Notes/Commercial Description:
"our Adam aged in American Oak barrels. First released in 2000, and released again in November 2011 in 12oz bottles. This 12% beer has lots of the typical HOTD aromas: Caramel, brown sugar, tons of raisin and tobacco. Fig, date, and plum fruitiness in that order. This has a fairly strong earthy vinousness as well as oak vanilla. Alcohol: 12% by volume"

2011 bottle. Pours a very dark burgundy/chestnut that appears near black in the snifter, with a small creamy beige head of super tight bubbles. Nose is dates and cherries soaked in brandy, leather, smoke, a touch of brine which is just classic Adam. Very decadent alcoholic details on the nose. Mouth is very creamy, rich, alcohol heat throughout, lots of dripping dark fruits in brandy, bourbon, brine and leather in the mid palate, with a pleasantly hot finish. Takes the edgy qualities of a 2 year old Adam and just adds dimensions of complexity. I've been looking for this beer, wistfully, for years and was stoked to see it was being released again, and it doesn't disappoint at all.

A - Dark ruddy brown with unshakeable head of fine cream foam.

S - Sweet bourbon predominates.

T - Treacle and bourbon, following the nose.

M - Sticky and syrupy.

O - Good but not ridiculously so. I'd be wary of trading a king's ransom for this.

Serving type: on-tap
