Red Brick 21st Anniversary Ale
Red Brick 21st Anniversary Ale is a Dark Saison Aged in Rum Barrels, 9.5% ABV.
This pours with a dark brown/red color. The smell of this is fantastic, sweet rum barrel and oak, dark fruits and some “winter” spices. The taste follows suit and is really enjoyable to start, especially due to tons of outstanding rum barrel flavor. The saison element comes into play towards the finish, a bit funky with a strong flavor of yeast. Getting a slight tartness and some straight alcohol burn on the finish as well.
There are a lot of nice pieces to this beer, definitely highlighted by the sweet rum. I do wish they all blended together a little better though.
