma was really enticing. Very enjoyable.

From a bottle poured a brown color with a fair amount of head. Sweet malty flavor with a quick finish.

From a 750ml bottle into a snifter. Pours a great, dark chocolate brown. Plenty of head which leaves a little lacing and some stuff on the top. Not much aroma at all, possibly some chalk. Mouthfeel is also great, dry and smooth with a little tang. Taste is dry, with coffee, cocoa and .... that’s about it. Overall, an OK beer but I won’t buy again.

Pour is black with a thin brown head. Lacing is decent when the head fades into nothingness. Aroma is bitterness with some dark Belgian chocolate. Flavor is like a Irish dry stout with a slight bitterness in the finish. Aftertaste is of pure dark chocolate.

Scrapersnbeer (1532) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 4, 2013
Obvious chocolate aroma - specifically hot (okay, cold) cocoa, and some dark malt and fruit background. Dark brown with dark tan head. Sweet chocolatey flavor, less complex than expected. Thick and oily body, a palate jammer. Could stand to be more bitter...and where do those Belgians get their chocolate?

Pours black with two fingers of cream head in a snifter. Pretty ok. A bit thinner on the mouthfeel than I wold want with a stout, and the chocolate isn’t nearly as pronounced as advertised. It’s there, but you have to do a bit of searching. They did a good job with accenting the belgian qualities, but the chocolate and stout elements seem to be a bit too understated for my taste. Don’t hate it, but wouldnt buy again.
