garrison (773) - Cin. city, Ohio, USA - NOV 22, 2005
From a bottle - it pours a dark mahogany=hued beer with a light tan, fine-cuccled head of foam and a spicey aroma. Tastewise, this was a much better beer than I expected, and its flavor was retsina-like, with a cypress overtone from the aggresive hopping.

nearbeer (3722) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 21, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2009 12 oz, bottled 10-01-08. Clear, ruby-copper with a lasting quarter inch of foam that leaves nice lace behind. Aroma of tea leaf and molasses. Flavor is molasses, toasty nut, tea leaf, and light chocolate-orange with a finish of citrus and toasted oak. Medium body is smooth, lightly carbonated and dryish. Excellent example of the style, and tastier than many English Ales. Best I have had from this brewery.

bottle- found this much better than I was expecting- a very nice pleasant pine/earthy hop flavor that dominated the advertised toasted notes. Very nice and drinkable.

cking (1175) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - JAN 27, 2009
Winter 2008: Very nice seasonal, this beer is impressive. Burgundy in color with a billowing, fluffy tan head that sticks around. The sides of the glass are strewn with thick layers of lacing. A strong carbonation can be seen through the body of the beer. Thin malty aroma with notes of toffee, mild chocolate and yeast. It smells as if this is generously dry hopped due to the fruity hop aromas. Good balance, but it drinks a touch too thin. Malt and hops are well proportioned. Lots of hearty malt flavors. Cereal, toast, chocolate, and coffee are stuffed inside of a lightly evergreen mildly citrus hop taste. Bargain winter seasonal that is crafted well above it’s price tag considering the competition. Aside from a light body I found this most enjoyable

JohnBarleycorn (537) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 15, 2010
Bottle. Chestnut-brown appearance. Aroma leads with pleasant raisin and brown sugar before moving to molasses, burnt toffee and dark malt. Very heavy, almost chewy palate. Flavours inspire with hot chocolate, honey, toffee and a slight bourbon character. Big and good.

Copper pour thin head at redhook. Crisp clean hoppy and bready with a nice finish. One of the best at the brewery.

jehoesefat (271) - Poway, California, USA - APR 11, 2013
Pleasant malty aroma. Pours clear red-brown with a frothy white head. Taste is not too complex, medium sourness. Medium body, average carbonation. Would drink again but not something I’m going to be hunting down!

kiwianer (3339) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 2, 2013
The head is ok, the body is dark red-brown. It smells hoppy, intensive, nice aromatic. The taste is sweet, fruity, aromatic, hoppy, a bit creamy-alcoholic. Overall nice hoppy taste, delicious. 13/13/12/13/12

Aroma of hops, hint of citrus, dark brown colour with a large creamy head with great lacing. Taste of hops and citrus with a mildly bitter palate.

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
