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.

Sarlacc83 (896) - Oregon, USA - NOV 11, 2012
12oz bottle. 2012 vintage. A: Creamy cherry tinted head that eventually recedes. Blackened body. Great legs. N: Cherry, vanilla, honey, bourbon, oak, coconut, leather and smoke. Good grief. Smells like adam from the wood. T: Deep, rich and full. Cherry, oak, alcohol, smoke, baker’s chocolate. Honey and vanilla. Lots of bourbon tones. Leather and earth. Rich and complex. The cherry is an overtone here rather than the star and it works. M: Heavy with pronounced alcohol. Normal for Adam. O: Well this is a pleasant surprise. More like Adam from the Wood with cherry than Cherry Adam, and as such, the best of the 4 vintages.

edhutson79 (20) - Alabama, USA - NOV 22, 2014
Very dark and almost imperial stout like in appearance topped by a small but lasting frothy head and spotty lace. oily legs as well. The nose detects massive bourbon and sherry cask conditioning, vanilla, oak, grapes, dates, heavy ripened cherries, bittersweet bakers chocolate, smoke and peat, leather and tar, EXTREMELY over-the-top and wonderful.

kbudd19 (670) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 22, 2014
Bottle vintage 2009. Oily Black pour with no head to speak of. Aroma is vanilla, light smoke, ash, brown sugar, and tart fruit, crazy good aroma. Taste is light tartness, vanilla, ash, butterscotch, light tartness on the aftertaste, oily mouthfeel no carbonation. Pretty darn tasty not much cherry flavour left but this is a pretty old bottle, not really any carbonation but still delicious.

ericdevin (872) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - NOV 19, 2014
Bottle from 16 Tons Taphouse, Eugene. 2012 vintage. Pours a very dark reddish brown, little bit of tan head. Nose stellar, lots of cherries, dried fruit, booze. Grapes, funk, tannins. Body full and rich, more cherries, with some lingering notes, much more bite than one might expect from 10%. Fucking stellar.

maxwelldeux (3755) - Everett, Washington, USA - OCT 27, 2014
Bottle at HotD, thanks to a new friend at the bar. Pours a dark brown color with no head on there. Nose has some dark fruit elements to it and seems slightly sour, with a lot of the characteristics of barley wines. Taste is slightly sweet with a bit of a sour finish, and is super smooth. As someone who detests cherry, I was very pleasantly surprised at this, and found it not to be particularly cherry.

Med en nyans av koppar i denna svartbuna bärs.Bourbonton är det första man tänker på. Anmärkningsvärt flat. Härlig bourbon. Känner inget av körsbären. Väldigt välbalanserad och trevlig.

Bottle thanks to tom10101, many many thanks Tom! Pours a dark reddish brown with no head and thus no lacing. Nose is of bourbon, coconut and caramel. Really rich. Taste is of chocolate, cherry, caramel and bourbon. Body is really just perfect here, full, rich, liquorous, dense... the list goes on. It is never hot, in fact I felt almost no alcohol whatsoever. Yum!

czar (4604) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 17, 2014
bottle shared by mathieuc, many thanks bro! pours hazy dark brown-red, little to no head, no lacing. luscious chocolate, cherry meat, but also red grapes - red wine character too, balsamic reduction - also w/o its vinegar, maple syrup, beef stock concentrate, sweetness - burnt caramel and balsamic sugars, pepper. low carbonation if not still, medium to full body - oily and sticky, lightly tannic and fruity-balsamic-spicy finish. interesting but not so much my thing.

Bottle ’14 thanks Burg for this lovely bottle - Pours dark brown, little carbonation but thick and luscious. Smells woody, cherries, dates, and figs. The taste is malty sweet with cherries and dates. It’s really smooth even with all of the alcohol in here. I’m really digging this beer or I’m already drunk. Either way, life is good!
