A Note on This Beer
Today’s Bourbon Barrel Aged Adoration from New York’s Brewery Ommegang was crafted to help craft fiends survive the winter - even if they live in the tropics.
Original Adoration is one of BeerAdvocate’s Top 50 Belgian Strong Ales in the world. It’s the flagship seasonal that helped earn Ommegang Best Mid-sized Brewery at the World Beer Cup, and today’s BBA version brings even more boozy deliciousness. One sip of its deep spice and candied orange flavors and 11% ABV and you’re immediately transported to an overstuffed chair in front of a roaring fire.
Dates and figs dance across the palate, while swirls of chocolate and citrus mingle with subtle notes of vanilla. Sip slowly and let the oak and warming whiskey from over 6 months in Buffalo Trace barrels drive the chill away from even the frostiest evenings.
So when if feels like winter will never end, build a nice fire, curl up under your comfiest blanket, and reach for a bottle of Adoration. Sipping this brew is guaranteed to keep you toasty until spring.
