Jedwards nails it again. Poured at cellar temp into a HF tulip. 2011 vintage.

A - Dark brown with a noticeable red hue. No head. Slight amount of bubbles around the side. Sticks well to the glass.

S - Cherries, slight oak and some caramel. Slight amount of booze come through. The aroma makes me think more of a brandy barrel than a bourbon barrel.

M - Cherries, chocolate, toffee, slight sweetness, slight heat in the far finish. The chocolate and cherries really come through strong after the first sip. Hints of raisins. The barrel is present, but I still would believe it is a brandy instead of a bourbon barrel.

M - Thickerside of medium. Feels good, but there is no carbonation. The style is the only reason I'll rate this as highly. Like Bourbon Fred, I think the lack of carbonation makes this beer better.

O - Great beer. Fantastic tasting sipper. The flavors on this are so good. Almost....almost too good.

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.
