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.

Bottle@Fonefan. Deep ambery brown colour, tiny brigeish brown head. Aroma is lots of wood, some berries as well as mild raisins. Flavour is leather, wood, some sour wooden notes as well as alcohol. Aftertaste is sour wood and also some slight cherries. Quite wellbalanced and nice big brew. Maybe a bit too big on the "barrelwood".

Opaque very dark brown beer. No head. Low carbonation. Slightly dry palate. Rich oak - not sweet. Dark malt with a little lactose sweetness. Repressed cherry and dark chocolate. Nice beer but not what I was expecting - hoping for something more luxuriant and oaky. 3.5

24th January 2013
THE Others tasting. Dark red brown beer, residual tan head. Palate is smooth and soft. A little wood. Sweet caramel malt and a little chocolate. The cherry is fairly well buried. Soft finish with mild hop bitterness and a warming afterglow.

Vintage 2008
Dark brown color, almost black. Mature malt and caramel aroma, oxidised, deep, characteristic of Hair of the Dog, with very light fruitness and light smoke touch too; woody. Good body strength, rich caramel and chocolate flavor, quite sweet; a light sourness (from the cherries?) is a good complement for it, and the very light vanilla too. The final is a bit more astringent, very dry in the end. Maybe not a beer for everyday, but interesting anyway, and surely complex.

Bottle, 12oz, vintage 2009. Courtesy of womencantsail. It’s a very dark brown beer, unclear, and topped by a minimal sized beige head. The aroma is quite oxidized and alcoholic, in a very pleasant way. Caramel, roasted malts, some booze, dark berries, but I cant pinpoint the cherries, and there’s also dark chocolate and a faint hint of vanilla. Really complex and delightful. The same goes for the flavor, there’s lots of deliciousness in there, with roasted malts, caramel, dark chocolate, oxidation hints, dark berries, some prunes, alcohol and vanilla. A little bitterness kicks in towards the rather warming finish. Full body, very soft carbonation. The finish just keeps on going. A really, really wonderful beer, a sipper that I could enjoy by myself for an hour or more, but it was nice sharing with geokkjer and Meilby too. Thx a lot Andrew. 130819
