12 oz bottle stating 6% ABV. Nice copper color with frothy off white head. Great lacing. Light malty aroma with some cinnamon and a bit of hops. The flavor sports a full caramel maltiness backed up by a grapefruit hop bite. Hidden between the malts and hops are hints of nutmeg and cinnamon.

Had this on tap at an Old Chicago and it just was not good... not good at all. Maybe it was the place.

Thanks to SefanSD for this brew. Winterhook #29.
Reddish-brown in the glass, nice roasted nose. The beer starts malty, dry. The mainpart is a bit more dry, nicely malty and very nicely hopped. The bitter-hops get more intense till the end, nicely dry with the roasted malt, and still easy to drink.
a very nice winter beer - not sweet and nicely balanced. --> 12/11/12/12

Light tan colour .. some decant head but dies down quite a bit .. some honey notes but muddled ... some flavours but too befuddling to pull out anything real, if that makes any sense.. an average beer but for an english strong winter beer, thin and watery but is easy drinking... McLovin ..

12 oz bottle. Tried this beer right after sampling Troegs Nugget Nectar - which was pretty hoppy. This was a nice contrast. Poured an amber orange red body. Very minimal aroma. The taste was pretty good, nice and smooth. Maybe some roasty notes towards the finish.

Draft at the Woodinville brewpub. Crystal clear toffeeish amber with scant gray head. Musty, sweaty, bready nose. Medium body, very little carb. Mild. Roasty, toasty brown bread on the mid-palate, and sour in an almost rye-like way. Are they using a central keg line back there or something? Not much finish. Company says it "tastes like watered-down whiskey."

BMan1113VR (7922) - Los Angeles, California, USA - NOV 17, 2008
Bottlede on 10/29/08 and drank on 11/14/08. Pours with a huge, fluffy, off-white head and a dark hazlenut body. Some good lacing. Some spicey piney hops and a bit of toasted malt and orange peel in the aroma. Taste is hoppy with some orange and a bit watery compared to the aroma. Some toasted malt and toffee. Creamyish mouthfeel, and light carbonation.

Bottle. Hoppy, fruity aroma. Decent winter beer, nice and fruity, with malt.

PorterPounder (7766) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 31, 2002
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2007 Rerate Pick up a bit of a nectarine-like fruitiness in the flavor this time around. Enjoyable - same score. Original 3.4 Slightly malty aroma, thin, quickly dissipating head with a wee bit of lacing. Nice amber color. Nothing really memorable about the flavor - kind of dry with a bit of a bitter aftertaste little bit of a hoppiness to it - its from the west coast aint it?. Beats the Bud Light that they will be serving at the New Years Eve party I am going to.

i was interested to taste this as redhook is a name you see a bit in beer books. alas it was very poor, slightly nutty but utterly thin and boring
