Hair of the Dog Blue Dot Double IPA
Grazie mille, Albertoooo! Poured a hazy golden body with a white head. Aroma... dried grapes, citric hoppiness, sweet maltiness reminiscent of crystal. Citric taste, lemon & peach ice-tea mix, sweetish, soft, light tropical touch, very full malty backbone, overly so perhaps, eating up the 80 IBU like they aren’t there. Interesting - really not my type of IPA or Double IPA, but I can respect it. And I’m really glad I’ve tried it!

Bottle at Dangerous bottleshares 20th edition!! Featuring Zakoon and Aaron. This one thanks to Aaron. Pours a hazy, reddish amber with lots of bad chunks and a small, white head. Aroma has lots of caramel, vinous oak, canned peach, cherries. Taste is very sweet. Still lots of oak but not as acidic as expected. Very tasty actually! Sticky body and a fairly low carbonation.

Hair of the Dog Bourbon Fred from the Wood
12 oz bottle shared with Tmoney99 and the MadTree crew. Pours a hazy amber color with a few bubbles. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, caramel, bourbon vanilla, dark fruit, syrupy, I think I like the base beer better, it does hide the abv pretty well but probably because it is so sweet, some wood, hint of chocolate, I still like it.

Hair of the Dog Adam from the Stone
Thanks to Matt for this really good brew! Une robe sombre, couleur noisette, surmontée d’une généreuse mousse qui malheureusement ne tient pas. Quelques dentelles sur mon verre mais sans plus. Nez pleinement satisfaisant de caramel, de mélasse, de sucre brun, d’alcool, de noisette grillée, de tramisu. Présence de malts chauffés et d’un houblon espiègle qui me titille les narines. Saveurs évolutives qui démarrent tout en douceur sur le sucre d’orge et la confiserie. Peu à peu, ces dernières évoluent en libérant un important alcool et surtout, une puissante amertume en fin de bouche qui me paraît interminable. Légèrement capiteuse, cette bière se déguste lentement, à petites gorgées.

It is one of my new favorites - easy to drink with a snappy fruitiness.

Hair of the Dog / De Molen Putin Russian Imperial Stout
Putin 2015 sans aucune bulle. Dommage que ce liquide brun foncé ne montre aucune vie. Anyway, les volutes de bourbon, de chocolat et de noisettes, de vanille, de bois et de caramel sont alléchants. Les saveurs de guimauve enroulées dans la noix de coco et imbibées de bourbon chocolaté finissent par être bien intéressants. Dans la seconde moitié de la dégustation, une apparition de raisins bleus qui ajoutent une couche de complexité. En bouche, un liquide comme une liqueur tranquille qui n’ajoute en rien à l’expérience. En finale, une chaleur qui abonde, assez savoureuse, presque douce, axée sur le bourbon et les malts noirs. Pas si mal mais l’absence de bulles me fatigue énormément. Acceptable pour certains mais inexcusable pour plusieurs. J’appartiens au groupe le plus rebelle.

Hair of the Dog Adam
Pours as dark as a stout. World class head volume, lacing and retention. Outstanding nose of leather, plum, tobacco, fig and chocolate plus subtle molasses and smoky oak. Light full body that is extremely smooth and approaches creamy. Superb carbonation with a bit of effervescence in the middle and a fairly prickly finish. The carbonation / body balance is very well done. The flavor profile is quite outstanding and very complex. The flavors of the nose all deliver but don’t quite separate completely. It begins with the dark fruits over a slightly sweet base with notes of caramel and molasses. The heavier flavors (leather, tobacco) slowly ascend towards a mildly bittered middle then linger in the background. Light smoky oak serves as the transition to the finish with dark fruit again taking center stage. The highest sweetness level appears here as well over a rich wave of chocolate. The slightly dry finish provides a touch of astringency and back of the throat warmth while a rich caramel and chocolate slowly fade.
