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"

Adam From the Wood 2011

L: Dark hazy brown, pretty much black. No head, no lacing. Not your typical looking beer, but it is beautiful in it's own way.

A: Big bourbon and vanilla notes backed up by chocolate/caramel malt, dark fruit, and smoke. Rich and perfectly balanced between heavy bourbon notes and rich malt.

T/M: Opens up with big sweet caramel notes, moves into bourbon, chocolate, vanilla, and toasted coconut. The mouthfeel is huge and vicious, and the flavors linger through for ages.

Overall, this is just about the most magnificent beer I have ever tasted. Very unique, and crazy delicious. Beyond World-class.

No fizz at the pop of the cap, must be a 2014. Hesitant about that fact, but fuck me this is amazing.

Aroma of leather, booze, cigar tobacco, damp aged oak, bourbon barrel char and vanilla. Big dark fruit presence with some more tart, sweeter fruits. The taste follows with a big damp woody, oaky booze with a lot of fruit - notable tartness on the finish.

This is outstanding, very glad demand was down and I got several bottles. This will be fun to revisit the next few years.
