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Adam is a recreation of a historic beer-style, originally made in Dortmund, Germany and was the first Beer ever released from this Brewery.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

superspak (3988) - Michigan, USA - FEB 1, 2013
12 ounce bottle into snifter; Batch 77, bottled 8/13/2009. Pours cloudy almost opaque dark reddish brown color with a small light khaki head with poor retention, that reduces to a thin lacing cap that lasts. Minimal spotty lacing, and some nice alcohol legs as well. Aromas of huge raisin, prune, fig, molasses, toffee, caramel, chocolate, toast, dark bread, leather, tobacco, earth, wood, and herbal earthiness. Insanely complex and balanced aromas with big strength; Wow. Taste of big raisin, fig, molasses, toast, toffee, prune, leather, tobacco, chocolate, roasted malt, dark bread, light char, earth, wood, and herbal earthiness. No bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark fruits, molasses, toast, toffee, caramel, chocolate, dark bread, leather, tobacco, earth, wood, light char, and herbal earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible flavor balance with huge complexity of malty notes; with zero cloying flavors present after the finish. Light carbonation and very full bodied; with a very slick, creamy, and lightly syrupy mouthfeel that is incredible. Alcohol is insanely well hidden with almost zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a world class old ale! Huge complexity and balance of malty flavors; and dangerously smooth to sip on. This blew me away, wow.

bulldogops (1681) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 2, 2016
Rating #1619 - #CBC2015 Beer #4 - Welcome Reception - Pours a dark reddish brown color. thin head. Unreal aroma of ripened berries, roasted plums,chocolate, caramel. Lots of smoked malt character present, tempered with a spiciness (coriander, clove, nutmeg?). Blown away, this rivals a fine single malt in depth of character and complexity.

2003 (batch 57) drank in 2015. Dark brown mahogany color. No head. Caramel, plums, port, slightly smokey and Vegemite. The carbonation is very low. The mouth is surprisingly smokey with some oxidized notes, port and caramel. Lingering port and caramel finish. Aged amazingly. Fantastic.

mariuspoenari (430) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 14, 2015
Dark, opaque brew, with a small tan head that dissipates quickly - looks a bit like a really dark Belgian quad. Smells metallic, caramel sweet, figs, raisins, spices. The taste follows on the same notes, figs, dark chocolate, raisins, brown sugar, spices and alcohol. Very smooth mouthfeel with a small but noticeable level of carbonation. Warm aftertaste.

Kind of smokey woody smell. Taste is pretty much the same. Low carbonation, full body, and no foam.
