BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Hair Of The Dog Brewing Company / Brewery And Tasting Room
Oregon, United States
hairofthedog.com

Style: Old Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 12.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our Adam aged in American Oak barrels. First released in 2000, and released again in November 2011 in 12oz bottles. This 12% beer has lots of the typical HOTD aromas: Caramel, brown sugar, tons of raisin and tobacco. Fig, date, and plum fruitiness in that order. This has a fairly strong earthy vinousness as well as oak vanilla.

2015 vintage (bourbon) drank on 12/26/2016. No head whatsoever, similar to the other HOTDs, which I always find enjoyable. boozy caramelly bourbon on the smell and nose. Not super thick, but definitely right on point for an Old Ale. Very well done beer here that I am happy to have finally gotten to enjoy

Appearance- The beer poured a deep murky brown color with mocha bubbles clinging to the sides of the glass.

Smell - The nose is that of magnificent sweet dark fruits with a hint of booze.

Taste - I detect prunes, nuts, caramel, raisins, and a slight vanilla presence with the wood coming through at the end. The overall profile is like that of a port.

Mouthfeel- Even with little carbonation, this still seems a bit thin.

Overall - I wanted this one forba long time. It was worth the wait.
