Hell Hound India Black Ale is a dark, brooding brew, melding together two of Black Dog’s favourite styles. The rich smoothness of a dark beer and the crazy hopping regime of an IPA. In folklore, they say if you stare into the eyes of a hell hound three or more times, it bodes a ghastly fate. Not this hell hound, its rich layers of dark malt and huge hit of lip smacking hop bitterness, and aroma, will seal your fate at first glance.
James Booth is the brewer for Black Dog and also the winemaker for Taminick Cellars. He is the fourth generation of Booth winemakers that have owned and operated Taminick Cellars since 1904. His interest in beer developed at 18 when he started brewing with beer kits. It didn’t take long before he began experimenting with recipes before moving on to using all raw ingredients of malted barley and hops.
