COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
20th Anniversary, Brick Mason Series #7, is an Imperial Stout aged in bourbon barrels. We are celebrating our milestone anniversary with a milestone beer that will be the strongest beer in brewery’s history. Rich chocolate and roasted flavors are balanced by sweet caramel malts. Bourbon barrels provide big bourbon notes supported by flavors of oak and vanilla. This beer commemorates Red Brick Brewing Company’s 20 year brewing tradition. And while we’re focused on the future, we’ll never forget our humble beginnings.

madvike (2784) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Bottle - Pours oil black with a thin ring of tan head. Nose is brown sugar, molasses, bourbon, and sweet dark malt. Taste is brown sugar, a bit of ash stuck behind a big molasses base. Marshmallows and chocolate. Slick and medium-thin. Mellow carbonation. Just too big of a beer for me, but I don’t like the style.

From 12oz bottle Pours almost balks with just a touch of tan head. Chocolate malt aroma. Ditto on the taste, with a bit of bourbon on the aftertaste. Chocolate comes out clearer in the aftertaste, too. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

AWISLguy (1372) - Wisconsin, USA - FEB 5, 2014
Bottle from Total Wine in Stuart. Pours a very, very dark brown with a brown head leaving little lacing. Aroma has milk chocolate, caramel and vanilla. Taste is of sweet vanilla, bittersweet chocolate, lotta roast with caramelly malts, some bourbon and some molasses. Smooth and tasty with very low carbonation. Medium to full bodied. Finishes to the alcoholly, lightly sweet side of bittersweet with some length. Very bourbon-y at the end. Nice solid tasty barrel aged brew!
