If you love Starbucks coffee, you will love this beer. It has a nutty middle and an expresso kind of bitterness.

I went to the brewhouse in Woodinville, WA about 6 months ago. They happened to have this as one of the 2 cask conditioned brews. Served at a pleasant temperature (not cold), this brew was just tremendous! I have yet to try in the bottle so my rating is probably not accurate. But, if you happen to be in the NW, check out Red Hook in Woodinville to see what they have on CASK!

Not the best porter Iíve tasted, redhook has a flair for the ambers, esbís and ipaís, but for the porters and stouts they just seem to be on the overly bitter side

Bottle. This is a poor example of a porter. Something about the aroma was very unsettling. There was a distinct hint of damp soil and rotting leaves, neither of which was pleasant. The flavor was lacking, with a completely bland watery finish. Iíd steer people away from this one.

Poured Very dark with a very thin, quickly fading head. Left almost no lacing on the galss. Very weak aroma, nothing really appealing to the nose. Thin in the mouth. Decent Finish but overall very disappointing.

Pours black with a thick cream head. Smells strongly of chocolate and coffee. Mmm. Mouthfeel is slightly watery, but reasonable. Strong mocha-ish taste, bitter. A pretty standard porter, by all accounts.

Had a pint at the Redhook Brewery. A standard porter in color and taste, dark brown and medium, but was disappointed especially in the head: very thin, weak khaki. All in all, I thought it fell somewhat short of what a good porter should be.

good head and palatable though somewhat chocolate undertones. little aroma smooth feel with some bitter aftertaste. affordable but could be a little thicker

enjoying this beer right now actually. its a little overburnt in the aftertaste, but its very good with good aromas and different blends of coffee and rich bitter chocolate.
