Adam is a recreation of a historic beer-style, originally made in Dortmund, Germany and was the first Beer ever released from this Brewery.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

I was really stoned when i tried this one so i don’t know how reliable my description is. It had a big earthy smell and tasted slightly like coffee with a shot of burbon in it.

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.

Batch 48 poured in a Scotch Silly glass. Pours brown with small head and lace. Aroma rich malts, caramel. Medium carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of rich malts, caramel, chocolate, prunes, herbs, earthy and wood notes, raisins. Overall rich, full bodied, complex and tasty. Has held up rather well with age.

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.

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.
