BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Brewery Ommegang
New York, United States
ommegang.com

Style: Belgian Strong Dark Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 10.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Ommegang Adoration, brewed in the authentic style of Belgian winter, or noel beer, is dark, malty and assertively spiced.

Adoration is best sipped before a roaring fire. It would also be a tasty accompaniment to dark roasts and wild game. Even at 10% abv, the beer is well balanced and not at all hot or fiery. The dark malts give it lush, malty flavors, including coriander, orange peel, mace, cardamom and grains of paradise. Hopping is modest, as befits such a beer.

A great brew. Lots of flavor, & great, dark hints of spice with a sweet aftertaste. Never a let down with any Brewery Ommegang beers, in my opinion.

While it lacks the typical Belgian yeast flavor, it is perfectly balanced, albeit sweet, and perfection in its appearance in the glass.
