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 (2079) - 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

LCI. Van de tap @ACBF2017. Mooie old ale, wat zurig door de kersen en houttonen van de BA. Had er eerlijk gezegd wat meer van verwacht, maar nog steeds heel lekker.

@ ACBF 2017. Mooi donker bier met crmekleurig schuimkraagje die wegebt tot fijn laagje. Mooi vol aroma en smaken van donker (overrijp) fruit, kersen, rozijnen, rum, sherry.. Likeurachtig, silky in de mond met mooie warmende afdronk met een houtige toets. Zeer goed in balans. Prachtig genietersbier.

Alengrin (5006) - BELGIUM - MAR 6, 2017
At ACBF, poured by mr. Sprints himself. I have been reading about this for a while so curious to taste it. Pale beige, bubbly, loose, quickly disappearing head, warm dark bronze colour with mahogany brown hue, hazy. Strong aroma of sour cherries, wet oak wood, sweet sherry, dried plum, wet leather, vanilla, horse steak. Sweet candied fig in the mouth paired with sour blackberry and indeed sour cherry tartness contrasting with the sweetness, dried meat-like umami accent, bit leathery, slick and rather viscous, full mouthfeel, thick toffeeish malt body with the meaty umami, sour fruits and residual sweetness all playing on top of it, quite a lot of brown rum-like alcohol in the end, long and dry but nothing too astringent, lingering fruit tartness and dryness of woody tannins. Impressive top-fermented fruit beer of great complexity.

Zlotta (2772) - Hagen, GERMANY - MAR 4, 2017
Sampled from tap at ACBF 2017. Dark reddish brown to black with a beige layer. Sweetish-malty, slightly roasty aroma of dark chocolate, coffee, molasses and toasted nuts. Very sweet, malty and slightly roasty taste of dark chocolate, coffee, licorice, oak and some red fruits, followed by a medium long, moderately roasty-bitter, a little dry and moderately warming finish. Medium to full body, creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Very good, but I hoped for a bit more to be honest.

Bottle kindly shared by pilsnertest. Pours dark reddish brown. Completely still. Big aroma and taste with sugar syrup, dark fruit, prunes, toasted oak, cherry. Oily texture with a slight hit of booze. Magnificent.

bulldogops (2490) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 19, 2017
Rating #2330 - 2016.02.11- Enjoyed on @drinkthispod #yeg. Bottle obtained at brewery. Pours an opaque dark reddish brown color, almost black. Very little white head that bubbles away quickly. Nice aroma of cherry, bourbon, alcohol, roasted earthy malt. Smooth mouthfeel, taste of oaky cherry chocolate, medium alcohol warmth on the palate, full bodied, lingering sweetness. Love the colour and depth that these Bourbon barrels and cherries have brought to this brew. Exquisite.
