Adam is a recreation of a historic beer-style, originally made in Dortmund, Germany and was the first Beer ever released from this Brewery.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

One of the best non wood aged beers. Just gets better with time. I have tasted no other beer like it.

NOSE: chocolate, little smoked, malts. TASTE: chocolate, balanced, coffee, mocha, nice. #82 = 3,9. APPEARANCE: dark brown beer, nice stable beige head. NOSE: chocolate, peated, some mint. TASTE: smoked, peated, chocolate, very nice. Though dislike the peated effect of this one a little...

Bottle from a trade. Shared @ HOTD tasting. Dark brown, thin layer of foam. Soft carbonation. Aroma of dark fruit with a subtle peaty tang. Sweet with light bitter finish. We opened a batch 74 and a batch 85. The 74 was more flat and almost no smoke left. 85 was more lively and complex.

Received in a trade with CBOK. Thanks! This pours a beautiful extremely dark brown into a snifter. Larger off-white head lasted and laced nicely. The aroma was complex with dark chocolate, malts, raisins, prunes, dark breads, and leather. The taste was just as complex with dark fruits, dark chocolate, cream, caramel, mocha, booze and roasted nuts. Full body, flavorful finish of malts and nuts. Little booze. Very good.

dark brownish/blacl with little head. Aroma of malt and a bit of roast and not much else. Mildly shape carbonation. Good mix of hops and malt with a bit more hops than I was expecting. Nice underlying smokiness. More than subtle but still unobtrusive. No real heat on the finish but there is some spicy bitterness. Smooth for 10%. Nothing mind blowing here but very well executed.

Bottle thanks to prufrockstar! Pours a hazy brown with fluffy white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma is actually big hop up front, vegetal pine with a big malty backbone. Taste is nicely balanced American strong ale with a great hoppy middle and the alcohol amazingly well hidden. Wow, amazing.
