Adam is a recreation of a historic beer-style, originally made in Dortmund, Germany and was the first Beer ever released from this Brewery.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

Holy Goodness Batman!! Pours a mighty black death color with medium head. Aroma is laced with alcohol and smoke. The taste... Mmmmm, the taste... Rich malt that must have been smoked for days. Very rich and malty with a little bitterness. Oddly enough, the body was not very thick. Very nice brew, although I think I will resign from having it again until the weather turns to the coolness of autumn and winter. Mighty fine!

Batch 60 I tried this beer today when it was about 90 degrees out and humid as all hell. Probably not the best time to try this beer for the first time. This beer seems better suited as a winter warmer. Anyway, onto the beer. Pours dark brown with a small tan head. Similar raisin flavor to DFH raison d’etre. Not much in the hops department. This beer leaves a great flavor and feel in your mouth. High alcohol taste which adds to the warming effect. Great stuff.

Batch 57, Sampled June, 2004
Pours a dark amber, almost approaching black color. The beer is highly carbonated and is topped by a rocky brown head. A rich aroma of rum, raisins, and smoke is found in the nose. The smoke aroma comes to dominate the nose after a couple of sniffs. The taste is sweet and thick, this is a very rich beer. I get flavor notes of fig, raisins, rum, vanilla, aged wood, peat, and scotch.. This is pretty good stuff. I really like the subtly smokiness, it adds another dimension and does not over-power any of the other components. There are some spicy hop notes and a fruitiness that if not hop derived is certainly accentuated by them. The finish is warming from the alcohol, but only in a smooth good way. Overall this is quite the malty brew, it does have a bit of balancing bitterness in the finish, but only just enough.

12oz bottle via trade with loweredsixth (Joe). 06.10.04 Sweet lord! Pours an absolutely gorgeous thick, rich, murky, purple-hazed, milk chocolate sludge brown. The head is gigantic, caramel-colored, foamy and instantly leaves a coating lace. Smells thick and sweet and roasty...prunes, milk chocolate, cherry, brandy, spice - what is this stuff? - it reminds of mince pie. Flavor is rich and smokey; dark fruits and brisket; lots of alcohol in flavor (holy cow! this is 10%!?). Absolutely a wonderful beer. Some bitterness surprises at the finish, but it is quite a nice surprise. This beer reminds of smoked fresh figs(?). I absolutely love it. THANKS LOWEREDSIXTH!!!

UPDATED: NOV 3, 2004 I had this brew on tap at the HOTD brewery. One hell of an amazing beer, dark brown/red color with an off-white head. Strong malty aroma with some amazing hops blended in. Taste was sweet with hints of dark fruit from the malt, with almost a smoke finish. Way to go Alan on bringing back a once extinct brew style.

A totally unique beer. The best term I can use is Imperial Brown Ale that has a barleywine like finish. I need to get some more.

Bottled; Batch #59. Brownaler described this at our tasting as "an Imperial brown ale" and I tend to agree. A very hoppy flavor with very spicy notes throughout. Finish was smooth and warming. A new all-time favorite for me.

zathrus13 (1765) - Mount Laurel, New Jersey, USA - JUN 7, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 8, 2004 Color is dark brown, with aromas of hops, alcohol, burnt malt and oak. Taste is similar to a thin bodied stout; chocolate, toasty malt, some coffee, and a slight bitter aftertaste. Very interesting and unique. Thanks to sick_boy282 for this one.

desurfer (1290) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - JUN 3, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2004 Pours a deep, hazy garnet with an oversized tan head. Aroma of cherries, plums, yeast, and a bit of alcohol. Very vinous. Flavor is quite alcoholic with a decent amount of sweet and bitter, nicely balanced. Not a lot of carbonation considering the huge head formation. Like a fine red wine, except much cheaper!

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - MAY 30, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2004 Dark brown beer with a foamy light tan head. Aroma is full and sweet with tones of chocolate and cake and some alcohol - very delicious. Flavor is sweet at first but ends in a bitter dry finish. Fruit, dark roasted malt and some smokey tones. A thick mouthful and an excellent beer. Thanks for the trade Scott (austinpowers)!
