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Adam is a recreation of a historic beer-style, originally made in Dortmund, Germany and was the first Beer ever released from this Brewery.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

Bottle - WOW. Pours a deep brown with a large tan head. Aroma is malt, cocoa, and a lot of dark fruit (plum, raisin, etc). Taste is dark fruit up front into a wonderful cocoa and malt finish that masked the alcohol so well - I could also detect some woody spice, perhaps pepper. A sublime smoky characteristic imbued the entire beer with life and uniqueness I’ve seen few times before. I happened upon this at my favorite beer store and figured I’d try a new brewery - I’ll be trying a lot more from these guys. Home run.

12oz bottle poured gently into hotel cup. Cola brown body with no head and great tan lacing. Aroma is caramel, nuts, molasses, dark fruits like plum and fig, anise, a touch of bakers chocolate. Taste initially borders on strong sweetness with chocolate, brown sugar, raisin, and maple syrup flavors. Light bitterness comes on the swallow with nutty and tobacco notes. Some smoke and band-aid flavors come late. Medium-full body, thick syrupy texture, virtually no carbonation, boozy sweet and tongue-coating finish.

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

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.
