Adam is a recreation of a historic beer-style, originally made in Dortmund, Germany and was the first Beer ever released from this Brewery.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

Thanks to Matt for this one! Liquide à la robe foncée présentant une mousse plus qu’abondante et collante à mon ballon. Je suis très étonné par ces parfums très floraux et botaniques. Une quantité impressionnante de lavande, de parfums de fleurs séchés de pot-pourri ainsi que de feuilles de houblons me montent au nez, alors qu’une base chocolatée parvient tant bien que mal à se frayer un chemin jusqu’à mes narines bousculées par ce bouquet printanier. Ce n’est pas mal fait du tout,simplement trop floral pour mon plaisir personnel. En bouche le liquide admet une base céréalière beaucoup plus affirmée, ce qui m’aide à trouver la paix en ce jardin fleuri. Un chocolat noir très amer, une base granuleuse bien sèche et croustillante apaisent ces houblons agressifs. Très longue amertume, buvabilité presque nulle, mon deuxième verre fit l’objet d’une longue négociation entre cette bière et moi-même.

neongolden (1286) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 25, 2016
(On tap @ Mikkeller and Friends, Copenhagen, Oct 21 2016) Aroma is toasty with a lot of layers of grain complexity, rye-like notes, faintly burnt and smoky, toffee, lots of dried fruit, sweet and a bit tart, nutty, a hint of chocolate. Flavour, like nose, is complex and built around layered grain character with sweet toffee, slight molasses, toast, nuts, smoke, a range of fruit flavours spanning sweet, tart and even bitter, with a particular spicy fruit I can’t place seeming unique. The finish enhances the toasted, nutty and fairly high bitterness, closing dry with high minerality and very little alcohol. Medium body, lightly carbonated. Like a very atypical barley wine, difficult to describe but very interesting and pleasing to sip.

Wonderfully complex, world-class beer! I’ve had the bottle fresh, after about three months of age, and a six-year old vintage that I drank on-site. The aroma is strong in vanilla, chocolate, dark fruit. The taste follows suit, but also has leather and jerky notes (more pronounced in the vintage bottle) that sounds strange but truly marries well with the other flavors. Very smooth on the palate, with very little carbonation. One of my favorites.

Douberd (5019) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - SEP 29, 2016
(Hair of the Dog Adam) Bottle 355 ml at home, served into a snifter, ABV 10% Dark brown coloured body, mostly bubbles on top instead of foam. Aroma of prunes and dark fruits, molasses, alcohol. The taste is sweet with plums, dried figs, dates, raisins, sugars, alcohol, sherry and some herbal hints. Medium body, soft carbonation. Very good.
