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.

Black with a lingering tan head. Aroma is malty with a slight hint of dark chocolate. Flavor is malty, and a little bitter like an average stout. Theres a bit of a bittersweet finish to it as well. Chocolate flavors are subdued and hard to notice at first. I could deal with more chocolate flavor in this one especially with the name given to it. Generally, this is a fairly pleasant beer, but I was a bit disappointed in it.

KAF (448) - Coralville, Iowa, USA - JAN 24, 2008
On tap at the Blue Nile in Minneapolis. Very dark brown pour with a finger thick head that reminds you of hot chocolate. Roasted malt aroma with shaved dark chocolate and cocoa. Very smooth body. The flavor is not as strong in the chocolate feel as the aroma. There may be some dark fruit and maybe black walnut in here.

Bottle from Douglas88. Pours a clear dark brown. It is chocolate, aint no question. The only problem is that this was very thin. The chcolate flavor was clear and present but there was little else and did I mention it was thin. If this had more mouthfeel it would have been much better.

750ml bottle courtesy of MrBendo. Pour is black with ruby highlights and a one inch tan head. Head had decent retention. Aroma of cocoa and dark chocolate roasted malt. I also detect some earthy vegetable notes as well. An interesting nose, to be certain. Taste has more of an old coffee taste then the cocoa chocolate. In fact, the chocolate was barely perceptible in the taste. A little bit on the bland side. Palate was pretty thin, certainly not as big as expected. Finish is dry and chalky. This was drinkable, but not terribly exciting. Was more or less a straight forward Dry Stout to me.

Thanks to WeeHeavySD for sharing this. Pretty interesting ale - aroma is chocolate and metal. The flavor was similar, with a strong metallic taste that didnt work with us. Palate was thin and watery, making for a rather uninteresting beer. Worth a try though.

750 ml bottle thanks to xnoxhatex for bringing this. Pours a dark brown with a light brown head that stays around for quite a while. Bakers chocolate and cocoa in the nose with some funkiness roasted malts. Wow this tastes like chocolate. Like pure cocoa powder. A light bitterness and roastiness from the cocoa. But really sweet. This is a desert that would be best at two or three sips, anything else and youve had enough. Interesting beer though.

Drink4Satan (677) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 17, 2007
Pours opaque dark brown with a medium light brown head that leaves good lacing and retains well. The aroma is of baking cocoa, roasted coffee and some sour fruity notes. The flavour brings a metallic tang to the picture, which destroys the cocoa finish and assults the sides of the tongue. The mid-palate flavours include bitter chocolate, sour, yet roasted coffee and cardboard. Medium to thin bodied with a finish that gets longer as it warms. A bit of a dissapointment from such an outstanding brewery.

zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 1, 2007
Bottle purchased at Sam the Beer Man in Binghamton, NY. Pours Black brown, light tan head. Aroma is coffee, pine, vanilla, chocolate, molasses. Flavor is the same with anise, metal, burnt coffee. This bottle was over-priced at $9.99. It was more expensive than the other Ommegang brews. Disappointing.

shrubber85 (10958) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - DEC 30, 2007
Bottle. Chocolate malt aroma - mildly astringent. Dark reddish brown color with small head. Chalky chocolate malt flavor. A bit rough and on the weaker side.

pnista (1007) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - JAN 2, 2008
Dark dark brown to black with a thick light brown head. Creamy. Cocoa powder? Dry light subtle sweetness, not a lot going on. Creamy full mouthfeel. Light body. Not bad, but not good. Cocoa power in particular sticks out. Not huge flavor. Maybe a slight Belgian twinge. A bit sweet. Not distinctive or really that good. Bitter roast finish.
