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Adam is a recreation of a historic beer-style, originally made in Dortmund, Germany and was the first Beer ever released from this Brewery.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

(old rating, ACBF ’12) Very dark brown beer, beige head. Aroma of sweet alcohol, a bit ’ plastic’ (like it came from a plastic jerrycan), resins, cherry and some choclate. Taste: sweet alcohol, a bit like red wine. Licorice, resins, cherry and sweet malts.

Bottle shared by Urabin Coutteau himself. Pours light black with a deep brwon hue, head is dissapearing quickly. A rich roasty and smoky nose. The mouthfeel is medium with a good balance between roastines, bitterness and smokiness. But after a few sips, it all starts to feel a tad watery. Taste is leather, cigars and dark coffee malts.

mansquito (3359) - Nueva York, New York, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Wally’s: LA: Pours near black with a massive bubbly head. Aroma is roast malts, plenty of dark fruit, sugar, bread, kvass, and probably a couple things that I am missing. Taste covers the high amount of booze superbly we’ll. really. This is big ups for that. You get great body in this beer and a taste that is at the same time mellow and complex. That said the beer still makes it’s weight be known. It is rather sweet with a thick and sticky body. Mildly bitter aftertaste. Good stuff.

Pours a dark reddish brown with minimal head. Obtained on tap at the hair of the dog brewery. Unlike the Matt this beer is not overly sweet. Lovely notes in the aroma. Good viscosity, not too much,and goes down smooth. Has a nice pallette and a good kick that reminds you of its alcohol percentage.

Pours a deep dark reddish brown. Aroma.a of coffee and salted pretzels. The taste is bold and sweet up front with notes of chocolate and maple syrup. Turns a bit medicinal in the middle then the bitterness comes through. Thick and smooth mouthfeel with a balanced malt hop profile. Thanks to Brad for Adam.

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