Big thank you to easyreader, always sending me the best stuff! Long time want and it lives up. wow this guy is bursting with flavor. Juicy dark fruit coats the mouth. Flavor last and last, great barrel. Really impressed with this one. I bet if this came in a fancy waxed bomber the score would be much higher. Great showing from Red Brick

12oz bottle from Hop City (Atlanta, GA). 12.99/ 4 pack. Red Brick still doesn't bottle date but this just hit shelves this week. Served in a Red Brick snifter.

Pours a beautiful transparent chestnut with a half finger of cream hued head which recedes to a nice sized halo and leaved some good looking lace.

Smells of toffee, caramel, bourbon and vanilla.

Taste follows the nose but with so much more. Toffee, sweet bourbon, caramel, oaky vanilla, chocolate, dark fruit, barrel char, earthen bitterness and a dab of booze. Very enjoyable layers of flavor that help the near-10% abv go down smooth.

Creamy-yet-oily, medium full body with mild-to-moderate carbonation. It has a nice weight to it that settles on the tongue and lingers with it's bourbon and toffee finish.

Red Brick has really been stepping up their game over the past year. This is one of the best beers I've had from them. Slightly bitter for an English barleywine but delicious and easy to drink. This one is worth seeking out to try.

Reddish amber colored body was clear, and formed a two finger thick head in the glass. This looked more similar to a DIPA pour than a darker one I was expecting of a barleywine. The aroma was sweet, with the malts showing up as brown sugar, and hops revealing some orange peel. The taste was quite sweet as well, with the first impression of honey and brown sugar. Mid palette the oak flavors became very evident, as vanilla, banana, and toffee showed up. The finish was quite dry, with charred wood tannin dominating to a slow fade. Quite a light body for the style with a distinct burn late. One of the better beers from Red Brick in my opinion.
