Tap @ Borefts Beer Festival 2015. Pours black. Aroma is peaty, smokey, malty, chocolate. Taste is about the same, campfire ashy notes, chocolate, smoke, peat. Ugh. I’ll never like something this smoky.

Tap @ Borefts 2015. Black. believed to be matured for 3 years on Ardberg barrels. I’m not surprised. Quite dominant peat. Sweet, full bodied. Initial malt and raisin, with dominant peat and toffee in the aftertaste. World class.

Sampled @ Borefts 2015. Opaque black color, small off-white to beige head. Smell and taste malts, very peaty, band aid, iodine, alcohol, bitter. Another heavy beer from hair of the dog. All drinkable, but not something I really want to drink a full bottle of.

Tap at Borefts ’15. Pours dark brown with a small beige head. Aroma of roast, dark chocolate, big peat, oak barrel, toffee and caramel. Flavour is light heavy sweet and light moderate bitter. Medium to full bodied with alcoholic warmth in the palate and soft carbonation.

At Borefts. Medium thick, pale yellow beige head over a very dark misty bronze coloured beer. Aroma very peaty, iodine, smoked wood, whisky, caramel, hazelnuts; complexely sweetish in onset, full oily mouthfeel, thick caramelly and lightly chocolatey maltiness, warming whisky-like alcohol in the finish with drying woodiness, with strong retronasal ’peatiness’. Too peaty for my taste, dominating too much and thereby drowning the finesse and full complexity of the Adam itself.

@Borefts 2015, van tap, donker bruin tot zwart nagenoeg kraagloos. Aroma van een enorme turf en alcoholcombinatie met verder wat overrijp fruit. Smaken zijn evenzo turf en alcoholisch, zoet, vanille, donker overrijp fruit, mout, hout, zoet, zo dit is een stevige jongen zeg.. --- Beer merged from original tick of Adam from the Wood (Single Malt Scotch) on 25 May 2018 at 15:45 - Score: 8

On tap at Borefts 2015. Clear, dark brownish red with a tan, creamy head. Sweetish-malty aroma of peat, tar, prunes, coffee, whiskey, molasses. Sweet-malty taste following the nose. Long, peaty finish. Full body, oily mouthfeel, flat carbonation. Great.
