COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ommegang XV celebrates our 15th year and honors some of the world’s most desired ales. The dark Trappist ales of Belgium are made with the simplest of ingredients yet offer richly complex aromas and flavors. Ommegang XV uses on the finest malts, Ommegang yeast, and a touch of hops, creating a fine ale that will age superbly.

Certainly nothing wrong with it but also not particularly complex or interesting, which I expect from both Ommegang and anything "Belgian-style".

750 c&c from Half Time. Pours dark brown with a decent tan head. Aroma of dark fruits - raisin/prune - with a lot of dark malt accompanying it. Not pulling out hop? Med + body. Flavor is dark malt, definitely raisin/prune, with a little alcohol burn down the gullet. Seems to have some yeast/spice input - little bit of fruity ester. Maybe even some chocolate towards the finish, which is not excessively sweet. Quite delicious.

TheBeerGod (5342) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JAN 6, 2013
Bottle - 750mL corked and caged. Opaque dark brown with a medium, dense brown head. Aroma is ripe dark fruits, Belgian yeast, candied fruit, soft spices, toasted grains and sweet malt. Taste is ripened dark fruits, candied fruit notes, yeast, sweet malt, caramel, toasted grains, dark bread, cocoa and soft booze. Body is medium-full with a moderate, creamy carbonation and mild warmth. Light stickiness as well. Finishes with more dark fruit notes, candyish notes, toasted malt, dark bread, yeast and soft boozy notes. Tasty!

BroSpud (1741) - , Massachusetts, USA - DEC 25, 2012
750ml corked bottle. Dark pour with a creamy tan head. Nice looking and flavorful brew with alot of dark fruit flavors which mask most of the alcohol taste from the high ABV.

Glad to be the stat locker on this one. Pours thick deep blackish brown with minimal khaki head. Nose is roasty malt, blackberry, yeasty black currant, hops, cacao, spices of the x-mas variety. Tastes fruity, with blackberry, currants, yeasty underlying esters, mild cacao, mild hops, mild funk, dark malt, and a rich smooth flavor. This one is complex and perhaps less yeasty and funky and more fruit-forward (and, yes, I know there is no fruit in this), and works very well for me. This beer would kick ass with a fruit and cheese plate and any red meat dish. For me, I’m going to pair my 2nd bottle tomorrow with spicy Hunan pork, and I cannot imagine how good pork loin would be marinated in this stuff. Mmmm.
