Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Todd on 10-08-2003

Regardless of whether you spend your winter months on the slopes, shoveling your driveway or just hiding out, Redhook Winterhook is a great way to chase off the winter chill. This year will be our 27th consecutive release of Winterhook. The recipe changes slightly every winter because nobody likes getting the exact same Holiday present year after year. Redhook’s 27th brew of Winterhook has roasted chocolate notes that smooth out the quick, spicy hop finish. The rich body and nutty, malty backbone make this winter ale slighty naughty and very nice.

12oz. Medium amber/orange pour. Just a very thin layer of white.

Aroma, big citrus, milder toffee. A little piney.

Taste, Again, citrus and herbal notes up front. Some muddling fruitcake that doesn't really integrate very well. Some roasted malt, hazelnut saves it a bit. A very lift chocolate is in there as well before the herbal finish.

Light mid and drinks well. Alcohol is non existent. The flavors were just a bit of a miss for me, did improve a bit as it warmed.

Brown bomber into standard pint.

A: average sidepour got an inch of foamy delicious looking kahki head that is leaving thick lacing. Clear copper colored brew.

S: a bit of hops and the malt comes through on the back of the nose. A little astringent but not bad at all.

T: a bit hoppy in a good way. The malt backbone is quite good. has that dopplebock/red flavor that is pretty freakin' delicious. A bit of alcohol flavor creeps in the back after the hop bitter makes its appearence.

M: medium bodied and smooth. Very drinkable.

O: good beer, has all the deliciousness of a good winter warmer and only costs $1.90 for a 22oz bottle.
