Surprised to see there's no October thread up yet. Hope I'm not stepping on anyone's toes by starting it. Saturdays in the cellar once again as I finish up a stretch at work and now can look forward to a nice two weeks off. I'm certain I've had Cherry Adam From the Wood before. But evidently I didn't bother to review it or write anything down about it. Also I decided to cellar a bottle, even though cherry's are not the most reliable flavour to last. I do have my notes about the base Adam to compare it to. Bottle from 2015, clearly before I had even the limited knowledge set I am currently working with regarding aging/cellaring beers. Mostly flat muddy dark reddish brown pour... Working in medicine the first thing this hue makes me think of is old old old blood in bodily fluids, but most people would probably take that descriptor as a negative. It's not intended as such. Flat. No head to speak of. Nose is sweet with leather and tobacco and spicy barrel, but mellow. Richer than my notes suggest I got from the base Adam. Notes of mellowed barrel spice as well as some boozy figs and tobacco and chocolate. An oozingly decadent sweet note is the legacy of cherry... it doesn't taste like straight up cherry any more but you can tell that the cherry is the antecedent for the current manifestation. Sticky thick and coating with a surprising little carbonation presence that almost has the same feel as like piquant spice (but is clearly carbonation not heat). This has held up remarkably well, and is still a fantastically delicious beer. Cheers!
