Seduction’s flavors are a swirl of brash chocolate, warm dark malts, and fizzy sour cherries (in that order). It’s a fitting name for this brew, and a fitting brew to write about with Valentine’s day coming up!
This dark Belgian porter is made for richness, brewed with real cocoa from Callebaut and cherries from Liefmans. The dark malts work nicely to tie things together, with a little sprinkle of hops that gives it a little sparkle but leaves no lingering bitterness. The aftertaste is almost like a cherry cordial, but without the jelly goop that often leaves them sitting lonely in the chocolate box.
Conclusion: Pricey but it’ll quench any thirst for dark beers with a twist, be sure to serve it in a glass! A great beer lover’s Valentine gift, and would pair well with a box of chocolates or a slice of rich dessert like mousse or chocolate cheesecake. Take 5 Ommegang!
