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Adam is a recreation of a historic beer-style, originally made in Dortmund, Germany and was the first Beer ever released from this Brewery.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

carlitos99 (184) - The Big Apple, USA - MAR 22, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2005 Carmel melts into hops and keeps going into a mélange of vanilla, anise, cocoa, but it doesn’t stop there, at that point the alcohol taste kicks-in, and then you get that plus effect; cocoa again, and a molasses-like syrup that ends in a brown sugar feeling that warms your heart and then breaks it when you take your last sip.

ARH (465) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 21, 2014
Poured into a sampler stemmed tulip from a tap. Dark fruity aromas of figs and cherries come through on the nose along with chocolate and some smokiness. There’s also slight leather and a light woodiness in there. It pours a near opaque brown red color with a tan, creamy head. A thick ring is retained with a fuzzy surface. It leaves a light, runny and streaky lace. The taste is a medium high sweet and medium bitter. The full body had an oily texture and a soft, fuzzy carbonation. Flavors of chocolate, coffee, dark cherries, and citrus are all preseny with a peppery spice kick at the finish. Dark chocolate and citrus hang around in aftertaste.

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.

haukur (1309) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - SEP 2, 2014
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.

gEUS (1169) - Linden, BELGIUM - AUG 30, 2014
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.
