The label on this bottle actually reads bottled just in case I was confused about what I was about to drink from. Hmm. It pours deep clear chestnut and has a thin tan head. The aroma is semi sweet roasted malts with a faint, very faint, burnt maltiness. Much like the aroma the taste seems semi sweet roasted malts to a hint of sweet molasses. A faint burnt malt note tries to cut into the sweeter notes and becomes a rather softened burntness. So that standard Porter flavor of burnt Black Patent type malts comes up somewhat short. It does try to make a feeble attempt to re-surface in the after taste but seems to be a faint echo of what could have been.

On tap for growler fills at Half Time. Pours a thin black to brown, caramel soda sort of color. Empty malt, light roast and toast, caramel. Low carbonation, thin and roasty. Coffee and roast. Dull and lackluster. Long sad toast and roast finish.

Agian, like the IPA, there wasn't a whole lot going on. Grainy malts once again, with a slightly roasted finish, a bit thin and boring, no length on the finish (Cask- GBBF 03')

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours black with ruby edges. Head is unimpressive with a little lacing. Aroma is light but has detectable caramel malt and chocolate, some cardboard. Flavor is slightly metallic and roasted. Finishes slightly smoky but watery. Overall this is a light porter with nothing exciting but nothing dissapointing, unusal for redhook.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Like many of their beers I feel this is rather generic. Light roasted malt with a touch of dark malty sweetness. Decent carbonation. Not overly robust, just well intentioned and drinkable.
