COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The 15th Anniversary ale is Red Bricks signature Brown Ale. The Brown Ale boasts a list of ingredients, including 7 malts (Victory, Bonnalander, Caramel 40/60/120, 2 Row Barley, Wheat Malt). Hops include Zeus and Fuggle. Aged in Pappy Van Winkle bourbon barrels for 13 months.

Our 15th anniversary is here! I know we never say it, but Im gonna throw it out there: I LOVE YOU. That felt good. I was afraid it would sound creepy, but no - it was good. And as a sign of our love I made you The Red Brick 15th Anniversary Ale. Its a full bodied brown ale that was aged in a bourbon barrel. It earned the Gold Medal in the 2008 World Beer Cup. (Not that Im comparing them to you...) its high gravity, so be careful: I want this to be a memorable experience for us. Sincerely, Bob - XOXO

Butters (3725) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 17, 2010
Sampled at the Richmond Eleventh. Hazy copper pour with ring of tan head. Nose of bourbon, but flavor is more oakey and vanilla. Cant really pick out much for the original style, but I do detect some brown notes. Moderate carbonation. Certainly not the worst thing Ive had from these guys.

MaltDawg (1344) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 17, 2010
(Sample Date: 4/17/2010 Source:Other) Bourbon is the aroma with some sweet caramel to back. Clear medium copper brown with little head. Flavor is a nice woody bourbon with a citrusy sour twang behind. Alcohol warming is perceptible in the finish. Very nice.

Kinz (3251) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - APR 17, 2010
Clear medium brown. Not really any head. Aroma really is just straight up bourbon. Flavor is surprisingly of rather rich malt, not overwhelmed at all by bourbon. Finish moves nicely into integrated bourbon and oak notes. Really ver balanced and well done.

Bottle from TBS.. Shared at SL...Pours a light orange/red color. Small head... Aroma of some vanilla and alcohol. Taste is a sweet vanilla, oaky, strong malty ale. Not bad, just not my favorite style. The texture isnt thick at all...suprisely light. Thanks matt for the brew

Ibrew2or3 (6760) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 3, 2010
On bottle at the 2010 installment of Stogies and Stouts pouring deep copper sort of brown-ish with thin tan head. The aroma is chocolaty and then picks up large sums of whiskey-ness as well as a light sense of wood. The taste is sweet and kind of bourbony with a little bit of wood along the edges. It then picks up notes of sweet malts sweetness, a thin layer of molasses and then more and more sweet and mildly harsh bourbon booze into the finish.
