Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Ommegang XV pays homage to the great Trappist ales brewed by monks in the Trappist monasteries of Belgium. Created with deep devotion to the brewing art, using the finest ingredients and made with infinite care, XV is unlike any ale we've ever brewed. Even by our exacting standards Ommegang XV stand alone.

Ommegang XV pours a deep walnut hue, with a ruby highlight, full head, and lively carbonation. The nose is malty and complex. Flavors of toffee and chocolate arise, mingling with molasses and caramel as the ale warms. Fruity esters and hints of raisin follow. The body is full and finishes with creamy smoothness.

The pour was nice and dark with a long lasting, no everlasting dirty cream head.
Typical Belgium yeast aroma with some added malts. There was definitely something else in the nose, but I have not been able to identify it.

The taste was soft with some fullness, but not a lot of character.
The aftertaste was the same, soft, some fullness, but nothing really shinning.

It may be just because I am not a big fan of Belgium style beers
