Saw a 4-pack and had to try it. While Red Brick's flagship brews are so-so, I've really enjoyed the Brick Mason series, particularly the double IPA and Vanilla Gorilla.
Nice design and name. Poured the bottle into a pint glass.
Deep murky brown/orange, with a thick foamy tan head. Beautiful beer.
Nose is bourbon and malts. Boozy and sweet. Nice but could be more complex.
Taste is very solid for the style. Sweet malts, hints of bitter hops, and some lingering bourbon heat. Slight earthiness with dark fruit. Flavors blend very well.
Great mouthfeel. Not thin/boozy like some barleywines.
Probably my favorite from Red Brick.

A: Dark brown in color with a mocha colored head that is thin but remains.
S: Very strong bourbon smell with maybe a touch of vanilla. Cannot personally pick up any other smells in the overall aroma.
T: Taste is wonderful.
M: Maybe a touch low on the carbonation but overall has a good mouthfeel.
O: This beer surprised me with its drinkability. I was expecting to have to age this beer for quite some time to let it mellow but it is good right from the start. The bourbon is not overwhelming and goes great with the

Poured into a snifter a deep amber tinged mahogany with a thick creamy light beige head atop,great clarity and color.Aromas of caramel/vanilla and toffee really stood out with some drunken fruit thrown in.Flavors are warm and sweet but not over the top in sweetness,caramel/vanilla and dark fruit with that sticky toffeeness,mild leafy hops,and toasted oak were detectable but the malty richness is what this beer is all about.A smooth full feel just adds to the beer.To me the beer is more English in nature with it's big malty tones but either just great.
