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Adam is a recreation of a historic beer-style, originally made in Dortmund, Germany and was the first Beer ever released from this Brewery.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

Adam pours a dark, deep brown that is almost black with a pillowy, thick, beige head. The head grasps onto the sides of the glass leaving these sudlike formations that attempt to crawl up the side and escape. The first smell is very dark and mysterious, with chewy dark fruits, chocolate, dark caramels, and almost a slight hint of blackstrap molasses. There was a bit of rusty metal at first, but it was pretty volatile and dissipated quickly. The taste is outrageously complex, with raisins, chocolate, prunes, and tobacco. It’s sweet, but not cloying and the rich mouthfeel of this beer really helps balance out the high alcohol on it. After you swallow, the slightest bit of earthy, piney hops linger with traces of roast. Magnificent.

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.

Fritz123 (1123) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - NOV 27, 2014
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.

jbruner (2502) - Athens, Georgia, USA - NOV 9, 2014
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.

sulawang (644) - British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 6, 2014
Visual: Pours deep dark brown with a fantastic huge foam and lasting head, thick sticky lacing, some micro CO2 activity near the surface. Beautiful. Nose: faint dark caramel malts, hints of chocolate, roastedness, and brown sugar. (lvl-3)-pungency Attack: dense liquid malt sweetness Mid-palate: thick-bodied, creamy-light fizzy mouthfeel, (lvl-8)-sweetness, (MAIN) chocolate, brown sugar/caramel malts, figs, leather Finish: medium booziness, light roasted coffee, persistent malty sweetness, soft hopped bitterness, lingering sweet-bitter finish. Summary: A robust, full-bodied ale with a very dark malty character. Well executed but no unique flavours particularly stood out.

ARH (563) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 21, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 23, 2014 Poured into a sampler stemmed tulip from a tap. Dark fruity aromas of figs and cherries come through on the nose along with chocolate and some smokiness. There’s also slight leather and a light woodiness in there. It pours a near opaque brown red color with a tan, creamy head. A thick ring is retained with a fuzzy surface. It leaves a light, runny and streaky lace. The taste is a medium high sweet and medium bitter. The full body had an oily texture and a soft, fuzzy carbonation. Flavors of chocolate, coffee, dark cherries, and citrus are all preseny with a peppery spice kick at the finish. Dark chocolate and citrus hang around in aftertaste.
