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.

2011 Bottle. Pours a dark brown color with reddish notes and a beige head. Aroma is of bourbon and cherries, I get vanilla, oak, leather, dark fruits of raisins and dates, tobacco, sugary notes, almost toasty notes and molasses. The flavor follows the nose, of cherry and bourbon, wood and vanilla, along with the molasses, dark fruits, leather funk, tobacco, toasty notes, darker sugar and tobacco. Body is lighter side of medium and almost dead flat with an oily mouth feel. Overall a really nice version of Adam, but not as good as the Bourbon version, and I would have liked more carbonation.

Dark ale with no carbonation. Boozy, cherry smell and a long finish. Smells great and tastes even better.

Dark brown and flat. Aroma is exceptionally boozy, dry and woody. The cherry element adds sweetness and dryness.
