Pours with average head leaving a lot of lacing on the glass. Dark red almost brown color. Light brown sugar smell. Awfully watery when it hit my mouth, and didn't taste much other than carbonation. Finishes dry. Nothing exciting to see here, but not overly offensive either.

UPDATED: NOV 26, 2003 {2003 update: Very similar to the 2002, but fresher. More pronounced hop aroma and no trace of the vinegar in the finish. Delightful and I've updated my ratings accordingly.} 2002 Bottling. Poured dark reddish-amber with minimal off-white head. Aroma is smokey malts, a little spice, wood and grassy hops. Flavor has a nice malt base balanced with generous hops, there is a slight vinegar flavor in the finish that's a little distracting from the otherwise nice taste. Medium body and creamy carbonation. One of Redhook's better offerings.

UPDATED: NOV 11, 2005 very dark brown/almond colored with a sharp bitter bite at first then after a few sips this hop infested brew tastes great..very good..

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - SEP 9, 2003
A nice bark (fir) colored ruby. Head is creamy at first but does dissipate quickly. Appears like a well aged beer. This was the 2002 bottle. Aroma is full of pine and raisin, light hops and sweet caramel malt. Flavor is semi-sweet but the aging has done wonders for this one. It is smooth and mild, like a session strong ale. This was a surprise beer, I found it in a store hidden from view a year after release covered in dust!

Interesting taste, but not that good. Somewhat fruity...not expected in a beer this dark.

I'm not sure what they were trying for with this one. It smelled a bit like a barleywine and vaguely tasted like one. But I didn't really enjoy it.

The last of a sixer, but the first time drinking it while a member of RateBeer. I truly enjoy this beer. Balanced, complex yet no part of it is aggressive. It's hoppy, spicy, and earthy nature makes it a great nightcap to an evening of good beer, good food, and good friends. Still when I see the Redhook label, it first thing to come to mind is A-B.

I enjoyed this beer greatly even though I tried it in late July. The taste was very well balanced and I will have to pick up some more this upcoming winter.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - JUN 23, 2003
I really enjoyed the 2002 version of this. Brownish-red color with a short lived head. Smells of hops and spices. Refreshingly splashes the tongue with crisp hop flavors, late-harvest fruits, and well pronounced clove, pumpkin spice and allspice flavors. Detectable bitterness and subdued spiciness make up the after palate. One of my winter favorites. I cant wait to purchase a 2003 6-pack and watch a NFL Sunday double-header.
