4.1/5  rDev +9.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

bottle poured into tulip shaped glass

Appearance: dark black with a thick brownish head

Smell: The aroma features a complex tropical fruit notes of mango and peach intermingling with classic citrus and pine, as well as a slight hint of cocoa. It is very piney and citrusy overall also blended nicely with a hint of coffee.

Taste: dark roasted malts blended nicely with coffee and a variety of hops mostly on the piney and citrusy side. The flavor is mainly resinous and piney, complimented by a velvety mouth-feel, and finishes with lingering notes of grapefruit and bittersweet chocolate.

Mouthfeel: medium boddied with moderate carbonation and a bitter-sweet, piney coffee dry finish.

Overall: This is an excellent brew by Red Brick Brewing Co. This beer is perfect to enjoy during a cookout. This is definitely more on the sweet malty side. I was expecting more of a hop explosion since they use 6 different types of hops and over 2lbs of hops in each bach, but surprisingly this is fairly balanced--more on the sweet malty side. This is another excellent underrated beer by Red Brick. I would definitely buy this again.

Pours nearly pitch black except for some deep reddish highlights when held to the light,a full one finger tannish colored head atop that clung nicely to the glass as it settled.Piney hops stand out most in the nose along with some of the spicy rye,dark fruit, and bitter chocolate,to me it's very much hop forward.Flavors have a dark bread component to go along with mild roast and earth,there is just a light shot of piney hops,to me the dryness-earthiness is the main flavor profile,only light brown sugar-like sweetness in the finish.To me it's a hopped up porter but I like it,I like it alot.Just solid,no compaints here.

12oz bottle into a FW tulip.

Pours a dark black with a nice beige head. Smell is very much like an imperial stout... i get a ton of roasted malts...but also with a good amount of hops in there as well. Taste is more of the same and very reminiscent of a hopped up imp stout, as opposed to a more IPA forward taste that you see in most other beers of this style. I definitely prefer it this way! Full bodied, medium carbonation.

Overall a surprise treat for me as a big stout guy. Recommended!

3.9/5  rDev +4.6%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Fantastically dark pour, that looked like the deepest shade of brown, and had a two finger thick, beautiful khaki head sitting on top. The aromas were roasty, with typical coffee, toffee, chocolate smell seen in stouts, but with a touch of floral hops lurking in the shadows. The taste was astringent, dominated by burnt, cracked grain, coffee, and some bitter hops. The rye presence was hard to detect in the taste. There was some vanilla, and oak notes in the finish. Very silky mouthfeel, closer to a Porter here than a true Stout. If I can recall, this is the best beer I've ever had from Red Brick. Good job.
