Bottle from alexsdad06. Pour opaque black with brown hues. Nose of syrupy malt, caramel and smoke. Taste caramel, toffee, smoky peat with some alcohol on the back end. Definitely hitting the Umami flavor. Interesting complex beer
Pours a dark mahogany brown with a medium sized foamy tan head. Aroma of sweet dark malts, chocolate, and dried fruits. Medium body with lots of creamy lacing. Smooth with a taste of sweet dark malts, cocoa, figs, dates, and a hint of maple syrup. Leaves a nice creamy coating in the mouth for a long lasting lingering aftertaste. Complex flavors that create a very unique experience. Not harsh or bitter. Hides the alcohol very well. Very enjoyable. GTAEgeek (2578) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JAN 25, 2018
12 oz. bottle, shared with Michael. Pours black, with a medium, bubbly, khaki head. The aroma is butter toffee, pipe tobacco, peat, rye, chalk, and raw cocoa. Sweet at first, with a nice, dry, bitter finish. Medium to heavy body, with a chalky, dry mouthfeel. This is a nicely done, dry, malty, and complex beer. Excellent.

September 2017 - Keg at Beavertown Extravaganza. As 'Hair of the Dog Adam'. Great to catch up with this classic. Dark brown, opaque, foamy light brown head. Aroma is raspberry, sugary dates, lots of dates. Body is light and smooth with tingly carbonation. Taste is dates and molasses, chocolate, little spicy, some ash, papery finish with a boozy linger. OK stuff but was expecting more given the high score. (7-4-7-3-15=3.6)

From Oct 2005
Poured into the glass(after I lost some on initial opening) with a huge off-white head, this is some very dark stuff, bordering on black.
The smell has some fruit notes to it but the dominating aroma I get reminds me of antiseptic.
The taste is a real hodgepodge of not so good flavours that is dominated by the antiseptic that I mentioned in the smell followed closely by a bitter-sour attack that leaves my taste buds in total disarray.
This one is not for me. bdleedahl (712) - , Saskatchewan, CANADA - OCT 6, 2017
Nice beer, slightly bitter to me for the style. Tastes as it looks, hazy, but good overall, not as great as the ratings on here. Hair of the dog portland

Very dark brown with lasting head. Aroma has some brown sugar sweetness. Flavour is very malty and has lots of depth. Nice dry finish. Zlotta (4245) - Hagen, GERMANY - SEP 29, 2017
Sampled from tap at Borefts 2017. Clear, dark red with a beige head. Sweetish-malty, slightly fruity aroma of caramel, molasses and raisins. Rather sweet, malty, slightly smoky and a bit fruity taste of caramel, molasses, raisins and smoked ham, followed by a medium long, moderately bitter, slightly roasty and rather smoky and a bit boozy finish. Medium to full body, oily mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Very tasty!
