Style: Old Ale

Availability: Rotating

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.

hige huge thanks to stx00lax for this guy! this was a huge want of mine, and honestly i still owe him. he sent me a spair to age.

12oz slight chilled bottled poured intio eclipse snifters, had side by side with batch 82 of adam.

a- this one looks awesome! alightly thinner than adam with a deep dark redish hue on the edges. about the same amount of head as regular adam.

s- wow this one anells absolutely amazing! as soon as i cracked its richness spread into the room. tons of vanilla and sweetness, like adam amplified. tons of chocolate and wood.

t- follows the nose exactly. this is truly superb. vanilla, wood, slight cherry, right amount of sweet.

m- great hefty body and perfect carbonation.

o- wow! i was going in expecting a lot but this one still succeeded to impress me. i cant find one bad thing with beer. id love to have this side by side with ba 4d, both beers are world class, i think this one might beat it just barely.
