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.

Gachupines (1211) - USA - MAR 20, 2013
Deep, dark brown with a thick tan head. Aroma is slight dark fruit with a strong earthy malt character underneath. The flavor is dark roasted malt with a bit of dark fruit (maybe a bit of plum). Light toffee and a slightly burnt finish. Aftertaste is a little bitter, but not unpleasant.

Boutip (5680) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 16, 2016
Bottle: Poured a clear brown color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some great lacing. Aroma of candi sugar, dry fruits with candy ester is quite sublime. Taste I also a great mix of candi sugar with some dry fruits notes with some candy-like ester and a slight peppery finish. Body is about average for style with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Great beer and probably something Ommegang can pull out in their sleep.

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 15, 2015
Pours a dark chestnut brown color with plum hues and a one finger beige head that has great retention, only slowly settling into a lasting cap/ring. Splotchy lacing left behind. Slightly smokey, chalky aroma with dark malt sweetness and estery Belgian yeast notes. Hints of plum, raisin and fig along with subtle oak, caramel and roasted chooclate malt. Medium bodied with a dry, slightly chalky texture and a nice balance of peppery spice, sweet and roasted malt and estery dark fruit notes. Subtle roast with chocolate, caramel and toffee flavor along with faint peppery spice. Lots of dark fruit sweetness on the back end with vinous grape, cherry, currant raisin and plum. Nicely balanced with a slightly dry finish. Complex and flavorful with a well masked ABV making it very easy to drink. Another nice beer from Ommegang.

ben4321 (5396) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 23, 2015
Location: 750ml bottle procured at Buy Rite a couple years back, 10/23/15

Aroma: The nose is a bit boozy considering the age, dark fruit, chocolate, and Belgian yeast
Appearance: Pours a brownish color with a slight amber hue, murky, beige head, light lacing
Flavor: It tastes medium sweet, similar to the nose, with the dark fruit, chocolate, and booze
Palate: Medium-plus body, fairly lively on the carbonation front, a bit of stickiness and a little heat
Overall Impression: Since the bottle claims it would cellar well, I gave it some time, but my cellar is getting low, so it was finally time to pull this one out. Opens up nicely around the desired temperature, do not serve this one too cold or the flavors will be too muted. Overall, there’s a lot to like here, but it doesn’t quite live up to the best Belgian examples that is is attempting to replicate.

bg80 (84) - California, USA - OCT 16, 2015
Very Happy with this bottle. When cold, the carbonation is strong and balances out the smooth sweetness. Complex aroma and flavors. When warm, you can really enjoy the palate and warm booze. Goes head to head with Trappist dark ales.

falco242 (365) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 5, 2015
Sat on a bottle for a few years. Heavy hitter with lots of molasses and burnt sugar and bread and tobacco. Age did it well and it shows its abv but not in a bad way.
