New Beer Blog Sea Dog Hazelnut Porter


image

In this beer blog, we are going to get into another beer from Sea Dog Brewery and the beer is called Hazelnut Porter.  If you read my beer blog post from yesterday, you know the history of this brewery.  If you have not read that beer blog post, please, read it to get up to speed on this brewery.  Let us get into the beer.

It has a dark deep brown color without a head on this porter. The smell is a hazelnut to the beer. The taste is hazelnut with a touch of toffee. Toffee is extremely fate. The aftertaste is a dry hazelnut. It is a sipping beer. It is a beer to take your time and relax.

Here is a description from their website (www.seadogbrewing.com):

This beer is one of a kind! Four different malted barleys combine to create a distinctive, full-bodied beer with a roasted nuttiness, uniquely enhanced by a hint of hazelnuts. Smooth and creamy with the nose of the Willamette hop, this porter is a beer style unto itself.

In closing, I have to say when I opened my Beer Of The Month and saw this beer.  I have to be honest.  I was excited and nervous at the same time.  It was in a good way on my feelings before I open the bottle.  I really enjoyed this beer and it is extremely unique to what is on the market.  I love the smell and taste of the hazelnut along with the chocolate.  I recommend this beer.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Metal it!  \m/

Cheers!

In this beer blog, we are going to get into a beer I received from my Beer Of The Month.  The brewery and the beer is called Sea Dog Brewery India Pale Ale.  Sea Dog Brewery was founded in 1992 in the State of Maine.  The brewery was named after a dog called Barney, which is no longer with the brewery.  They brew several different beer styles and have several location around the Portland, Maine area.  Let us get into the beer.

It has a deep copper color with a semi white head on the beer. The smell is a citrus to a little malty to this India Pale Ale. The taste of this full body beer is a carbonation citrus with a sweet dry aftertaste. It is a pretty drinkable IPA.

Here is a description from their website (www.seadogbrewing.com):

OLD EAST INDIA PALE ALE

Fashioned after the famous ales from Burton-On-Trent which took on such bold character after surviving the long, rolling voyage from London to Calcutta in the days of the Empire. This is an amber-colored masterpiece in the world of beer styles.

In closing, there is not too many good English style India Pale Ales on the market.  I know this brewery is in the Chicago Market but I never see their India Pale Ale.  It is pretty balance and well hopped.  I have to say I love the story and history of this brewery.  It is a really cool story.  I wish I could find more of their beer in the Chicago market.  If you are a hophead like me, I recommend you trying this beer and let me know what you think of it.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Metal it!  \m/

Cheers!
