Anyone have a recipe for a clone of Redhook's Winterhook Winter Ale? I've searched and can't find one. AG preferred.

Thanks!

according to the redhook website:
Style: Winter Ale
ABV: 6%
Malts: Caramel, Pils, Chocolate, Vienna and NW 2-Row
Hops: Cascade, Willamette, Northern Brewer and Centennial
Bitterness Units: 42 IBU
Original Gravity: 15 degrees plato

I'd describe the color as somewhere between dark blonde and light amber, which make me wonder about their chocolate malt addition. what effect were they going for with such a small addition???

Great beer btw. I'm certainly going to try and do something similar with these ingredients. I especially like the use of pils malt in this beer.
