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Adam is a recreation of a historic beer-style, originally made in Dortmund, Germany and was the first Beer ever released from this Brewery.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

12 ounce bottle (Batch 91) poured into a Belgian snifter. Pours dark brownish black with absolutely zero head. Aromas of tart fruit, light smoke and tobacco. Tasting notes of tart fruit, light smoke, tobacco, very slight bit of dark chocolate. Medium body with a dry finish. Juicy mouthfeel, no carbonation. I’ve had a bottle of Batch 89 before and that was much better. Smells/tastes like it might be slightly infected

At the Hair of the Dog mini-tasting. Served in a snifter. 10% It pours a dark brown with a minimal head. Lovely fruity, sherry like nose with a bunch of oak. Medium bodied, with a smooth barrel character that gives me smoke, hints of tobacco, cherry & fruits. Great stuff.

12oz bottle poured gently into hotel cup. Cola brown body with no head and great tan lacing. Aroma is caramel, nuts, molasses, dark fruits like plum and fig, anise, a touch of bakers chocolate. Taste initially borders on strong sweetness with chocolate, brown sugar, raisin, and maple syrup flavors. Light bitterness comes on the swallow with nutty and tobacco notes. Some smoke and band-aid flavors come late. Medium-full body, thick syrupy texture, virtually no carbonation, boozy sweet and tongue-coating finish.

Wow. Chocolate that rounds out to smoky. I like the transition on the palate. This is 10%? Tried at tasting room. Solid.

Aroma: Boozy fruit, and lightly sweet Appearance: No head ?!? Darkbrown, cloudy on the pour Taste: heavy cloying sweetness, lightly bitter Palate: light body, thin oily slick mouthfeel, flat, astringent, finish Overall: An odd, off-beat beer. The lack of head on a vigorous pour hints that something was not quite right with my sample. The aroma and taste was unique and sweet, indeed a desert beer if there ever was one!

Great Smokey flavor, very sweet. Good for dessert or after dinner. Zero carbonation and absolutely no head or lacing. Very fruity with a touch of molasses. Great sipping brew.
