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.

ineedbeer (1916) - Oakland, California, USA - FEB 13, 2013
2012 Vintage Aroma is full of rich malts with a pleasing cherry note throughout. Goose Island should take note - this cherry isn't at all medicinal. Lots of chocolate and light oak notes compliment. A light toast character with some pleasing oxidation notes. More oak as it warms. Pours a dark brown that isn't quite black with a thin tan head that quickly recedes to the edges. No lacing with medium sized legs. Flavor is very sweet with lots of chocolate and cherry. It tastes like melted chocolate covered tart cherries. Mid palate there is a nice roast character and some light oak notes. Light bitterness. The same oxidation that helps the aroma adds a slightly off putting finish. Light to moderate astringency. Some alcohol in the finish as it warns. Mouthfeel is full bodied with low but present carbonation. Astringency is moderate as is alcohol warmth. Overall this aroma is great but the finishing note in the flavor leaves a lot to be desired. I think I prefer these beers with a bit of age. The oak mellows as does the finishing note. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fkoolen (1043) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 5, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2016 Bottle at home, 2015 ed. Very dark red wine colour, no head. Amazingly complex cherry, red vinous, oaky vanilla, bourbon-y, lightly acidic nose. Taste has some additional roasted malty chocolate, coffee, butterscotch, nuts and dried fruits, warmingly boozy but high abv is well hidden. Brilliantly balanced. Red fruity, body lingering finish. Absent carbonation, big body, velvety (!) soft mouthfeel, oily texture.

12oz bottle 2014 release thanks to Prufrockstar- nose is like regular version but a little cough syrup or brandy. Flat. A little nutty probably from the ageing. Earthy.

Christian (12986) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 20, 2016
Bottle at home. Near black with a tiny off-white head. Strong, complex aroma, with cherries, roasted notes of chocolate and licorice, vanilla and caramel, and all held together by vineous alcohol character of bourbon and dessert wine. Sweet and complex flavour of dessert wine, cherry and aged barleyw wine. As good as any Adam from the wood. World class.

ciocanelu (1588) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - MAR 18, 2016
Murky brown color with a reddish hue, no head. Aroma is really intense with dark fruits, caramel, brandy, toffee and fudge. Taste follows with cherries, plums, figs, toffee and oak. Heavy, flat body. Really complex overall, lots of dark fruits and toffee. A bit of carbonation would do wonders though.
