COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A blend of three copper ales. One aged in oak barrels for 60 days. Another brewed with LOTS of dark caramel roasted malts, and one brewed with a blend of sweet and bitter orange peels and star anise. Lots of complexity. Will age well.

Smells sweet. Lots going on here. Tastes like a burnt caramelized orange. Somewhat confusing, but ok. Fizzy and hoppy.

Poured a cloudy amber/copper color with a moderate head. I get a lot of maltiness to the nose on this. A little harsh up front, but finishes very easy. Good roasted notes to this one.

Poured a copper/amber with an off-white, typical head. Aroma of caramel and a sweet taste, almost cloying. Cider notes are also present. A bit sweet and could use use more bittering hops, but I enjoyed this brew.

Dark copper reddish pour. Sweet aroma and also a sweet caramel taste. Overall pretty good, but not nearly as good as Red Brick’s smoked vanilla, which is outstanding.

Toasty nutty aroma. Getting some of the orange peel and spice as well. Flavor is very fruity. Deep purple fruits. Smooth finish. Touch of wood and vanilla. Able to pick out most of he barrels in this which adds some complexity. Probably the most ambitious beer I’ve had from these guys. And it works.

Ratman197 (9782) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - MAY 18, 2012
Bottle courtesy of Craftbeerdesign (thanks Geoff) poured a clear reddish amber with a lasting creamy amber head. Aromas of toffee, fruittiness and light sherry. Palate was light to medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of toffee, cocoanut and fruittiness with a smooth lingering toffee finish.

sloshgator (425) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAY 15, 2012
Caramelly sweetness mixed with bitterness and not much else makes for an uninteresting aftertaste. This is one of the lesser beers I’ve had by Red Brick.

aracauna (3084) - Georgia, USA - APR 21, 2012
The color of sweet tea. The aroma is gorgeous. Vanilla and oranges. The.problem is that while.some of this carries over into the flavor, the finish seems to be missing something.

strongpieman (1494) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - APR 20, 2012
Bottle. Copper red, cloudy (particulate floaters), light tan head. Mild sweet malty aroma, thick, short finish. A pretty good ale -- nothing to run for or run away from.

nearbeer (3708) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 18, 2012
12 oz, Thanks Nathan! Dark copper-brown with a lasting disc of creamy bubbles. Aroma is Milk Duds, tart berries, funky yeast; also hints of prune, alcohol and char. Tastes of molasses, oak, mint, roasted pecan, plum, blackberry, alcohol, vanilla, orange peel, chocolate, spruce. Medium body is lightly carbonated and oily, but well dried by the barrel flavors. Complex, but a mish-mash of flavors that don’t really complement each other. The underlying beer seems a bit small and bland in standing against the barrel flavors.
