COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ancient mariners braved the Aegean, holds laden with figs and raisins. They faced great storms, monstrous sea creatures, and merciless pirates. But all paled compared to the Sirens, whose enchanted songs drifted to sea and drew the sailors to their end.

Our dark ale, Sirens’ Song, pays homage to the lost cargos, with figs and raisins added to the brew kettle. The resulting beer is dark, mysterious, and as irresistible as the Sirens’ seductive song.

Roasted malt and burnt sugar aromas lead, followed by flavors of dark fruit and notes of dark caramel. The finish is smooth and balanced with subtle bitterness.

Bottle. Very dark brown to near black pour with a tall, fizzy tan head. Aroma is toasted malt, cocoa, spices, dark fruit and soft yeast. Taste is dark fruit, spices, yeast notes, cocoa, caramel and toasted grains. Body is medium with a strong, bubbly and fizzy carbonation. Moderate stickiness and a light boozy warmth. Ends with more dark fruit, cocoa, caramel, toasted malt, spices and soft yeast notes.

Jabic (487) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - MAR 18, 2017
Ar: Cocoa and plum; hints of cinnamon, ginger, and sweet toffee; clean dark caramel and dusty nougat. Ap: Deep amber-brown, opaque; medium-small tan head with moderate-low retention, leaves a fuzzy ring of very fine bubbles and a thin cap of fine cover with a few large suds. T: Sweet toasted malts, with orange and juicy peach; some clove, black pepper, and dried cherry mid-palate; medium bitterness, fairly clean, with a herbal, noble character; finish is a touch tannic, with cherry and peach skins. P: Medium-full body with high carbonation; finish is dry. O: Very nice Belgian Dark Strong Ale; great mix of spice, fruit, and malt, without any oxidized dark fruit flavors weighing down the bright spice and warming malt character.

Blackish color with a tall head. Earthy, dark fruit estery aroma. Very estery. Notes of roasted barley. A bit boozy. Seems sugary, like a dark dememera, but finishes dry. Heavy carbonation.

Alpha10 (707) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 24, 2017
2017/02/24 - Pours a dark brown colour with a large, foamy, khaki head that lingers and leaves moderate lacing. Aroma is yeast, banana, clove, dark caramel, light herbal notes and dried dark fruit (raisins and figs). Taste follows nose; lots of raisins, figs, sweet caramel, spices, herbal notes, bready yeast and light alcohol. Mouthfeel is medium with lightly biting carbonation and a long finish that is dry, lightly warming, slightly medicinal. Overall pretty good, but did not enjoy the herbal and medicinal notes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

superspak (5223) - Michigan, USA - FEB 20, 2017
12 ounce bottle into signature tulip glass, bottled on 11/23/2016. Pours murky very dark brown color with a 2 finger fairly dense and fluffy light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice dense foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big raisin, plum, fig, date, cherry, apple, pepper, clove, light banana, caramel, brown sugar, brown bread, and toasted biscuit; with light nuttiness, chocolate, cocoa, coffee, herbal, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast and dark/bready/light roast malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big raisin, plum, fig, date, cherry, apple, pepper, clove, light banana, caramel, brown sugar, brown bread, and toasted biscuit; with light nuttiness, chocolate, cocoa, coffee, herbal, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Light-moderate yeast spiciness and light herbal/roast bitterness on the finish. Slight tangy yeast tartness. Lingering notes of dark fruit, pepper, clove, banana, caramel, brown sugar, brown bread, toasted biscuit, light chocolate/cocoa, herbal, and yeast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast and dark/bready/light roast malt flavors; with a great malt/spiciness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light dryness from bitter/spiciness and carbonation, lightly increasing through the glass. Medium-high carbonation and medium-full body; with a very smooth, creamy/bready/grainy, and lightly sticky/chalky balanced mouthfeel that is great. Minimal warming alcohol for 9%. Overall this is an awesome Belgian strong dark ale. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast and dark/bready/light roast malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink for the ABV. Nearly perfectly balanced between yeast and malt flavors; with very impressive complexity from both sides. A really enjoyable offering.

This kind of lacks the distinct Ommegang flavor you associate with most of their beers, but its richness is nice and reminiscent of a barleywine, but without the high ABV punch. The figs and raisins are present as promised, but not very strong. The beer itself is richer than the individual parts, and it’s a fun time.
