Early batches of Adam From the Wood were aged in bourbon barrels for over 7 years, while the 2011 release spent 3-4 years in Elijah Craig bourbon barrels. Occasionally available draft and bottles at the brewery only in limited quantities.

Pours murky dark brown with a small head that’s gone quick. The aroma has toffee, caramel, alcohol, oak, brown sugar and is kinda burly overall. It has a full thick body that’s lush and no really any carbonation. The flavor starts with soy sauce, toffee, alcohol, wood, berries and sugary syrup. The finish has weird flavors that seem off to me. There is also barrel and alcohol. I thought this was okay, but expected more from the hype.

2011 bottle. WOW. I am so glad I waited for this one. The cap pops with a pssst. Carbonation,Yay! It pours a very dark brown color with a small but lasting khaki head. The aroma has wet wood, rum soaked raisins, sherry, chocolate fudge and light smoke. The flavor is infinitely complex without being messy or cloying. Light smoke and wet wood hits the palate first with nice notes of rum raisin and sherry coming through before more smoke and chocolate with plum and hints of lightly tart prunes in the finish. Wood, dark fruit and very light vanilla in the aftertaste. This is an unbelievably good beer. HotD comes through with some mind benders once and a while, and this is certainly one of them.

Bottle from trade. pours dead flat with absolutely no head or carbonation. Nose is a thick tobacco with a ton of dark fruit, vanilla, dried fruit, oh, and some booze. amazingly smooth for such a high boost beer. very smooth warming that is a secondary effect and only in the ears, doesn’t burn in the chest. Mouthfeel is slightly sweet, enhanced by no carbonation. flavor is dried fruit, booze, vanilla, slightly cherry. overall, the lack of carbonation really kills this beer. even just a touch of carbonation and this beer would be a 4.5 or higher. kinda shame really.

Salmoniform (657) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - MAY 27, 2014
Poured 2014 from bottle to snifter. Dark hue with no head. Aroma is ethanol, wood, raisins, smoke, tobacco, prunes, caramel. Mouthfeel is good with a medium body but no carbonation. Taste is sweet throughout with a wood astringent following and a hot ethanol finish. Overall this will be a really nice brew after it sits in the bottle for a few years and carbonates!

Bottle (12 oz). 2011 vintage. From Daniel, thanks! Reddish brown with a small ring of beige foam and no lacing. Aroma is of cherries, bourbon, booze, vanilla, port notes, plums, caramel, sweetness, tobacco, wood and the list goes on. Taste is slightly to moderately sweet with cherries, port notes, bourbon, chocolate, caramel, tobacco, vanilla, figs and a nice warming finish. Full bodied. Low carbonation. Sirupy mouthfeel. Very good sipper. Extremely complex and the balance isn’t bad considering everything going on in this one.
