Ommegang Adoration

Ommegang Adoration Special Winter Ale.  Poured a reddish brown color with a monster head......maybe too much carbonation.  Smells of carmel, malt, citrus, and spice.  First taste was pretty good just what I would expect from Ommegang.  Tastes of malt and spice with a little bitterness at the beginning and definitely some alcohol (coming in at 10% abv).  I like it a lot.  One of the best I've had.  Samuel Smith Winter Welcome is still my favorite in this style but the Ommegang is a close second.  I picked it up at Vintage Estates in Youngstown, OH for $14.99 for a 750ml bottle.  Definitely worth the price and then some.
