This beer is no longer being produced by the brewery.
Heartbreaking news this week. Hair of the Dog will close this summer. Huge blow to craft beer on this planet. Can't wait to visit before they close forever. This version of Adam has aged fantastically. The smokey leather is there but faded, amazing depth.
I believe that Adam Batch 95 is a 2016 bottle? With the passage of time, the old school musty leather, smoke, and anise flavors are dialed up relative to the sweeter malty notes. A little oxidation, but it's holding up nicely.
A perfect day deserves a (nearly) perfect bottle conditioned beer that betters with age. It’s no Adam Batch #78 (missing nuttiness) but it is stellar. Wonderful dark fruit nose, leather and tobacco on the palate. Ultra smooth for 10%.
