A solid porter. A bit weak for my tastes, and a bit too sweet. .............

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

UPDATED: JAN 19, 2003 As with all of RedHook's beers, very good, but not quite exceptional. When looking at 8 differfent tap handles, it is a high pick! Nitro version: still quite good. Almost too close to being a Guinness copy.

Roasted aroma, small beige head. Roasted malt flavor. Light body. Hoppy finish

On Nitro at BW3 in Knoxville. Beautiful. Slightly sweet. Chocolate shines through with a slight roasty note. A session porter for sure. I didn't get the lively hopping as described in the commercial description.

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

Pours a black and nearly opaque color with a very mild light brown head that does not hang around. Nose is roasty and nutty. Star is pretty undefined, followed by a very hearty rich nuttyness that is not bitter like the bottle promised. There might be a slightest hint of fruit in there as well. The palate is perfect and feels great going down. A very drinkable beer. There may be some complexity that is lacking.

Typical pour of a porter, very black. Smoky aroma, roasted malt, roasted nuts. Very smooth, nothing smacks you in the face initially, but the finish is a caramelly, roasted malt, nuttiness. Nice sweetness, but not overpowering. The only knock is the lack of a taste initially, otherwise this is a very nice beer.
