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.
