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.

obguthr (6233) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JAN 24, 2012
Funk and char nose. Mahogany, thick sticky beige head. Dark chocolate truffle and cherry flavor which leans toward raspberry. Peanut hulls appear when warm. Peppery bitter bite at the end, which is unwelcome given the level of bitterness already present. Off balance and wanting a little sweetness. Rather artificial.

The pour is nearly black with a pale tan, pillowy, rocky, full head which is mostly lasting and leaves thick, Belgian lace. The nose is pleasant with dark caramels, some burnt buttery toast, light cocoa, hints of tart cherries. The flavor is similar with subtle Bing cherries, buttery toast still, dry Belgian chocolate, dark caramels, and a faint earthy roast. The palate is more than medium, creamy, drying slightly, and soft to lively. The finish is drying with chocolate and cherry finally melding, fairly lingering with other notes of mineral, butter, and slight roast. Really not as complex as a Belgian or as most from the beers from this brewery and more of an easy drinker. However, the cherry and chocolate notes seem to finally mesh well by the finish which is quite long for a porter. Seduction seems like a fitting name melding fruit and chocolate as well as warming slightly with keeping such a drinkable beer. Nice addition to the vast array of beers from Ommegang.

swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JAN 23, 2012
draft at Blue Monk, disappointing. dark cola like pour. lighter bodied. feint cherry notes in an otherwise very light weak aroma. Flavor was some cherry, some chocolate, little to no roast. Watery mouthfeel. little complexity. everyone is due for an ocassional let down, i suppose

beerbastard (844) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JAN 22, 2012
750 Bottle. Very dark with tan head. Roasted grain nose with some background of chocolate. The flavor was dominated by the Ommegang house yeast. This covered up the faint cherry notes. The cocoa did slip thru along with some dark fruits. Nice silky palate. The yeast flavors stayed all the way to the finish. Too expensive. Great idea of flavors, just not balanced.

RSRIZZO (1984) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JAN 21, 2012
750ml corked and caged bottle poured into a Stem Glass at 41. Color is black with good carbonation and a thick half inch of tan head sitting on top. Aroma is a mild roasted malt scent. It has a full body that gives a lighter mouth feel. Flavor comes in with mellow roasted malt and dark chocolate then the cheery jump out with a nice tartness. In the after taste the cheery hangs on with the tart giving it a dry feel. Overall its a great brew, very complex.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 21, 2012
Pours dark brown with a white head. Smells of chocolate, rich spice, roasted malt. Tastes of rich malt, light spice, some belgian character, some smoky hints with a peppery finish.

JohnC (3008) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - JAN 21, 2012
On tap at Bru Grill in Lake Forest,this beer has very nice complexities of chocolate and cherry that complement this porter.

JaBier (7705) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JAN 21, 2012
Snifter at Gallos Tap Room on 1/18/12. Black pour with a medium tan head. Aroma of chocolate, malt, some cherry and banana. Chocolate flavor with banana esters and a cherry finish. Tasty, but could do without the banana.

DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 20, 2012
Poured into a snifter. 4.0 A: Black color. Two fingers of frothy, tan lacing that is creamy in the middle. Retention is good and lots of irregular lacing left. 3.5 S: Super chocolate-ty. The Belgian yeast comes through big time with lots of clove and pepper. Otherwise, this is dry and earthy with a moderate dark fruitiness and a slight roastiness. 3.0 T: Less chocolate-ty than the nose, but theres still a good presence. Clove and pepper are back, but arent as strong either. The roast is a bit stronger though. Light plum fruitiness. 4.0 M: Medium body. Good spritzy carbontion. Good creaminess to go along with it. Good here. 3.5 D: Tasty beer, but fairly average for the style. It could use more intensity or complexity or both. Definitely not worth $14, but give it a try if youre curious.
