ChrisOs Marvellous Pre GBBF Mega Tasting. Very dark brown beer, Short pale tan head. Nice nose of bourbon and wood. Smooth palate, a little soft. Mild fine carbonation. Lovely smooth bourbon with mild vanilla and some wood. Semi dry finish. A big unapologetic bourbon barrel beer but so smooth and drinkable.

Leighton (22555) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2012
Bottle at Chriso’s 2012 Pre-GBBF Shindig, London. Awesome stuff. Big character, lots of raisins, alcohol-soaked dark fruits, brownies, dark sugars, earth. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Moderate blackcurrant tang, some dry chocolate. Excellent. Some woody dryness and mild spice, too. One of the top beers of the tasting.

mcberko (19190) - 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 doesn’t ruin the complexity. Delicious, though I much prefer Cherry Adam from the Wood (2011) and even regular Adam.
