Redhook Double Black Stout (with Coffee)

Mmm….very interesting stuff here, for more than one reason. This turned up in GA a few weeks ago and the bottle I am drinking right now is the second time I’ve tried it. The first time I had it I was pretty unimpressed, but this time it’s much better. 22oz bomber from Green’s on Ponce, Atlanta, GA, USA.
Good black color and a decent head. Lace is pretty good. Body is a touch on the thin side but does not seriously detract from the brew.
Nice bitter coffee notes permeate the air but the taste is a little milder. A touch of alcohol there as well, but pretty nicely balanced. Smoothly comes together. Actually in the final analysis the mild alcohol burn is what I remember most.
I like this more than I thought that I would, and if this were given a chance, I think many would enjoy this.
Redhook is a pretty interesting player to me. They really CAN make some decent beer, but it’s a little too hit and miss to really get my full attention – having said that, this is decent.
