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"

Oh man. My 200th review! Freakin' huge, solid, thick and tight thanks to Bdubs for sending me my personal white whale

A- Pours a deep dark brown with almost no head

S- Dark malts in there with a nice alcohol/bourbon burn in the nose

T- Holy crap... The bourbon blends amazingly with the base beer. Typical Adam malt profile but add in the smoothest bourbon ever

M- Smoooth

O- One of the best beers I've ever had. Hands down. Thank you so much Brett

Poured into a tulip, Adam from the Wood is dark and velvety with a hint of smoke, dark fruits and some roasty backbone mellowed out by its oxidative properties from being barrel-aged. The barrel-character is smooth and just plain awesome. Amazing what 3 years of barrel-aging can do to a beer!

Adam from the Wood is a world-class beer. Its one of my favorites from Hair of the Dog!
