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.

bottle for Beer World Catskill Pours a deep dark murky amber into my chalice. A lovely 1/2" tan head with excellent retention on top. Not much of a nose, light grass and light roastiness. Taste is lightly bittered chocolate, cocoa, and enough tart cherry to please. My wife commeted that its like a chocolate covered cherry. I guess. mouth is medium and slightly slick.

dark, reddish-brown color; sour cherry and chocolate aroma; an amazingly complex beer with flavors of roasted malt, chocolate, and sour cherries blended together for a really smooth, outstanding beer; tart, sour fruit finish; it has the dark, roasted malt of a porter, but worlds away from any traditional porter

wlajwl (7209) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - SEP 2, 2017
Aroma and flavor is cherries/fruit, big chocolate/dark chocolate, dark malts, mild/medium dark fruit, Ommegang's stock ale yeast and a slightly sweet/tart finish.

Gription79 (2892) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - DEC 24, 2016
Poured from a 750ml bottle. Chocolaty, ester filled aroma. This is a tasty, malty chocolate beer, the Belgian yeast character is subtle, yet it is prominent enough to be noticeable. Nice beer.

oldrtybastrd (5228) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 8, 2016
Medium amber colored, with aromas of roasted malts and slightly fruity. Chocolate/coffee flavor but there is a lingering cherry after taste. A very good porter.

zgaier (1968) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - MAY 4, 2016

GothGargoyle (2588) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 31, 2016
Dark brown with a pale brown head. Aroma is chocolate, spices, dark fruits. Full bodied, lightly creamy mouthfeel, lightly sweet on the palate. Taste is chocolate, plum, cherry, hint of oxidation.

jsnicholas (709) - Woodinville, Washington, USA - JAN 21, 2016
Bottle (750ml): dark with thin tan head. Some chocolate aroma. Medium plus carbonation. Light bodied. Taste was some Belgium yeast with some fruitiness and slight chocolate. A little too thin though.

emusche (209) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 16, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 24, 2016 Pours deep brown. Aromas is basically just cocoa and cherry, but not in a simple or overloaded way; still very complex and perfectly balanced. Taste is awesome: an incredible combo of dark chocolate, cocoa, and cherry that manages to be both sweet but tart and walks that line very well. Very, very good; wish it wasn’t retired. Edit: I asked Ommegang about it in March and was informed there are no plans to bring it back. :( ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

(from notes). Pours near black with a lasting tan head. S: Sweet; Dark chocolate stands out; hint of smoke. T: seductive mix of chocolate, dark fruits and toasted grains. Excellent sweetness level for flavor profile. M: full body; creamy smooth; very light bite at finish; well-chosen medium-low carbonation. O: rich and flavorful, as well as very drinkable. Highly recommended.
