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Adam is a recreation of a historic beer-style, originally made in Dortmund, Germany and was the first Beer ever released from this Brewery.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

This is a numbers only rating. My chicken scratch notes are not much help. Thanks for the share. Must’ve liked it.

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2014 Had the chance to taste this famous beer while being able to chat with the people from the brewery so this remains a cherished memory. Apparently a resurrection of a long-forgotten German beer style that didn’t survive the "lager revolution" there, Hair of the Dog gave it their own twist and created this multi-grained masterpiece. Shows a firm, thick, stable, pale beige head and a very dark brown colour; perfumed in an intensely complex and delicious way, a feast for the nose, impressions of strawberry, milk chocolate, raisins, caramel candy, vanilla, tobacco, woodiness, multigrain bread, leather; in the mouth a very exciting and rewarding complexity, lots of dark fruits, candi sweetness, multi-layered and utterly profound maltiness reminiscent of caramel, honey, chocolate, adorned with fascinating hints of madera wine, vanilla and mild spices, finish creamy, warming and balancing the complex sweetness with an elegant and well-balanced toasted bitterness. It is a delight describing beers of this quality.

Batch 74 purchased from HOTB about two years ago. Pours a nearly flat dark reddish brown. No head. Aromas of dark fruits, alcohol, smoke, leather, caramel. Flavor brings out some dark chocolate, maybe like bacon dark chocolate. The taste is definitely sweet but there in a bit of an astringency. Maybe this one should have sat a bit longer, tough to tell. Still really great. Medium thick mouthfeel for a flat beer. Low to no carb.

0.355l bottle. Dark brown body, very thin white head. Lots of yeast particles floating in the glass. Aroma of chocolate, leather, nuts and some bourbon. Taste of chocolate, vanilla, cocoa and bourbon with a balancing grassy and floral hops. Super beer.

Leathery aroma. Pour didn’t produce much head. What I thought was cascading was actually sediment. Not bitter yet not sweet either. Chocolatey but altogether different. This is something you just have to try. Heavy booze only detected in the aroma, bourbony. Finally, I enjoyed it, but it’s not an every day beer.

On tap at the Brewery. Pour is deep brown, almost black with a big frothy tan head and great lacing. Big smoke, leather, somewhat grapey, licorice, anise, light bourbon and toffee aroma. Taste is leather, roasted malt, smoke, light bandaid, dark fruity, and grapey with light heat on the backend. Full mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Really different nice sipper.

Leveejr (109) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 5, 2014
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a dark brown. Not much in aroma. Booze, dark fruits, smoked malt. Tastes of strong smoked malt, definitely get the leather notes, and light chocolatey bitterness. Super complex and excellent beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Finally I get to have a Hair of the Dog brew! It is all that it is cracked up to be. A delicious ale that has a strong smokey finish. Very Baltic Porterish! Excellent!

12 oz bottle shared two ways. From a trade, thanks Aaron. Pours dark dark brown with a small but frothy tan head that quickly fades. Nose has loads of different things going on, smoke, roasted malts, syrup, grains, raisins and some soy sauce. Taste has ash, tar, licorice, raisins, smoke, vanilla, light toffee and sweet roasted malts. Finishes of with a nice warmth from the alcohol.
