22 oz bottle and 8 oz sample. The brew is a dark tea color with just a hint of head over top that settles as a film. There is no carbonation present and there is good clarity on this one. The nose is weak roast and a little tea-like. It comes across as a little watery. The flavor is light roast, mild nut, and a little more tea character and some doughy notes. The hop hits as a very mild spicy pepper on the finish. This one just feels a little muted all around. Mouthfeel is light to moderate with a very minimal carbonation. Drinkability on this one is good. Even though the flavors and aroma are not really doing a whole lot, they are complimentary and work well with the subtle feel and carbonation. This one is nice.

I am sampling this beer at cellar temp poured into a snifter. the beer pours a deep mahogany color with ruby tints. Some fizzy beige head foams up and fades quickly to a thin edge layer.
Aroma is rich and malty with dark fruit, red grape, caramel, plums and raisins as well. I also get just a hint of booze and cocoa in the background.
No real hop presence I can detect. First sip reveals a very fine gentle carbonation and smooth texture. Flavor is all sweet malt with caramel, brown sugar, red grapes and raisins. No booze on flavor. Quite a nice drinkable brew. Definitely more for malt lovers than hop heads, probably why I liked it so much.

Had this at the Redhook Forecaster's pub in Woodinville. This beer is deep woody amber and clear. It has a tan, substantial foamy head that was well retained from start to finish. Thick lacing ringed the glass. There is little in the smell, as Redhook seems to have an aversion to dry hopping even the most celebratory of one-off brews. If there is anything in the nose it's non-descirpt malts. The taste is focused on the malt and there is a distinct processed sugar untertone that almost smacks of cotton candy. There is hoppiness, and it comes in late dragging the finish to a medium length. There is a definite wateriness to this that detracts from the mouthfeel. Also, strangely there is a numbness that sets in on the front of the tongue that I associate with cloves. The 5.5 abv decreases the drinkability of this beer significantly, in my opinoin. There is not enough going on to warrant that much alcohol. Were this a 4.5% beer, it might be a nice session beer.
