COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A BELGIAN LOVE AFFAIR Ommegang Seduction is lovingly brewed with six dark malts. Chocolatier Callebut provides the chocolate, while Liefmans brings the cherries. This international romance is consumated 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.

> Dark cherry, olive, cinnamon bread Belgian porter

[ Bottle ][ Pizza Port Bottle Shop ][ 750mL ][ $13 ][ Woodshop Snifter ][ 3/22/14 ]
>> Listed as a Belgian Porter on the label, not sure why this is in Belgian Ale. Pours clear, deep red with excellent tan foam. Fizzier retention. Nose is kalamata olive, cinnamon bread, dark cherry, olive loaf. Taste is rich cinnamon bread, olive, dark cherry, mild cocoa, kalamata olive juice. Strange beer, it sort of works. Definitely drinkable.

>!< too much olive, not in the right category

An aroma of pear, prune, raisin, mild cherry and mild coffee malt. Appearance is dark brown, nearly black, with thin chocolate milk colored foam, some lace. Taste is of sweet raisin, balanced with mildly bitter dark chocolate and some burnt malt. Palate is fizzy, but just a little thin. Overall, a very good beer!
