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"

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.
