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"

Poured from 12oz bottle (2011 vintage) into snifter glass. Pours dark brown with a small light brown head that lasted decently throughout. The aroma holds coconut/vanilla from the wood, dark chocolate, dark bread, earth, tobacco, wet leather, soy, figs, prunes, raisins, and a touch of old hops reminiscent of the regular Adam old ale. Robust and oxidized nose. The flavor is medium sweet, medium bitter and light acidic with notes of vanilla, coconut, wood, caramel, dark sugar, dark fruits, leather, tobacco, earth, dark bread, chocolate, earthy licorice, light citrus and a touch of soy. The mouthfeel is rounding, soft and sticky with a light carbonation. Vinous and complex finish. Medium-bodied. Overall, a very nice old ale. Didn’t blow anything out of the water for me. I will not go at great length for this brew anymore and stick with the more accessible Adam which is one of my favorites for the style.

12oz bottle. Pours a dark brown/red color with a small head that falls fast and doesn't leave much lacing on the glass. The aroma is very alcoholic - bourbon, oak, coffee-roast malts, some dark fruit. The flavor has a lot of caramel and bourbon/oak flavors, but even more alcohol flavor. Fairly sweet finish. Also has some earthy bitterness that sticks around on the tongue. The mouthfeel is moderate, but the alcohol and bitterness stick around on the palate making this one a little less drinkable for me. Very interesting beer.

The last one I tried had carbonation issues, so tough to give a true rating.

12 oz bottle generously shared by mrfootstones. Thanks Brian. Pours a cola brown with a small white head that settles to a ring and leaves some light lacing on the glass. The aroma is lots of bourbon, oak, and caramel. There is also some smoke, a bit of tobacco, and quite a bit of alcohol. The taste is very sweet with lots of bourbon, some plum, and a hint of cherry. There is also lots of caramel, some vanilla, a bit of leather, and a light smokiness. The finish is quite boozy with lingering sweetness. Full Body. Low carbonation. Enjoyable, but I could not drink much of this.
