Brew Info:
  • Brewery: Sea Dog Brewing Company (Portland, Maine)
  • Website:       
  • Brew: Sea Dog Hazelnut Porter
  • Style: American Porter
  • Serving: 12 ounce bottle
  • ABV: 5.6%
  • Pour: It pours a dark Coca-Cola red-brown with a thin, but creamy light mocha head that has great retention with layered and bubbly lacing.
  • Nose: The nose of the Sea Dog Hazelnut Porter is nutty, bready, malty, and earthy.  There are big aromas roasted hazelnut and walnut along with cocoa, hints of light coffee, vanilla bean, fresh cream, marshmallow, hearty bread, and sweet caramel.
  • Taste: The taste follows the nose, although a bit smokier and slightly more astringent.  There are notes of roasted hazelnut, hazelnut syrup, medium-roast coffee, bitter black walnut, hints of vanilla and cream, hints of caramel, and oak. 
  • Mouthfeel: Medium to full-bodied and moderately carbonated, the mouthfeel of the Sea Dog Hazelnut Porter is creamy, smooth, with a woody and bitter finish.
Overall pairing: The good time rock and roll punch of "Another Hair Of The Dog: A Tribute To Nazareth" with a multitalented cast pairs really, really well with the tasty Sea Dog Hazelnut Porter from Sea Dog Brewing Company!  Those bold, earthy, and nutty flavors of the brew work well with the varying vocal and guitar styles and complexity of the songs and musicianship!
