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.

Dark beer out of the bottle with some mahogany hints when held against the light. It poured out of the bottle almost still. Bourbon and cherry nose. Dark woody barrel flavors with lots of dark cherry fruitiness. This evokes a fruitcake and dried fruit, but it just wasnít what I had hoped for in this beer.

Poured from a 330cc bottle. Shared with JB & ML. Dark mahogany-red with a red-brown head. Aroma is dark cherry, bourbon, vanilla, and dark fruit. Flavour is chocolate, cherry, oak, sweet malt, tart fruit, and hops. Medium to full body. Delicious!

neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 11, 2014
12 oz bottle courtesy of JB, served in a stem glass. Pours deep mahogany with a tiny rim of bubbles. The nose has big baked cherry, molasses and oak, along with vanilla, port and dark fruit. The flavour is moderately sweet with big cherry and molasses notes. These are paired with toffee, earth, pepper and soft hops. The finish is long and malty with molasses, huge cherries and delicate hops. On the palate it is medium-full in body with a syrupy texture and very soft carbonation. Overall, an amazing brew. Truly amazing. He cherries put it over the top. Wow. 2014-09-10

Lukaduke (2549) - Portland, Maine, USA - SEP 8, 2014
Pours a deep rusty umber color with a finger of khaki foam. The nose is layered with burnt sugar, bourbon heat, tart cherry and cocoa dusted leather. the palate follows with lots of complexity that ebbs and flows from amazing to slightly strange. But overall the big mouthcoating flavors won me over. Chocolate covered cherries, burnt sugar, leather, slight vinous acidity and lots of sweet earthy undertones that are heavily influenced by a round nutty bourbon presence.

Leveejr (109) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 8, 2014
Pours a dark brown with no head. Smells amazing. Brandy, cherry, booze, malt, ever so slight oxidation. Taste is also outstanding. Cherry, raisiny booze and sweetness, brandy. Zero carbonation gives it an odd mouthfeel but this is one hell of a beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Heavy sipper, the nose is itís own environment, really, deep, layered, drunk from just sniffing it, not cloying in the taste, just too different from any beer, bourbon is present, but as an undertone, smooth palate, Now that Iím getting into it, black cherries, Adamís in there, yes, I can taste the base beer. Lovely. Now, all it needs is a fine cigar.
