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Adam is a recreation of a historic beer-style, originally made in Dortmund, Germany and was the first Beer ever released from this Brewery.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

I had to wait until my friend Adam came over before we could sample this. The head retention was absolutely ridiculous. I was finished with this stuff and there was still about 2.54 centimeters of head. The aroma was unique - smoky, slightly woody? Maybe some fruitiness. The flavor was excellent, with components of caramel, slight citrus. The aftertaste is more-ish, as Michael Jackson would say. A wonderful beer, too bad I could only get my hands on one bottle.

An intense, extremely creamy dark ale. Complexity is the hallmark of this beer, with notes of plum and dates, chocolate, smoke, peat, and coffee. For me, itís an absolute necessity to lay this beer down for a few months before I have a bottle. Some will argue that oxidation detracts from Adam, but I donít think there are many beers more suited to its effects. (Itís also quite tasty with vanilla ice cream.)

Batch #51: Yowza! This beer is challenging. Lots of raisins, plums, dark chocolate, roasted malt. I taste a lot of Special B in this, although Iím not sure thatís what they used. Almost zero carbonation. Subtle alcohol aroma but no alcohol flavor. Less body than I was expecting, although hardly thin or watery. Fairly sweet. Moderately bitter. Tongue numbing after a while. Letís all chug a liter and sleep for a day!

A liquid dark chocolate color. Aroma of roasted malts, oak barrel used for aging scotch. Prune schnapps and blueberry syrup flavor, rich and thick. Very little carbonation. Makes me wish I was in a cabin in the mountains on a cold winter night.

Very smooth malty brew. The high Abv% was masked well, just a little to chewy and malty for me...although itís probably not the best brew to sample during the summer in South Florida. Thanks to Beerlimey I can give this one another shot.

Very tasty. I would compare it to Dogfish Headís Imort Ale. Just slightly less complex than that, The Adam has a more pronounced alcohol flavor and is heavier in body.

It poured with a huge head. Itís very sweet. As others have noted, it would go well w/ chocolate. Also, the alcohol is very apparent. It does have a sweet taste to it. This is a unique brew.

A very fine dark ale. A slight hoppy nose, a dark murky brown color, with a massive light brown head that lasts and lasts. Great range of complex flavors that I still havent sorted out. Not for wimps.

Deep, deep purple; Head was fluffy with medium bubbles and great retention- great lace as well. Slight tartness to start. Becomes grapy right away. Alcohol well hidden in this one. Grapiness stiks around for a while. The alocohol does catch up a bit at 2/3 mark. Hops are of the aroma variety apparently. Malt definitely defines this beer.

Dark porter-ish color with a sweet port aroma. The alcohol is very apparent in Adam --more even than in Thor, which has 16% abv. Itís a lot like what I tend to think of as a barley wine -- over sweet, strong, alcohol-y. It has a roasty finish, and the alcohol is present all the way from start to finish.
