Poured from the 22oz bottle into a standard pint glass.
Appearance- Beer pours reddish black like a porter with a hefty two finger head of foam that clings to the sides of the glass. Lacing is sticky and not unlike a spider web. The beer is strangely clear and visible when held to the light.
Smell- Dry roasty malts with a lot of lighter base malt aromas, very smooth smelling like an English brown and a bit thin on aroma. Hardly any coffee and a slight chocolate aroma. Light prunes also linger as the beer warms.
Taste- Light and not overly substantial. Munich dark malts, light roasts, hints of sulfur, and a hop spicyness. Tastes like a munich dunkel, porter, stout blend, and while this sounds good in my mind, makes for a more watery beer in reality.
Mouthfeel- Light bodied, medium in carbonation, thin, a bit tingling on the tongue, not warming.
Drinkability- Goes down smooth enough, but there really isn't anything striking or coffee like that would have me coming back for more. Sorry Red Hook, you're on your own with this one.

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.
