Ommegang "Seduction"
Brewery Ommegang - Cooperstown, New York USA
Belgian Style Porter (ABV 6.8%) (IBU 26)

[Best served in a Trappist glass]

Rating: 3.9/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 8/10
Palate: 4/5
Overall: 16/20

The pour was a thick dark brown with ruby highlights and a large (2-3 finger) light brown creamy head that was mostly lasting, receding down to a large fluffy cap with excellent sheets of sticky streaky lacing.

The aroma was of a roasted chocolate malt, a resin hop and a dark leathery yeast with notes of chocolate, coffee, molasses and a bit of cherry.

The taste was malty sweet and mildly bitter with notes of molasses and chocolate from the onset, and then progressed slowly into a more pronounced bitterness with some nice coffee and cherry characteristics. The flavor lasted a nice long while, allowing the chocolate, cherry and coffee flavors to meld together nicely.

Mouthfeel was slightly under full in body with a dry creamy texture and an almost medium carbonation.

Overall I have to say this brewer has done it again, this time with a fantastic twist on an old style Porter...
