COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dark, smooth and goes down easy.
A smooth and creamy brew that is loosely modeled after Australian and sweeter styled stouts, brewed with plenty of specialty malts, this stout is dark in color with a rich and decadent taste.

Bottle:   Nearly black, moderate sand colored frothy head, sparce lacing.   Soft roasted malt nose, a little lactose, a touch of cold coffee.   Soft roasted malts on the tongue, minor sweetness, a little lactose, little hops.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Seems somewhat smooth, but its nothing out of the ordinary.   Not sure whats so "Foreign" about this considering its not as sweet as others.   Seems like a regular type stout to me, and perhaps even a little bit of a sweet stout.   What really surprises me is the lack of rates for this beer.   Decent, but very much average.

Somewhat of a cross between a Foreign Export style stout and a Sweet stout, Redhook again attempts a somewhat crossover beer for it’s Blueline series. Pours a medium black, some brown shades shine through...with an off-tan head. Has a distinct sweet bubble gum aroma followed up by light cocoa powder and a sasparilla-like spice, no distinct hop aromas are present. Immediately it has a slight artificial sweetener type flavor, metallic, some cocoa, some coffee, roast, but all are dominated by an overwhelming sweetness. The medium body finishes out with a lot of carbonation. The lingering aftertaste reminds me of saccharine and alkali sugars. It was pleasant after the first two sips, but the remaining leaves much to be wanted. An unbalanced beer and I am strongly considering dumping the rest of it. I really wish I could agree with BrewDad (review below), but I just don’t care for it.
