Indra (2663) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - FEB 18, 2002
Smoky aroma, which translates to an interesting burnt note on the tongue. Not a bad porter, but a little more thin than I usually like mine. This could maybe be a function of original gravity being lower than I like? Either way, there some nice chocolate flavors as well, and the finish is pretty smooth. Good as in above average.

Not a beer I will drive out of my way to obtain, but the Blackhook should be one of Redhook’s frontliners! It’s dark stout color rewards you with a clean, hoppy, rich winter-beer flavour. I prefer Widmer Brother’s Winter Nakt, but the Blackhook has a nice dry flavour that is palatable pint after pint.

BillKismet (3360) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 21, 2002
Faint roasted malt and coffee aroma in this black amber colored porter. This porter has a robust roasted malt presence with a little more than necessary bitter dryness left on the palate. Overall, quite a solid and drinkable porter.

Delbomber (387) - Philadelphia, USA - NOV 30, 2001
Bold coffee and hops aroma, accented by cinnamon, with a black, opaque body and thin head. Disappointingly watery, the dumbed-down flavor is predominantly black coffee, perhaps some powedered sugar and cinnamon. Aftertaste includes a lingering bitteriness on the back of the tongue with a hint of vanilla.

fishman (350) - Philadelphia, USA - NOV 29, 2001
Dark, dark brown, almost black. Roasty/malty aroma with complimenting flavor. Much lighter mouthfeel than it looked like it would have. Overall quite good, roasty taste with some coffee undertones.

THE BEER BARON (275) - Wisconsin, USA - NOV 20, 2001
Very good. I love dark, chocolaty beers and this beer fits nice into those two areas.

Admiral (524) - Schnecksville, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 14, 2001
A good solid porter, not too hoppy for the style like a lot of NW ales.

I once smuggled a couple of these into school they were so good. If you like getting good head, buy this one. Very full-bodied, drink one with a big hunk of meat.

Dawghouse Brewers99 (91) - Exeter, California, USA - NOV 3, 2001
Creamy beige head leaves a nice lacing on the glass. Roasted chocolate Malt flavor balanced with hops. Perhaps not enough cholate malt and too much hopping. I was hoping to taste more of a chocolate malt character.
