A: really dark brown. fluffy, dense latte colored head. appears to be some sediment/yeast on the bottom of my glass.
S: milk chocolate and sweet figs move into roasted premium coffee.
T: slightly acidic, slightly lactic. starts with the acid from the roast as well as the coffee, moves into a middle ground of solid delicious roast, and finishes with a solid coffee backbone and a touch of alcohol. chocolate milk resides on the palate after consumption.
M: a touch too fizzy. actually distracts from some of the nuances in the flavor.
D: brewed 10/08/2008. bottle looks through it was dragged through a pile of shit (btw this was a straggler bottle in a mystery box). not entirely sure of the conditions this puppy has been through, but i cant notice any discernible defects. overall a tasty brew (im a sucker for the style), but there are others that i find better.

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.
