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.

Pours with moderate viscosity. Very dark with a thin tan head. The nose is dominated by the signature of Belgian yeast but there are notes of chocolate and roastiness as well. On the palate there is significant milk chocolate sweetness balanced by roasted astringency and the zest of the Belgian yeast. Pretty tasty.

weihenweizen (1694) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JUN 15, 2014
Refrigerated 75 cl brown bottle, bottled on December 5, 2011, corked and capped poured into a tulip. Pours dark brown with big light brown head. Aroma is chocolate/roast, medium body, medium carbonation, and good big bubble lacing. Taste is chocolate, some fruit (mostly cherries), and long roasty slightly herbal hop finish. This is a good porter and holds up well.

Shot (132) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - JUN 13, 2014
From a 750 ml bottle. Pours dark brown, like a cola, with a thick, beige head. Aromas of Belgian yeast, chocolate and caramel. Flavors are milk chocolate, vanilla, with plum, raisin and licorice. Cocoa in the finish. Slight hop bite. Creamy mouthfeel, but not heavy or sticky. Malty and delicious. This is a really, really nice brew.

Jamesthebrit (253) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 13, 2014
After Chocolate Indulgence was so bad my hopes are.... meh. Let’s do this thing. Smells like... acidic wine. Maybe like acidic coffee? Acidic chocolate? Appearance is a bit like a brown ale. Dark brown. Head is more fine that chocolate indulgence. Taste is better than CI. A bit of chocolate in there. Dry chocolate. A bit more like a porter in it’s metalic note. Palate is medium body but very agressive with the carbonation. Again not an amazing beer but better than chocolate indulgence. Maybe more stout than CI. Don’t pay $15 for this. Don’t!!!!!!

AgentAle (638) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 28, 2014
Aroma is deep sweet malts, apple, raisins, caramel and plum. Taste is similar with a roasty maltiness, caramel and some hints of Belgian sugar candy and finishes with a slightly warm liquor snap. The malt body carries through nicely. Appearance is a very dark amber with a head with bubbly light brown head thst retains well.

From BA review from 2-11-12 - Served on tap in a 10 oz chalice Appearance – A deep brown color with a very light just off white head. The head fades leaving a thin film on the surface of the beer and a very small amount of lacing. Smell – A nice bitter chocolate aroma is initially present. These mix with a sweet cherry aroma which lightens the bitter chocolate giving a sweeter chocolate aroma. Taste – Sweet chocolate flavor hits the tongue initially. The sweet chocolate mingles with dark fruit flavors in the middle of the taste. The fruit is largely cherry, but some raisin and prune are in there as well. The flavors blend, but not in the best way, bringing an almost artificial cherry flavor of a cherry cordial. The sweetness seems to start to fade toward the end however, turning more bitter and leaving a slightly bitter chocolate flavor which is more agreeable with the tongue then the sweet cherry chocolate flavor. Mouthfeel – Rather thick for the strength of the brew. It has good body and carbonation which makes it quite easy drinking and enjoyable. Overall – A rather nice brew, but there are better of its class and for its price (bottle or draft) there are better choices out there.
