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.
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
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/
