DalzAle (2029) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - DEC 23, 2011
Bottle shared by CLevar! Dark brown pour, thin ring of carbonation and an aroma of rich malt, wood and bourbon. Flavor is silky chocolate, rich caramel, more woody (and slightly hot) bourbon, and a hint of vanilla. God damn, just delicious.

Bottle from the 2011 release. Pours dark almost like oil with no head. Aroma is bourbon, brown sugar, oak, vanilla and dark fruits. Flavor is bourbon, dark chocolate, oak, vanilla and toasted malts. Medium bodied with a nice smooth finish.

mcberko (15436) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 27, 2011
2000th rating. 12 oz. bottle from the brewery (after a 2-hour lineup to obtain it and Bourbon Fred, which almost saw them run out of Adam from the Wood - we got one of the last dozen), split with Matts_Property. Pours a deep dark brown with a reddish tinge and virtually no head. Aroma of rich wood, bourbon notes, liqueur-coated dark fruits, molasses and serious heat from the booze. Flavour seems subtle at first - with the identity of the beer being revealed the more you drink - starting with wood and bourbon upfront that never ruin the complexity but are definitely quite pronounced, followed by brandy- / sherry-coated fruits, vanilla, light smokey notes and feint molasses - medium alcohol burn that doesnt ruin the complexity. Delicious, though I much prefer Cherry Adam from the Wood (2011) and even regular Adam.

jbeatty (1245) - New York, USA - DEC 20, 2011
Bottle, 2011 release. Pours deep brown, nearly black, with fleeting tan head. Beautiful aroma, chewy, with bourbon chocolate, vanilla, dark pruned fruit, cherry and light licorice. Taste begins with dark fruits, cherry prevalent, leading to rich chocolate, bourbon finish, smoke and alcohol on the breath. Creamy, thick and smooth in the mouth. A special treat to sip and enjoy.

sherm1016 (1273) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 8, 2011
12oz bottle, 2011 vintage, received in trade with black13. Thanks! Pours a deep, dark brown color with a few tan bubbles. No real head to speak of. Aroma is malty, cherry, plum, a little bourbon, a little vanilla. Just a little heavy on the palate with light, soft carbonation and an oily texture. Flavor is sweet, malty, more dark fruit, black cherry, soy sauce, port wine, oak. The finish is a little boozy with a light bourbon flavor. Positively amazing.

beernbourbon (1579) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - DEC 14, 2011
Bottle. Pour is deep dark brown with hints of dark purple and a small tan head. Aroma is loaded with fruity malt, light vanilla, a slightly-off old pumpkin note, faint alcohol, and brown sugar. Intriguing, but not overwhelming. The old pumpkin note is not great. Flavor, however, is really great. Loads of deep fruity malt and light brown sugar up front with a wonderful long and deep vanilla, bourbon, brown sugar finish with hints of fruity sweetness. Flavor is so good.

Matts_Property (837) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 30, 2011
Bottle split with mcberko. Pours solid black/brown with a tan coloured lacing. Aroma of vanilla, wood, dark fruits, liqueur, bourbon, and booze. Flavour is more muted than the aroma suggest - to begin with. Flavours (which match the aroma) continue to intensify the more you drink. A smooth mouth feel, with a light burning boozy aftertaste. Really nice.

arminjewell (9423) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - DEC 23, 2011
Pour is dark brownish black with nice tan head, bottle pour big thanks to Caleb! Aroma has notes of nice whiskey, bourbon, vanilla, slight smoke, caramel and toffee notes, rich bourbon soaked dark fruits, hints of biscuit. Taste is big sweet and subtle bourbon, vanilla and oak, that just coats your tongue, dark fruits, sweet molasses and brown sugar notes, hints of burnt sugars, touch of smoke, really nice dry, oaky, slightly bitter with a nice roasted character. Delicious!

douglas88 (8673) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 13, 2011
A huge thanks to Toby plus Jeremy and Sam for this, much appreciation! This was an elusive specter for so long, now I finally get a shot. Pours a opaque black color with purple hues and a small white head. The aroma is huge Adam notes; cherry, roast, nutty and earthy, some bourbon and heat. A initially sweet vanilla and bourbon flavor leading to a long tail of earthy sweet berries and toffee, some chocolate and roast. Very similar to the regular Adam but with more heat and a large bourbon component. A slightly thin palate and loads of warmth. Decadent, a sipper if there ever was one. Awesome.

phaleslu (9709) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 28, 2011
12 oz. bottle shared by jckp64- thanks a ton, John! 2011 release. Pours a dark, cloudy cola brown with a small khaki head. Aroma of vanilla, bourbon, charred oak, dark fruits, brown sugar, toast- the alcohol carries some heat in this. Same with the flavor, which has notes of faintly smoked and toasted malts, berry fruits, brown sugar, caramel, licorice, and oak. Medium-bodied, with a sweet, boozy, slightly smoky and spicy mouthfeel. Nice complexity. Fun to drink.
