I don’t know how Alan does it, but Adam is one of those beers that I cannot get enough of. Aroma is dark fruits, roasty malts chocolate, leather, and some hop bitterness. Flavor is semi-sweet chocolate, dark fruits, malts, and a slightly bitter finish. Really good stuff.

Wow. Chocolate that rounds out to smoky. I like the transition on the palate. This is 10%? Tried at tasting room. Solid.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: Boozy fruit, and lightly sweet
Appearance: No head ?!? Darkbrown, cloudy on the pour
Taste: heavy cloying sweetness, lightly bitter
Palate: light body, thin oily slick mouthfeel, flat, astringent, finish
Overall: An odd, off-beat beer. The lack of head on a vigorous pour hints that something was not quite right with my sample. The aroma and taste was unique and sweet, indeed a desert beer if there ever was one!

Great Smokey flavor, very sweet. Good for dessert or after dinner. Zero carbonation and absolutely no head or lacing. Very fruity with a touch of molasses. Great sipping brew.

bottled 5/09. thanks again wes. clear brown ruby with a small beige head. big aroma of a leather jacket and mild smoke with tobacco and hints of ash. flavor is ashy with heavy leather. some earthy dirt and dark fruity notes peek through later. pretty dry with a medium body. the perfect amount of smoked malt.

A very nice beer. Don’t like a lot of smokey beers but this one is well done. Pours a dark brown with reddish highlights. Aromas are smoked meat and hints of apple and dark fruit. Flavors are smoke, bubblegum, roasted malt, and tangy grape finish. Good stuff.

Purchased at Wally’s in Los Angeles, CA; enjoyed while watching True Detective. Appearance is very dark and murky with no head. Aroma is pretty complex, notes of molasses, chocolate, vanilla, dark fruits, definitely like a fruitcake. Taste is real potent, lots of sugar and sweetness, figs, molasses, fruits, raisins, odd mouthfeel, but overall pretty good.

At my place on a Friday at 5:20. Pours milkshake brown with frothy head hat stays. Aroma is caramel earthy hops, musky. Taste is caramel hops, fizzy barleywine, earthy malt. Finish is medium to long and nice, ends kinda clean.

Batch 91. I was really looking forward to this one. Ordered it on line. Can't get HOD beers in Michigan. Maybe, I was expecting too much, but I was quite disappointed. Aroma is nice, but the taste and palate is lacking. Mouthfeel is medium, but with zero carbonation, totally flat. Taste is some dark fruit, but I get a strange, dusty dryness in the throat. Hopefully, Fred is much better. Ordered one if those as well. I think there was something wrong with my bottle of Adam.
