sonnycheeba (5642) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 27, 2013
Nitro. Pours deep, dark brown with a thick pillow of creamy beige head; great retention and some lacing. Aroma is roasted malts, oats, earthy notes, light floral notes, and light toast. Flavor is roast malts forward with supporting earthy hops, dark fruit esters, and light woody notes; dry finish. Medium body and low carbonation.

Genny (12) - Washington, USA - MAY 22, 2011
Had a pint at the Redhook Brewery. A standard porter in color and taste, dark brown and medium, but was disappointed especially in the head: very thin, weak khaki. All in all, I thought it fell somewhat short of what a good porter should be.

Nikiel (879) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 24, 2010
Pours a very dark brown. A pretty solid porter with lots of roasty malts, but lacking when it comes to body.

j12601 (9890) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - OCT 31, 2010
On tap for growler fills at Half Time. Pours a thin black to brown, caramel soda sort of color. Empty malt, light roast and toast, caramel. Low carbonation, thin and roasty. Coffee and roast. Dull and lackluster. Long sad toast and roast finish.

12oz bottle from Liquor Loft. Black pour with a thin khaki head. Aroma of nuts, caramel and brown sugar. Thin palate. Tastes are roasted malts with a metallic vibe.

AirForceHops (6683) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 19, 2010
On tap at Redhook (Portsmouth). Has a nice black color with a tan head. This beer is super smooth and malty. It was more refreshing than I imagined. There is a very slight hop taste in the finish, Good porter

Goodgrief (2016) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - JUL 22, 2010
On tap at Portsmouth location. Dark pour with frothy head and some lacing. Because this was one of the standard offerings, I expected a pedestrian effort, it being Redhook and all. The aroma was virtually nonexistent, but the flavor was a pretty rich roasty flavor with smooth chocolate undertones. Pretty dry in the mouth, buty still flavorful. Not outstanding but a solid effort.

Quite the old logo RB has up for the Black Hook...Ive only had this a few times, and from what I remember, its not all that bad for a larger brewed beer. May try it again at some point...
