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.

gEUS (1637) - Linden, - OCT 2, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2014 330 ml bottle - kindly shared by BelgBeerGeek at the epic beer tasting - and this beer is epic! Pours dark brown with red notes; no carbonation. Nose of cherries and nuts with a full sour & sweet mouthfeel perfect in balance. Taste of raspberries and madeira kind of palate. This is a real treat. ---- Sampled 2nd time on 30/08/2014, shared by Urbain Coutteau. This time, balance was wayyy gone. Felt like a watery stout with rumtopf cherry alcohol in it, plus seems too sticky & sweet to be genuine cherries (but I can be wrong).

Bottle share. Dark, flat pour. Big boozy aroma. Taste comes in big, cherries, malty, sweet. Doesnt taste boozy, but sneaks up on you. Near perfect.

355ml bottle - Overpriced Beer Tasting 2016 - thanks rask0lnikov!
Smells of whatever spirit was in the barrel, some barrel. Nice raisiny taste, but outragiously sweet. Woody, but so damn sweet. Doesnt hide the alcohol, it smothers the alcohol. Sweet boozy mess.
