Half finger tan head with excellent lacing on a jet black body. Aroma is very full with vanilla, plum, dark chocolate, bold coffee, brown sugary and roasted malts. Flavor follows with sweet vanilla and brown sugar up front moving to coffee and dark chocolate and finishing with a more dominating coffee bitterness which is just right. Alcohol is well hidden. Definitely the best beer I have had from Red Brick. Full body and light to moderate carbonation. Semi dry finish.

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!
