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.

750 ml. Black body with a frothy, beige head, slowly diminishing. Aroma of cocoa powder, char, roasted malts, anise, cherry. The flavor is lightly to moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet, lightly bitter and lightly to moderately acidic. Medium body, watery texture that turns velvety in the finish, lively carbonation. More char taste than chocolate. Tart finish with some lingering musty yeast flavor. More abrasive because of the roasted malt burnt flavors than it is advertised.

onceblind (4541) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 16, 2014
Lovely dark black pour with a foamy khaki head. Beautiful nose of sweet milk chocolate and light roasted black malts with a dose of sweet cherries. Smooth and rich and deep flavor that feautures dark roastiness and semisweet chocolate flavors, sweet cherries underneath, no bitterness and a wee bit of smokey black malt. Sweet and complex and just enough cherries to be playful, neither tart or cloying.

"this had the potential to be great, ended up just good. i dug the cherry aspect to the aroma and flavor, slightly tart, slightly sweet. the chocolate was underdone, possibly due to the fact that the belgian yeast was a little too overagressive. kinda thin palate. good flavor and aroma, coulda been great if it was a touch less overwhelmingly belgian"

This one is a strong contender in its class of chocolate ales. It is smooth and easy on the palate. Very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
