hopscotch (10557) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 15, 2003
Crystal clear, cherry wood-colored beer. Medium-sized, frothy, khaki-colored head. Excellent, lengthy retention and decent lacing. The aroma is of toasted cashews and milk chocolate. The flavors are of weak coffee, cocoa and hazelnuts. Perfectly-balanced. Light-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Dry, toasty finish with a hint of burnt straw.

djd07 (9521) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 22, 2009
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.

3fourths (9057) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 12, 2004
Sampled at Denver International Airport in a really smoky bar. Deep brown color, typical creamy head from a nitro tap. Creamy texture up front, then a brown-ale like spicyness and a little hop bite in the finish. So cold it makes me shiver... a bit of a gritty texture, some creamy malts and a milk flavor as well. Nose is a light cream with some tobacco, but who can call that one in a smoky bar.
