Adam is a recreation of a historic beer-style, originally made in Dortmund, Germany and was the first Beer ever released from this Brewery.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

Batch 58, in case anyone is taking notes. I gotta say, this doesn't do it for me. This is an awesome brewery that makes some awesome beers (I gave my only perfect score to this brewery's Doggie Claws), but this one is a bit odd. Scent is definately of dark fruits with a bit of alcohol hiding. Taste is of raisins, apricots, and peat moss. Way too earthy for my tastes. Mouthfeel is tart and mineral. Overall, this might be your thing but it's not mine. Definately give me a try as it is very unique, but it just doesn't do it for me. I wanted to like it a lot more than I did.

Very Unique. Batch 52. Deep Brown in Color, with a huge malt/chocolate aroma. Mouth feel is silky smooth and very rich. Sweet and smokey flavor that adds hops toward the finish. Rich, chocolate finish. If you can find this, get it. Then drink it. Overall, a wonderful example of what can be done in small batches in an american artisan brewery.

CapFlu (4910) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 14, 2004
(Bottle) Pours a massive, frothy, non-dissipating, brown head and the darkest of brown bodies. Highly carbonated. 5-minutes of non-dissipation in the head? Nose of a barleywine and porter mix - not what I expected from an "old ale". Porter texture (oily and gritty) with plums, cocoa powder and whiskey flavours. High ABV detected. Excellent and perculiar in every way. Strong, wild hop finish.

ToadMan (559) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 11, 2004
Rich dark color with rich ruby tones. Huge frothey light chocolate head with loads of lace. Big aroma of floral hops, cherry, malt, and yeast. Taste is dry malts with a yeast presence, tones of chocolate, cherry, and plum, lightly floral and hoppy with a moderately bitter finish. Excellent thick silky texture. Too much yeast and bitter hops detract from some of the other outstanding flavors, but still a very good beer.

Batch #57. Pours a three-fingered thick, creamy, off-white head that goes very slowly and leaves gobs of lace. Pour this very slowly. Opaque muddy color. Medium carbonation. Nose is malty Starts different - sweet with hops, finishes slightly hoppy and bitter but not bad. Alcohol is less noticeable than in the Fred. $3.90 for a 12oz bottle.

wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JAN 26, 2004
Bottle-batch 56. Dark ruby red hue. Large head--I mean really large--4 inches. Makes me worry about gushing. Nice lacing and--oh my I think I see the face of Richard Nixon in the foam. Aroma is wonerfully complex--fruity and sweet. Flavor is unnexpected--smokey, with hints of chocolate, and long roasty bitter aftertaste where the alcohol lingers. However large the head, it is still an excellent beer as the flavor and aroma mix to bring forth a sort of Belgian/German hybrid. The flavor becomes more sweet as you drink the beer and since it is quite cold here in NC right now, it really hits the spot.

HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - JAN 22, 2004
Batch 41: Pours a deeep brown color with a small head. Syrupy/Caramel aroma. This must have been on the shelf for some time for the head it poured was must smaller than others experienced. The taste was a complex, thick tangy, slightly medicinal, with noticeable alcohol.
