Bottle. Pours a coal black color with a medium tan head with decent lacing as it dissipates. Aroma of roasted malt, ahint of chocolate and a bit of coffee. Flavor is of roasted malt with some chocolate. This is not as sweet as many porters, something that I liked. There is a somewhat bitter aftertaste, but not bad. A tad thin for mouthfeel. Not bad, though. Not bad at all. I’d like to cook a hearty beef stew using this beer in the stock.

Picked up a sixer at the usual beer place. My first porter experience, and definately a style I will be trying again. Poured a very dark brown/black with very little head. Very good, although not something I would drink often, something I definately would give another try to.

Average porter. Too watery and seems to have the characteristic 'Redhook twang' to it. Still has some nice roasty flavors.

Nice dark Porter. Formost taste for me was carmel. Light chocolate taste next then coffee. Poured with a thick long lasting head. Good lacing. A easy drinking Porter that is a little on the light side. Have had better(fuller bodied) but Blackhook is still good.

Very dark brown with a dark reddish tint in bright light, tan creamy head. Light for a porter but still a nice tasting beer. Nutty roasted malt with a hint of coffee. I recommend this beer, it’s just not as bold as most porters.

Creamy beige head leaves a nice lacing on the glass. Roasted chocolate Malt flavor balanced with hops. Perhaps not enough cholate malt and too much hopping. I was hoping to taste more of a chocolate malt character.

I taste darkness and coffee and roasted malt and sweetness. This is a balanced porter, except one complaint: the mouthfeel is thin.
