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.

Location/Date:Last beer and rating of January 2012! Bottle shared with Dave on January 31st, 2012.

Appearance: Pours a dark black with light white head.
Aroma: Aroma is malty and sweet of chocolate and cherry.
Taste: Some bitterness with roastiness, chocolate and some cherry but not overbearing.
Palate:Lighter body than most porters, lingering aftertaste.

Summary: A pretty good porter, lighter in body than some, and a nice way to finish out a night of drinking with something slightly sweet.

I thought this was really good...huge nose that’s sweet, chocolaty, and smooth. Body is relatively thin, but still has a ton of flavor. Chocolate is there again as well as a substantial roasty-nuttiness that’s very enjoyable. Lingers on your palate for a while.

Draft at Belgian Cafe with Pat. Pours a pitch black with some nice spicy aroma to it. Dried fruits mixed with slight chocolate aromas. Taste is slightly smokey, nicely fruity, with just a little bit of chocolate. relatively low alcoholic content lets you enjoy.

750mL bottle. Poured medium-deeper brown with a tall, fluffy beige head.. lots of sticky lacing followed it down. The aroma picked up a blend of sweeter and darker, somewhat smoked chocolates along with cherry dust and earthy/fruity yeast.. soft overall, and the chocolates were really nice. The flavor was also chocolate-centric, with dry, lightly-smoked cocoa leading.. fruity yeast and a hint of cherry around.. chocolate-covered cherries really shined in the end, joined by a kiss of vanilla.. tasty stuff. Medium-bodied at most on the palate, and well-carbonated.. on the dry side and a little grainy.. this came together well as it warmed up and progressed through the palate.

A cloudy chalky brown with a nice dirty head. Belgian yeast aroma, uncharacteristic of the color. The taste is like a Belgian style cocoa chocolate beer. It has a full flavor and body and a chalky finish. I’m not tasting all the adjuncts in here.

Delicious and mellow porter. Aroma was so so. Was expecting more. Notes of sour cherry and a slight roastiness, but not much else. Was hoping for more chocolate. Pour was a nice deep dark brown with a one finger tan head. Taste was OK. Wasn’t very full flavored. The strong carbonation drowns out any flavor. No chocolate was present.There was just roasted bitter malt and a sour cherry aftertaste. The cherry wasn’t sweet, it was sour and finished bitter. Still a good beer, though. Heavy carbonation. Was expecting more
