Just not what I expected, dark in color with a creamy head but light coffey chocolate taste. Just not much there.

Bottle, Honolulu. Carmel and chocolate aroma. Very dark amber but can still see light through the beer. I like this porter, it is a good tasting beer that is not too heavy. Good on price and taste.

Not as full bodied as most good porters but very drinkable. Slightly hoppy finish.

Not a beer I will drive out of my way to obtain, but the Blackhook should be one of Redhooks frontliners! Its dark stout color rewards you with a clean, hoppy, rich winter-beer flavour. I prefer Widmer Brothers Winter Nakt, but the Blackhook has a nice dry flavour that is palatable pint after pint.

Pours dark dark brown with a tan head. Smells of coffee and dried fruit. Its a good dark porter, all the flavors of a stout are there, just a bit more subdued, the chocolate, the coffee and the dried fruit. The mouth feel is somehow creamy yet thin at the same time. Weird. I usually have medium expectations from Red Hook and this is exactly what I was expecting. A solid brew.

Had this beer on a recent trip to Washington, I was impressed with the rich, black body that smoothed over the palate with mild chocolate in mind. Lovely roasted malts are apparent, however the finish is weaker than expected. All in all, a decent porter. That goes light on sweetness and heavier into those toasty warm malts.

Not a bad beer but is kind of watery for the style. Not very alcoholic and goes down smooth.

Havent had this one since I visited the brewery itself, but it is a very good brew.

lakersfan16 (53) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - FEB 7, 2009
Pours a dark brown with a medium tan head. Aroma is of roasted malts. Light to medium body, nice malty flavor with a hint of chocolate.

In the world of porters this one is a bit odd. I need to try it again to get a better opinion.
