Bottle. Pours clear reddish brown with a small off white head and limited retention. The aroma is all malt.. some caramel and toffee seem to dominate. The taste is malty but really not much of a defined flavor.. just a mix of sweetness.

P: Clear ruby red body with a small layer of micro bubble head that exits fast. A thin layer of bubble remain on top but most flock to the edges. S: Earthy hops, dirt, pine resin, faint cocoa dust, roasted caramel, molasses and candy malt. Butterscotch and peppery spice. T/M: Follows the nose with a healthy dose of earthy hops , cocoa powder and nice warming sensation. Bittersweet dark chocolate, orange oil and roasted caramel apple peels on the super dry finish. Light-medium prickly mouthfeel. O: Gotta love a hoppy warmer. Intense earthy flavors bordering dirt in the mouth. Pine and hints of fruit compliment the roasty sweet malts. A great treat for winter that I’m eager to try the slightly altered version next year. Cheers!

Red Hook Winter Hook No. 29 (2013) has a medium-to-thick, cream-colored head, a hazy, brown, appearance, and lots of lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet, spicy, yeasty, winter or holiday gift bread, with a hop zing in the background. Taste is of all that, with a somewhat piney bitterness showing up, mid sip. Mouthfeel is medium, and Red Hook Winter Hook No. 29 (2013 version) finishes refreshing, easy drinking, and rather rich. Overall, it works, and I liked it! RJT

TATE (404) - Lubec, Maine, USA - JAN 26, 2014
Bottle. Pours a deep amber with a thick off white head. Aroma is piney. This comes through in the flavor as well, bitterness throughout that lingers. Seems as though I can taste the alcohol even only at 6%. Just okay, the balance seems off for me.

hotstuff (4874) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 22, 2014
Rated on 11-29-2009 (Bottle) This beer forms a medium sized fizzy beige head that mostly diminishes, transparent red with brown tint body, fast rising carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The Aroma is caramel malt, citrus and pine hops. The Taste is lightly bitter, caramel malt, and citrus hops. This is a medium bodied beer. Overall, this is a session beer as it is very easy to drink, has a nice hop presence as it is not overly hoppy tasting which suits me just fine!

Btl pours a beautiful clear brown color, creamy off white head that leaves great lacing but dissipates quickly. Smells of light roasted malt,toffee and floral hops and a hint of chocolate. Tastes of malt,chocolate, a tad bit of toasted bread and hops.Light to medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, dry,bitter finish. Good beer, nice malty taste with a crisp and clean hop flavor. Decent winter offering from redhook.

Draft->mini lager at RFD. Reddish brown with small offwhite head. Toasted malt with a little hops and spices. Very plain and unexciting. Eh.
