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 (291) - 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 (3361) - 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

Luvystypotables (753) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - DEC 9, 2013
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

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 23, 2003
2003 draught. Dark body and soft, frothy head. Has properties of caramel, fruit, and even tobacco with a considerable dose of piney hops in the finish. Aftertaste is a bit astringent, as if from soap. The 2003 is a hoppy brew and quite unlike any true English Strong Ale. I think the recipe has changed (and improved) considerably for this one.

raymow (831) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 24, 2003
Nice dark copper color and slightly hoppy aroma. Decent flavor - tastes like an IPA plus (I just made that up).

irishsnake (355) - Oakland, California, USA - DEC 28, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2004 Winterhook is a very nice ruby-tan beer with an excellent hop nose, mixed with some underlying malt toastiness. The flavor shows primarily the hops (more than Ballard Bitter, certainly). All in all, a good amber IPA, somewhere between Indica and Hop Devil. It would benefit from more malt flavor.

beeriodic (61) - Longmont, Colorado, USA - DEC 30, 2003
Egg white type head, very dee copper color. Very fruity, hoppy aroma, hints of dry-hopping. Nutty, malty flavor with a hop flavor and lingering bitterness in the aftertaste. More in style with a thinnish IPA than an English Strong. Good beer, though.
