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Adam is a recreation of a historic beer-style, originally made in Dortmund, Germany and was the first Beer ever released from this Brewery.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

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2005 Batch 36. I must not be man enough for this beer, because despite my best efforts and my appreciation of what this beer does well, I couldn’t squeeze enjoyment from the experience. I took this for a barleywine at first taste. Lovely dark and murky appearance. Malty aroma with considerable complexity in the mouth: early smokey and malty, then chocolatey and brandy, some vinuous notes, and the sweetness lingering on in the late finish. A bit acidic, a bit bitter. I never completely warmed to the flavor combinations, and I kept looking for water to cleanse my palate of it. Horses for courses, as they say. (Original rating: 7-5-7-5-14) // Later re-try from Batch 60. It strikes me that this is a gueuze/stout blend, with raisin-on-a-band-aid flavors. Side by side with Adam from the Wood, it is totally not the same beer. Massive whipped cream head forming mountainous peaks and valleys in my glass.

’Yo A-DAWG’, the pour looks more like ’Guinness’, deep brown, cloudy me thinks, and a very large, creamy light chocolate head, and more lace than Per and Venom can shake a stick at. Nose is caramel, deep earthy malt, smokey, also a bit of peat muskyness, fresh ’Black Walnuts’ also come to mind. Front is malt, the top is medium, the finish is acidic, dry, nicely hopped and ’POW, SLAM, ZOWIE’ the alcohol hits you like your 5 ’X’ spouses looking for their back alimony!. One damn fine beer, and one I will have to find a local source for. Ranks #48 on my current 1000 master beer list. Thanks herbjones

Nice dark garnet color. Great plum/ripe fruit aroma. Strong alcohol prescence that seems to soften at mid-bottle. Oak notes with a slight smokiness in the flavor. Overall, a very complex beer thats like nothing i’ve ever had.

Amazingly good. It is syrupy. Taste like it has chocolate in it. A little bit too strong on alcohol, though.

Batch #52: Totally unique. Malty and rich, complex and somewhat spicy. Truly delicious. Thanks to: Da_Silky1, Sick_boy283 and Trader Joe’s ($1.99/ 12 oz.and well worth it.)

Good god! This one’s truly amazing. It’s an ale...wait, a porter...no, a schwarzbier. Fascinating flavor! Must get more.
