To honor the burley, Red Brick gives them a beer of masculinity, strength, boldness and one meant for the connoisseur.

Beard Envy is a deep garnet ale with bronzen low lights and a dense foamy cap. Its aromas are just as jam-packed, pushing brown sugar, scorched caramel and fruitcake over the senses.

Fruit and booze follow closely behind with cherry, apple, date, fig and plum- all seemingly of the rum-soaked variety. Lavish in its sweetness, the malts never back down as they wrap the fruit and alcohol spice in a blanket of molasses and port-like viscosity.

Warm and spicy in finish, the hops burst through with citrus peels and pine resins. Bitterly balanced, but the hops stop shy of the intense rival from malt. Its rich taste and texture is off of chewy but simply exudes powerful and manly notions otherwise.

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
