Beertography Subject: Ommegang Chocolate Indulgence

Pours a dark brown, almost black body, with a decent size beige head that has great head retention and lacing. Nose is faint, but the characteristics are spot on. Bitter dark chocolate malts with a notes of sweet vanilla, earthy hops, cocoa nibs, dark fruits become more noticeable as it warms, and a hint of spicy Belgian yeast. The name describes it perfectly as this is a chocolately motherload. Upfront flavors are bitter chocolate malts, some coffee notes, dark fruits, and very little Belgian yeast. Not too complex, but a great beer nonetheless. Finishes with an herbal/earthy hop bitterness and slightly warm from the ABV. Mouthfeel is medium-full body; creamy texture; low carbonation. Overall this is a great Belgian Dark Ale and perfect for any chocolate lover or for dessert.
