COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cherry Adam from the Wood is aged with locally grown black cherries in oak casks for 15 months. The fruit lends a sweet tartness to the finish, melding with the wood and adding a new dimension of complexity. The 2008 bottling celebrates 15 years of business for me and was aged in Bourbon and Sherry barrels. The 2009 bottling was aged exclusively in Elijah Craig Bourbon barrels.

Beaver (1283) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 28, 2014
12 oz bottle, dated 2014. Pours dark brown with no real carbonation.

The aroma is bourbon chocolate cherries.

The flavor is sweet malts, strong bourbon alcohol, dark fruits, roast chocolate and slightly tart cherry. There’s a little harsh alcohol in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with no carbonation.

Overall, a nice decedent beer.

Salmoniform (565) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - MAY 27, 2014
Poured 2014 from bottle to glass. Dark hue with no head. Aroma is cherries, wood, vanilla, tobacco, smoke, chocolate, toffee, prunes. Taste is sweet throughout with an astringent following and slight ethanol finish. Mouthfeel is great with a moderate full body but no carbonation yet. Overall this is one of the best HOTD brews that I’ve had. It will be epic in a few years when finally carbonated. The 13% is well integrated!

KansaiBeerLvrs (1950) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 29, 2014
At the Hair of the Dog mini-tasting. 2009. Served in a snifter. A 6 year old beer! Somewhat more of a nutty muddy brown pour compared to the regular Adam. A stronger barrel aroma as well. More heat, the taste is syrupy sweet cherry, sherry, maple syrup & oak. Tasty.

DTM (798) - Winters, California, USA - APR 19, 2014
Bottle shared with Timfoolery in line at The Rare Barrel. Very nice mix of sweet malty goodness with cherry flavor. Sometimes these types of beers can be a mess. Need more!!!

AirForceHops (3114) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 29, 2014
12 oz. bottle. 2012 vintage. Major dark brown with a thin ring of head around the snifter. Aroma smells like dirty gym socks that sat in a locker for 5 weeks. With large amounts of oak.

Thankfully the flavor is much better. Dark oak and bourbon traces with hints of cherries. Bourbon is very subtle. Burnt sugar and dark malts. Some vinous notes. Light warming alcohol sensation after after the sip. Body is medium leaning on full.

Another impressive brew from this brewery. The over 13% ABV is hidden nicely. Just a ton of oak through out this brew. Nice

Flavor has a ton of vanilla - oak, cherries, vanilla extract, cream. Finish is slightly sour/acidic with a touch of warming alcohol.
