BEER INFO

Brewed by:

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.

12oz bottle. Pours a dark hazy rusty brown with a large lasting beige head. Aroma is of sweet caramel malt, brown sugar, some mild banana and fruity notes, spices, a bit of orange peel and sweet alcohol notes. Taste same as aroma, with some, yeast mild and bitterness. Palate is a medium to full body with good carbonation. Finishes the same as taste with a fairly good amount of alcohol and slightly dry with bitterness on the end for balance. Seems to finish a bit on the bitter side. Overall a good drinking winter brew.
