Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: freed on 01-04-2005

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.

Vintage 2014.

Flat and mahogany brown.

The nose is ensorcelling, deep, and bizarre. It smells like...Arby's? Meat and cheese and horseradish. Also booze though. Scotch.

It's a delicious beer, if thin and almost perfectly flat. Fruity notes, some chocolate and toffee.

Great, but normal Adam is just so good.

It says it's flat and it is. However, that has no impact on flavor and is damn delicious.

Just didn't seem to have a great flavor. Nothing stood out for me.

Lack of carb in this really killed it for me.

I prefer the base Adam. The barrel just added basic wood notes and detracted from the overall taste.
