Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: generallee on 11-20-2012

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.

Let's start with I'm a die hard stout fan. I thought it smelled fantastic but wasn't impressed with its overall finish. Surprisingly I got it off the clearance rack 4 $10.99. So I thought it was cool. But no where near the rating of outstanding.
