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Adam is a recreation of a historic beer-style, originally made in Dortmund, Germany and was the first Beer ever released from this Brewery.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.

Had from tap at HotD. Poured into a pint glass and pours a dark brown color with a small head. Rich, but balanced, aromas of espresso beans, chocolate, caramel and some warm toffee aromas. Very pungent and very good complexity. Full bodied and extremely smooth. There isn’t even a hint of the alcohol on this. Great depth and polish with wonderful notes of toffee, warm caramel, dark chocolate and some bits of smoke notes as well. This was killer stuff. One of the best brews on my trip to portland and I was damn glad I finally had a chance to try it.

Bottle from trade. Big thanks on this one, as it is a long time want. Finally! Batch Number 82 (whatever that means) poured 1/31/15. Pours hearty and thick dark brown, looking almost black as it settles in the glass, with a bit creamy khaki brown head. Aroma of brown sugar, some spicy hops, sweet molasses and caramel, toffee, whoah. Smells rich and sweet. Flavor is chocolatey breadyness, peated malts (was not expecting that!), smokey mess mixed with sweet molasses and caramel. Lots going on here, but balanced nicely by the hops and finishes with a light crisp bitterness and light lingering sweetness. Rich body with plus carbonation, lively, yum. Lived up to expectations and included some unexpected flavors win the smokiness/peatyness.

On tap at the brewery. It's all been said before about this beer. A great beer for sure but dare I say overrated? Great and complex flavors. But a bit too far on the sweet side for my tastes and the alcohol is a bit too prominent. That said, I'd drink it all the time if I could get it for 4.75 a pour where I live.

chinchill (2283) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 6, 2015
12 oz bottle (batch 84; 2011) poured dark reddish-brown with a good head. Wonderful aroma. Given the aroma, the flavor is initially disappointing but it finishes strong and leaves a great aftertaste. Good complexity. ABV partially hidden. Smooth, medium-full body.

Bottle during (mostly) Hair of the Dog beers tasting. Many thanks again Jef! Side by side comparison of batch #74 and batch #82 #74 = 4,1 APPEARANCE: dark brown beer, almost no head. NOSE: chocolate, little smoked, malts. TASTE: chocolate, balanced, coffee, mocha, nice. #82 = 3,9. APPEARANCE: dark brown beer, nice stable beige head. NOSE: chocolate, peated, some mint. TASTE: smoked, peated, chocolate, very nice. Though dislike the peated effect of this one a little...

JefVerstraete (1676) - Ghent, BELGIUM - DEC 24, 2014
Bottle from a trade. Shared @ HOTD tasting. Dark brown, thin layer of foam. Soft carbonation. Aroma of dark fruit with a subtle peaty tang. Sweet with light bitter finish. We opened a batch 74 and a batch 85. The 74 was more flat and almost no smoke left. 85 was more lively and complex.
