look: 2.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5
Got a few bottles of this from a trade with cavedave. Been wanting to try this beer for quite a while now. Batch 77.
Appearance: Adam pours out a dark brown color with dark mahogany highlights. Head is soapy, and sticks around for a very limited amount of time. Obviously not much carbonation here.
Smell: Leather, tobacco, chocolate, prunes, raisins, figs, and a touch of coffee. Really super and complex on the nose. There is a lot going on.
Taste: Leather, dark fruits, chocolate, and a combination of coffee and tobacco on the back end and finish that turns a touch bitter. Really ridiculous amount of complexity in this beer.
Mouthfeel/Drinkability: This beer is medium bodied with almost no carbonation. It's right on the brink of not having any. Overall this beer is very good. The carbonation or lack thereof in this bottle is definitely too low to make it outstanding, but I would definitely re-review if I got a Adam from a different batch number that is regularly carbonated. The score would be significantly higher, because this is an extremely complex, tasty beer.

3.9/5 rDev -8.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4
Poured into a teku, dark brown and murky, with no head. Smell up front is smoke, a dark fruits, raisins, figs a hint of cherry skin. Getting a lot of smoke in the taste. It's a subdued smoke, not like a rauch or anything, but it's definitely there. Was not expecting it and it overshadows some of the other flavors. No carb issue here. As it warms, some of the dark fruit, caramel, burnt sugar flavor is coming out. Super complex. This might have gone over my head. Worth a try for sure. I'll try some with some age on it, see how that compares.
