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.

Had this at BCTC after the fest, back at the campsite. Monster bottle from ‘03, supplied by EDA. Pours a murky brown with no head, still. Huge oxidized plum and caramel, raisins and plums. Sweet smelling, full of vanilla and oak. Still, no carbonation, sweet caramel, toffee and candy. Chocolates and prune. Delicious. Delicate and subtle, complex long finish.

UPDATED: NOV 17, 2011 Vintage 2000 (or 2001 can’t remember) Magnum that was shared at the opening of the new Hair of the Dog Tasting Room!... Poured opaque, brown with no head, except for a little bit of bubbles at the surface. Aroma had lots of bourbon, and brandy-like booze, heavy with alcohol and even notes of cocoa, and buttery malts. Not as smokey as regular Adam, it seemed to have lost that in either the barrel aging or the bottle aging. Little carbonation, hot with whiskey flavors, and notes of prunes, currants, savory meats, and a little bit of roast. Very fortified, like a fine port wine.

KAME (160) - California, USA - JUN 7, 2010
On tap at the STUFFED SANDWICH. Being that I’ve been bored with most "imperial" beers lately, I found AFTW to be quite a nice treat. The complexity of Adam was definitely subdued as a result of the barrel aging, but the vanilla/caramel/oaky sweetness that replaced it was quite tasty. I still prefer regular old Adam, but I really enjoyed the opportunity to give AFTW a try. I especially liked the alcohol presence, not hot what soever but warming enough to know that it was a big beer. Labeled as 12% ABV at SS.

brokensail (14042) - San Leandro, California, USA - JUN 4, 2010
A: The pour is a slightly muddled dark brown color with a few highlights of red. S: The richness of the bourbon, vanilla, and chocolate is really impressive. A slight bit of alcohol heat, but it is quite smooth and pleasant. T: A nice sweetness in the form of vanilla and chocolate. The wood is quite prominent and provides some nice tannins and even more vanilla. A bit of bourbon and warmth on the finish. M: The body is full with a low, smooth carbonation and a nice warming feel on the tongue and all the way down. D: A fairly high ABV beer, but very smooth and easy to drink. The bourbon presence might be a bit for some, but I found this on quite enjoyable.

Sampled at DLD2010, thank you to the awesome dude who put this on the table. Pours dark mahogany/ brown. Aroma is earthy, woody, nice bourbon notes. Some fruit and chocolate. Raisin, plum, some notes of oxidation. Flavor is dark fruits, leather, bourbon, oak, earth. Really tasty and smooth. Slick mouthfeel. An absolute treat to try.

Dickinsonbeer (5075) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 11, 2010
Notes from Cleveland Tasting 2008. Pours a deep mahogany red- near brown with very little carbonation- just a film of a head. Aroma is big sweet caramelized malts, honey, molasses, maple syrup, brown sugar, thick sweet dried candied fruits- raisin, and plum- oxidation is pretty big, but still very nice- adds a sherry-like complexity- has the big malt and toastiness of Dave with a nice lingering woody earthiness as well. Flavor is mostly sweet big malts, hints of bourbon, caramelized oak, toffee, light vanilla, brown sugar, light soy, medium sherry, more fruit and earthy tannic hops and old complex malt- very complex, yet it all fits together very nicely. Awesome stuff!

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 27, 2009
12oz bottle from dennis. thanks for the opportunity to try this rare treat. a well deserved treat after a long work week... opened without any hiss to be heard.....pours a dark and murky raisin brown with no head whatsoever.... nose made up of sweet/rich caramel, toffee, and assertive barrel notes... flavors of dark and ripe fruits, brown sugar, and caramel malt that intermingle with the wood and barrel flavors. just enough of a bite in the finish to give it some life. alcohol is noticeable and warming. finishes with a faint touch of tartness. lack of carbonation hurts it somewhat but still

troopie (2291) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - MAY 30, 2009
Stray bottle. Poured Zambesi mud brown with thick lasting beige head. Powerful aroma of oak, malt and caramel. Full malty flavour, with caramel, bourbon and oak notes. Lasting full malt finish, smoke, and caramel. Like regular Adam, only better

Huge thanks to Chris for bringing this 12oz bottle to the Sea Of Floydster tasting! Caramel and liqueur in the smell - quite similar profile to Dave. Almost flat, but nice and smooth on the tongue. Caramel, molasses and brown sugar play against some vinous bourbon characteristics. Very well done and very tasty.
