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Adam is a recreation of a historic beer-style, originally made in Dortmund, Germany and was the first Beer ever released from this Brewery.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

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.

Batch #47: Very dark amber color. Extremely LARGE head and LONG-LASTING head, tan in color. Medium sized nose of sweet malt, bannana and spice - very unique aromas. Medium to full palate, crisp due to carbonation (this thing is carbonated!). Big flavors of sweet malt, roasted notes, some spice, with a touch of bittersweet hops. Long bittersweet finish with a touch of drying hops - smooth finish. Excellent beer. Very rich and big on flavors - reminds me of an overblown barleywine.

Batch 47.Poured a huge tan head that was thick and the consistency of whipped cream. Reddish brown color. Aroma was malty with a hint of hops balancing it out. Very little alcohol in the nose considering the ABV. The head is now receding in the glass around the edges leaving a floater of foam in the middle. Now the first taste. WOW! Huge roasted malt taste but the hops are standing out perfectly. Alcohol is present but sitting nicely in the background. Carbonation is high explaining the head but also giving a velvety mouthfeel that lets the beer just slide down. For such a big beer this is remarkably easy to drink.

Batch 45. One of the most interesting beers I’ve ever had. I was slightly put off by the strong alcohol but intrigued by the boldness of it all. A sipping beer to end all sipping beers. One of the first times I’ve found myself enjoying hops this strong.
