After having a conversation on here with Barrythebear, I was "assigned" drinking a bottle of Adam and Adam from the Wood and review both. I decided to drink them side by side for the sake of Science. Hooray Science!
Poured into a Hunahpu's snifter. 2011 bottle.
Appearance: Pours dark brownish black with a finger of mocha/tan head that settled down to a ring around the edge of the glass, almost stout like.
Smell: Adam turned up to 12! The dark fruits really come to the front of this one, especially the aroma of figs and raisins. The bourbon isn't as heavy as I thought it would have been, but the alcohol sting is heavier than the regular Adam, which isn't surprising. I prefer the heavier aroma of the dark fruits in this to the regular Adam.
Taste: Bourbon raisin right off the bat. Vanilla, plum chocolate, brown sugar mixed all together into a sweet nectar (of the gods).
Mouthfeel: Full bodied and ridiculously smooth. Almost like sipping on a fine cognac or scotch.
Overall: I really liked this beer, and while it's a 4.5 on my rating, I'd say it's closer to a 4.75. What a great treat from Barry, which was definitely appreciated in December 2011 when he gave me the bottle, but even more tonight when I drank it. ISO more bottles!
