Hair of the Dog Cherry Adam from the Wood

Hair of the Dog Cherry Adam from the Wood

Aged with black cherries in bourbon barrels for 15 months. Fantastic sweetness from the cherries and oh so good! Also pictured: J.W. Lees Harvest Ale 2000.

Holy Moses this beer is doing crazy dances in my mouth. It is 25% aged in bourbon barrels and clocks in at a whopping 14.5%! Aa little bit of pucker and a thick bourbon flavored coating on my tongue. Woo!!!

Mikkeler Chinook Single Hop IPA

Mikkeler Chinook Single Hop IPA

Brewed entirely with Chinook hops. This amber beauty smells and tastes very citrusy. Nice hop flavor that's strong and up front, but doesn't linger much...maybe as it warms up.

Another cellar dweller dated SEP 08 2009. Not bad! Not too sweet the way the old Avery Hog Heaven tasted.

Avery Hog Heaven

Avery Hog Heaven

I've had this bottle sitting around for a good few years...maybe 2008? It's a barleywine that tasted like an IPA. lots of hop aroma, but much more mellow than the fresh bottle that I remember.
