BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Brewery Ommegang
New York, United States
ommegang.com

Style: Belgian Dark Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.80%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
Ommegang Seduction is lovingly brewed with six dark malts. Chocolatier Callebut provides the chocolate, while Liefmans brings the cherries. This international romance is consummated with a full body, alluring aromas and flavors of Belgian chocolate, and tart cherries. Seduction is an ale to be lovingly embraced.

Beautiful, rich and smooth, roasty and malty throughout, Seduction offers balanced chocolate-cherry notes, a bit of caramel sweetness, and a long, slow finish. Seduction is welcoming and warm-hearted, gently hopped and harbors no bitterness, leaving only a lingering glow.

A - Poured to a dark brown almost black color with a half finger of light brown head.
S - Tart, acidic, dark cherries upfront followed by a very roasty malt. Medium sweet chocolate and light hints of caramel and coffee follow at the end.
T - Delicious. Medium sweet and tart black cherries, warm roasty malt, medium sweet chocolate and lightly sweet cappuccino at the end. Amazingly smooth and medium/fall bodied. Perfect winter sipping beer to be sure.
O - A five star porter. One of the best porters I've ever had in my life. I strongly urge you to try it if you can get your hands on it.
V - Very worth it.

Review #500!!

A- This comes in a very heavy glass bottle with a cork and cap system in place....very masculine! The beer is heavily dark in color....super brown and almost black to be exact. The head is thick and dense at first before settling into a generous layer over the brew....it is velvety smooth looking! Lacing is superb as thick layers of foam coat the side of my glass and becomes very sticky as it attempts to fight gravity...artistic looking for sure. What a nice looking Ale!

S- Just what it says it is....dark chocolate blended with wild tart cherries....it is very much like rich black forest cake in smell! Additional hints of licorice, dark fresh cocoa, very toasty malt and even a little funk....almost turning rummy! Super nice and not overly complex, but what is on the nose is done well!

T- The flavors follow the aromas rather closely, but more in reverse order...sweet and sour cherries is what I taste right away, followed by semi sweet chocolate, licorice tones, dark fruits, slight dark roast coffee, coconut infused cocoa, creamy yeast and some Belgian funk. Delicious and well balanced between sweet and sour!

M/O- Medium/full bodied, velvety smooth carbonation and with lots of flavor. This is a well rounded brew that is meant for aging and it is easily drinkable...my bottle was brewed Dec 2011....probably right where it is at its best in my opinion. I hope this one comes out again sometime and well worth the wait!
