Received this from a distributor so why not try it? Had little expectatins, outside of the rveiews here and the first taster seemed too bitter for an imperial stout. However, after warming up the coffee and chocolate really come to fruition. Nothing like a Speedway Stout, but worth trying for sure.

22oz brown bomber with a freshness date. Blueline series label.

Stout black color, decent tan lacing. Fresh brewed ice coffee, roasted grain, burnt bread, mild molasses and a hint of dark fruit and alcohol in the aroma. Deep smoothness and a little creamy, big roasted flavor open up with each sip. Coffee is layered throughout with hints of dark chocolate and with a hint of alcohol it is almost reminiscent of a tiramisu flavor. Modest hopping, hint of dried dark fruit and charred wood. Finishes roasty with coffee tone, lands semi-dry.

Almost a cup a joe, well done Redhook ... would love to have this brew once in a while when I am hankering for a coffee beer.

Bomber to pint glass in high elevation Libby, Mont. Reviewed live. Bottled on Oct. 8, 2012.

A- One-finger mocha head with rapidly eroding retention. Coal-black color with a nice mocha ring around the top.

S- Coffee, chocolate and roast malts. Warm and toasty.

T- Coffee, fruity and roasty. Quite a nice flavor.

M- Light bodied and finishes fairly wet.

O- Quite a good beer. A new thing in my opinion about Red Hook.

22oz bomber from RedHook's Blueline series claims to have been bottled on Oct 8, 2012. Served cold in a pint glass. Beer pours a rich dark brown, nearly black, and forms a thin head momentarily. Beer sits quite opaque in the glass. Aroma is similarly rich and smells of mocha. Sweet, not like candy, but definitely a treat.

Flavor-wise this beer is all about the coffee. Brewed coffee blends with coffee notes in the heavily roasted malts. But there's no mistaking this for a flavored beer, it's clearly a porter. Peak Organic Espresso Amber Ale comes to mind, though in porter form. The beer is balanced by a bitterness which seems to come from hops more than beans. Overall, this porter is a nice cup of coffee but as a beer it may get old. Still I give it high marks for great flavor and composition. Unfortunately I don't recall how it compares to the older non-Blueline (and non-Caffé Vita) db (Double Black) Red Hook.
