Bottle: Poured a deep dark brown color ale with a large brown foamy head with OK retention with some lacing. Aroma of deep caramelized malt notes with some toffee and light bitter notes. Taste is also dominated by deeply caramelized malt notes with some toffee, very minimal amount of residual sugar and a slightly bitter finish. Body is pretty full for style with good level of carbonation and fait alcohol notes are also perceptible. Enjoyable old ale but I think I prefer the regular or barrel-aged version.

Adam from the stone 2015

Enjoyed with 3 years of age on it.

Review two thousand!

I poured this into my favorite teku.

This pours the color of cola-coffee topped by a tan cap of foam. Impressive staying power, with a deep cloud that lingers for a while releasing all sorts of wonderful aromas. First the raisin and stone fruits hit the nose, with a touch of dark chocolate and just a wisp of smoke. There's a hint of what I'd call Belgian chocolate backing this, a nice lightly estery note. I get more of the floral notes mixed with chocolate nibs and some raisin and stone fruits as I sip. Some tobacco and leather linger in the shadows, emerging as it opens. It's smooth and rounded with a pronounced roasty finish that brings everything into focus. At three years of age this is tasting wonderful.

This will be short...

All the components of Adam with the addition of a mineral water like contribution, slightly more bitter, metallic, and crisper.

Delicious, but I think I prefer the original to this. Cheers.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a snifter. Allowed to warm for a half hour.

Pours a muddy brown body with a big three finger frothy tan head that reduces slowly to leave nice lacing and great retention.

Aromas seem a little muted.. not getting much here except light caramel and toffee. On the tongue it's a different story, lots of flavor here. Sweet caramel, brown sugar, dark fruits, a little metallic on the follow through. Bitter aftertaste and roasty finish. Medium body and medium carbonation.

Solid beer, good experience. The bitterness on the finish is a little cloying.

- 2016 vintage
- 12oz. bottle poured into Lost Abbey Teku on 10-Apr-16

Interesting variant of the Adam base beer. I don't think I prefer this over the original, but I enjoyed the unique twist on the classic. I didn't experience any carbo issues that I've heard others had. The mouthfeel was what stood out the most.

NOTE: I paired this with some 10-year-old sharp cheddar. Both were great when standing alone, but when paired it created this really off-putting taste. I'll bet the mineral characteristic of the beer has something to do with it.

2015 vintage.

Pours an opaque super dark brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Thick rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of toasted malt, smoked malt, caramel, toffee, candied dark fruit, tobacco, earth, and mineral aromas. Taste is much the same with tobacco, campfire smoke, caramel, toffee, earth, char, and mineral flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of bitterness and an alcohol kick on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with a subtle mineral presence that might be coming from the concrete egg this was aged in.

Serving type: bottle.

Pours dark brown with hints of read, nearly opaque. Two plus fingers of medium tan head, excellent retention and tons of lacing. Outstanding.

Smell is rich and sweet, but has a slight sharpness (alcohol?). Dark fruits, but with acrid overtones.

Taste is much like the smell, but I get more of that sharpness. Underneath it I can pick up delicious flavors, but I have to fight my way through things I don't like. Again, I think it's the alcohol, but I've had plenty of beers this strong where that element was not dominant.

Feel is quite good. Thick and chewy, but with vibrant carbonation. Nice.

A decent beer. Biggest downside is that the ABV is front and center, rather than being covered by flavors.
