Seduction – Ommegang (NY, USA)

Seduction – Ommegang, 6.8% ABV, (Cooperstown, NY)

On the side label:

“Ommegang seduction is a temptingly roasted ale brewed with five dark barley malts, Belgian chocolatier Callebut provides the chocolate , while Liefmans cuvee brut brings the cherries. With alluring aromas and flavors of fine Belgian chocolate and an underlying flavor note of tart cherries, Ommegang seduction is an ale to be lovingly embraced . Undeniably rich and smooth , seduction is also true and warm-hearted. Lightly hopped, it harbors no bitterness, leaving only a lingering glow.”

Tasting notes: pours dark cloudy brown with sediment and a massive creamy head, sticky lacing. Thick malts on the nose. Tastes of roasted coffee, bitter chocolate, malts, red cherries, and a invasive alcoholic backdrop. Pretty good, once is enough.
