COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Redhook Double Black Stout is the only beer of its kind in the world. Making the most of two well-known Northwest products, this extraordinary brew marries the sweet, smoothness of classic stout with the rich complexity of fine coffee. The recipe is a closely guarded secret.

MadMan (495) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 16, 2009
Bottle. Pours pretty much black, with lighter reddish edges and a thin brown head. Aroma is mocha. Flavor is rich and roasty with a decent amount of lightly bitter chocolate and evident coffee. Finish is lightly bitter and offers a lasting coffee flavor. Smooth medium body. A well done coffee stout.

"this reflects a higher grade than i’d ever thought i’d give a Redhook beer, and a lower score than i give most strong stouts. it was just good. nothing special, and there are better beers for the price, or less. the body left a little more to be wanted, and it was a little on the bitter side, and not in the mouth watering hoppy good way."

hotstuff (4236) - Indiana, USA - APR 18, 2014
Rated on 10-30-2011. This bottled beer, Batch 08-0410, pours a small tan head that is fully lasting. This beer has a black opaque body with very little carbonation and spotty lacing. The aroma is malt, chocolate, coffee, and lightly roasted. The flavor is sweet, lightly bitter, malt, coffee, chocolate, roasty, light hops, and a dry finish. The mouthfeel is lightly tingly and this beer is light-medium bodied. This beer has a lingering roasty coffee aftertaste and is a beer for coffee drinkers.

ACHops (736) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 2, 2014
22 oz bottle, probably a year old, served in a tulip glass. Pours dark inky brown with medium thick body and creamy brown head. Aroma is chocolately dark roasted malt and sweet espresso on the finish. Taste is smooth rich roasty malts, mild dark chocoate sweetness, subtle coffee flavor, and sharp spicy hops bring bitter balance to the finish. A really rich tasty brew; belies the fact that it’s only 7%. I think this has been retired for a while now, which is a real shame - shows what Redhook is capable of and is way better that most of what they’re brewing these days.

Flavor is roast malts forward with supporting ash, chocolate, coffee, earthy hops, and light toast; dry finish. Medium body and low carbonation.

brenn79 (1559) - Idaho, USA - MAR 16, 2013
22 oz. bottle- Pours black with a one finger dark tan head that is reducing fairly quickly. Aroma is roasted malts, coffee, and chocolate, could be more assertive. The taste is the same as the aroma, the coffee they used is high grade, good. The body could be fuller, but the carbonation is spot on. Overall this is a good coffee stout, not the best out there, but not bad.

trujahwarrior (509) - Monroe, Washington, USA - JAN 21, 2013
Pours a pitch black color with a fluffy khaki head with light lacing. Smells of chocolate caramel and coffee. Tastes of all the same things I mentioned in the smell with plus vanilla. The coffee comes out more in the flavor. Mouthfeel is light and watery. Overall this is one of the better tasting beers I’ve tried from their blueline series.

thedm (4968) - Fort Wayne, USA - DEC 27, 2012
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a large sized head of foamy finely sized dark brown colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque ruby red brown colored body. The mild aroma was coffee. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and strongly tingly at the finish. The strong flavor contained notes of coffee and brown malt. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.

Prufrockstar (1091) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 14, 2012
Chalky coffee aroma. Chocolate. Cream. Pours black, minimal ring of tan head. Thin mouthfeel. A little metallic. Taste of watered down diner coffee. Chocolate finish. Overall: disappointing like so many cheap diner coffees. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
