COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cherry Adam from the Wood is aged with locally grown black cherries in oak casks for 15 months. The fruit lends a sweet tartness to the finish, melding with the wood and adding a new dimension of complexity. The 2008 bottling celebrates 15 years of business for me and was aged in Bourbon and Sherry barrels. The 2009 bottling was aged exclusively in Elijah Craig Bourbon barrels.

DSG (8442) - Tel Aviv, - JUL 13, 2015
Bottle shared at a tasting at Maxís place. 2015 bottle. Dark brown with almost no foam. Lovely aroma of chocolate, cookies, caramel, vanilla, wood and cherries. Sweet and slightly tart flavor, with chocolate, cherries, cookies, caramel, vanilla and wood. Rounded mouthfeel. Alcohol is not noticeable. Great and complex.

Strykzone (5532) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUN 24, 2015
12 ounce bottle at the brewery into a tulip. Deep dark brown and mysterious looking. Only a little foam that is darker beige. Bourbon and cherry on the nose. Wood, too. Bourbon leads the flavors. Cherry right behind. Barrels bring interesting complexity. A bit of sourness and plenty of warming heat. Vinous notes. Fruit is more complex than only cherries. Some chocolate mid glass. This one comes with great memories. What a cool place.

DuffMan (7996) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 10, 2015
Bottle, 2012 vintage. Iím 100% sure I had this already, when Graham brought all those awesome HOTDs to RBAG 2013, but obviously I didnít log a rating. This is a 2012 vintage (Iím pretty sure gramityís was a 2009 bottle). Very hazy sienna hue, trace head, almost none at all. Warm bourbon and woody caramel, maybe a hint of cherries but Iím really looking here. Soft and flat, a bit boozy. Very tasty, but could use a little carbo (seems to be a common complaint around this brews!), and disappointingly muted cherry character.

Dark brown with a small off-white head. Aroma is sweet caramel, figs, vanilla, chocolate, cherries, bourbon, oak and plums. Taste is sweet with caramel, vanilla, raisin, dark berries leading to a warming finish with bourbon, oak, vanilla, toffee and cherries. Medium to full bodied, rounded and sticky mouthfeel, soft carbonation.

rxeight (1888) - Illinois, USA - MAY 8, 2015
12oz bottle, 2014. The first thing I taste is port. I donít know if that is because of they use port barrels or thatís a combination of the cherry and oak. Dark fruit but donít know if Iíd say cherry. More of a dark red wine fruit. Lots of oak. Boozy and potent yet smooth. Drank this after a bourbon county tap takeover, normally anything else would seem inferior after that lineup, but this was legit. Very enjoyable.

dresden (1153) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - APR 21, 2015
Still deep brown with a red hue. Big fruity aroma, not cherry but dark malt fruit, oak and booze. Sweet cherries, booze, sherry, soy. Very nice and lacking carb doesnít hurt this at all

Bottle pour at Pine box Seattle, havenít seen this, so I had to get it, black pour redish hint, Bourbon aroma hint of cherry, you can taste a lot of they black cherry, slight wood, a little over powering, would love to try a 2012-2011 after a lot of mellowing out. Really enjoyed this one.
