Oregon, United States

Style: Old Ale

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.

Glad to tick this beer off my list.

Little to no carbonation. Nice nose of sticky pudding, dates and some alcohol. Tastes delicious, sweet caramel finish. The lack of any carb lends to a fairly thin mouthfeel but was still silky smooth

The color of the body is a dark woody brown topped with a creamy blanket dying to a thin tan ring leaving wavy lace swept away by slowly descending clear legs.

Aroma is sharp and woody with caramel, dark fruits and cigars.

Taste is woody and surprisingly chocolatey, as un-aged Adam was as well. I also get dark fruit and old, but nonetheless boozy, musty whiskey.

Smoother and a little thicker than the peach treatment we got, it's still hot, thin and dry.

Dark brown sluggy beer, some sediment at the bottom. Slick oily mouthfeel, a slight booziness but concealed nicely. raisin, fig, caramel, dark chocolate, some woody oak notes, real solid beer.
