I thought this was a pretty decent hoppy dark...certainly wouldn’t call it an english strong. More like (nut not as good as) New Belgium Snow Day. Good hop kick up front and a dark roasty palate with a dry biting finish.

Gription79 (2781) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - DEC 31, 2012
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. There is some toffee/caramel, floral/fruity hops, a green apple peel, and astringent huskiness. I find the astringency and apple notes to be very distracting. Not really into this beer.

cblado (298) - Washington, USA - DEC 29, 2012
12 oz bottle. Pours a rich copper color. After two bottles with vigorous pours, I only got a slight head on it, very little lacing. Aroma is caramel malt, with notes of toast and hay. Some hops aftertaste. Flavor is mild hops up front, with a backside of caramel malt. Palate is a bit thin. Overall a good winter seasonal from Redhook.

Crisp, refreshing, slightly bitter. A hop forward ale - some bitter grapefruit and slight pine, presence of biscuit bread malt. Very pleasant ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nephilium (1616) - Ohio, USA - DEC 21, 2012
Big caramel aroma, with a hint of hops. Pours a clear red with a dusting of off-white head. Mild roasted flavors, with a touch of nuttiness. Light on the palate, and easy to drink. Not too much going on here, there’s a touch of hops in the finish, but nothing really complicated.

UPDATED: MAR 10, 2013 This is a nice take on a winter red ale, dark amber with a milky head. Notes of caramel, citrus, toffee and still rather hoppy too.

NikkTwist (2401) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 15, 2012
Draft at Moriartys. Clear dark copper pour. Large pillowy white head that reduced to lingering foam. Somewhat harsh flavors. Burnt caramel. Artichoke. Dark Christmas spice. Sharp tangelo pith. Bitter hop bite. Black pepper. Some odd bitter notes that feel out of balance. Not a typical winter brew. Bit of a challenge, but that can be a good thing if one is in the mood.

It’s cold and snowy here in SD today so I picked up a six of this at the local market. I’m sitting at the the computer now wondering how it tastes compared to their standard ESB. I should have picked up one of those too. Really quite a nice beer for a cold wintery day. I will buy it again. Thanks Redhook

Iphonephan (5541) - McLean, Virginia, USA - DEC 9, 2012
From a 12 oz bottle at home. Pours a clear reddish brown with a white head. Hints of pine in the nose. Somewhat thin mouthfeel. Roasted malts forward with a slight bitter finish.

Dark Red color. A nice blend of Caramel, Toffee, Grapefruit Hops and Yeasts make the flavor robust and rich. Body is heavy and moderately carbonated and it doesn’t come off quite as well as one would hope. Overall it’s an excellent winter warmer with a nice flavor
