12oz bottle from Sprayberry Bottle Shop (Marietta, GA). 10.99/ 4 pack. No bottling date but released in July 2013. Served in a Red Brick snifter.

Pours ink black with a thin cap of tan head that quickly recedes. Very little retention and only a few dots of lace.

Smells of sweet oaky vanilla, bourbon, roast malts and a little char.

Nice blend of flavors. A good bit of smooth, sweet bourbon followed by charred oak, dark chocolate, roast coffee, vanilla, faint licorice, a little piney bitterness, some stone fruit skin and a dollop of booze. Really good mix.

Slick, medium full feel with moderate carbonation. Roast, bourbon and bitter dark chocolate linger in the finish.

Hands down the best work that Red Brick has done. A well made barrel aged imperial stout with the right touches of barrel and stout. I'll be enjoying my stash of this one for years.

On tap at Kickbacks in Jax. Poured into a small snifter. Light, tudor brown head, good retention on a black body. Sticky and soapy lacing. Aroma includes coffee, vanilla, wafer cookies, light chocolate, baking chocolate, white chocolate and faint whisky. Taste flavors follow suit with the coffee malt dominating and all the other flavors dancing all over the tongue. Alcohol is well masked, impressive considering the abv. Very delicious, and dangerously easy to drink.

45°F, 12 oz bottle into a snifter

A: Black, fluid, and a tan-brown head, sticks to the glass, and leaves a nice lacing throughout the session.

S: BOURBON, then some sweet, dark fruit, chocolate.

T: Again, follows the nose. Strong palate attack up front. The fruity, sweet raisin, plum hits first, then some chocolate, vanilla, and coffee. THe bourbon is not shy, and fills out the back end of the taste... leading to

M: A very nice mouthfeel. Carbonated, but not over carbonated. Thick on the tongue, and full in the swallow due to the heat of the ABV. Lingering fruity, sticky notes after you finish.

O: Great BBA. As a local, I will try to find more, and cellar, share and EXTRA these to get the name of Red Brick out to the masses. Can't believe they have been here 20 years!

12 ounce bottle - $3.79 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a black body with a medium-sized, dark tan-hued head.

Smell: Charred nuts, well-roasted malts, cocoa powder, and moist dark fruits wrapped in strapping bourbon barrel notes -- some beers gains the soft, more ingratiating qualities, this beer took on the more hostile elements.

Taste: Accelerated roastiness, coffee hinting, for sure, with touches of burnt nuts. It's a tad astringent but soothed somewhat by the cocoa qualities and some apparent sweetness. Vibrantly raisiny. The barrel character is definitely there, lending some firm barrel notes with a rugged woodiness. Drying, roasty, wood barrel finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Sharp roast, with a strong alcohol warmth - it's a little rough around the edges, but, it's still enjoyable.

On-tap at Oblivion in Orlando. Pours a deep dark black color with a thin tan head. The aroma is sweet chocolate, roasted malts, vanilla and some notes from the bourbon barrels. The taste is sweet and roasted malts up front with vanilla and a lingering warm and boozy finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation. Overall, I feel like this one can definitely need it from some aging. It is just a little too hot at this point for me, needs to mellow out a little.
