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.

Bottle: Poured a murky dark brown color ale with zero carbonation. Aroma of tobacco, bourbon, light vanilla and molasses is quite singular. Taste is also dominated by tobacco with some molasses and bourbon notes clearly identifiable. Residual sugars are also easily identifiable with light warming alcohol. Body is quite full with almost zero carbonation. This is almost like drinking an old sherry or xeres and makes for a perfect nightcap.

The beer comes in a murky dark brown.

The aroma offers rich dark fruit soaked in a pungent sweet bourbon. An intoxicating combination of fruit, sweetness, bourbon.

The flavor follows of sweetness in the front of toffee and caramel. Then in the middle is leather and tobacco. The beer transitions to a touch of chocolate, almost towards roasted malt. Then there's more sweetness of brown sugar.

The lack of carbonationis not a big issue and I thought it would be. The complexities of the beer linger and the medium plus to full mouthfeel make up for the lack of carbonation.
