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Adam is a recreation of a historic beer-style, originally made in Dortmund, Germany and was the first Beer ever released from this Brewery.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

The beer pours from the bottle with a near opaque cola brown color and a thin but present beige head. The aroma has a subtly complex and alluring assortment of characteristics ranging from dried figs to old leather, light wood smoke, and a light but noticeable sweetness. The flavor is likewise wonderfully varied, with notes of molasses, raisins, a little licorice, some earthy, almost peppery hops, some alcohol, a pinch of orange peel, pine mulch, dark brown sugar, etc. The texture is dense and mouth-filling, but it doesn’t become syrupy and overwhelming. Overall, this is a rich, exceptionally complex beer.

Received in a trade with CBOK. Thanks! This pours a beautiful extremely dark brown into a snifter. Larger off-white head lasted and laced nicely. The aroma was complex with dark chocolate, malts, raisins, prunes, dark breads, and leather. The taste was just as complex with dark fruits, dark chocolate, cream, caramel, mocha, booze and roasted nuts. Full body, flavorful finish of malts and nuts. Little booze. Very good.

dark brownish/blacl with little head. Aroma of malt and a bit of roast and not much else. Mildly shape carbonation. Good mix of hops and malt with a bit more hops than I was expecting. Nice underlying smokiness. More than subtle but still unobtrusive. No real heat on the finish but there is some spicy bitterness. Smooth for 10%. Nothing mind blowing here but very well executed.

jbruner (2422) - Athens, Georgia, USA - NOV 9, 2014
Bottle thanks to prufrockstar! Pours a hazy brown with fluffy white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma is actually big hop up front, vegetal pine with a big malty backbone. Taste is nicely balanced American strong ale with a great hoppy middle and the alcohol amazingly well hidden. Wow, amazing.

sulawang (634) - British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 6, 2014
Visual: Pours deep dark brown with a fantastic huge foam and lasting head, thick sticky lacing, some micro CO2 activity near the surface. Beautiful. Nose: faint dark caramel malts, hints of chocolate, roastedness, and brown sugar. (lvl-3)-pungency Attack: dense liquid malt sweetness Mid-palate: thick-bodied, creamy-light fizzy mouthfeel, (lvl-8)-sweetness, (MAIN) chocolate, brown sugar/caramel malts, figs, leather Finish: medium booziness, light roasted coffee, persistent malty sweetness, soft hopped bitterness, lingering sweet-bitter finish. Summary: A robust, full-bodied ale with a very dark malty character. Well executed but no unique flavours particularly stood out.

ARH (526) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 21, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 23, 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!

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.
