2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours almost black, no light to be seen. No head at all. A bit of a light roast aroma. Surprising fizzy mouthfeel. Not special, I expected more.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a slick jet black with very little viscosity. Thin head disappears quickly. Minimal aromas of roast with hints of coffee. A well-attenuated and fairly dry finishing robust porter. Nothing stands out or is too exciting about this one.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice start and middle; very flavorful, but the end leaves something to be desired, a bit too clean.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, Honolulu. Carmel and chocolate aroma. Very dark amber but can still see light through the beer. I like this porter, it is a good tasting beer that is not too heavy. Good on price and taste.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
on Nitro at the Barley pub, Dark brown pour with beige head. aroma is some roast and some cocoa/coffee. a touch of dark fruit as well. Mouthfeel is a bit thin but the flavor is decent, though not striking, some coffee bean and milk chocolate followed by some roast at the finish. Not to bad, very drinkable, but ordinary.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft from a nitro tap. Pours a very deep brown with a creamy, light tan head. Light roasted notes with a little earth in the nose. Very low carbonation with a medium, creamy, yet slightly dry mouthfeel. Roasted malt, earth, mineral, and some wood on the palate. Medium finish. I would have liked a little more flavor out of this one.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a dark ruby brown with a medium cremy light tan head that diminishes quickly leaving behind decent lacing on the glass. The aroma is a fruity malt with raisin and light roast. Thin mouthfeel with a bitter taste with light coffee and chocolate. Easy to drink, a good porter from Redhook.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from 3 Sons. Nice version, with a little smoke, some caramel and nuts if just a little too much carbonation. Deep brown , no lacing and not much head.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. A dark reddish brown color pour with a short offwhite head,medium carbonation. Aroma of coffee,rasins , and light chocolate with hints of roast.
Flavor is roasty,with some chocolate and a bit of coffee , maybe a hint of hops . Thin body with a slightly oily mouthfeel , very sessionable . I find this to be one of the better offerings Iíve had from Redhook but as Porter goes itís nothing I would deem as special.
