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Adam is a recreation of a historic beer-style, originally made in Dortmund, Germany and was the first Beer ever released from this Brewery.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

Bottle. Pours an opaque dark brown with a thick layer of tan head. Aroma is sweet with boozy hints. Taste is at first overly carbonated but quickly mellows to a booze, chocolate, malty taste.

"a good brew. nose is sweet with a slightly too strong alcohol presence, also apparent in the flavor. sweet, malty, and strong. not balanced enough and just a touch too harsh for me, but i can appreciate that it’s a well made beer. re-rate: 2008 batch sampled 3-09 @Lucky Baldwin’s Delirium Pub. way more smoke in the flavor than last time i had it. still. aroma was malty, peet & chocolate. lots of smoke in flavor, with more chocolate and a drier hoppy finish. better than last time...score adjusted keeps growing on me!

gvmdw7 (188) - California, USA - OCT 9, 2014
Poured pitch black with a cream colored head that lasted for 5 minutes. Smelled of caramel, alcohol, raisins, and chocolate. Tasted of chocolate and smoke. Surprisingly light for a 10% beer. The bottle was over a year old, so the beer was relatively smooth. Definitely want to buy and age some more of these.

12 oz bottle, Batch 72 is 2008 vintage. Pours a clear dark brown with light passing as maroon on the rim of the glass. A thick beige head gradually fades to a creamy wisp and lasting thick edge head that leaves spotty lacing. Aroma is warm and inviting: peated malt, brown sugar, slight spice complexity, wet tobacco sweetness, dark fruits, and an overall pleasant lightly smoked sweet complexity. Flavor is initially smoked malt, with a balanced sweetness that is beyond description. Many different flavors meld seamlessly - toffee, leather, figs and other dark fruits. Alcohol is well masked for 10%. Medium bodied, full carbonation, and sweet complex malty finish.

No idea how old this bottle is but I am getting some slight oxidation in the nose. Brown, slight head. Loads of raisins in the aroma, dried fruits, malts. Very rich and malty. Full bodied. Good stuff

joes (90) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - AUG 30, 2014
(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.

Poured from a bottle. Almost black. No head. Almost no aroma. Overwhelming booze taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
