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.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - MAR 31, 2011
Bottle purchased at Chucks in Chagrin Falls last year (I donít know who traded with them to get this, but I scored 3 other HotDís and an Abyss that day). 2009 vintage. Thick black yeast deposit left in the bottle, no head at all, deep brown-red hue making it seem black. All great signs. Aroma is almost perfect. Deep roasted malt, honey, chocolate, toasted oat, vanilla and notes of heaven all in the nose. I cannot imagine the flavor getting better with age, since it has the perfect complexity and flavor after a year and a half... but I do doubt it could get worse. Flavor is like a rich deep cherry and molasses flavor. Strong notes of vanilla and wood come through with a honey-like smoothness as well as the subdued malty sweetness. God this one is amazing.

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 wasnít 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 (1154) - 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 (2184) - 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.

Leveejr (102) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 8, 2014
Pours a dark brown with no head. Smells amazing. Brandy, cherry, booze, malt, ever so slight oxidation. Taste is also outstanding. Cherry, raisiny booze and sweetness, brandy. Zero carbonation gives it an odd mouthfeel but this is one hell of a beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Heavy sipper, the nose is itís own environment, really, deep, layered, drunk from just sniffing it, not cloying in the taste, just too different from any beer, bourbon is present, but as an undertone, smooth palate, Now that Iím getting into it, black cherries, Adamís in there, yes, I can taste the base beer. Lovely. Now, all it needs is a fine cigar.

At Sethís with Seth Taylor, Stephen, and Dina. After being soda streamed, layer of cream brown head. Aroma is musky fig, raison, musky barrel. Taste is figs, dark fruits, sticky aged cherries, woody barrel, tasty. Finish is tasty sweet booze. The woody alcoholic dark fruit notes are really nice, but it is slightly too swert, maybe time would do it well.
