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.

Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 18, 2012
Draught. Dark brown with a thin head. The aroma is weak, underdeveloped. Light chocolate and the cherry is weak and artificial. None of this comes together well. A going nowhere beer. The sugars aren’t full, and in a beer that is going to rely on richness that is a big mistake.

750 c&c from Beverages 4 Less in Santee, CA. Pours dark brown with a creamy light tan head. Light chocolate aroma. Med body more or less. Mild chocolate flavor over some dark fruit and polished dark malt. For me it doesn’t really match the description.
