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Adam is a recreation of a historic beer-style, originally made in Dortmund, Germany and was the first Beer ever released from this Brewery.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

Just as they say: Chocolate, smoke, and leather. Just as complex as a good scotch. Sweet, but not cloying; smokey, but not overpowering. The Rauch Malt really comes through; notes of a good Berliner Weiss but not sour or dry. A well balance, high SG beer that is delicately flavored and intense. One of the best beers I’ve ever tasted.

On tap at the Brewery. Pour is deep brown, almost black with a big frothy tan head and great lacing. Big smoke, leather, somewhat grapey, licorice, anise, light bourbon and toffee aroma. Taste is leather, roasted malt, smoke, light bandaid, dark fruity, and grapey with light heat on the backend. Full mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Really different nice sipper.

Leveejr (77) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 5, 2014
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a dark brown. Not much in aroma. Booze, dark fruits, smoked malt. Tastes of strong smoked malt, definitely get the leather notes, and light chocolatey bitterness. Super complex and excellent beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Finally I get to have a Hair of the Dog brew! It is all that it is cracked up to be. A delicious ale that has a strong smokey finish. Very Baltic Porterish! Excellent!

bursprak (400) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUN 15, 2014
12 oz bottle shared two ways. From a trade, thanks Aaron. Pours dark dark brown with a small but frothy tan head that quickly fades. Nose has loads of different things going on, smoke, roasted malts, syrup, grains, raisins and some soy sauce. Taste has ash, tar, licorice, raisins, smoke, vanilla, light toffee and sweet roasted malts. Finishes of with a nice warmth from the alcohol.

Clownoisseur (199) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - MAY 29, 2014
Batch #87, 2012 vintage bottle. Pours a deep brown, mahogany hue, small beige head. Aromas of big molasses, smoke, leather, tobacco. Taste is incredibly smooth. Chocolate, caramel, toffee meld into dark fruit, leather and loads of oat. Such a unique beer. Has elements of spice and alcohol but both well-hidden among the harmony of flavor. Finishes pretty clean, leaving the palate wanting more.

kathouse (916) - Nevada, USA - MAY 19, 2014
Pours dark brown and murky. Thick creamy foam radiates aromas of toffee, toasted malts, and ruby red fruits. Dark brown sugar flavors, smoke, prunes. Good body and rich mouthfeel finishes slightly fruity with notes of pure cocoa. A decadent beer.

I got this in a trade and decided to open this up tonight. I see that this is batch 91. I poured this into a snifter. The appearance is a nice dark brown color perhaps close to black. The head is a good two and a half fingers of white foaminess. There is a decent amount of adequate foamy lacing spider webbing all over the place. The smell has a hearty roasty meatiness up front with a decent sweet sticky chocolate coming in behind. The taste was fairly balanced between the meatiness and the chocolate. The aftertaste is somewhat a good balance between the meatiness and the chocolate. The finish is quick and dry. On the palate, it sits about a medium with not too much of any sessionability about this. I’m finding this one to be more of a sipper. Do I feel the ABV? Perhaps. The carbonation is exceptionally smooth, whoah, wow, very smooth. Overall, ok, this is a wonderful representation of the Old Ale style, big wow from me. Though very different from my all time favorite of this style, I still like this one a lot and would definitely have it again. So glad I finally had the opportunity to try it.
