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.

mgermani (1000) - Vancouver, British Columbia, - AUG 14, 2012
Pours an almost black amber with no head or lace to speak of. Aroma is amazing - sweet graham cracker dominates. Cherry & vanilla also. Boozy sherry-like taste, with loads of milky chocolate. Amazing. Lingering salted caramel finish. Light carbonation. What a treat!!!

12 oz bottle. Cherries, cocoa, oak, tobacco, bourbon. No carbonation which is weird. No boozy after taste, very smooth. Rich and very unique!

2012 bottle: Long time wish list item, almost white whale status. Am while I enjoyed it quite a bit, it was not as good as Michael or Flanders Fred. Very tannic. Dark pour, nearly flat. Not al lot of cherry per se, but very winey and oakey, leathery. The cherry actually took away some complexity from Adam and the superb adam from the wood. Glad to have tried this."

McNeillR (1221) - SCOTLAND - SEP 17, 2014
Dirty dark brown, dusty soily head. Bright berry rather than cheery. Rich earthy sweetness up front but ojo Faint sweetness. Almost Ribena. Dry tartness. Vinious. Rich. Delicious. Big up on this.

Bottle, Independence Tasting, Cheers Paul for the long haul

jsquire (3468) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - SEP 13, 2014
Dark beer out of the bottle with some mahogany hints when held against the light. It poured out of the bottle almost still. Bourbon and cherry nose. Dark woody barrel flavors with lots of dark cherry fruitiness. This evokes a fruitcake and dried fruit, but it just wasn’t what I had hoped for in this beer.

NeuroPliny (151) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 11, 2014
Poured from a 330cc bottle. Shared with JB & ML. Dark mahogany-red with a red-brown head. Aroma is dark cherry, bourbon, vanilla, and dark fruit. Flavour is chocolate, cherry, oak, sweet malt, tart fruit, and hops. Medium to full body. Delicious!

neuromatt (1155) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 11, 2014
12 oz bottle courtesy of JB, served in a stem glass. Pours deep mahogany with a tiny rim of bubbles. The nose has big baked cherry, molasses and oak, along with vanilla, port and dark fruit. The flavour is moderately sweet with big cherry and molasses notes. These are paired with toffee, earth, pepper and soft hops. The finish is long and malty with molasses, huge cherries and delicate hops. On the palate it is medium-full in body with a syrupy texture and very soft carbonation. Overall, an amazing brew. Truly amazing. He cherries put it over the top. Wow. 2014-09-10

Lukaduke (2194) - Portland, Maine, USA - SEP 8, 2014
Pours a deep rusty umber color with a finger of khaki foam. The nose is layered with burnt sugar, bourbon heat, tart cherry and cocoa dusted leather. the palate follows with lots of complexity that ebbs and flows from amazing to slightly strange. But overall the big mouthcoating flavors won me over. Chocolate covered cherries, burnt sugar, leather, slight vinous acidity and lots of sweet earthy undertones that are heavily influenced by a round nutty bourbon presence.

Poured a dark brown color with aromas of raisins, caramel, booze, cherries, and some light villain. Flavors are all booze, light cherries, and some caramel.
