COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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!

Poured flat, and was dark as motor oil. Heavy duty oak flavor followed by licorice fruit and smoke flavors. Interesting beer to sample.

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 I’ll 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 I’ve 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 I’m just not cut out for these wood-aged beers (I’m not a big fan of Fish Tale’s Leviathan or Poseidon either), but this doesn’t really do it for me. I can’t taste any of what I love in Adam in here, it’s all overpowered by alcohol and "woodiness". Just not for me.

Thanks, or should it be curses go out to walt for bringing 1.5 liters of this to the tasting. my notes start to get a bit hard to read starting with this one. pours a lighter black than the average black with almost no head except a few bubbles. aroma is sweet raisins and plums with a noticeable "woodyness" and some licorice. taste is yep, wood aged with a sweet alcoholic mouthfeel. chocolate flavors come through strong. a very subdued mixture that is similar to soy sauce is in there. oily mouthfeel. cloying and alcohol sweetness remain, but it is very warming.

(Bottle) Pours a dark brown body with a spare tan head. Aroma of "strong" wood, bread, licorice, soy, grapes, and toffee. Flavor of oak, malt, chocolate, and spices. Oily, somewhat thin mouthfeel. Much different from regular Adam. Enjoyable!

3L bottle. Wow. Where to start? It is just a little too much-a little too much tannin, a little too much wood, a little too much time in the barrel, a little too flat. It is definitely a good beer, but I think it was aged just a little too long. Maybe if this were BA’ged for 2 years, it would be a little more friendly. However, having said all that, this is still an excellent, excellent beer. Thanks to Kawa for sharing this!

Side by side with a regular Adam, this is totally not the same beer. Flat, no head; dark, hazy mahogany color. Huge aroma, with notes of whisky, toffee, raisins, grapes, tootsie roll candies, chocolate pudding, and wood. The flavor suggests chocolate, port, soy sauce, salt, and notes of a sweet/sour pork dish at a run-of-the-mill Chinese restaurant. Smooth, but not so silky; oily. Higher drinkability than the regular Adam, for sure, and I think I like the flavors here as well. I didn’t think it went too heavy on the wood, though that was the opinion of some of the Texas raters I was drinking with. Big 3L bottle....thanks Kawa!
