Took the leap of faith and ordered a $28 bottle of this as my dessert beer on my 25th birthday last year. I was just hopin that it was going to be good, I'm assuming the bottle I had was from 2009. It poured out as a dark red color, the head... Was never there. No lacing at all. The smell of the beer was very wine-like. Strong barrel aromas, blended with cherries, and booze. The taste was a little tart but had a complex flavor to it from the cherry to the wood and then some nut flavors in the far background. The mouthfeel was a little watery I thought. A little too much like a red wine. The overall thoughts I had on this beer was that I didn't think it was worth the amount I paid. Sadly I think there are much nicer beers out there other than this for much less. However I am glad that I got to try it. I don't see myself ordering this brew again.

At the time of this review, this is the #8 top Old Ale on the beeradvocate.com best of styles list. Bottle shared by Thorpe at a recent barleywine tasting. 2011 version. Thanks Mike. Served in a snifter.

Beer is dark brown with almost no head, low carbonation, no lacing.

Aroma is very sweet, mild woodiness, lots of malt, very strong, hints of alcohol.

The beer is medium in body and really sweet. The finish is a little dry where I can pick up mild tannins from the cherry wood I suppose. Overall it is a nice beer, I wish I had a regular Adam to drink next to it but alas. I remember really liking Adam and only sort of liking Cherry Adam, I would definitely have it again, but only as a side by side.

Big thanks to Mauerhan for cracking this puppy. Short notes as I was too busy enjoying many beers this particular evening.

Looks thick. Totally dark brown. Didn't get to see the head.

Smell is cherry and oak. And nothing more. Good whiff.

Taste follows. And strong too. Great. It's a little thick to enjoy everyday, but I be enjoying it today.

I'm not big on the style but this one is pretty fucking good, therefore it's probably rare and hard to get.

Good selection brother, invite me back anytime.

Overall: would love to get one for the cellar

Pours an opaque brown color with next to no carbonation, just a few bubbles.

Scent of cherries, chocolate, oak, maple, molasses and sugar. Robust and balanced, but nothing amazing.

Taste of cherry, molasses, oak, vanilla, alcohol, honey and bourbon. Complex and tasty, but fails to find perfect harmony.

Mouthfeel is medium heavy bodied and thick with a small amount of carbonation.

2009 bottle received in a trade with inflatablechair thanks Sam!

Appearance: Pours an attractive red brown but absolutely no crown, retention, or lace.

Smell: Caramel covered smoked bourbon soaked black cherries :)

Taste: Smoke, vanilla, bourbon, oak, black cherries, sweet malt, and love :)

Mouthfeel: not as thick as I was expecting which is good because the beer has predictably no carbonation. it works but SOME carbonation would have been interesting.

Drinkability: Not bad considering the abv.

This is a beer that shows lots of character and boldness.

2009 BOTTLE SAMPLED 7/30/11 (thanks to Vito at Copper Mine Pub for sharing!)

4.5 Cherry is living large with mild chocolate notes and some booze plus a whisper or roast malt.

2009 bottle

A: Deep brown, nearly black, somewhat murky. Not much head at all with just a faint ring that sits atop and no lacing is left behind.

S: Lots of wood notes that bring out some cherry, vanilla, and a hint of bourbon. Also some leather and smoky notes, and sweet toffee and caramel.

T: Nice bourbon and cherry notes to start followed by vanilla oakiness and earthy wood. A nice level of smokiness is present, but tasted somewhat muddled witht the rest of the flavors. Also plenty of caramel and leather notes as well

M: Slightly boozy and a bit syrupy, but the lack of carbonation actually adds to the overall feel.

D: I enjoyed one bottle in two sittings and would have had trouble doing it another way.

Got as an extra from TATTORSO...thanks man!! Poured from a 12oz bottle into my Delirium Tremens snifter/tulip glass. Pours a very, very dark brown that looks like muddy water once filled. Ironically this isn't a bad thing. There is absolutely no head at all...and that's with an aggressive final attempt finishing out the bottle. I reviewed the appearance at 4.0 anyway since the color and clarity(or lack there of) is impressive!

Aroma is awesome! Huge oak and sweet notes. Picking up a severe amount of raisin too...although I could be mistaking that for the cherries. Very earthy and boozy. There's a slight hint of spice hiding in the back too.

Interesting flavor. I would have to personally dissagree with the Old Ale label, it more likely resembles an American style of Quadrupel. Huge raisin flavor...followed by a cabernet like aftertaste. Has low carbonation...with a solid oak, barrel aged like earthiness. Booze is pretty noticeable. Medium to thick mouthfeel/body. Overall, its a little too sweet for me, but no where near as bad as some of the quads/old ales out there where theres severe raisin overkill. Just another solid beer from Hair of the Dog.

12 oz. bottle, '09 Vintage,

A: Pours type black with a minimal if any type of head. Just a smattering of bubbles. Not a great start, but it'd change my mind.

S: Chocolate and black cherries, with some noticable residual sugar.

T: As with the nose, the dark chocolate dominates. Chocolate covered black cherry soda but in the least artificial way possible. It's that one flavour, but it's quite tasty.

M: Carbonation is minimal as per what the appearance told me. But it's not flat at all. Light carbonation is fine for this style. Very full-bodied and smooth, an elegant beverage ala dessert wine. Noticable booze, but it's not bad and will abate itself with time.

D: I paid a Jackson for this baby, was it worth it, from the beer probably not, but Beachwood was my only opportunity, and it was my birthday so I'd been eyeing this for a while. Good beer without a doubt, put 2-5 years on it; it will be amazing.

Early 2010 rate.

Bottle. Pours deep brown with a wispy head. Nose is hugely malty with heavy bourbon and oak. Not as smokey as a lot of other of their oak-aged beers. Hot, sweet, and a bit tart in the mouth. Somewhat medicinal sweetness bordering on cherry. Big and robust malt. More smoke or spice would be nice to play against the sweetness. Not cloying though, pretty enjoyable. As it opens, the bourbon and oak kind of meld together very nicely. That said, I think I would just prefer the regular Adam here.

A: A very dark but slightly transparent brown ruby tinged black. The head is a laced brown and lingers.

S: Two aromas jump out immediately, chocolate and cherries. Very interesting and unique.

T: Cherries on the front of the flavors. Toffee, caramel, vanilla, oak, and chocolate are next. It finished from the heat from the bourbon/ABV.

M: Very heavy body with some (maybe too little) carbonation.

O: Good not great. This beer IMO, is over-hyped.

A - Deep, deep red. No head to speak of, no bubbles coming to the top. Very, very dark, light only going through on the edges.

S - Huge fruit smell, raisins, dates, figs, some sort of dark. The cherry is more of a hint on the end with the overpowering dark fruit smells. Nice oaky notes in the background make this a very full and complete smell.

T - Deep raisin taste, really the biggest part of this beer. Slight bit of alcohol there, touch of vanilla, nice and oaky. I taste a little bit of cherry in there, but it is not the biggest taste at all.

M - Flat, not a ton of carbonation, but good body on it. Could use a slight touch of carbonation, heard it comes with age on this one.

D - Pretty easy to drink, never would have guessed this is 10% alcohol, quite sweet, probably a bit too much to session, but could do another.

Review from notes. Second half of my "cellar night" a week ago and one of my favorite beers that has slipped through the cracks on my reviews. 2008 bottle poured into a snifter...

A - No hiss at all when I popped the cap, slightly worried. Pours a dark brown, burgandy color. No head or lacing to speak of. Hmmm.

S - Wow. First redeming quality after the pour. Very complex. LOTS of bourbon and what I think is sherry up front. Chocolate, oak, cherry, some other dark fruits as well. Nice leathery quality in there as well which really adds nicely to the profile.

T - Bourbon, sherry, chocolate covered cherries, VERY dark malts and slight smokiness in the background on the end of the palate. Cherries and barrel aging really add some serious complexity to an already complex base beer. Really something. If only this weren't flat.

M - Pretty flat. That's about it. No carbonation at all really. Looks more like a nice dark sherry in the glass than a carbonated beer.

O - Really disappointed in this year's version. The lack of carbonation really took away from the overall enjoyment of this one. Hoping the 2009's I have don't go this route (I don't think they will).

2011 vintage sent by gford217. This beer’s made by taking the original Adam and throwing it in bourbon barrels with black cherries for 15 months. Into a tulip it goes.

Thick, syrupy purple-black. No hiss when the top pops and no head to speak of, which means no carbonation, sadly. Looks thick, murky, absorbing.

Very sweet black cherries in the nose. Also butter, vanilla, toffee and dark chocolate. Great barrel character.

Super sweet flavor, like black cherry syrup mixed with dark chocolate. I also get vanilla ice cream, oak, light hints of leather and toffee. The cherries and molasses are much more prominent here. Very slight tang at the finish.

Like I feared — flat as a pancake. There’s no alcohol in the flavor, but it shows up here, with fumes blazing through the nose. The thick, buttery, medium-full body coats the tongue nicely.

Great flavor. The lack of carbonation doesn’t destroy the experience, but come on, Alan — give me a little.

2009 vintage poured from a 12oz bottle into my CBS snifter. It poured dark brown in color and very still looking in the glass.

The aroma has big malty, dark fruit presence to it with notes of caramel, brown sugar, plum and dark cherry. I get some woody, vanilla flavors and some boozy bourbon to it that mixes in very well. Great aroma to it overall, very nice range and relative balance to it.

The taste starts out with more of the sweet, malty, fruity flavors. Towards the finish more caramel and brown sugar starts to come out to mix with the oaky, vanilla and bourbon flavors. The dark fruit and cherry flavors are there throughout, but really linger into the finish.

The mouthfeel is a little syrupy and heavy with carbonation being almost non-existent. Overall it was a very good beer. The cherries and barrel aging really added some nice depth and complexity to it that I really liked. It did feel a little overly sweet and syrupy though at times which prevented it from being a really world class beer to me. A little more balance and just a little carbonation would have gone a long way.

Received from thethrone in the Barrel 'O Beer BIF.

Essentially this is a black colored beer with no head formation.

Smell is cherry and black currant with vanilla. Lots of oak scent with chocolate and a cake batter malt aroma.

The taste starts out sweet and sour with a vanilla cherry ice cream aftertaste. Little bit of a cherry cough syrup taste in this. There is also a sourness to this that seems to come from the fruit. Smoky flavor here that really reminds me of scotch.

Mouthfeel is good.

A nice sipper, pretty much turns into cherry scotch near the middle of the glass and stays there. An interesting beer I might try this again sometime.

Big thanks to Adam (alcstradamus) for this one. 2009 vintage. Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a Blue Point snifter.

A: Big pour yields no head as carbonation struggles to escape from the brew. Beer is a dark, near opaque brownish-black. No head, so no lacing. A bit on the flat side even given its style.

S: Grapes, plums, and other fresh dark fruit. Sweet booze in the back as well as a steadily creeping soy sauciness. The aroma is there but the body is so heavy that it creates a very subdued experience.

T: Cherry and grape syrup upfront followed by soy sauce, prune juice, and booze. Very chewy and oily. It feels like I'm drinking motor oil. Super sweet with no sign of hops. Chocolatey towards the end with a maple syrup finish and a lingering sweet aftertaste that coats the entire palate.

M: Full bodied, flat, and viscous as hell. Silky smooth given the high ABV and not abrasive in the least. Oily and heavy the whole way through with a pleasantly messy finish and a filmy, lingering aftertaste.

D: A deep and rich beer that reveals an almost infinite amount of layers of flavor as I drink it, Cherry Adam is the real deal and its a beer that others in its style should strive towards. High ABV is a bit frightening at first but its not boozy at all and is in fact, super easy to get down all things considered. Seek it out!

12 oz bottle from the 2008 release courtesy of scubarex. While relaxing pre-Thanksgiving style with the wife, sister, brother, and brother-in-law at the Bavarian Lodge, I stepped out momentarily to complete this trade displaying the full force of my beer geekery. Apologies to the family, thanks to Russ. This want lasted two days in my possession. Here goes nothing.

Dark raisin in color, nearly black. Aggressive pour yields some puddled surface soap that pools at the edges leaving a nearly spotless surface.

Dark, plump black cherries. Barrel is evident in both wood and bourbon. While nice, the base beer is mostly dwarfed by the barrel aging, which is a bit of a shame considering the base can be so damn nice. If this beer could somehow pull off a happier medium, this would be a stunner.

Sweet dark cherries bat lead off while the bourbon/sherry partnership leads through the heart of the order. The bottom of the order is firm tannis and wood along with the smoky peat and tobacco qualities that make the original, not some National League light hitting pitcher. It's really along the back end that any real semblance of Adam is truly distinguishable.

Mouthfeel is slightly syrupy and could use a bit more carbonation to carry it through. Barrel aging has certainly thinned out the base. While shooting for the moon here, if somehow this beer could carry the mouthfeel of the original, I'd cannonball through the kitchen window for another. As it stands, mild huzzahs from the couch will suffice.

Good, but not great, an example of a beer I'd hoped would be better than its inspiration, but doesn't quite deliver. I'm thankful for the effort, but I'll take the non barrel aged version.

Pours a dark burgundy. Absolutely no head, no lacong.... No carbonation either. I can literally count the number of bubbles in the glass. I believe the 2011 batch must be flat. Has strong cherry and oak notes on the nose. Only a very tiny amount of carbonation on the mouth. Beyond sweet. Strong cherry flavor is present. Oaky after taste and a malty finish. I don't know what to expect to age the 2011 but I'm sure it will need more time for this to settle. Nonetheless, this is a nice beer.

Bottle (2011)

Thanks for opening this with me, baybassboy!

(Aged for 1 year)

Dark ruby in color, nearly brown, with very little visible carbonation. This leaves dots and thin sheets of lacing down the glass.

Complex aroma, though not quite as complex as Adam from the Wood's surprisingly--though just as good. The oak and dark fruits are present again, along with loads of vibrant, sweet, crushed cherry aroma. Bold and expressive.

The flavor is quite nice, and the added cherries really transform this beer even further. Lots of chocolate, oak, and earth flavors present, along with lots of cherry flavor. My only complaint would be that the cherry flavor seems to add a touch of an acidic quality to the overall drinking experience, though this is still quite delicious.

Medium bodied with very low carbonation.

Very nice, though I significantly preferred Adam from the Wood.

Thanks Ron!

Had right after AFTW. The expectations from this one were lowered so it came as a nice surprise.

Pinkish brown colored, you can tell there's cherries in it. Vanilla, kriek in the aroma. Very inviting.

Medium cherry notes in the taste but what makes it is the intense and awesome dessert wine character... sweet but relatively clean and very decadent. Dark fruit and chocolate. The almost non-existent carbonation works for this beer.

Not quite the same level as Matt but close. Bonus was Ryan's share that I got to drink because he couldn't stand it!

12oz bottle poured into a Hair of the Dog tasting glass, shared with my father for Father's Day.

The beer pours a murky, deep brown color, hues of burgundy with a fizzy brown head that vanishes instantly leaving no film or lace behind. The aroma is of rich black cherry, soft, luscious bourbon, slight vanilla and oak with some dark chocolate finding its way around as well. The flavors are a bit more expansive, but a little less balanced, lots of cherry, charred wood, bourbon, tobacco, spices, toffee, chocolate, a touch of vanilla and wood, but lots of rich, malted grain. The body is rich, thick, coats the mouth well, low carbonation that finishes quite smoothly.

Verdict: A very nice take on Adam, a really solid Old Ale as it is, but one that might have a little too much going on. It has lots of components from the base beer, the cherries and the barrels, but none of them really seem to meld together in harmony. I enjoyed sipping this over the course of nearly an hour, and would do so again, but I'm not convinced this is a better version than the base beer.

Review #700

12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter.

A very aggressive pour yields a paper thin layer of head that quickly disappears to a few bubbles here and there. Nothing in terms of lacing unfortunately. The beer itself is essentially black as night. Smell has a strong malt character with molasses, leather, and tobacco. Dark ripe cherries, oak, and gooey fudge in the nose as well. Taste begins with tart cherries, rich caramel, and some smokey wood. Midway the fudge flavors emerge with some tobacco leaves and bourbon. Aftertaste is sweet with vanilla beans, leather, and some coffee flavors as well. Full body with a silky smooth feel from the almost non-existant carbonation. The booze is present making this one a sipper for sure. Not bad, but I was expecting a bit more from this highly talked about beer. Thanks again Dan-O you little bitch.

Pours an opaque brown with red highlights and no head. Only a few bubble clinging to the glass. D'oh.

Smell is top notch. Bourbon, cherries, alcohol, and brown sugar. Beautiful aroma.

Taste is also excellent. Bourbon, cherries, dark fruit, caramel sugar - but not overly sweet. Surprisingly smooth - not boozy. Not terribly complex, but delicious.

Mouthfeel is dissapointing. Completely flat. If properly carbonated this beer would be exceptional. Instead it is "merely" excellent.

Poured into a sniffer, thanks to texasclimber for sharing this one.

Appearance: Hazy deep dark red with essentially no head.

Aroma: Sweet cherries, vanilla, licorice, bourbon, alcohol, and raisins.

Taste: Almost cloyingly sweet, big cherry flavor, bourbon, oak. The sherry flavor is pretty strong, there is even what appears to me to be a flavor that can be described as finger nail polish, but its at a very low level and doesn't take away anything from the beer. Complex to say the least.

Mouthfeel: Thick and chewy and syrupy with no carbonation and a very sweet finish.

Overall: It was a very good beer, but honestly, I'm not sure I could even drink an entire bottle of it. Luckily there are people to share with.
