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"

3.18/5  rDev -30.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 5 | overall: 2.5

Pours black with a persistent quarter finger of head. Aroma has tons of tobacco and some creme brulee sweetness. Flavor is absolutely overwhelming with the tobacco and smokiness, overpowering the barrel even. Oh my god there is so much tobacco and beef jerky and soy in this, what the fuck. I know those flavors are present in regular Adam, but this is cranked up to 11. Interesting, provocative, and unique for sure but I wouldn't use ''highly enjoyable'' on my list of descriptors.

The body is full and creamy and perfect, but overall this beer was a total letdown.
