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. Dark brown head (fast gone) on what looks an almost black beer. The aroma of a moist cellar, wooden casks, red fruit/red wine/porto and alcohol. Taste is rather sweet and reminds of porto, red fruit, wood, warming alcohol, resins and a little fruity wine-like sourness. To me this is more wine than beer. But nice anyway ....

2014 bottle at. HotD. Dark brown pour with deep reddish highlights. Minor head. Rich bourbon and wood aroma. Dark mildly tart cherry in here. Holy crap, this is super rich and a monster. Unreal. So good!

mariuspoenari (42) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 10, 2015
Dark brown pour, almost black. No head or lacing or any type of carbonation visible, no matter how vigorously you pour. The smell is complex and beautiful: roasted walnuts, chestnuts, tons of cocoa, macerated cherries, maple syrup, sherry, bourbon barrel, vanilla and oak, figs. The taste - amazing. A boatload of cherries up front, figs, walnuts, sherry and vanilla oak, bourbon, and underneath it all a nice, hot spiciness. Smooth and creamy texture, but not the kind that chokes, with a warm and cherry-intense aftertaste.

Vaiz (4052) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 21, 2015
Bottle at de Molen. Very dark brown pour, thin tan head. Aroma is full of vanilla, bourbon, oak, leather, chocolate, licorice, caramel, some alcohol and some ripe fruits. Flavor is very smooth, creamy vanilla, almost no carbonation, some sweet fruits and a slight warming finish. Huge body. Lovely balance, great brew.

Hoprider (236) - DENMARK - OCT 3, 2015
Pours dark dense ruby/dark brown with no head. A few small bubbles. Nose: So much candy.. English licorice, filled chocolate and cherry bonbons, big wood influence and a slight boozy quality on the nose - but it works well. Taste: intense! Cherry triffle, cherry vinegar, soy? Chocolate, almond liquor And again a good wood influence- big powerfull flavour here. The mouthfeel is oily, aftertaste mostly on almondy and chocolate and cherry. Finish is long and lingering. Big thanks to motherbrother for splitting this in half with me.

Fritz123 (1477) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - SEP 13, 2015
What a treat! Pours a dark reddish brown in a snifter...light head and no lace. The aroma was serious cherry cordial, chocolate, deep dark fruits, barrel. Taste is chocolate cherry cordial, caramel, red wine, oak barrel, and a complex malt base. Full body, lighter carb. Very complex and deep in flavors.

The bottle I had was developing a rather unpleasant acetic acid character that did not make drinking it enjoyable at all, sadly.

Long time want here. 2014 vintage. Very dark brown with red edges, slick and viscous looking. Nose is dark chocolate cherries, rotting cherries. Syrupy, thick mouthfeel. Rich dark chocolate, sweet cherries, light sour streak but slow sipping desert beer all the way. Coats the tongue and lingers with cherry cordial flavors. Nice, unique stuff.
