COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Adam is a recreation of a historic beer-style, originally made in Dortmund, Germany and was the first Beer ever released from this Brewery. He is made with Northwest hops, organic pilsner malt, and a variety of specialty grains. The beer is rich and smokey, with notes of chocolate and dark fruit. Best served as a dessert beer. It is great with cigars, or just a warm fire and good company.

superspak (3506) - Michigan, USA - FEB 1, 2013
12 ounce bottle into snifter; Batch 77, bottled 8/13/2009. Pours cloudy almost opaque dark reddish brown color with a small light khaki head with poor retention, that reduces to a thin lacing cap that lasts. Minimal spotty lacing, and some nice alcohol legs as well. Aromas of huge raisin, prune, fig, molasses, toffee, caramel, chocolate, toast, dark bread, leather, tobacco, earth, wood, and herbal earthiness. Insanely complex and balanced aromas with big strength; Wow. Taste of big raisin, fig, molasses, toast, toffee, prune, leather, tobacco, chocolate, roasted malt, dark bread, light char, earth, wood, and herbal earthiness. No bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark fruits, molasses, toast, toffee, caramel, chocolate, dark bread, leather, tobacco, earth, wood, light char, and herbal earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible flavor balance with huge complexity of malty notes; with zero cloying flavors present after the finish. Light carbonation and very full bodied; with a very slick, creamy, and lightly syrupy mouthfeel that is incredible. Alcohol is insanely well hidden with almost zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a world class old ale! Huge complexity and balance of malty flavors; and dangerously smooth to sip on. This blew me away, wow.

At the 8th tasting (round 1), held at Vlada’s Beerville pub in Belgrade-Serbia. Bottle, a treat from our beloved mate luttonm from Seattle-USA. Grazie, this makes us feel honored. Pours unfiltered Turkish coffee color, only some bubbles here and there. Nose: wow! Tons of leather notes, dust, under spirit cherries, wood. Mouth: non-offensive oxidation, flat body, starts with a juicy cherries blast, ends earthy, a bit tart. Rich and great. Mammia Mia!

bartzluke (391) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 22, 2015
3 oz pour into a stemmed tasting glass from tap at the brewery in Portland. Black and so opaque I can see myself in it. Moderate lingering cream-colored head. Full bodied, silky, creamy and very smooth. Rich smokey leather nose. Taste is very flavorful. Smoke, chocolate, a bit of scotchy booziness. Deep and flavorful. Leaves smoke and booze on the tongue. Great layers of flavors.

Pour is a murky brown with a small tan head. Aroma is a big earthy malt with an equally nice molasses. Flavor is also a huge chewy brown sugar and molasses laiden malt. Some dark fruit and even some smoke make an appearence. very rich an well done beer.

Adam, a dark, nut-brown pour, the liquid capped with a sliver of dense khaki head, soft and seemingly tenacious. The aroma from my glass is nutty; rich figs steeped in caramelizing brown sugar, and yes, just a bit smoky. Right off the bat and without even thinking about it, I’m craving a cigar, dark libraries and old books. There is so much more to that scene imagined, but I shouldn’t go into it now. Something akin to film noir, but so much more modern... The head clings to the surface, not letting go for a second as I tip the glass for a swallow. The carbonation is just right, carrying the moderately sweet brew passed my lips and over my tongue; full-bodied, but not heavy at all. A bite on my gums, the flavor is smokier than the aroma; the fruit becoming darker and more tantalizing with each draw. I drink in, I breathe out, the experience will need to happen again, I’m sure of it. The next time, I will age this and find yet another whole and complex profile within the bottle. I am hooked. This is so very nice.
