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.

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.
