1770th Review on BA
Bottle to HOTD Tulip
12 oz 2011 Vintage
App- A purple/red creamy looking pour. Very little in terms of bubbles/head or lacing. Just flat. So Adam is a different animal in terms of bubbles. I’ve noticed the base beer pours great but with barrel treatments not so much.
Smell- So with only being aged on oak, I wasn’t expecting the sweetness to it, but this had a bit of dark fruits and licorice behind it. The base of Adam came in a little bit and then evolved with a bit of the oak. A bit rustic and damp smelling IMO.
Taste- This was for me the best of the 3 Adam’s I have had. The Cherry Adam is nice, but a bit tangled in terms of flavor. The AFTW is a great beer that plays off the strength of Adam and amps it up a bit with a fine oak flavor and a bit more wispy booze.
Mouth- Medium bodied with a low carb level. Creamy dessert beer is the best way to say it.
Drink- I pretty much made a trip to PDX for this and I am glad I did.
