Tap @ HotD poured deep amber with a thin head. Warming alcohol, but with a thinner body that made it very drinkable. Oak, brandy spirit notes, brûlée, toffee, and mild oxidation rounded it all out. neepsntatties (2076) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 9, 2015
On tap at HOTD. Colour... Medium orange-amber and hazy with a moderately thick off white head. Nose...quite fruity and somewhat estery with notes of vsnillin and marshmallow. Palate...even more fruit here, with more vanillin and notes of light bodied toffee. The CO2 is light to moderate. The finish is moderately long and somewhat oaky with dark fruit notes. luttonm (6971) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 6, 2015
Draft at HotD. Leathery light brown, nice pretty white head. Lots of vanilla and barrel alcohol, deep fruits. Lighter body for abv. Earthy, cigarette smoke. Lovely lots of brandy. Great.

[2/24/15] Draught at Hair of the Dog in Portland. Hazy amber-brown. Nice aroma of wood, brandy, vanilla, malt, some fruitiness and caramel. Sweet flavor with malt, caramel, brandy, vanilla and wood. Medium-bodied. VastActiv (7749) - Oulu/Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 25, 2015
Tap at Hair of the Dog, Portland. Colour is cloudy brown with small white head. Aromas and flavours: Dry fruits, some sweetness, berries, toffee, hints of licorice and strong malts. Quite special. Sarlacc83 (2437) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 21, 2015
Tap at the brewery.
A: Cloudy, orange-brown, foamy off-white head.
N: Brandy, brown sugar, toffee, some overripe cherry, cola, coriander, light peppercorn, biscuit, licorice, and damp leaves.
T: Big malt sweetness, some light tartness (not infected.)
M: Medium body, biting, fizzy carbonation, no alcohol.
O: Solid barreled lager. Much better than the original, of which I was not much of a fan. The brandy adds to this without subtracting from the base beer (as meh as it was). Worthy of your purchase. douglas88 (9797) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 20, 2015
On tap at hotd. Pours a cloudy reddish color with a large white head. A big vinous fruity nose. A sweet malty base, toffee, fruity esters, vinous brandy. Quite good. Unique.
