I love this as a seasonal ale, but there are definitely Strong Ales I like more. That being said, the spicy character of this brew will definitely appeal to you if, like me, you enjoy spicy teas without honey.

Ommegang Adoration has a thin-to-medium cream-colored head, very little lacing, a murky, rust-orange appearance, and lots of tan chunks floating about. The aroma is of assorted spices, spiced bread or cake, dark fruits, such as raisin, and low bitterness. Sweetness and alcohol abound. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy, and Ommegang Adoration finishes semi-wet and somewhat boozy. RJT

Pours amber to brown with fine, lacy head. Not overpowering in odor but pleasant, with stone fruit and malt predominating. Velvety moth feel. Sweet and rich taste. This is like a mild Quad. Very pleasant beer. Hides the hefty alcohol content well.

Appears as the bottle design may have changed from what’s pictured. Not a huge fan if Belgian beers this one may be slightly above average but not with the price premium imo

Wanted to like it more, but, to me, they overdid it. The variety and amount of spices led to a muddle. Either that, or I didn’t let it breath enough. I got the alcohol and some dark malt but my tongue became confused after that.

Fritz123 (1535) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - DEC 19, 2014
Bottle from Total Wine. in Boca. Home pour in a snifter. Pours a deep black cherry stained wood with an excited two finger head. More fizzy than pillow. Aroma is caramel, coriander, orange zest, Belgian yeasts, and leather. The taste is similar with the spices and orange zest. Heavy carb...just a little much in my opinion. Very sprite carbonation. Finish is warm and yeasty.

high_on_hops (805) - Burlingame, California, USA - DEC 16, 2014
Pours a ruddy, dark amber with a tan head and lacing. It has a complex spice aroma with corainder, cardamon, and orange. The flavor is malt and spices up front with a orange and spice sweet finish over a medium body.

Shag (2765) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - DEC 14, 2014
A mutky brown with a beige head. Aroma contains some wheat, orange, and spices. The flavor is malty with some chocolate, candy oranges, and spices. The aftertaste is a bit sour and malty. There is a very different taste to this beer I cant put my finger on. Is it grains of paradise? Overall good.
