Dogfish Head Hot Hazel


Brewed by Dogfish Head Brewery
Milton, Delaware USA
Style: Porter | Ratings: 2 | Special Seasonal | Alcohol: 7.3%
Hot Hazel is the latest beer to make its way through the ranks of our co-Worker Small Batch Brewing Program we have here at Dogfish. This black-as-night beer was created by the Sales team, who won waayyyyyyy back in January of 2012, but weren’t all gathered back here in Southern DE as a group until the beginning of 2013, when we brewed it here at the pub.

Hot Hazel lies somewhere between a Robust Porter and Foreign Export Stout, brewed with Dried Organic Chipotle peppers, Hazelnuts, and Askinosie Cocoa powder. Huge notes of bittersweet chocolate with hints of burnt sugar, a slight nuttiness, and a burn that is hard to notice at first, but builds as you sip. A perfect tipple for these short Delaware Coast winter days and long, chilly nights.
