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.

Wow - treat had at the 2004 Fall Beerfest in Toronto. Cheers to wholfs and qdog I believe? - hope I got that right. So then, lots of varied aromas come through: maple, vanilla, soy, malt, alcohol, dark fruits. Flavours of toasty molasses and plummy port fruits and a nice woodiness. Long sour bitter finish, but in a good way. Nicely done.

dark brown, no head. smells like adam with dates and smoke and spice but has a very nice woody, toasty and toffee-ish note too. the palate is thick and chewy, yet smooth. the flavour is deep and complex with smoke, choclate spice, dried fruit and the effect of the barrel. a very well done barrel aged beer.

Bottle at Fall Beerfest In Toronto 2004. Deep brown in colour. Aroma was very malt, some port and alcohol. Flavour was plummy, some raisins, alcohol, some borrbon and port. Spicy body, medium-low carbonation. Finishes with a long alcohol warmth. Thanks for bringing this wohlfs.

PWalk (337) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 2, 2005
Nearly jet black in the glass with zero carbonation. Smelled sweet and smokey. Tons of flavor going on. raisin, bourbon, and molasses. Great little alcohol burn in the end. Iíd love to work on a bottle of this over a couple days in midwinter. THX to hopdog for sharing.

MullMan (1099) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 1, 2005
blackish brown color but slightly golden brown at the edges. only a few dark bubbles at the ring of the glass. nose is oak, vanilla, sherry, and brown butter. mouthfeel is slick and buttery too. taste is buttery and bourbon like. light alcohol heat. some sweetness like the bourbon and butter were sauteed in brown sugar. thanks hopdog!

JFGrind (1842) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 28, 2005
Poured flat, and was dark as motor oil. Heavy duty oak flavor followed by licorice fruit and smoke flavors. Interesting beer to sample.

Probiere (992) - Iowa, USA - FEB 28, 2005
Dark like molasses in a glass. No head. Aroma licorice, white pepper, brown sugar. Mouthfeel oily and almost flat. Taste molasses, spice, alcohol, licorice. Nowhere near as complex as the regular Adam, which Iíll take this over this any day of the week. Thanks to....who brought this, anyway??

Poured a dark brown with no head. Aromas and tastes of dark fruits, vanilla, bourbon, brown sugar and molasses. A lot going there. Alcohol kick in the end. Definitely a beer to be sipping on a cold winter night. The only bad thing I have to say about this one, is it comes in 1.5 liter bottles.

I love Adam, I love Fred, I love everything Iíve ever had from Hair of the Dog, but this is pretty nasty stuff. Dark brown, absolutely no carbonation at all, and a viscous, winy character. Maybe Iím just not cut out for these wood-aged beers (Iím not a big fan of Fish Taleís Leviathan or Poseidon either), but this doesnít really do it for me. I canít taste any of what I love in Adam in here, itís all overpowered by alcohol and "woodiness". Just not for me.
