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.

Year Made 2008

8/20/2009: HotD Cherry Adam from the Wood... Aroma: Super caramelized; rich, blunt cherry; hints of vanilla. Appearance: Opaque, purplish mahogany color; very thin to non-existent head. Flavor: Milk chocolate, massize amounts of caramelized malts, black cherry, creamy sherry characteristic, straight bourbon; lots of dry woodiness. Palate: Full body, chewy, mellow, and very smooth.

Picked up at the brewery 12 oz. Alan sold this to me and I was very happy. Poured dark almost black in color. Absolutely no head on this one. Very good looking beer. Nice cherry and dark fruit aroma. Nice pungent aroma. Jeez this thing is nice. Nice sweet malt at first and then you get that awesome cherry tart and then it moves on to the subtle wood aroma to finish off. Wow, this beer just has a nice succession of steps in terms of flavor. Just a real well rounded and nuanced brew. I am so happy that I was able to purchase/try this. Wish I could have aged it a bit, but oh well. Nice too carbonated, actually relatively relaxed on the carbonation. Very smooth, and a damn good brew.

12oz bottle into my DFH snifter. A - Dark brown, very light carbonation with no lacing. S - Sweet cherries, strong alcohol burn on the nose, some wood/oak, and black liquorish. T - Not as much cherry or alcohol burn as the nose. Actually, pretty well-balanced. Slight cherry flavor, nice oak, and a good amount of bourbon as well. Like I said, all very-well put together. M - Medium bodied, very slight carbonation. A nice richness that covers the palate. D - A sipper, but a good one nonetheless. I would search for this and drink again.

Bottle thanks to pantanap enjoyed late 2008. Pours a dark murky brown with a thin head. Aroma of barrel, vanilla, ambrosia, moldy cherries. Flavor is a bit of a surprise, seemingly smokey, salty, bacon, woody, chocolate, lightly tangy cherries, with a quick finish. Medium bodied, oily, light carbonation. Not quite what I was expecting, still a treat but doesn’t surpass regular Adam.

Bottle, huge thanks chris! Pours a rich ruby/brown color with a thin ktan head. Aroma is tart cherries, bourbon, oak, vanilla. Flavor is molasses, raisins, vanilla, bourbon, rum soaked cherries, oak, tobacco, alcohol, complexity off the charts. Palate is medium to full bodied, soft carbonation, finished sweet, with an acidic twang. This is great stuff! Just a hair on the boozy side for my likining, else this would have been phenominal.

Bottle: The aroma has lots of bourbon and vanilla notes, along with light smoke, wood, and faint cherry. It pours a dark brown with some red highlights when held to the light. It has a small off-white head that quickly fades to a thin sing around the edges of the glass. The flavor starts with dark fruits and chocolate. The finish has light notes of bourbon, vanilla, and cherry. Medium-full bodied with minimal carbonation and a slick mouthfeel.

Bottle courtesy of SuzyGreenberg I believe. Pours dark brown with forced bubbly tan head. Aroma of smoke, chocolate, oak, bourbon, and sweet cherries. Taste is more smoke, vanilla, bourbon, roasted malts, light on the cherries. Moderate palate, not much carbonation. Finish is alcohol, roasted malts, and slight bourbon. I had high hopes for this one, and it just didn’t deliver. Still a good beer though.
