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Adam is a recreation of a historic beer-style, originally made in Dortmund, Germany and was the first Beer ever released from this Brewery.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

On tap @ HotD. Pours murky dirt brown, just a hint of head. Aroma is hops, chocolate, and peat. Rich earthy oaky malt flavor with strong chocolate finish followed by mildly bitter hops. Doesn’t taste as big as the abv. This would obviously lend itself to barreling, would love to try some of those.

Aroma: Boozy fruit, and lightly sweet Appearance: No head ?!? Darkbrown, cloudy on the pour Taste: heavy cloying sweetness, lightly bitter Palate: light body, thin oily slick mouthfeel, flat, astringent, finish Overall: An odd, off-beat beer. The lack of head on a vigorous pour hints that something was not quite right with my sample. The aroma and taste was unique and sweet, indeed a desert beer if there ever was one!

On tap at the brewery. Pours a dark brown with light head. Aromas of nutty chocolate and a bit of wet wool. Flavors of leather, smoke and sweet candy.

Great Smokey flavor, very sweet. Good for dessert or after dinner. Zero carbonation and absolutely no head or lacing. Very fruity with a touch of molasses. Great sipping brew.

bottled 5/09. thanks again wes. clear brown ruby with a small beige head. big aroma of a leather jacket and mild smoke with tobacco and hints of ash. flavor is ashy with heavy leather. some earthy dirt and dark fruity notes peek through later. pretty dry with a medium body. the perfect amount of smoked malt.

A very nice beer. Don’t like a lot of smokey beers but this one is well done. Pours a dark brown with reddish highlights. Aromas are smoked meat and hints of apple and dark fruit. Flavors are smoke, bubblegum, roasted malt, and tangy grape finish. Good stuff.

Purchased at Wally’s in Los Angeles, CA; enjoyed while watching True Detective. Appearance is very dark and murky with no head. Aroma is pretty complex, notes of molasses, chocolate, vanilla, dark fruits, definitely like a fruitcake. Taste is real potent, lots of sugar and sweetness, figs, molasses, fruits, raisins, odd mouthfeel, but overall pretty good.

At my place on a Friday at 5:20. Pours milkshake brown with frothy head hat stays. Aroma is caramel earthy hops, musky. Taste is caramel hops, fizzy barleywine, earthy malt. Finish is medium to long and nice, ends kinda clean.

Batch 91. I was really looking forward to this one. Ordered it on line. Can't get HOD beers in Michigan. Maybe, I was expecting too much, but I was quite disappointed. Aroma is nice, but the taste and palate is lacking. Mouthfeel is medium, but with zero carbonation, totally flat. Taste is some dark fruit, but I get a strange, dusty dryness in the throat. Hopefully, Fred is much better. Ordered one if those as well. I think there was something wrong with my bottle of Adam. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours black with a medium light tan head. Aroma is dark dried fruits - almost like fruitcake. After a swirl, molasses and chocolate come out in the aroma. Taste is really smooth with black mission fig and creamy cocoa going to a slightly smokey mid palate. A roasty bitterness creeps in for the finish.
