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.

mgermani (1002) - Vancouver, British Columbia, - AUG 14, 2012
Pours an almost black amber with no head or lace to speak of. Aroma is amazing - sweet graham cracker dominates. Cherry & vanilla also. Boozy sherry-like taste, with loads of milky chocolate. Amazing. Lingering salted caramel finish. Light carbonation. What a treat!!!

Christian (12578) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 20, 2016
Bottle at home. Near black with a tiny off-white head. Strong, complex aroma, with cherries, roasted notes of chocolate and licorice, vanilla and caramel, and all held together by vineous alcohol character of bourbon and dessert wine. Sweet and complex flavour of dessert wine, cherry and aged barleyw wine. As good as any Adam from the wood. World class.

ciocanelu (999) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - MAR 18, 2016
Murky brown color with a reddish hue, no head. Aroma is really intense with dark fruits, caramel, brandy, toffee and fudge. Taste follows with cherries, plums, figs, toffee and oak. Heavy, flat body. Really complex overall, lots of dark fruits and toffee. A bit of carbonation would do wonders though.

Bottle @ Dangerous bottleshares. Thanks to Bursprak. Pours dark brown with no head. Aroma of sweet bourbon, cherry, toffee, brown sugar and dark sweet fruits. The taste has some cherry, bourbon, chocolate, dark sweet fruits and an almost vinous touch. Very elegant beer!
