2009 vintage, poured into my brand new Kwak glass!

A-Opaque, dark brown with a little bit of tan head.

S-Boozy with lots of caramel and brown sugar, raisiny with sweet cherries.

T-Brown sugar, toasted marshmallow, raisins, cherries, slight roast kicks in. Pretty heavily boozy, but still very nice.

M-A bit heavy, nicely sweet, the heat lingers.

O-Yes, please.

Thanks to Jerz for sharing this one at his bottle share

Look: Dark maroon color to the point that is almost plum colored I would say. Very little head

Smell: The nose is big on cherries and also carries some oak and just a trace of alcohol very nice nose

Taste: Almost mirrors the nose but I actually like the taste a bit more than the nose. The beer has the same flavors of the base beers leather and tobacco and then you add in a nice black cherry flavor and the flavors merry very well together.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with low carbonation

Overall: I do not have much experience with HotD beers but I do love Adam and this one destroys the base beer. The beer is overall solid and was one of my favorites of the night

Serving type: bottle
