collinthib (8) - Salem, Oregon, USA - NOV 2, 2013 does not count
Amazing beer. Aroma has notes of chocolate, petey smoke, and leather. This is the closest scotch smell I have ever smelled from a beer. Palate is sweet but not cloyingly so; smokey flavor really comes through. Smooth and just a finish of bitterness makes this beer amazing.

Rustyham (1717) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - SEP 9, 2013
Very sweet, warm, bourbony. It has a great, deep old a little flavor that is very complex and very familiar at the same time.

alexsdad06 (5338) - Ohio, USA - AUG 31, 2013
2011 12 oz. bottle. Pours a dark copper/brown color with a medium sized beige head after an aggressive pour. The aroma and flavor had big sweet malts, caramel, toffee, dark ripe fruits and raisins, wood, mild bourbon notes, vanilla and brown sugar. Smooth drinking and although sweet, not cloying. Solid.

bytemesis (3020) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - AUG 18, 2013
Bottle, 2011 - thanks Alen! Pours dark opaque brown with a small tan head that dissipates quickly with some lacing. Aroma is full and rich with roasted malts, raisin, chocolate, molasses, and bourbon, of course. Flavor is the same, medium sweet with roasted malts, raisins, a bit of chocolate and a wonderfully strong, but not overpowering, bourbon presence. Rich and creamy in the mouth, a bit hot, but perhaps not as much as Adam itself. Wow is this beer good!

August 9, 2013 - 2011 bottle purchased at the brewery. Dark brown pour with limited head. Aroma and taste were bourbon, chocolate, wood, smoke and vanilla. Just an amazing beer that is one of the best I have tried to this point.
