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Adam is a recreation of a historic beer-style, originally made in Dortmund, Germany and was the first Beer ever released from this Brewery.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

The first impression is a strong one as the aroma is overwhelming and pleasant. Reminds me of a playground near a beach. That said, the taste underwhelms. It gives a 'comfort zone' in the drinking but doesn't give much more. Its a full taste in the mouth and little aftertaste. Overall, I'd say this beer is all bark and no bite.

omnivore (270) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 29, 2004
Dark woody brown with a creamy tan head. Amazingly strong aroma. Hops and malt and fruit with a lingering smell of cotton candy that tickles the tip of the nose. The flavor is broad and woody. Much less sweet than the aroma would lead one to expect. There's a burnt wood flavor that clings to the roof of the mouth, while the tongue is puckered by a almost lambic-like kick. VERY unusual. Quite nice.

bu11zeye (12576) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAR 24, 2004
(Bottle) Pours a dark brown color with amber highlights and a medium-sized tan head. Smokey aroma. Flavor of smoked sausage and cigars. Did not care for it at first, but it began to grow on me by the end of the glass.

beerhugger (542) - Oshawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 4, 2004
Slightly see through at the edges, otherwise a rich dark chocolate brown with a cloudy tan head. Beautiful looking ale. Sweet caramel and fruit with some mild alcohol evident on nose. Bubbly - at times almost too carbonated - chocolate and plums and malts stroll on in before slowly leaving you wanting to know more. Good stuff.

Gromit (479) - Port Orchard, Washington, USA - MAR 2, 2004
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.

mnbeerguy (11) - Northfield, Minnesota, USA - FEB 16, 2004
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 (5074) - 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.

jimhilt (2542) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 6, 2004
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.

AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - FEB 1, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 27, 2004 Beautiful reddish color. Nice big ole tan head that doesn't quit. Aroma is of alcohol and licorice. Very soft and supple texture. Tons of malt and carmel flavor. Very sweet and stomach warming beer. Finish is of alcohol and smoke.
