Kronz (2) - USA - DEC 17, 2004
As a fan of Red Hook and winter specialties, I had high hopes for Winterhook, but it was pretty underwhelming. Clearly inferior to other west coast winter ales, I don’t plan on passing up Sierra Nevada’s Celebration ale for this ever again.

gripweed57 (2978) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - SEP 8, 2017
From old tasting notes. Translucent orange amber color with a big yellowish beige head. Sweet molasses, toasted malt aroma. Semisweet malt flavor sports good dry hop character in middle. Well rounded and full flavored. Nicely balanced.

ordybill (1815) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - JUN 28, 2017
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a murky golden brown color with a small off-white head. The aroma is winter spices. The taste is a lot milder than expected, almost watery.

phaleslu (10899) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 19, 2017
12 oz. bottle from gregwilsonstl - thanks again, Greg! Part of his generous Free Beer Week box. Can’t tell you the last time I had any Redhook. This one pours a deep, barely cloudy, slightly browned amber with a finger of beige head that settles unevenly and laces the glass. Notes of toasted and caramel malts, earth and grass and leaves, soap, and mild spice. Light-medium bodied, with a malty, earthy mouthfeel that finishes with a lingering intense soap-like bitterness. Call it floral if you want, it’s just a bit harsh. Not bad, but a little out of balance.

3.4
chinchill (5377) - South Carolina, USA - APR 1, 2017
12 oz 2016-17 bottle. Pours with a dark mahogany body that has excellent clarity and is topped by a durable, foamy beige head. Soapy lacing. Aroma mildly to moderately spicy. Flavor: winter spices, moderate in strength, with earthy hops and faint dark bread. Moderately bitter.

Juks (1202) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 9, 2017
330ml bottle, thank Jaanis. Pours dark golden caramel, medium sized beige head, doesn’t last good. Aroma is malty, caramelly, sweet, hoppy. Taste is hoppy, caramelly, some burnt sugar, malty. metal. Lively carbo, medium body. Nothing special.
