I was served a chilled pint glass at Brick House Pizza in West Richland, Washington.
A: It poured a dark body that was ruby red when back lit. It had a one finger coco colored head composed of large sticky bubbles. The head receded to a light cover over the surface. There was a dense and lingering lacing.
S: It had a sweet roasted malt aroma with a chocolate and espresso back aroma.
T: It began with a burnt roasted malt flavor that was diluted and slightly sweet. The chocolate was bitter and dry and the coffee was bitter. The alcohol was well hidden. There was a lingering aftertaste that lasted long after the drink was done.
M: It was medium bodied and somewhat watery with very light carbonation. It had a bitter aftertaste.
D: It was a decent brew but fell short of an Imperial Stout. It's body was thin, the flavors were diluted and not well balanced and it was on the short side of being a strong, bold stout.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
