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.

The was a let down for me. I have been trying to get this beer for a while now and I finally got a couple of bottles. This beer is way way way overhyped.

A: Dark muddy brown with no head. What you would expect from a BA old ale.

S: Intense heavy malty notes with some vanilla and oak from the wood. Finishes with some nice bourbon heat.

T: Way less flavorful then I was expecting. The flavors in the aroma are there but they taste blunted. Disappointing.

M: Nearly uncarbonated and a little thin.

O: Very slightly above average for an old ale. Nothing special. Not worth seeking out in a trade especially given the asking price for it.
