COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Cloudy brown, with hints of purple. Lovely bouquet (Iím not the type of person who uses phrases like "Lovely bouquet") of bourbon, raisin, prune toffee and vanilla. I see my note descrbes the flavor as "very okay", but Iím pretty sure I meant to say "very oaky". In addition to the prominent oak, there substantial notes of vanilla, prune. Not bad at all.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 19, 2005
Deep, murky brown-red-black hue with a creamy, off-white head. Oak a syrup in the aroma, mostly. Wood seems to cover up much of whatís great about the original Adam. Heavily sweet, lightly acidic flavor becomes a moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter finish. Medium-full body, oily texture, soft carbonation. The bottom line is: tasty, but loses a lot of character from the original.

Holy Moly, Batman!! This was intense. Shared at the Three Floyds gathering. Poured like 10W40 with almost no head. The aroma was coffee, sweet malt caramel, bourbon, woody. Thick and syrupy smooth. Taste was sweet and potent and bourbon and malt and, of course, delicious. Didnít like Adam but this version is another story. Great stuff.

Okay, to the person that brought this bad boy to the three floyds release gathering thank you so much. I really enjoyed this. Dark in color with a thin to almost non-existant head. The nose is very syrupy with malts and sweetness roasted throughout. THe taste was very sweet with lots of bourbon. For as sweet or just tangy this beer was still very drinkable. You have gotta try this if you get a chance!

I liked Adam to begin with, but the bourbon aging transforms this beer into something truly special. Motor oil appearance, sweet coffee and caramel with strong bourbon influence. Super smooth with a dry alcohol finish.

From a shared 3L bottle at the Dark Lord release gathering. Thanks for sharing! Dark, dark brown with a light brown head. A strong vinous woody oak aroma. Flavors of dark fruit (raisins) herbs, and smoked wood. Sweet and vinous. Fuly body with a nice creamy texture. Very interesting brew. The flavor stuck with me for a while.

Hairofthedog (419) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 24, 2005
The aroma had dark fermented fruit, caramel/brown sugar, and a vinious (tannin) note. The flavor had dark fermented fruit, a brown sugar sweetness, and a slight dill and herb note. THe beer poured a deep rich brown color w/ orange highlights; no head and lacing. THe mouthfeel was medium to full bodied, and creamy. Thanks sickboy!

Poursa deep brown hue with no head at all. Aromas are oaky, medicinal, brown sugar, honey and a little whiskey.... very complex. Flavors of caramel, oak, chocolate, vanilla, and some more vanilla. Very intense and reminded me of sam adams triple bock, but without the soy sauce flavor.

Sampled with SoCal RB guys...thanks to whomever who brought this..Big bottle. I get a ton of DILL in the aroma. Smells like freshly grown dill from my parents garden. Crap. There are also malty chocolate notes in the aroma as well. Strange aroma. Hazy cola color with no head at all. Slart is slightly astringent turning very vinous, roasty, and of course oaky. Finishes chocolatey with more vinous cherry notes. Interesting...tastes better than it smells.

Pours with a dark brown body with no head or lacing. The aroma is slightly sweet, very oaky and malty with gingerbread notes and some caramel. Similar flavor iwth sour notes. Full bodied, smooth and warming.
