Style: Old Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 12.00%

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.

12oz from the brewery

A: Sits down in the glass. Dark brown and somewhat murky. Stains the glass.

N: Lots of smoke, bourbon, leather, and tobacco. Dark chocolate, brown sugar, and some dark cherry. Caramel and vanilla.

T: Superb blend of smoke and chocolate and sugar. Very balanced in terms of some sweetness, bitterness, and some salt.

: Thick and carbonated. Easily drinkable for its ABV and despite its heft. O: Doing really well at 1.5 years old. Drained this way too fast considering the price tag. Good thing there’s more.
