Ommegang XV Belgian

  • SRM Color : 24
  • Brewer: Brewery Ommegang
  • Brewer's Description:  Ommegang XV pays homage to the great Trappist ales brewed by monks in the Trappist monasteries of Belgium. Created with deep devotion to the brewing art, using the finest ingredients and made with infinite care, XV is unlike any ale we've ever brewed. Even by our exacting standards Ommegang XV stand alone.
  • Recommended Glassware: A Tulip
  • Russ' rating: 9.5 of 10
  • With the brew: Limited Opportunities!
  • Comments: This was Ommegang's limited edition anniversary brew celebrating the 15th anniversary. Given the opportunity,  I will put a bottle (or more) in the cellar. This was a fantastic representation of the style and I would love to see how Ommegang stacks up to the aging process. The pour was a dark and caramel color with a neat head of average size ( 0.5mm - 0.7mm ) bubbles. There was a nice wet lacing to the bottom of the glass. This was a very pleasant beer. The nose had notes of yeasty earthiness and malty sweetness. The drink was everything you would want from a Belgian Dark Ale. It was at once sweet with a malty note and earthy with the yeast signature. I am excited to see ow this brew ages in the cellar. Te initial impression is of an already mature brew that can only improve with age.
