Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a snifter, muddy, black pour,slight white head. The aroma has smoke, leather and booze, with caramel and tobacco undertones. Taste as wonderful as it smells. A great beer! It is a well carbonated sipper. I am definitely going to have to revisit this one.

Dark colored brown, almost black, but the voluminous and quick -forming head set this beer apart from other old ales I've had. Must be the bottle conditioning.

Great aroma of smoke, figs, tobacco, leather. Really nice.

This beer really stands out due to its higher carbonation. It really helps the drinkability, keeping it from being too syrupy or heavy. Big malt flavors with a great combo of that fruit, fig, smoke, tobacco goodness found in the aroma. The finish really works, making me come back for more sober than I otherwise would with an old ale. Big, fluffy/bubbly texture.

Really impressed with my first HotD brew. Adam is easily the best old ale I've had. Will be seeking out more beers by this brewery.
