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.

Pours a deep amber to brown-ish to black color with a light brown head. In the aroma, dark fruits and candy sugar. In the taste, dark raisins, candy sugar, and a small alcohol note. A small alcohol bite, but mainly smooth, with a medium to bigger bodied mouthfeel, with a dryer dark fruit, especially raisins, and a small alcohol bite in the aftertaste. Great flavors of dark fruit, a small alcohol presence, and well, fan-freakin'-tastic!

Begins with a neutral malty base, the mouthful builds slowly as sweetness intensifies. The flavor profile begins with a toffee/caramel profile and ends with notes of chocolate. Comes to almost a crisp finish but stops with room to spare. The head retention balanced the complex flavors and transitions. Fantastic Trappist Brew.
