For someone who has had a good amount of porters and tried most of the best stouts in the world, this offering from Red Hook was disappointing to say the least. The aroma was of faint coffee and the pour was a pathetically small stripe of dark brown. An opaque body saves this brew for being one for the dog bowl. After drinking this watered down porter, my advice to Red Hook is to find another H20 source or use some gypsum!

fromred2green (187) - , Ohio, USA - APR 5, 2009
Bottle. Pours dark brown with an off-white head. Aroma is rather nutty, and malty. Flavor is, for a porter, rather bland. Eh, not bad, but probably won’t buy again.

kuphish (381) - Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA - FEB 23, 2009
Bottle. Average sized, off-white head that diminished fairly quickly. Good lacing and a clear, deep amber brown body. An initial heavy, roasty maltyness accompanied by alcohol. A very slight bit of herbal hop aroma. The flavor consists of toasted and roasty malts with a faint touch of chocolate. A lingering smoky burnt flavor that is not unpleasant. The flavor thankfully does not exhibit any of the alcohol that was present in the aroma. A nice hop bitterness that keeps the beer from tasting too sweet. The mouthfeel is creamy, but light. Average carbonation. In sum, the beer has a nice balance of hop bitterness to malt sweetness and a good, but not very interesting flavor profile. Overall a nice, easy drinking porter, but nothing special.

ilherps (248) - Carbondale, Illinois, USA - JAN 27, 2009
Dark brown, chocolate colored. Flavor is sweet, with toffee and chocolate, and also a bit nutty and toasty. There is also a hint of bitterness on the end. Very drinkable and enjoyable.

bluemooner (657) - East Bethel, Minnesota, USA - JAN 26, 2009
Pours a dark brown color with a thin tan head. Very thin body with some carbonation. Flavor contains hints of chocolate, roasted coffee, and some sweetness. An all right beer nothing special as far as porters go.
