"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"

2011 bottle at the taproom.

Appearance. Pours a deep chocolate brown with almost a finger of khaki head.

Smell. Woody bourbon with a little licorice, vanilla, caramel and dark malts.

Taste. Dry old wood, bourbon, sweet dark fruits, licorice root, chocolate, and vanilla. Sweet, woody and delicious.

Mouthfeel. On the low side of full bodied, medium-low carbonation.

Overall. An awesome sweet and woody treat. Glad I ordered it and would again, even at $20!

Review from notes. 12oz bottle.

A: Pours a very dark brown, slight burgundy tint, with a small off-white head on top with minimal retention. Not much lacing to speak off.

S: Fantastic aroma, lots of bourbon and vanilla. There is a little bit of alcohol, some plums, and other dark fruit, leather, and a bit smoke.

T: Tons of dark fruit upfront, plum, fig, and cherry. Some caramel and brown sugar mixed with chocolate, oak, and caramel at the end. Fantastic.

M: Full bodied with medium carbonation. Extremely smooth and surprisingly easy drinking.

O: Fantastic. Tremendous flavor profile and incredibly drinkable, especially for 12%. Would love to sip this one over an evening.
