YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - DEC 18, 2003
Not something I'd return to. Appearance was fine with a deep, copper color and an off-white head. The aroma was touched with sweet and flowery notes. The flavor was alternately sweet and bitter.

Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - DEC 17, 2003
2003 bottle. Nice malt base with hoppy grapefruit-resin flavors. Better than expected, my favorite Redhook product.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - DEC 15, 2003
2002 bottle. Poured a slightly dark amber color, cream color head. Some dark malt with some tangy hops. Light to medium mouthfeel. Lacking.

urbnhautebourg (997) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - DEC 14, 2003
This is pretty easy drinking. Nothing at all exciting, but some nice hop flavor peeping from under the dark malt flavors. Not bad, not great.

brownaler (378) - Topsail Beach, North Carolina, USA - DEC 13, 2003
I've been hearing that they have redone the formula this year and found the beer a nice surpise for Redhook. Though I thought the beer was still lacking something.

clvand0 (350) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - DEC 12, 2003
This beer pours a dark shade of brown with a nice head and leaves some lacing on the glass. The aroma was malty with caramel and some spice. The flavor reminded me a lot of Anchor Steam, with just a little more strength in the flavor. Malty and hoppy, with caramel and spices. Good winter beer.

Wakie (612) - Centreville, Virginia, USA - DEC 9, 2003
A basic, fairly boring ale. Heavy hop flavoring that was most empty of anything else left me thoroughly dissatisfied. Addendum: One winterhook = one heavy hangover. Normally I'm immune to these, but man ... this one is bad. I'll never touch one of these again.

hopscotch (9487) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 8, 2003
Sparkling clear, burnt orange/ruby ale. Cheap aftershave and vineous notes within the nose and flavor along with toffee and leathery, citrusy and evergreen hops. Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Short, thin, lightly bitter finish.

I.C.suds (189) - Da U.P. eh?, Michigan, USA - DEC 8, 2003
Dark amber with a frothy but short lived light tan head. Spicy hop aroma. No chance to identify the malt- overly hopped- Resiny aftertaste reminds me of doing bong hits in college back in '75.

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - DEC 7, 2003
Nice reddish-brown color. Decent white billowy head. Aroma is rich with hops. Bitter and dry in the initial taste. Medium bodied flavor, mellow for a winter beer. Still not too bad for the 2003 version.
