Adam is a recreation of a historic beer-style, originally made in Dortmund, Germany and was the first Beer ever released from this Brewery.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

UPDATED: DEC 13, 2013 Bottle: thanks, Kevin! Deep ruby red and mahogany, almost appearing black at times. A tan head slowly plumes and cascades upwards like a nitro tap, lasting forever and leaving nice lace behind. Aroma is classic HotD, some dark fruit sweetness, prunes and figs and raisins, with hot leather, tobacco, light wood, and a touch of menacing black licorice. Light peat and smoke lie in the background as well. Taste is creamy smooth sweet smoke, leather, damped figs and prunes, light alcohol, a touch of sherry-like oxidation, and some more finishing anise sweetness. Very complex and very tasty - this is a top notch brew in every aspect. The only HotD I may prefer to this one is Matt.

Wow. Chocolate that rounds out to smoky. I like the transition on the palate. This is 10%? Tried at tasting room. Solid.

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!

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
