COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Doggie Claws has a deep copper color and an intense hop character. I use Simcoe and Amarillo hops along with Organic Pilsner malt, British crystal and dark wild flower honey collected on Mt. Hood. The beer is ready to drink now but will improve with age. Happy Holidays from the curs at Hair of the Dog. - Alan Sprints, Brewmaster

2006 bottle, thanks Jared. Pours a deep amber orange, dark copper if you prefer, with thin off-white head, minimal lacing. Aroma of a nice citrus and herbal hops, very nice malt backbone, caramel, and spices. Flavor matches well, but has a sweetness that starts to take over in my opinion. Maybe with a little more age, this will be just about right, or maybe I prefer younger, I will have to try both!

Zlotta (3811) - Hagen / Düsseldorf, GERMANY - SEP 30, 2017
Sampled from tap at Borefts 2017. Hazy, golden amber with a beige head. Sweetish-malty, slightly fruity aroma of caramel, honey, raisins and vanilla. Rather sweet, malty, a little fruity taste of caramel, honey, vanilla and some raisins, followed by a medium long, moderately bitter, quite warming and a bit boozy finish. Full body, oily mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Nice!
