BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Sea Dog Brewing Company
Maine, United States

Style: American Porter

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.60%

Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

Ok it's one of the best smelling beers I've ever had. It was thinner porter and it for some reason was very carbonated it seemed like (I had a bottle) I am still burping. I wouldn't drink this beer again.

Way too heavy on the hazelnut for my taste.

Pours opaque brown. Overwhelming hazelnut aroma with hints of caramel malt. Less malt on the tongue, representative of an English porter, with a clean finish. Just too much hazelnut!

Bottom line, smells f'in fantastic. My score will probably be higher than average because I am a sucker for anything hazelnut or maple. While very enjoyable, it does not live up to expectations though. A little thin on body, and weaker flavored than I expected.
