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"

At HoTD, just tapped 3 year aged keg.

A: poured dark with a good finger head, nice lacing on the side.

S: great molasses dark brown sugar coming off, you then smell a great toasted wood Smokey aroma.

T: wow! This just hits all the senses. Everything is there from chocolate to malt to marshmellow then molasses. All very balanced.

M: a great medium feel. Enough to linger and enjoy the flavors as you get ready for another taste.

O: Just f*** awesome. Best beer that I have ever had hands down. Nothing else can compare. I wish I could take a keg home!
