We dont have to take our clothes off, to drink some cherry adam.

Pours a black cherry with stems like Jackie Brown.

Smells like Kool Aids Cherry Cousin, Cherry Aid. Very good.

One of the best cherry old ales on the market. Cherry, Sherry, heat, warmth, sweetness, Walter Payton. Fantastic.

Excellent beer, get this mofo if yo cando.

2011 release at the tasting room on 3/5. Served in a 3-oz HOTD tasting glass. Tasting notes from memory. Unfortunately I had a couple pints at lunch before stopping at HOTD, as I really wish I could have enjoyed a full 12oz pour.

A: Dark brown with obvious red or dark amber notes along the edges. Poured with almost no carbonation. Just a thin ring around the edge that disappeared almost immediately.

S: Bourbon hit first followed by some sweet, fruity aromas. And then more bourbon. The smell is intense.

T: Just like the smell, the bourbon floods the senses on first taste. And then again on second taste. Once past the bourbon (and the beer warms a bit), the cherry flavors start to become more apparant mid to late in the taste. Other barrel notes (vanilla) are there, but only in the distance. This one needs some age.

M: Very thick and oily, almost to the point of being cloying. Little to no carbonation. I personally thing some minimal carbonation would have really helped here as well as with bottle aging.

D: Excellent. Smooth and rich. The bourbon is a little overpowering right now, but this should evolve into a wonderful beer over the next one to five years.

Serving type: on-tap
