Sea Dog Riverdriver Porter

I was a bit concerned when I read “natural hazelnut flavor added”, and saw Pugsley Brewing Co., but things worked out.  Sea Dog Riverdriver Porter pours with a very big head, too much so.  I could only get half the 12 oz. bottle in an imperial pint glass before I had to wait for the head to recede.  It was dark brown and almost opaque, and as I said, super carbonated.  The bouquet was nutty, hazel nutty, with coffee notes.  A tad bitter at first, with more coffee.  It retained the head well.  I’ll have to give this medium-bodied and very drinkable porter

Did not notice any dog notes in this one.
